Hello! I just picked up my new Civic last night and so far it's awesome! I traded in my 2013 Honda Accord coupe for the Civic Touring. It has been a major change but I love all the new technology the civic has as well as the turbo engine. Thanks for having this forum to help share information about this great car.

Congrats! Let us know how you like it and if you run into any issues. The infotainment system seems to be acting up for a lot of people.
I'm only a few days in to it but haven't ran into any problems at all.

I have no idea why there are four or so extra screens to put icons on, but the one I use with my customized wallpaper looks great!

Comparison?
I traded in my 2013 Accord EX-L for the 2016 Civic Touring. It was difficult to decide between the two.... I ended up choosing the Civic Touring primarily cuz a but smaller (having Mini Coopers, and GTI's in my past, I really don't need a car the size of the Accord and the Civic has a slightly more connected feeling to the road than my 2.4L Accord did.

So far no regrets!

It was a hard decision because I loved my Accord but the Civic Turbo won me over. The acceleration on the Civic is not even comparable to the Accord. The vehicle is lighter and smaller than the Accord which makes it feel like I driving a compact car compared to the sedan that the Accord Coupe felt like. Also the technology that comes with the Civic is definitively a perk. I am starting to have some audio issues as of this past weekend. My radio no longer recognizes my android phone. I had it linked via Bluetooth when I first purchased the car and now it says there is no phone connected. I am currently waiting on a response from the dealership on a resolution.

So strange that it worked at first and then starts to break. I have heard of stuff like this happening over and over with the Civic on the forum. Hopefully it's an easy fix.

AegeanBlue,
That is an easy fix, well a fix that we all need to apply occasionally until/if Honda gets around to a software update: Press and hold the Audio (power on and off) for about 2-3 seconds. You will be asked if you want to reboot. Press YES, and your head unit will reboot and your phone will be up and running.

Having to do that can be annoying but at least it's a solution for now, hopefully they come out with a fix soon enough. With how mainstream of a vehicle this is I doubt they'll let the issue sit around for long. Plus being software makes the process easier.

Thanks for the quick fix @dlinn94. I called Honda's tech support (1-888-528-7876) to have them trouble shoot the Bluetooth issue and they just had me do a factory reset; now it recognizes my phone but I am curious for how long. There is also a software update available that the dealership installed this past weekend, hopefully it fixes all the bugs. So far it looks good

AegeanBlue, the factory reset works, but it also makes you pair your phone all over again. The re-boot keeps your cell phone pairing data, but fixes the connectivity problem. Bottom line is that the re-boot works in about 1-2 minutes, and the factory data reset takes about 5 minutes, and then you have to re-pair your cell phone all over again. So the next time your infotainment head unit doesn't recognize your phone, hold the audio power for about 2 seconds and press yes when ask if you want to reboot. You can do that while you're driving to wherever you are going.

Please let us know how the software update works.
