    2016 Civic

    Anyone else like the upcoming 2016 Civic?

    I'm thinking about exchanging my 05 Accord for a new Civic.

    I like the reliability of Honda motors but their transmissions SUCK ASS. We've had 1 Accord and 3 Civic and ALL OF THEM had transmission issues. half of them were manuals and half were autos.

    I do like the look of the new Civic but I would be hesitant to buy any first run of a new model. Give it a year for them to get all the bugs out.

    We currently have an '08 Civic EX sedan. The auto trans has had an issue since it had 5K miles on it (it now has about 70K). It never got worse, but it's mighty annoying. Honda told us to pound sand unless it failed completely while it was under warranty. That is shitty customer service if you ask me. We are done with Honda after this one.
    Please excuse my resting a$$h0le face.

    I have owned 7 Honda's and 4 were Civics. The last Civic was a POS, and
    like Hawg I will probably never buy another one.

    I know the 2003 V6 Accord had a really bad transmission.

    Maybe y'all got lemons?

    1st year of a new generation always has issues. I'll wait for the reviews first.

    "Look honey, a new Honda!" (honey looks longingly towards the mailman) "It's got the latest in CVRS HTPM crap, and ... well...IT'S a HONDA!
    Honey is seen months later with some guy doing dirt trails in a Jeep in Hollister.............

    (guy) "but I can cruise in HPV mode while updating my facesplatt profile in the HUD" "It's really swell, yeah?" *whimper whimper.....Plus, it's got the ECOV EcoBoost that injects pure alfalfa pathos into the GREENBATT for extra stoopid'ness............Honey?

    Hey OP, buy a car, or a truck, you've got children for gods sake.. don't saddle your crotchfruit with the stigma of 'Dad' asking an Internet forum which honda he should buy. They'll remember this...

    After seeing the trouble my girlfriend has had with her 2007 Civic I wouldn't get a Honda. Her car even had the engine block crack at around 60K miles. BUT, they did repair that for free under some "secret" warranty. But last year she had a relay get stuck and drain her battery. More recently her starter failed and she also needed an an engine mount.

    I once owned a 1989 Honda CRX. I put alot of kilometres on it over a short period of time but it was ok. I didn't have it long enough for anything to go wrong.

    I've own several other cars since then. Whenever I'm in the market for a new car .. I always look at the Hondas and compare. But I never bought another Honda.

    This spring I was in the market for a new car and I looked at the Hondas again. All those Hondas looked the same and when I started comparing with other brands ... I found better value.

    I'm not asking the internet which car I should buy. I'm asking your thoughts on the new civic

    As a family car, we plan on purchasing an SUV, which will mostly be driven by my wife.
