what are the features and specifications for a 2018 model
Has anyone experienced problems with the airconditioning not functioning properly in 2016 Honda Civic 1.5 litre turbo model?
Mine can take up to 15 minutes before cold air flows on a hot day and then cuts out again if I turn the fan down or change airflow direction.
Similarly in winter, the a/c doesn't effectively demise the front windscreen as the cold air doesn't cut in for ages.
When will the 2 litre engine be coming out in the Honda Civic.. in Australia?
I'm looking at purchasing the civic hatch RS. Can someone tell me the reason for the reduced boot space compare to the VTI L or LX? Also how have the leather seats held up in regards to creasing at the thigh bolsters?
The boot space is reduced because of the centre exhausts, however it is still a very good size. I've had two mountain bikes in the back with the seats folded down no problem as well as some large paintings and boxes. The retractable cargo blind is also great as you can remove it when you are packing large items and unlike a large parcel tray, it's easy to just throw under a seat.
Interested in civic especially the safety pack on lx.
I heard that the adaptive cruise control doesn't maintain the same speed and accelerate when going down hill?. Is this true?
Most cruise controls, adaptive or otherwise, will accelerate when going down hill .
The Civic's does accelerate more than I would like it to, but only when there is no traffic in front.
If there is a car in front, it will apply the brakes to maintain a safe distance.
If there is no car in front and the car begins to accelerate, I reduce the cruise control's speed setting (e.g. 110 to 100). This solves the problem with a single press of a button on the steering wheel, so it is a minor inconvenience more than a safety problem. If you are wondering- holding down the set-speed button for a second reduces/increases in 10kmh increments, whereas tapping adjusts in 1kmh increments.
The safety pack is awesome and I love the tech. The adaptive cruise and collision avoidance works a treat, and the lane keeping is fantastic- especially on highways.
Hope that helps.
