Review of 2012 Honda Civic Si

Posted on: May 9, 2011 | In Honda

For years people have been saying that the Honda Civic is just another face in the list of cars that are out there. That the car really does not have any distinguishable features about it that makes people want to have it. However, Honda is hoping to change this with the new 2012 Honda Civic Si that is being released. They are hoping to get back the magic that they once had that made people want to have the Honda Civic. However, did the Honda Civic Si get back the magic that has long been lost for some consumers?

 

There are many specifications about the Honda Civic Si that are going to be slightly different from past models, however, in order to full understand what all the Civic Si is offering,

the specifications must be known:

  • A combined 31 miles per gallon (which is by no means amazing when compared to other models that are on the market that are getting tons of more gas mileage)
  • 6 Speed Manual Transmission that is going to definitely get some people excited as more and more automakers are not offering manual transmissions even as an option
  • 13.2 gallon fuel tank
  • can hold up to five passengers, though the back passengers may be a bit cramped when riding long distances
  • 4 wheel anti lock brake system with disc brakes in the front and drum brakes in the rear for optimal stopping power
  • 2.0 liter I-VTEC four engine
  • 201 horsepower
  • can only use premium fuel in car
  • a shortened wheelbase is one of the dominant features of the car
  • harder suspension for a smoother ride

 

With all these changes and specifications, the main question that people are asking is whether this new Honda Civic is going to be the revolutionary product that people are wanting in a car? The professionals that have been given the opportunity to test drive this are a bit hesitant on saying yes or no when they are deciding on this. They state that there is great improvement on the braking power which was definitely needed. However, there is still not the power that people are expecting with a car that is considered this sporty. The ride is a bit smoother and the person is going to find that this is much more accommodating for the times in which they are riding longer.

However, the person is going to find that the ride is almost too tight to really be comfortable and this is perhaps the biggest drawback that people are talking about. Due to the small size that is in the vehicle most people find that this is not going to work for those that are trying to travel with their entire family. For the single person that does not have children or a significant other, it is going to be a perfect fit. For others, they may be a bit disappointed. However, it is a small compact car that is expected to get great gas mileage and so forth. Is this car winning in the category? It is a bit better than the past models, but a little more time could have went into making it better.

Honda Gives US Plants Production Timeline

Posted on: March 31, 2011 | In Honda

Starting today, many Honda plants in the United States are going to see that their production is cut down by nearly half as the company has decided to do this since the plants in Japan are not able to work on a full-time basis. Most people are finding this odd since Honda does do business with a number of manufacturers in North America that produces the components of many of their vehicles. However, they still do rely on a few parts from Japan, and this is just going to show how one part that is no longer available, can halt the production of the cars altogether. 

 

However, not all the plants in the United States are going to be shut down at the same time or for the same amount of time. The headquarters has stated that these shutdowns are based on the availability of parts for those plants that are making a certain vehicle. The company released information on each plant in the US that is going to be affected. The plant located in Maysville, Ohio will run four hours on each shift on lines one and two. In Allison, Ontario each shift will run for four hours a day. The same can be said for plants that are located in Lincoln, Alabama, and Honda's Greensburg Ind. Those plants that may not see much difference are those that are located in Mexico, the plant in Anna, Ohio and the plant in East Liberty, Ohio who will be running based on the production that is needed. 

 

Honda has declined to say what parts are in shortage and are the reason for this decrease of work time. However, they did say that those who work at the affected plants have three options. They can stay at the plant during those hours in which they will not be actually producing cars and get paid, they can take a vacation or take time off without pay. 
 
 

2012 Honda Civic

Posted on: March 14, 2011 | In Honda

The 2012 Honda Civic is one of the cars that the public is ready to experience. For the past thirty-nine years the Civic name has been one of the best selling smaller cars that are on the market. And with introduction of the ninth generation Civic, this trend is not going to cease. The new Civic is everything that consumers are looking for, they are sporty, good looking cars that are going to give the performance that people expect. However, probably the biggest news for Honda is that there are going to be several different versions of the 2012 Honda Civic that goes on sale for consumers. 

 

2012 honda civicThe first is the standard coupe or sedan Civic. This is the basic version of all those that are available. However, even though these are basic, people can still expect to get around forty miles per gallon from these cars. The introductory price of these new Civics has not been released yet, however, they are sure to keep with the mode that they always have in offering affordable cars for all those that need them. 

 

 

The company will be offering the two version of the Si Civic, which is the performance car of all the models being offered. The 2012 version is going to have even more power than past Si versions have had, which is sure to make them a fast seller off the lots. The cars are going to be equipped with a 2.4 liter i-VTEC engine that is going to improve performance drastically when compared to older models. 

 

There is going to be a version of the Civic Hybrid offered that is going to offer amazing gas mileage.

And the person can expect to get around forty-five miles per gallon with this car. Plus, they get the knowledge of knowing that they are getting a car that is considered a great way to save the environment. 

 

Probably the biggest news for the 2012 Honda Civic is that they are planning to release a Civic that runs on a natural-gas alternative fuel variant. However, whether this car is going to be available everywhere is still undecided. Those that are able to get their hands on one of these are going to have one of the newest technologies to hit the market in a few months. 

 

Honda is also excited about the Civic HF, which is one of their newer concepts that are going to become one of the Civic family. This car is expected to get around forty one miles per gallon. 

 

The company took this time to make a few changes to the looks of the Honda Civic in order to give it more edge and have it appeal to younger crowds. One thing that people are going to notice is that the fenders are changed. The fenders give the car a more sportier look that has a fierceness about it that it has lacked in the past. The cabin has been lowered and lengthened in order to make the car handle better through those tight curves since it is now sitting lower to the ground. Overall, most people are going to impressed by the new look of the Civic, it is still going to let people know immediately that it is a Civic, however, the 2012 versions are the Civic with a bit of attitude. 

 

Some great news for consumers that are interested in purchasing these 2012 Civics, is that Honda is allowing consumers to choose what they want in their interior. They are truly making it to where the new Civics can be completely customized to the consumer that is purchasing it. Which means that everyone can get the exact kind of car that they want with the added benefit of having one of the newer cars that are out there without having to give up their arm or leg as payment.

The company is eager to start selling these as they do believe that consumers are going to find that they have reached out and made a car that everyone is going to love.

Make It or Break It Time for Honda

Posted on: December 16, 2010 | In Honda

Honda recently posted around a 16% increase in sales for the month of November, which puts them ahead of Toyota, their main competitor. However, many professionals are saying that, despite this increase in sales, Honda is no longer appealing to the public as it once was. The reason? Many people are finding that their cars are just not having that edge that other vehicles have. For example, their best selling car the Honda Civic, has been unchanged for years. Yes, there have been a few improvements here and there, but ultimately the public has lost interest. 

 

Honda is taking this time to make sure that they are still competitors in the auto world and are making drastic changes to their Honda Civic. But will this be enough? Professionals are pointing out that many of the new cars that company is producing are just not making the cut. For example, the Acura ZDX. Which many people have never heard of, and that is why the professional world believes that Honda is losing out.

 

When looking at the history of Honda, the company seems to perform well when the market is down. However, as the market improves, Honda becomes less and less desirable. Many professionals are pointing this out as being the main flaw of the company since all figures are pointing to the market beginning to revitalize. This could mean that Honda is left in the dust. Especially since Honda has a stance in which they are not forcing their brand on the public, unlike other automakers who advertise constantly and offer great deals for consumers to purchase one of their vehicles. 

 

With the new Honda Civic getting ready to make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show, this is literally going to be the sink or swim time for Honda. If the car does not do that well, then the Honda brand could become extinct over time. On the other hand if the car is accepted, this could mean a whole new world for Honda. 
 

2010 Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV with Leather and Navigation

Posted on: November 1, 2010 | In Honda

The 2010 Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV offers consumers a satisfying combination of exquisite design and exceptional fuel consumption rate, all at a market price that remains within the range for compact vehicles. If you need an eco-car, with acceptable performance and comfortable interior, there are no better alternatives than this hybrid model. The 2010 Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV is extraordinary in terms of fuel economy with some added advantages such as leather interior, heated seats, XM Satellite radio and a GPS navigation system with voice recognition. This model is configured as a four-door sedan, making it likely that many sedan users are interested with this model, as it offers a far better fuel efficiency than common sedan models.



Performance


Hybrid vehicles are generally not qualified as a performance sports car and 2010 Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV is no exception, even so many early users consider it as a car with good handling. You could say that obvious considerations for buying this hybrid car model are its impressive fuel economy, sporty exterior design and elegant interior. Those who are looking for a sportier car and good fuel economy, should choose Mercury Milan Hybrid instead.


The claimed fuel economy of 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV is 45 mpg on the highway and 40 mpg on the city, thus it can be considered as one of the most desirable city car in the market. It’s powered by a 1.3 liters four-cylinder engine, which works in conjunction with an electric motor to produce a total of 110 horsepower. The gearbox is configured based on the CVT (continuously variable transmission) design.


Handling and Braking

The 2010 Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV has superior handling compared to other cars in its class, but it still doesn’t guarantee a high performance driving. Unfortunately, the handling and braking performance of 2010 Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV is not among its best features, in fact the common complaint of those who own this model is related to handling and braking on sharp curves and high speed.

Interior and Exterior

The 2010 Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV is not much different from the conventional version; it uses the same basic concept, although it incorporates an electric motor that offers far better fuel economy.

Some of the points that should be highlighted are limited baggage capacity and unintuitive navigation system. The front seats are quite comfortable and spacious; it would be easy for the driver and passengers to find a comfortable position quickly. However, someone with very large stature may have some problems in finding a comfortable position and should choose Toyota Prius V instead, which cost of $ 1,500 less than this model.

Battery


A few early owners claimed that the batteries on 2010 Civic Hybrid CVT died before the specified time, they also complained that Honda offered less than satisfactory service when users seek for warranty repairs on the hybrid battery. Allegedly, some Honda dealers even declined or refused to change defective batteries and instead opt for a less elegant solution by altering the car’s computer program code to reduce the usage of the battery and electric motor and increase the internal combustion engine utilization. By not changing defective batteries, this may save Honda a good deal of money, however, will result in far lower fuel economy, which is almost comparable to a standard car.



Price

Finding a good market value for a hybrid model, is not an easy task, so if you know the basic price from the manufacturer and add it with the costs of shipping and handling to your country, you can get an approximate final price, which should be the correct market value. The 2010 Civic Hybrid CVT AT-PZEV with Leather and Navigation is the more expensive trim of this model, which is about $3000 more expensive than the basic model (without Leather and Navigation).

2011 Honda Civic Review

Posted on: October 30, 2010 | In Car Reviews

The 2011 Honda Civic is returning to the market basically unchanged from the 2010 model. However, there were no significant changes the needed to be made because the Honda Civic is considered the one car that other manufacturers are trying to compete with since it offers such good engineering and reliability for consumers.

 

The styling of the 2011 Honda Civic keeps with the artsy design that Honda has implemented on past Civic models, they kept with the nose and tail end changes that they implemented on new Civics starting in 2009. The Civic also sports a severely raked-back windshield which helps give the Honda Civic more aerodynamics. What is so notable about the styling of the Civic is that it has many of those classy touches that Honda uses on its more upscale brand Acura, meaning that you are getting a great deal on a car that is well worth the price.

 

 

2011 honda civic

The mechanics of the 2011 Honda Civic keeps with what earlier models have used, except there are less 2011 Honda Civics that will have a manual transmission. The models DX, LX, and the upscale EX lines will offer the typical 1.8 liter engine with 140 horsepower and will offer a 128 pound of torque per foot. The Honda Civil EX-L sedans, EX sedans and EX-L coupe are only going to be available in automatic transmissions, which are a change from the previous model year.

 

The sportier 2011 Honda Civics, the Si coupe and sedan will have 2.0 liter engines, slightly bigger than other models that will offer 197 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. Plus, they had the exclusive six speed manual transmission that is able to give drivers to get the full race car feel with half the price of other cars that are designed for this specific reason.

 

The 2011 Honda Civic also offers the Hybrid option that many people will once again take advantage of because of the benefits to the environment as well as their wallet. The hybrid will come as a sedan only that has a 1.3 liter gas engine accompanied by an electric motor. The electric motor will be able to take you short distances, however, is more or less there to help the main gas engine to save more gas.

 

What changes can people expect with the price of Honda for the new 2011 models? The price difference is not much really, a low $150 will be the difference between a 2010 Honda Civic and a 2011 Honda Civic. However, the cost of the 2011 Honda Civic will really depend on the dealer and the consumer's negotiation skills in the end.

 

What is most notable about the changes to the 2011 Honda Civic models is that the newer models have lost some fuel mileage when compared to the 2010 Honda Civics. It is estimated that the 2011 Honda Civic will get around 40 city miles per gallon, while getting 43 interstate miles per gallon. Te 2010 models offer 40 miles per gallon when traveling in city traffic, while the interstate miles per gallon were around 45.

 

Every 2011 Civic will come equipped with anti-lock brakes, a tilt steering wheel, adjustable drivers seat and power windows. However, to get those features such as heated and/or leather seats, alloy wheels, ability to have navigation on board and other extras will have to step up from the base model 2011 Civic. All of the extras will cost the consumer. In fact, having an on board navigation system can set the person back an additional two thousand dollars.

 

In addition, a buyer can be certain that they are getting top of the line when it comes to comfort, as all models of the 2011 Honda Civic line still have the independent suspension that promises that the car handles and rides as well as any luxury vehicle out there on the market and even the hardest drivers will appreciate the handling of the Civic.

 

All in all, Honda Civic has kept with what people expect from the Civic with the 2011 models. They are priced reasonably and competitive with other cars that are in the same category, and give buyers the options to have all those extras that sets the Civic apart from the other manufacturers out there and making it what once again one of the best smaller car on the market.
