    2017 Honda Civic Type R Review



    The closer the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is pushed to its outer limits, the sooner it becomes clear that this car is something special.

    Hustle into a corner at, say, seven-tenths or more and there’s nary a hint of understeer, the sworn enemy of front-wheel drive. It’s the same story when mashing the accelerator at the apex, with torque steer virtually non-existent, the car pulling hard as it climbs through the gears.

    So this is what all the hype’s been about.

    Been waiting for this car to go on sale since they announced it.

    the issue is locating the car with the color I want with the price I want .... i've been denied by dealerships and I offered to pay 40k otd with a 17k down payment .........

    pretty frustrating.

    Is each dealership getting just one?

    Pretty unethical has anybody complained to Honda Corporate when this sort of stuff happens.

    Mark ups are a normal thing here for these type of cars in the USA unfortunately. They asked for 44k plus TTL. I was like "umm... no thanks"

    I'm already willing to pay 1500-2000 above msrp by telling them 40k otd and they still said no. With that much down payment and a great credit history, I'd be able to walk into a subaru dealership and buy a STI without any questions asked but can't buy a civic

    As I expected. They're going to rape consumers for a big check.

    Unethical, but legal. Thats the difference and there is nothing you can do about it.

    Just don't buy it...eventually prices will come down once, the wow factor wears off.
