Good handling as it is known for `
Tested this car several times and must say the handling is very good. Multi link suspension at the back does help in corners and road holding. Tyres are good for the original but feels too stiff and makes the car feel like cannot roll easily at certain speeds. Though lacking in safety features but the interior is always ahead of the rest, has digital speedometers, good infotainment system with knobs, rear ac. Wouldn't mind 2 airbags, too many airbags may injure and will obstruct the occupants in a crash to get out safety.

LONG TERM REVIEW PART 2, 78K KM, 4 1/2 YEARS `
HONDA CIVIC 1.6L, 78,000 KM, 4 YEARS AND 6 MONTHS OWNERSHIP, SINCE NEW. Transmission speed sensor and A/C evaporator core failed in Aug 2021. All warning lights lit up in the dashboard while driving. Aircon was spitting hot air. Both parts cost about US$ 200 on Autozone online seller. Parts pictures are below. The speed sensor is a minor part that would take less than 15 minutes to replace. The A/C evaporator however, will require the stripping of the whole dashboard. Like our home A/C, the evaporator is dummy piping in a coil. The pipe and seals may leak due to poor quality of gasket and piping material. The lowest-tech parts failed. Come on, Honda. Sensitive part like ECU's microprocessor and memory chips, I understand if they fail under SGP perpetual humid and hot air. A bunch of dumb aluminium pipe and sensor should have lasted for at least 10 years. Honda Civic reliability (2016-onwards) has been very poor in the US market, especially the 1.5L turbo version. Mine is a low-spec version with 1.6L NA engine. Yet, parts continually break down. I was lucky as parts are still under 5-year warranty but need to pay for labor. That day, Kah Motors supervisor was in good mood and waived the $500 labor charges. Shock absorbers are flat already at this age, as most cars are. This is shock design-specific and not car brand related. Ride feels like my road bicycle: stiff and jerky. Will need to replace all four shocks yesterday. Upgraded the sound system while keeping the original Honda head-unit. Apple Music sounds good with Pioneer's GM-DX874 amp, TS-Z65F speaker (2x), TS-Z65C speaker (2x) and TS-WX130DA woofer. Singtrade (160 Sin Ming Drive, 8-02 Autocity) fitted the Pioneer to the Civic. Excellent workmanship but expensive. Honda original sound system was worse than MRT train's PA system.

Good looking and practical car but with old technical specs `
Bought the 2019 FL 1.6NA Civic. Was bought by the looks and exterior styling of this car that I did not take much notice to the engine and driveability when I test drove the car. Interior space is definitely one of the best in its class with rear aircon. However the infotainment system is laggy and feels like it comes from the 2009-10 era. Exterior looks is one of the best in its class, but the engine is the worst. Old engine which is further restricted by the CVT gearbox and the fuel economy is rubbish for the amount of HP it puts out. And Halogen lights, seriously? Reliability wise is questionable, had a whizzing sound from the engine, went back to agent to check and told that they have no spare parts. Yes you heard it right, a 15 year old Japanese engine with no spare parts. Aircon vents make weird vibrations after 1 year and you can feel the MIT quality which is not as good as the old FD (coming from an FD1). All in all, for the price you pay, there are other better makes out there with better fuel economy and technology available. However, if exterior looks and interior space is your primary concern, this car is a good choice if you do not mind the fuel economy

CIVIC 1.6L - POOR RELIABILITY (4 YEARS REVIEW) `
Bought the Civic 1.6L in Feb 2017. Reliability is very poor. Original battery needed replacement after 13 months. After switching off the camera permanently, battery only lasted 23 months at the most. . Worst of all, warning lights (all of them : check system, check VSA, brake problem, etc) regularly turned on and lasted for 2-4 days. Warning lights turned on again during driving every 2-3 weeks. Honda USA has recalled 2016-2020 Civic to fix its ECU that caused the warning lights. Local Kah won't bother with the recall. . Spark plugs, air filter, engine oil / filter are new. Warning lights keep switched on during driving. . Aircon is very weak in cooling, even at the lowest temp and highest fan speed. Grab Nissan Sunny (15 years old) had cooler and stronger aircon, despite not having rear vent. . Need practical mainstream car ? Buy Toyota Corolla Altis instead. Never buy Civic. Same in USA, it is one of worst car there in reliability.
