Owned for 2 months and I feel good whenever I drive this car, close the windows and it is utterly silent.
I opted for the GT version with Cruise, Panoramic Roof and much more.
I drove the Type R initially and found it very disappointing - this 2.2 Deisel Type S is a far, far, far better car all round than the Type R. I would argue that the Type S diesel would beat a Type R easily in real world driving.
Some really annoying points, however, the front seats do not return to their original… Read Full Review

the only thing bad i found is the plastics... like any other car in this range
but pass easy more luxury cars when confort in the back seats or fun to drive

this car looks fantastic and the 2.2 diesel gt version which i drive gives me plenty of power for the money which i paid. if you want a nice sporty, nippy car without wanting to pay the fuel and insurance cost of the more monsterous type-r then this is a great car for you!
plenty boot room also for its size which is great and the little extras which the gt version gives are a nice touch if you can pick a nearly new one up without breaking the bank
thumbs up!… Read Full Review

I am on my 8th Honda civic. 6th Spaceship one! I love them I had the type R pre-09, the pre-08 type s's, a 5drs, everything you can imagine. I have only ever had 1 problem and the dealer (Speedwell Honda) the best customer service ever. All warranty work whole wind shield replaced within 2 days, car full valet and given back to me. I had car loaned to me for free with fuel. I just bought my 8th civic the new 09 facelift type s gt diesel, orange with all the image kit on and wheels, I… Read Full Review

I have had my Type S coming up to 18 months and do about 110 miles a day in it (nost of it motorway). Apart from a problem with the handbrake when I first got it (it ended up on the drive accross the road!). I can't fault it.
The car drives a dream quick when need be and makes my long journeys a pleasure, I like to sit in it with its funky looks and I love the sleak lines of its exterior!
My fuel comsumption is pretty good (and I don't drive it like a sissy either!). I think if you need a work… Read Full Review

Owned 3 months, I am pretty impressed. Looks good & performs well (if not as good as last Celica). The dash looks ace at night and I like the seats, although they scrimp a bit on the alcantara in places. It understears when pushing on, but generally drives well. I can get 52 (53 quoted average) around the pennines, driving like my dad. I haven't driven it flat out for long enough, but am guessing mid 40's if I do. All diesel figures from the government are very optimistic without doubt.Bad… Read Full Review

I got my Honda Civic type s for Christmas and have had nothing but bother with it. The clutch has failed twice, the pedal completely stuck to the floor and smoke piled out of the bonnet in the middle of the city centre. Then, about a month later I was driving along doing about 65mph when the engine died and the steering lock came on! Contacted dealership and the main engineer said they had replaced a part but couldnt guarantee it was the right one. Several letters and phonecalls later, we… Read Full Review

Had my type S GT for 2 months and have been at Honda at least twice a week with problems, broken door strap joint, broken window seal, indicators didn't work. Ran out of oil. Honda say it's OK for car to use a litre of oil every 625 miles and that you should check oil every time you fuel up. Fuel economy is no where near as advertised. I am struggling to get any more than 42mpg. To fit a dog guard you have to drill holes in trim to screw it in. To fit roof bars you have to cut roof trim. Spare… Read Full Review

I have been on to honda concerning the condensation in my Honda Civic 2.2 i-CDTi Type S which they changed the lights twice for it only to be the same, now they say that there's nothing they can do for it's inside the manufactours specification, then why did they alter them twice? Customer service at honda leaves a lot to be desired… Read Full Review
