At Least the Touchscreen Looks Cool - 2016 Honda Civic Long-Term Road Test

The 2016 Honda Civic's touchscreen interface will rightly receive many complaints during our year-long test, but at least it's aesthetically pleasing.

    I don't recall reading anything specific on the Civic other than the weird steering wheel volume control thing. On the Pilot, yes. What are the main complaints? Non-responsiveness? Does it lock up and/or reboot?

    I still need to drive this new Civic. Looked at a Touring at the Car Show a couple weeks ago and the design, materials and value seem outstanding. If it is as good as most reviewers have said, I may entertain the hatchback when available (not need for a sedan in this type of vehicle really). I can put up with some touchscreen issues - and I'm used to using one of the best - the Uconnect 8.4N - in my RAM 1500...

    I AM reading a whole number of complaints about the Android auto system. I wonder how updates will work. Is Android Auto getting full attention from Google? Does Honda have to release firmware updates?

    As much as I would LOVE to get a 2016, I think 2017 or 2018 might be the year for me. Can't wait to get Google Maps in my daily commuter though. Have my phone mounted on my Miata currently :)

    That is an *atrocious* interface. It's bad for a static environment like wall mount (busy, cluttered), but for a moving car you have to pilot? Who approved this design?

    Needs two knobs at a minimum.

    I do not understand the trend to make touchscreens appear to be separate from the rest of the car. Many are doing it from Mazda to Mercedes. This is less egregious than those examples but it's coming from the same place and I don't get it at all. Nobody ever wanted their stereo to stand out from the rest of the dash. Nobody ever wanted their HVAC controls to stand out from the rest of the dash. Why shouldn't the touchscreen be integrated as well?
