Separate thread details having the wheel alignment front & back sorted out. Fuel consumption is calculated 45mpg in mixed local driving. On 200 + miles round trip driving at speed limits +, mainly on Motorways, 46 MPG was achieved. According to various reports fuel consumption is every bit as good as 1.0 Turbo version. Performance is just as good as 8th Generation Accord 2.4 EXi manual. This achieved an average fuel consumption of 33mpg. Seat are comfortable but I found those in Civic Type-R GT FK2 more so. A little more thigh support at front would be beneficial. Honda should have provided electrically adjustable front seats in top model so seat squabs may be tilted. In USA/Canada Touring models electrically adjustable front seats are provided but without memory!! Honda needs to gets its act together on this as all Civics for all markets are made in Swindon. Ride is comfortable & was so even before I lowered tyre pressures from posted 32psi down to 30 psi. The posted tyre pressure are for a fully loaded car driven at high speed so are too high for regular use. Useful way for determining advisable tyre pressures is to measure them when cold in ambient shade conditions, drive for at least 5 miles in regular loaded condition then re-measure tyre pressure. If increase is 3psi then tyre pressures about right, if less than 3psi then too high, if more than 3psi then too low. I did this with my car after a 12 mile journey & found fronts spot on with 3psi increase, rear increase was 2psi so could lower a bit but have not bothered. This advice is from Australia where due to extremes of temperature it is important to set tyre pressure to suit the temperature conditions a car will be used in. Except for wheel alignment problem, that only became apparent through having rear cam adjusters greased, the car has so far been faultless.
