The Honda Civic has long been one of America's best-selling compact cars. For car shoppers, the Honda name is enough to convince them to get behind the wheel of a conservatively-designed, well-priced, decently-performing Civic. This year, however, critics have had a few other things to say about the 2012 Civic.
The compact got a facelift last year, and so far, reviews have been, well, not-so-stellar. Which is why Honda has decided to move their planned model refresh up a year, from 2014 to 2013. According to John Mendel, Executive VP for American Honda, "[Honda takes] feedback seriously, regardless of who it's from, and we will act accordingly quickly...a refreshed model could appear on lots as soon as early 2013."1
That's not just any feat, either. The company only recently got back on track after the earthquake and tsunami that interrupted production in Japan earlier this year. And now, the automaker is facing another crisis with the massive flooding in Thailand. Some of their factories may not reopen for another six months.
Scholfield Honda, located at 7017 E. Kellogg Dr Wichita, KS 67207 stands behind the automaker in all of their endeavors, and we're excited to see what they have up their sleeve for the next-gen Civic. That said, be sure to stay tuned with us for continued news and updates from Honda.
