Its quite sad actually that Honda got rid of it on the new Civic Type R, meanwhile on a so called premium vehicle, BMW couldn't do it.
I understand its entry-level but a well built entry-level product can make someone a return customer for life
Harsh ride quality from the suspension coupled with the hop did put me off a bit.
