    Very very cool. I am thankful for my job though. Also, weird, but to me, where this car has seen some issues, do the people not putting that part on, not look lazy or not care for they're work?

    Because they are not paying as many humans as they used to. Robots.

    Most robots are a good thing in my opinion. Remember, people still have to program and maintain those robots, they aren't stealing everybody's jobs.

    I'm very surprised at the lack of moving floors. Constantly having to walk while working above your head would suck.

    It's interesting to compare this video to the Hatchback one (albeit that one is slow mo). Things like you mention and more are evidence of the recent $300 million investment in the Swindon UK plant.

    The painting booth was the most interesting. Does the paint dry almost instantly? I noticed the inspector was touching the car without gloves, and was standing near the paint booth exit without a mask.

    I remember seeing a similar film when I was a kid from Ford and the paint booth was followed by an infrared booth to bake the paint. The frame (pre-unibody) was actually dunked into a vat of paint and then allowed to drip before baking.

    Ya I'm not impressed on how they leave the paint.. now I understand why I have 3 dried pieces on dirt under my clear coat that look like hairs. SMH, fail in my eyes actually.

    I think honda has room to improve.. year 3-4 of every model seem to be when things tighten up and the intended vision becomes reality. 2020 will be a good year to own a Honda. Sensing should be standard. Interior quality better and extra tech. Maybe internal wifi or larger sunroof. I think its about time auto glass tints with sunlight like optional Eyewear. I hope Honda thickens up the Civic hood. Thats still bothers me a little.. standard all Led lighting.
