The touch screen has been a little glitchy a couple of times, and I've had to reboot it when the display freezes.
Ugh - that stupid screen of death! And rebooting ie. engine off/on is not really an option unless you pull over. I wonder if there's just a bit too much tech these days and its not quite there yet. Plus the e brake recalls on the 2016s. Seems like the tech is taken to an extreme.

I just held the power button until it asks if I want to reboot. It's worked both times. I've had to do it when the display freezes--l was listening to XM and the song display stopped updating, or I couldn't change channels with the preset buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Wondering if the 17 hatches will have the parking brake issues, too.

I love that they included the Aero Kit and the 18's also looks amazing, I'll admit the lower trim wheels are bland. You're right even putting the Exhaust in the middle looks better.

Hopefully the December delivery estimate stands of course I wouldn't mind if it arrives earlier. LOL
I thought that the aero underbody kit only came in red? It looks like that isn't the case. I'm so happy it isn't only red.

I made sure, my sales and I went through the details. If it wasn't I would've bought it regardless, I'll even get the Ralley Red if have too. LOL

I love the Aero Kit Honda offers just too expensive as an option so I'm happy it's included.

My boy bought the Coupe earlier this year, recommended it but I couldn't push him to get the kit. Too bad.

I believe as an accessory it only comes in red. Hopefully I am wrong.

It looks like it comes standard in black on the Sport trims.

That is SUCH good news. I was really dreading what the red kit would look like on a white car :O

You people realize the red aero kit that is listed as a dealer installed accessory is completely different from the kit offered on the Sport/Sport Touring models right? It's not like they're physically the same, just painted a different color. If you want the black ones off the Sport, you'll have to buy it as a 'replacement part' and install it manually without the accompanying instructions.

And even if you buy the black as a replacement part the rear part would only fit properly on the Sport models due to the center exhausts. :/

Lol! Don't mean to be rude, but if you've been paying attention to any of the other threads.....he definitely got it in CVT. The manuals are not here yet, despite reports of people seeing them show up on cars.com. The only reason I don't have a Sport yet is because of the wait for the Mythical Manuals.

Molatte asked earlier in the thread for a pic of the instrument panel, I second this. I have not seen a picture posted yet of the Sport Instrument cluster. If it exists somewhere please provide link.
Here's a link to Honda of Mansfield, OH with some nice pics including interior pics.

Just picked up a 2017 Civic Hatchback Sport. First time owning a Honda and am loving it so far. My other car is a dodge neon Srt4 and I was worried the Civic would feel woefully under powered but the little sucker gets up and scoots. Any other Hatchback owners around yet?

Looks great. Congrats. I'm envious, still waiting for my sport hatch, was supposed to be built 9-8, not showing to dealer until late Nov. Enjoy it. I've had many Honda's, including motorcycles. Always good.

A lot of people will probably just buy the front lip and that's it.
