Hey gang!

Just signed the papers tonight for the 2016 Civic EX.

I am insanely happy as this will be my first "import" vehicle. Had a Ford F-150, Chevy Impala and GMC Terrain previously.

Funny thing is I am 6'6 and was shocked that I actually fit in this car, so it was a no brainer after seeing all the features. Looking like I wont get it until next week but I am stoked!

Congrats on your new cars @thepixelsedge, @Yeti and @StewPiddass!

@Yeti: The nice thing is that even with the front seats pushed back to accommodate your height, there's still plenty of leg room in the rear seats for your passengers. The rear seats are much roomier than my 2006 Civic.

@thepixelsedge: Glad you had a good experience with your dealer and that you got your car on time! I had to call mine 3 or 4 times on the expected delivery date and they kept pushing back the time or didn't call back. When I finally called the third time, they said they had been waiting for me for an hour (even though no one called me to tell me it was ready) so I had to rush over there right before closing and zip through the paperwork. Kind of took some of the fun out of the process.

@StewPiddass (no offence): That's cool that the car would have been made right in your back yard. I love knowing that my car was built here in Ontario. :)

Ive been starting to see them on a much more regular basis. Its funny, the ones i see are either Touring or LX. I've only seen a couple EXs and 1 EX-T, which was an Aegean Blue last week on the 401 in Ajax. This morning at the gas station, i was next to a guy in a MSM Touring and we talked about the car for a minute or two.

I work at a Costco Gas Station and im averaging about 1 Civicx every two days coming through our station. I catch Lots of guys in older SIs checking out my car while they pump tho... All the civicx owners also love chatting about their new wheels... Luckily I haven't really heard any complaints about the car from any of them either.

Seems Honda has either fixed most of the bugs or they're shipping the buggy ones down to the US.

EDIT: I have yet to see a Touring or EX-T other than my own EX-T on the road or at my station

I've seen quite a few '16 Civics around here in Milton and Mississauga - seems like a lot more in the last few days - but I think I've only seen one turbo and no other Tourings on the road yet.
I've seen a few EX's around the Square One area and a couple of Tourings closer to the dealership at Dixie/401. Most of them don't share the same enthusiasm in seeing their fellow Civic. Where's the love?

LOL, i noticed that too. Whenever i pass one, im trying to make eye contact with the driver but they dont seem to notice. Last week I was in the middle of an intersection waiting to make a left turn, so i was directly in front of a white CivicX who was waiting at the red light. I quickly tried to make eye contact with him but he was looking off to the left somewhere lol. Most of the glances and head turns I get are from people driving older Civics

Ha ha, I do the same thing. Most of the people don't look but I did lock eyes with another guy in a silver CivicX a few weeks ago while I drove past his parked car. It was funny how we were both rubber-necking at the same time.

I pulled into this small parking lot in Mississauga yesterday to find two black CivicXs parked across from each other so I had join in and take a pic of us all together - one LX, one EX-T (first one I've seen so far) and my Touring. Seems like they're getting more popular. I'm glad I got my caliper covers to help make it stand out among what is sure to be a much more common occurrence.

Haha, thats awesome. I saw a Coupe for the first time in a Sobeys parking lot this morning. A WOP Touring. There was a middle aged woman sitting in it but she was looking at her phone when i drove by her. Also saw a silver EX at a stop sign. I exchanged a quick glance with the guy in it. Also saw a black LX and a white EX. All in all i saw 4 on a quick trip to the grocery store, including a coupe.

Are your caliper covers from Honda? Im digging them. How much were they if you dont mind me asking?

Checking in from Ottawa, Ontario! Picked up my WOP EX-T 2 weeks ago on March 21st and I'm in love! I have yet to run into any problems that some others on this forum seem to be having so fingers crossed.

I've seen LX and EX models on the roads here but I have yet to see any EX-T and Touring models; I'm sure there are some though.
