The Honda Civic has been taking beating with reviews saying the car has dull styling and driving dynamics, poor interior materials, and many more reasons. Consumer Reports didn’t put the Civic on their list of recommended vehicles for this year.
Honda’s CEO Takanobu Ito told reporters this week that he takes full responsibility for the Civic.
"The ultimate responsibility rests with me. We take inputs from the various markets with sincerity ... and try to work out the best actions for what we have observed. Those decisions rest with me," Ito said.
Honda has pushed up the refresh for the Civic to 2013 to fix the problems the current model has.
