    Honda Has A Lower-Cost Civic Type R in the Cards

      NHTSA Paperwork Strikes Again!

    The only way you can purchase a Honda Civic Type R is the fully loaded Touring trim with adaptive dampers, navigation, LED headlights, etc. Possibly, you might have to pay a 'market adjustment' price - i.e. a dealer adding a few grand to the price to make a quick buck. But 2018 could see Honda introduce a base version of the Type R.

    The Truth About Cars uncovered NHTSA certification papers filed by American Honda for the 2018 model year. The papers reveal two Civic Type R models, 'Type R' and 'Touring'. Both models have the same engine code - K20C1 which corresponds to the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder. 

    As we reported back in June, Honda is considering adding more Civic Type R variants to "broaden the audience and keep sales fresh." One way to that is to introduce a lower-cost model. Honda already sells one in other markets that lose out on the navigation system, parking sensors, and LED lighting.

    A lower-cost CivicType R.  Sounds like decontenting to me.  By the way, what would call a decontented Civic Type R?

    Considering they sold most of what they built for ten grand over sticker, not sure why they want to make this move.

    Honda is infuriatingly irrational.

    Because then they can sell more of them to people who can't afford the original

    Not so sure about that one.....just offer different options on the current one instead of all this other stuff....

    That will not happen. Honda likes to keep it simple when it comes to vehicle configurations.

    Sounds like a proper Type R. Let's lop off all those ungainly body protrusions while we're at it. Then we might be talking.

    If you lopped everything ugly off of that thing you would be left with a wooden tooth pick.

    But when they re introduce this next year they will build 3000 copies and sell them for ten grand over.  If they mess with the exclusivity their fanboi base is going to be pissed.

    Given the styling on the latest Accord, walking and chewing bubble gum is complex for them.  But yes, they love to keep it simple.

    Now that is true as well....

    Would be nice if they shook things up a bit though....

    Looked up S2000 production figures and was surprised (110K worldwide). I hardly saw them when new and they seem to have already disappeared in the years since.

    In it's own way a sublime automobile but very expensive for what it was...like 35 grand in 1002, equivalent of maybe 50 grand plus now.

    They're garage/trailer Queens these days. Nice examples are being preserved. Rough ones are being raced.

    This is so true, 3 of my coworkers have them and 1 only drives it on sunny warm days. The other two have them on trailers as they race them only.

    Not a car I have ever been impressed with.

    A guy across the street a couple houses down from me has a gray S2000...I've seen it out a few times over the summer on weekends, but he mostly drives a late model F150.  There is a bright yellow one a couple streets over parked outside that's been sitting there since I moved in, doesn't look like it's driven much.

    Prices on all of them are going up.

      The JL Generation of the Jeep Wrangler may have improper frame welds according to an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).  The investigation started after a Wrangler owner complained about a frame that had been improperly welded at the factory. As a result of that improper weld, the owner found a number of other problems stemming from the original issue. 
      While no findings have been released, there is enough evidence for the NHTSA to warrant further investigation and the agency has asked FCA for more information regarding the issue.  The NHTSA seemed to think that FCA's explanation "did not adequately address whether the frame weld quality deficiencies compromise the structure integrity of the vehicles, and therefor may pose an unreasonable risk to motor vehicle safety."
      The investigation further aims to determine if the earlier reported 'death wobble' is related to the frame welding issues. FCA issued a fix for the 'death wobble' last month, but did not turn it into a full recall. Jeep will install a new steering damper, free of charge, to anyone who wishes to have the work completed.

    • Wow, 6th of June and no one has spotted anything interesting to mention even when out for Groceries. Today was a weird day as I found a very rusty Yugo, an old baby powder blue Chevrolet Luv Truck and a Yellow rusty Datsun mini pickup. Have not seen any of these auto's in years.
    • No. You cannot do that.  100% agree with you. Absolutely true.  No you cannot let people run any city down.  100% correct there also. Yes. EXACTLY!  And not only a right for Americans only. For EVERYBODY!   But there comes a time when protesting does become...less than friendly...for the GREATER GOOD of the party that NEEDS ITS VOICE HEARD because otherwise.... Ive got 2 examples.  And one that includes the start of the birth of YOUR country... 1. Boston Massacre where "unruly"  colonists  frustrated by British soldiers in the streets flung snowballs at the redcoats and and the redcoats in turn opened fire at the mob killing 5... Then the Boston Tea Party happened a couple of years later and then...well...its in the history books. 2. The French Revolution with all the "let them eat cake" stuff...   Now...in THIS situation...looters and anifa shyte and all that...well, Ill agree with you, peaceful protesters protesting the death of George Floyd is one thing, looters and shyte distubers is another.   That 75 year old man that was pushed by that cop...  I hope we can agree that that old man had a RIGHT to protest...  And I hope we could agree that that 75 year old WHITE man was NOT a threat and was NOT a looter...  Shame on that cop for pushing him down.  I dont know all the details, but If I was that man's son, Id find out who that cop was and he would have a helluva time with ME!!!  Legally or...ilegally... About the bad cops comment.... Yes there a few bad apples. But Ill tell you one thing:  There a few professions that 1 bad apple is 1 too many... Doctors.  Commercial airline pilots. Teachers.  Judges and police officers.  There SHOULDNT BE any bad apples in these professions... Yes it happens.  With cops.  It has gone FAR TOO LONG!    How did we get there?   Notice the whole world is protesting. Im sure in London England, Paris France, Montreal and Toronto Canada are all with George Floyd, protesting for all black people in the US, but Im pretty sure they are also voicing their protests concerning THEIR VERY OWN police forces...   I know in Montreal, we are voicing our concerns over our own racist incidents with our cops... One bad cop and it rots a whole lot of them. Notice that the guy that murdered George Floyd had 3 or 4 other cops just looking at him suffocating George and they did nothing to stop him from murdering him... One cop allegedly tried to say something along the line that he cant do that, but his voice was not loud enough and strong enough and was completely ignored... Colin Kaepernick's kneeling was DISMISSED and IMMEDIALTELY called an act of disrespecting the flag...  WTF???!!! And this is why we are here today, in the middle of a pandemic, with yet another murdered human (black or not) at the hands of a cop. A cop is NOT judge, jury and executioner.  A cop does NOT render justice to the would be criminal. A cop just brings the would be criminal to justice... Outside of the cop defending his life trying to bring a would be criminal to justice...I think we could all agree that George Floyd was NOT a threat to that cop's life...  A for a lousy counterfeit 20 dollar bill, George Floyd lost his life for it. Again, the streets can be a jungle sometimes and cops have that right to NOT to die protecting us all from the thugs of the mean streets...but...   There is a problem in the US.    And if somebody tells me that white folk die just as much as black folk at the hands of the police just to dismiss the racial discrimiantion black folk face....Ill just repeat what I said above: A cop is NOT judge, jury and executioner.  A cop does NOT render justice to the would be criminal. A cop just brings the would be criminal to justice... And if white folk die just as many black folk die at the hands of the police, then the problem that the US faces is actually WORSE than it is...and we shouldnt dismiss it casually just because we want to supress the black folk. Look at the NFL's response now with Colin Kaepernick's kneeling... How the phoque did THAT take a 180 degree turn? Yeah...because THERE IS a racial problem in the US... And if the Black folk want to protest for their voices to be heard...I think we should let them protest!!!]   That is a two-way thing. We dont let suppressed people voice their opinion, then they WILL revolt with violence.   July 4rth 1776 is an example.   (no taxation without representation...) If we let looters and shyte disturbers run free, violence is almost always the end result... And let us not forget If people in power forget this,  the people will fight back...and then that spells the end for the country...
