Sporty that stands out for the bubbling character of its engines, the Honda Civic Type R is not, however, without anomalies. Here are his most common problems to keep in mind.
Close-up on the most frequent problems of the first version of the Honda Civic Type R.
Honda Civic Type R: a sports car that has become accessible
Before shining in cars, Honda first distinguished itself with its two-wheelers and even in Formula 1. The brand has forged a justified reputation as an outstanding engine manufacturer. As early as 2001, Honda released a Type R version of its latest Civic of the moment.
This seventh generation, with its ungrateful minivan physique, is probably the least beautiful of the line. However, to gain momentum, Honda preferred the 3 door.
To improve its appearance, the brand opted for a specific honeycomb grille, a trunk spoiler, beautiful 17-inch rims and profiled skirts attached to the side sills.
Its 2.0L VTEC 4-cylinder delivers 200 hp. The sports car can go up to 7,900 rpm! An engine that proves to be particularly reliable.
