    WOW. Great looking car! Why don't Honda bring it here?

    Probably because it has a large petrol engine and will be hammered by car taxes and low MPG.

    I would, but don't want a left hand drive car that is also not familiar to local garages.

    My error. I should have typed 'import one from Japan'. They drive on the correct side of the road. :Wink:

    Trouble is, the eejits in Swindon think we all want SUVs, Civics or smaller.

    My Gen8 Accord is coming up for replacement, but Honda UK don't sell anything here that will replace it - dealers keep trying to sell me a Civic which is not the same thing, or a CR-V which is also not the same type of vehicle.

    My reply to date has been "If someone with a BMW 3, Audi A4, Mondeo, Mercedes C, Peugeot 40x, Lexus, SAAB, Volvo, VW Passat, Jaguar X, Vauxhall Insignia, etc. wanted to change - would you offer them a Civic?

    The answer has always been "er, no".

    Then, if you ask "And what if they wanted a Hybrid?" , you get the answer "Next year there will be one."

    Inspires confidence doesn't it?

    I fear the replacement may well be an IS300h at the moment, but Honda UK have 12 months or so so change my mind…
