So is it basically the same car with Lane Watch added and new styling?

Or will the ride/comfort be affected too?

I ask because if it is the 2012 models may become real bargains in the next month or two.

No updates to the suspension....too bad. :rolleyes:

I'm not overly crazy abt some of the interior/exterior styling updates either -- and really, it's just a Mid Model Update.

Paddle shifters and 6spd tranny are a BONUS, and of course the electronics pkg!

however -- I don't think I'm going to be running to swap my lease early like I was THINKING i'd want to. :eek:

Unless CT sales pick up, i don't see it being continued much beyond a 5 year production cycle. :(
Bummer.
i DO love my '12 tho!

Like the 6 speed and some of the tech stuff, not so much on the front end styling.

Also, I thought I read that this one has something like 6.2" ground clearance... do we not have 8 inches (on the 4WD anyhow).

Love mine, keeping it till the wheels fall off.

Grille looks better, as do the headlight and taillights. But now the car has a black eye liner like features below the headlights...why Honda, WWHHHYY?

Also the V6 engine can now only run in 3 and 6 cyclinder mode. The 4 cylinder mode of the VCM appears to have been omitted.

Too much ECO "hunting" and surging would be my guess on the disappearance of the 4cyl mode.
I'm aware of a recall that is seen on the VCM v-6's, where the plugs will foul and in some cases blow the IGNition Coils - it is thought to be caused by a VCM timing/tuning issue.
Urgh. Technology has it's price!
