Hate to pick holes since it's such a fine car, but the CT has only one shortcoming IMHO: no paddles or manual shift.
Perhaps it'll show in future models but I thought it would be added on this car since it's on even the Civic.
Maybe it was the older, intended target that Honda thought wouldn't want it.
(indeed there's still some 'sport' left in us oldsters...:)

That and an electric hatch would be 2 changes I'd like to see.

I agree with the electric hatch. That would be awesome to click the key-fob and watch it glide open.

Agreed on the paddles and power hatch...another nit nit nit pick would be outside temp on a permanent display without having to tweak the odometer...and traffic on the navi.

Yes on the temp. There is compass on the display (no navi) but no temp. Would be welcome to have a permanent display.

Odd that a feature laden car such as the CT would not have something so basic as a temp. gauge? Almost like it was forgotten...i can hear a room full of designers saying, "I thought you added a temp gauge", "no, I thought you did?" LOL...

For sure they skipped it. The one we have in the odometer is just a carryover from the previous Accord.:rolleyes:
No worries. Even with its shortcomings, it's still a great ride.

Rear visibility is a major issue tho. To make a rear cam standard wouldn't have added that much expense.

Let's hope Honda is listening.

Thanks Ian for the link. I have never seen a Paddle Shifter, or heard anyone talk about them. After having watched the video in your link, I question the need for it in a passenger car. My CT shifts smooth, and fast. I don't need any more control over it. But that is just me. Richard

I agree with all the above and what is funny the Honda Fit has paddles. As far as the Temp gauge I would love for it to be moved to the center display

Maybe Mr. Honda is listening

I'd like the temp display in the center too...
I've got no use for paddles nor manual shift options....Had the manual shift in my last vehicle and never used it....kind of pointless in an automatic IMHO...
Powered hatch w/remote would also be on my wishlist...

I was also surprised that there was no power hatch.

Had a Lexus RX, the hatch was neat but there was an annoying beep-beep like a truck backing up when you opened it.

I agree, I had manual shift option in my mercedes that was replaced with CT but only used it once just to see if it worked. Paddles could be an option but I would not use myself. Would like remote on fob for hatch though.
