I do not like that green ECO light flashing all the time.

I can't see a thing when backing.

Engine power comes on late.

I should not have gotten the black interior. It's way to dark in the car.

Did I mention that damn flashing ECO light?

Is there even a window in the back?

Yes, I will pass you, eventually.

Why's it so dark in here?

There goes that damn green light again....

Hey, wait up!

Is anyone else bothered by these things?

Oh yeah, the dark interior. I'm always afraid that a squirrel is under my seat ready to grab my leg. The ECO light doesn't bother me, drive a Ridgeline so never have had raer visibility, and for my driving the pick up is fine. If I can get you to stop by and check under my seats for squirrels Fred then I'm good to go.

Hmm, the ECO light doesn't bother me and I like dark so interior reminds me of my home in Transylvania 8) . I installed the interior lighting... not as bright as I thought it would be but an improvement.

Here's what gets me:

No place to put my pocket change. My old car has a handy pop-out tray under the left A/C vent. No such luck in the Honda.

Yes, I know my seat belt is off... stop BEEPING.

Does anyone have the backup rear sensors on their CT? Is it more helpful than the backup camera?

HEY, That's my Job......


Where is the Moderator

But I like it.....:D


The ECO light did bother me but not as much
Engine Power is fare and I really do not have a problem with the CT lagging whenyou stomp on it.
Lighting could be better all the way around

Glad to have you back out of retirement, CM, So:

Lmao this is hilarious!

For the interior lighting, I put LEDs everywhere but the vanity mirrors lol... And that's cause they haven't arrived in the mail lol... It's possibly the cheapest interior upgrade you can do but makes a huge difference...

In terms of parking, I dont really have a problem with it cause I had an 08 accord sedan and the CT is about 3 inches longer, all of which seems to be in the front, and the mirror folding down to help is a plus the sedan did not have... I was looking into getting the rear sensors for the females but that's pricey... Until then I'm gonna be the only driver lol

The eco light also doesnt bother me because I got used to it in the accord sedan lol... I don't really look down at me gauges unless I'm flooring it and I wanna see how fast I'm going, and at that point the eco light isn't on lol

I like the darkness it can really set the mood lol... It must be straight up sexy up in there with the interior illumination kit

I can agree with the lag while cruising but there is a way around that but not recommended lol... Shifting it down to D3 allows use of the first 3 gears and you can pass someone real quick and put it back in drive lol

I want to put up an album on the forum

Pedro, Did you put any upgrade in the reverse lights to help with backing up?

Guys, ANY Car with BLACK INTERIOR is going to be darker inside then lighter, come on!

Secondly, IF YOU WANT A RACE CAR, GO BUY AN S2000!!!!! It's a Family Wagon with "Spunk", so in in the event you need to get around a truck, it's there! It's not a 0 - 60 contender and it's also not a friggin SUV.. If you didn't know these things going into it, then you really aren't a car enthusiast whatsoever..

The "ECO" light is there to let you know your at a good pace, otherwise how would you know when you are saving fuel and how to drive the car? The more switches, lights and DARKNESS the better because in my eyes, this is one damn sexy FAMILY CAR!

You need to "DARKEN UP" LOL!!!

Sadly, I like driving our 2004 Accord EX-L v6 sedan better than I do the CT. It's a family car but it just feels more nimble on the road. The CT is a fine car. I just haven't fallen in love with it. In the almost 2 months that we've had the CT, we've only put about 1,000 miles on it. While in the same time frame, we've put about twice that on the Accord sedan. (we have a LONG commute to work) Obviously we are choosing the sedan over the CT.

I'm considering trading the CT in on either another Accord sedan, a Ford Taurus or a Ford Edge. I'm going to cruise the car lots some tomorrow..


And BTW, one of my Associate's degrees is in automechanics. Plus, in my younger years, I worked as a line mechanic at both a Ford and a Buick dealer. I'm no newbie to automobiles. However, I think I should have put more time into my decision to buy the CT. We like the 2004 Accord so much (plus all my bikes have been Hondas) that I was a bit blinded by my respect for Honda as a manufacturer. The CT isn't a bad car. It just doesn't seem to be what we want.

I think having that navi with the back up cam and a way to stop that danged light from flashing would drastically improve my experience with the CT. I never have any pocket change. The six-year old daughter takes care of that. ;)

Yes I did. I put 24- smd reverse lights and they are super bright and also look awesome. You can get them with more LEDs but I wasn't sure how many actually fit. I will try to post some pics tomorrow.
