    Default CTR 2019 talk

    Hi everybody,

    Does any of you own the 2019 CTR face-lift? Or has one ordered?

    There will be an important change in Euro zone- the particulate filter. I wonder how will it impact performance and engine/exhaust sound?

    Also it's rumored(no part numbers yet) that transmission issues were addressed. So it would be interesting to see if any improvement in practice.

    There are no transmission issues, it's driver error

    There is no face lift fella just a volume knob and some physical buttons

    Good question around the particulate filter though

    what, really?! the death of touchy non-tactile bits has begun?! praise jesus!
    whoever thought touch interfaces in cars (other than satnav/audio) is a good idea needs a damn good kickin' and deserves a special place in ice hell with glitchy & unresponsive touchscreens wearing eskimo mittens.

    I'd be tempted but Honda being asses about warranty is properly off-putting.

    Never had a problem with warranty. Honda Reading replaced my buzzing centre speaker within a week. They also checked my tracking and alignment free of charge when I complained about inner tyre wear.

    But you haven't tried claiming for a gearbox, you've just been lucky. A quick google yields plenty of results on the FK2 and FK8.

    As Chris says there are plenty of incidents documented on the web. Check US forums for example. Most of them are enthusiasts, having experience with manuals anyway.
    Some here might have had positive experience with Honda dealerships. But when I read about other unsuccessful ones I'm not convinced to take the risk.

    I postponed getting this car waiting for a fix. I have an ok car(Bmw 420d) and I'd have to give it up if I buy the Type R. I do like 4-5k miles per year so can't justify keeping 2 cars. This makes the choice harder, reliability being important.
    On the other hand this particulate filter could take away from its character.
    I'm curious how it looks this 2019 model.

    If the gearbox issue is fixed, you can always buy the new car and remove the particulate filter

    It's all a bunch of emissions cr*p and unlike a diesel it won't smoke like a chimney when the DPF is removed lol.

    I am not disputing that there is a gearbox issue. I have seen it first hand.

    Just been lucky enough to be one of those that got a good one. I've certainly tested it during my 5 track days this year. Maybe the change of gearbox oil to AMSOil helped, who knows.

    I wonder what the percentage of cars that have had gearbox issues is... I bet it's not a lot considering they are close to 8,000 cars produced already. Even if it was 800 cars which I doubt is true it's a 1 in 10 chance of getting a bad gearbox. It's likely fewer than 100 cars out of the 8,000 produced so far which is around 1.25%.
