The Civic, however, scored too low to rank on the Recommended list. Dropped 17 points from the previous generation car, the new model gets just 61 points, dropping from “Very Good” to “Mediocre”.

Honda has been half-stepping through product development for years. Their vehicles have also be riding on their reputation and most new products are design disasters. If it weren't for Honda, Government Motors would be the industry worst in design results.
