  1. 1.  The Worlds Top Honda Dealer Defends the 2012 CivicAgainst Review in The New York Timeshttp://tier10lab.com/2011/09/27/the-worlds-top-honda-dealer-defends-the-2012-civic-against-review-in-the-new-york-times/September 27, 2011By Luisana SuegartBrian Benstock of Paragon Honda says The New York Times is wrong about the 2012 Honda Civic.Benstock says its reliability, pricing, and fuel economy make the 2012 Civic the perfect car for the NewYork driver. In a “Behind the Wheel” review published September 23rd, columnist John Pearley Huffmanwrote:“The car is, for the most part, a mild revamping of the eighth-generation coupes and sedans that went onsale for the 2006 model year. Most of the mechanical elements carry over in a new shell that’s even lessvisually interesting than before.”  
  2. 2. But Benstock is a fan of the all-new 2012 Honda Civic, a vehicle that he says has been a challenge tokeep in stock due to the overwhelming demand. Its launch early in the summer delivered an unparalleledlevel of variety, with standard coupe and sedan models, two sporty Si versions, one hybrid, one natural-gas alternative-fuel variant and an all-new model, the Civic HF, which delivers a targeted EPA-estimatedfuel-economy rating of 41 mpg on the highway. Benstock assures that the 2012 Honda Civic hasremained a standout in the compact segment, with all the value, reliability, sporty performance andefficiency drivers come to expect from the iconic vehicle.“Honda is a great brand that has had many great products. It is interesting to me that Huffman mentionsthe Prelude and S2000 as cars that were influential,” says Benstock, Vice President and GeneralManager of Paragon Honda. “These cars are great, but do not hold a candle to the Civic and its trackrecord, nor did they have nearly the branding for Honda as the Civic did.”Benstock continues, “Honda will stick to what they know. The market expects home-runs every time.When Honda hits a triple, publications are quick to criticize. The value, reliability and affordability of theproduct will prevail as it always has. Paragon Honda offers the 2012 Civic for $6 per day while no othercar in today’s economy can boast the features and dependability at this price point and have the heritageof the 9th generation Civic.”Earlier this year, Consumer Reports called the 2012 Civic LX “less agile” and having a “lower interiorquality” than the prior model, while also saying it “suffers from a choppy ride, long stopping distances, andpronounced road noise.” In response, Benstock told Auto Remarketing that he disagrees with ConsumerReports’ analysis of the 9th Generation Civic, assuring the vehicle has been very well-received by theconsumer.
