You thought there was hope in the world. You thought, no matter how dim and ominous things looked, you could remember 2017 as the year the pure, six-speed manual of a Honda Civic Type R came to the U.S.—to be controlled only by a human who loves three pedals.

The new Honda Civic Type R is a masterpiece of track-ready hot-hatch insanity, but when it comes to simple burnouts, it’s not the best. Even with 2016 Indianapolis 500 winner and ex-Formula One driver Alexander Rossi behind the wheel, the new Civic Type R just didn’t want to smoke the meats.
Look at this sad, lonely 2017 Honda Civic Type R, in what looks to be a nice neighborhood in suburban South Carolina. But not everything here is nice.

Earlier this week, we heard about an unfortunate accident where somebody crashed into a guy’s brand new 2017 Honda Civic Type R while he was on his way home from the dealership.

One-hundred and fifty-one miles. That was all Greg Ellingson got with his brand new 2017 Honda Civic Type R. He flew from Philadelphia to Boston to pick up the car, and not much later on Sunday, he was sulking through a five-hour ride home in a tow truck.

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is full of funky styling and harsh angles, to the real annoyance of lots of folks out there.
