I've been reading some Honda Civic forums from other countries and the latest rumor is that there will be no more replacement for the Honda Civic FD (at least in Japan).
Even some are speculating that Honda is going to stop production of the Civic.
Well the sad news is indeed true. Kindly read this article: http://www.thestar.com/business/auto/article/891661--honda-stops-selling-civic-in-japan
Although for some other countries they have already received a replacement for the FD. Come the 9th Gen Civic and ours would or could look like this: http://bharathautos.com/spied-2012-honda-civic-asean-model.html
Reviews of the car from the U.S. is that the car is better than all the Civics from the past. Better in terms of fuel economy and comfort but lacks the passion and soul of its predecessors.
They even compared the Civic to the Corolla, since both are now boring to drive.
