The criticism fell on receptive ears. John Mendel, head of American Honda, acknowledged the missteps in the Civic’s quality late last year. Honda says the Civic now has “interior and exterior refinements” for 2013.

What exactly are they? The automaker remains mum.

“This is the only info we are going to release,” company spokesman Chuck Schifsky said in an email. “Our plan is to hold a media briefing regarding the changes to the Civic for the ’13 model year close to the on-sale date late this fall.”

The Civic’s downfalls have done little to stop sales, which are up 23% through May with slight dealer incentives. Naturally, we’ll detail what’s changed once Honda releases more info.
