Honda revealed its refreshed Civic at the L.A. Auto Show this week.
The automaker made some very significant changes to the car, just a year after the new version was launched.
Consumer Reports and many auto reviewers slammed the car's styling and interior.
Despite that, customers turned a blind eye to the criticism, making the Civic the best-selling compact car in the U.S. this year.
The always irreverant website Autoblopnik has a nice, Onion-style entry about the car and the controversy.
