I love my Civic. It has had absolutely no problems and has run flawlessly. Love the style and the amenities that come in the EX model, like the moonroof and the A/C buttons. It has a powerful A/C that gets really cold and a super powerful heater. Tons of trunk room and is definitely built for 2, not 4 people. You can do it, but I wouldn't advise it.
The moonroof, the interior and design. A/C buttons and power everything. Fog lights are great, but buy them aftermarket and from the dealer.
More power, you have to be gentle with it, but it gets there... eventually. Also, not much room in the interior, do not buy this for space. Designed for 2 people, not 4... it's too tight. Better system for the music. MUCH BETTER TIRES. Those tires are awful!! Horrible in the rain. I sold them and replaced.
