I love the Civic. Best car I've owned so far with the exceptional gas mileage. Wish Honda could have put a bigger engine or came out with a V6 model for the EX and with a little more standard features. All in all a very great car that will probably last forever.
Loud stereo system, handling and braking, and the body style.
Bigger engine on EX not just SI or came out with a SI coupe, foglights as standard equipment, and maybe make the engine DOHC instead of SOHC for more power.
