Purchased in May, already 4000 miles (two long road trips), couldn't be happier. Yes, there are faster, flashier cars out there, but for overall practicality you just can't beat the Civic. We're actually looking at getting another. It's true, close to 40 mpg on the highway, about 30 or so in town. Granted, it doesn't have the pep that some may desire, but heck, it's a 4-cylinder! The power, however, is plenty sufficient for merging onto the freeway, driving uphill, etc. And did I mention the gas mileage!? The EX of course has the sunroof as well as stereo controls on the steering wheel. The mp3 jack is a great feature as well. Honda is just doing it right. We love it.
Gas mileage, practicality, good looks, good stereo system.
There is quite a bit of road noise at high speeds, but I'm grasping here.
