I purchased my 2012 Civic EX last May, and I love it!
It is a zippy ride, and I get compliments on the appearance of the car all the time.
I had a "08 Civic and loved it too, but the new technology in the new Civics is great.
Drive one....you will like it and the reliability and resale are awesome.
You can't go wrong with a Civic!
