Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

Love this car for so many reasons. The engine is an absolute gem with plenty of power and reasonable economy. There is also the bonus of there not being anything complicated like turbos or DPF filters to worry about which I think makes it a better long term purchase. The space inside the cabin is amazing. Our last car was a yeti and the kids have got more space in the back of the civic plus the boot is just as big. I also love the magic rear seats as they add so much flexibility when you've got something awkward to carry. An added bonus is that being able to lift the seat bases' makes it easier to clean up after the kids have dropped any sweets or crisps after a long journey. The only niggle I really have is that the ride can be a little firm at times which, while fun on a good road, can get a little crashy on poor surfaces so I'd say get a good long test drive to make sure you're ok with it. Overall though I'd say the combination of space, reliability, practicality and performance is hard to match. Oh and it still looks amazing too.

How reliable do you find the car?

Battery failed but probably because it was a low mileage car.

Does the car do everything you expected it to do?

Can't get over the combination of economy and performance you get with this car. It managed 45mpg on a long motorway run with the car fully laden and yet when you want to have some fun it's surprisingly quick.
