I was in an 04 Ford Escape. I do miss the motor already in that truck. Not to say the 2.0 is a bad motor, just that the V6 in the escape was cosworth design, it would pull and spin up fairly easily ;)

as for the civic, what do I think... well difficult because I only drove it into work this morning.

I'm getting used to the fly-by-wire and electric steering. It's different and light, my escause was hydraulic steering and cable throttle.

Really liking android auto. Got my phone paired immediately, it's nice to not have to carry around CD's anymore ;)

Fan of the driving position, haven't sat this low in a car since my '86 GT WAYYY back. I like it!!

You mention you like the seats? Are you referring to comfort or looks? I test drove a Touring earlier this week. When I got back in my '05 Acura TL, I noticed pretty quickly the TL driver seat was better. The Civic Touring driver seat does not have a power lumbar, which I find a big negative for a car costing upwards of $30K!

a bit of both, its nice having small bolsters, in my escape they were fairly flat. It was an observation vs what I was in before. Everyones perspective will be difference based on their past experiences ;)

Congrats on finally taking delivery of one.

Are you planning to get paint protection done while the paint is still in good condition?
