Sadly not possible on the Civic, although I don't know why people don't just do it before they get out of the car anyway. Madness.

i know i miss that feature from my previous car. The only way to easily have it installed is by buying a new alarm as some of the more expensive alarms have this feature. But i expect if your into your electrics there would be a way of doing this with your current setup.

With that a/c why would you wish to open the windows anyway?

Because on a nice spring day (remember we had one recently ) it's nice to drive along with the windows and sunroof open and feel at one with nature. One out two ain't bad in the Civic.

You can open or close the windows when you turn the engine off before you open the front doors though which is better than nothing. my last car had the shut windows when you lock the doors thing, and my bf would do it everytime he drove, it really used to annoy me (I dont know why but to me it seemed stupid not putting them up before you get out) so Im glad the civic doesnt do it I just hope he remembers (when I finally let him take out my new car on his own)

All those lovely filters in the a/c and you open a flippin' window?

The noise, even at 49 mph!

All them bugs flying into your hair!

And that really shows up when it as white as mine!

Windows, SHUT!

I hate having the windows shut. Makes me feel to enclosed. Love all the windows open and the fresh air coming in. Only on a nice day of course and not when stuck in traffic with all the fumes.

Where I live it's fumes everywhere, so I'll stick to the a/c!

I only ever open the windows to get the ticket at the car park I use, as I suffer from Hey Fever (Doctor said I would "grow out of it" but I'm 40 next Birthday!)

God Bless AC with Pollen Filters!

Besides when sitting in traffic, its nice to show "poor people" the layer of Ice forming on the inside of your car windows!

Nope I cant live without aircon I also suffer with hayfever and asthma so need the windows shut as often as possible. Unfortunately my incredibly selfish bf opens his window just to annoy me as he's never suffered with any allergies! The worst thing of all is getting in the car with someone and they put the windows down when will people understand that with them down the aircon doesnt work as efficiently?

It will be efficient, once it's air-conned Weston-super-Mare!

Can't you super glue that button down?
