2014 Mazda 3 S Touring 4-door or 2014 Honda Civic EX-L with Navigation?
I am in the market for a new vehicle, and I have narrowed it down to a 2014 Mazda 3 s Touring (total M.S.R.P. $25,390), or a 2014 Honda Civic EX-L with Navigation ( total M.S.R.P. $25,030). I am looking for a vehicle which will be an excellent commuter car, but also enjoyable outside of the daily grind. Looking for reliability, livability (including typical service experience), cost to own (including very rough insurance estimates) and your personal opinion. I would also likely have to drive the vehicle cross country at least once. I know the '14 Mazda has been dinged for wind noise and off the bat, this concerns me. Keep in mind that both cars have been reworked to various levels for the '14 model year. Thank you all so much in advance!
