I agree 100% with the tech aspect. That was actually what drew me to the Civic more than anything else. I went with a coupe because it different, and you do not see one every 2 blocks. But the build quality that goes along with it is horrendous. Nobody can argue that point.I think a lot depends on your priorities. Look, the Corolla will always be more reliable and the Mazda 3 is a great handling car, but tech wise? The new Civic is pretty amazing. Yes, there have been and will have problems. Its a complex vehicle. Get a 2015 Civic if that's what you're looking for.
