I recently got rid of a 2004 Mazda 3 sport and I like the Civic much better. I am very impressed with the smooth ride for a car less than $20,000. The cabin is quiet radio is create, manual shifter is very smooth. I drive mostly highway and have been getting around 34 mpg.
Trunk pop on key, 5 speed shifter, fuel economy, smooth ride, comfortable seats, good handling.
For some reason when I used winshield cleaning fluid the wipers don't come on automatically.
