I’m in Australia and have the top spec which comes with C.D . So far I have done 11,000 klms and no issues , the CD works perfectly and no vibration at any speed. I know they had problems in 2018 & 19 but think they must have sorted it out. I was hesitant after everything I read about it but seriously I’ve had no issues. I would prefer it didn’t have it and I asked John Cadogen from auto expert in Australia about weather it would have any effect on life of motor, he assured me it wouldn’t and not to be concerned about it. From what I’ve read the 2021 models in America won’t have CD on any models ? We will still have on the 2.5 litre engines in Australia.The 2.5 engine shuts down 2 cylinders during cruising...
I love all my previous Mazdas..
But this "FEATURE" will stop me from buying this car. I've bought 5 brand new Mazdas since 2012, and loved this brand for it's excellent engine drivability.
2013 Mazda 6S
2) 2017 CX3 GT
2019 CX5 GT Reserve
I don't care how they sugar coat it. I'm not buying it. Unless I can disable it without going to the aftermarket ?
Customers should have the option to disable this garbage.
