The 6spd trans in the Mazda lineup is fantastic IMO. I haven't noticed what Car and Driver and Motortrend are referring to. I love the AT in this car. Sport Mode works well as does the manual mode.

"Besides occasional fumbles at lower speeds, it's totally innocuous."

"it exhibits an occasional stumble when shifting"

The only thing I can maybe think they are referring to is 1st to 2nd it drops off quickly when you accelerate slowly. Giving it more gas you avoid that. Shifting is very precise with this AT.

We are enjoying the 6 speed auto in ours but I agree with TunaFresh on the low speed shift which may be what C&D is referring to. I had nine and a half years of fun in my 2006 Miata with the 6 speed auto and while I have a manual in my 2017 RF, I would not hesitate to go back to the auto in it.
