I have had this car 3 days and noticing a hesitation when start up and reverse out of garage like a spurt and higher rev? Anyone else experiencing it and the auto emergency break is a pain. I know I can dismantle it to do it manually but got to figure it out along with the sport mode switch?

Not experiencing any issues. With regards to the park brake, with brake applied push down on the switch. Sport mode is off untill you turn it on

Yes I know but there is a way to do it manually and not have it automatically engaged which I prefer.

Maybe I am misunderstanding because it only engages automatically when you shut off the vehicle

Yes it does but there is a way to bypass this so if on flat surface or parked you don’t have to engage it. You can manually engage it by pulling the switch up. I really never used the em brake on my 3 but maybe 4 times in 5 years only on my old Mazda 3 manual in first gear or reverse on a uphill.

The electronic parking break engages every time you turn the car off. It’s a safety feature. Why wouldn’t you want this?

I guess if you’re insistent you can cancel it. These are the instructions how. You’d have to do it every time though.

Actually I just talked to my service guy about the hesitation and the parking brake. Actually he gets it....I actually really never needed my parking brake on in my 3 unless on a hill. I will just deal and the AT is all computed and it seems it takes a second or two to adjust the shift of park to reverse but it is noticeable and if continues let them know. I know this tech is all new but dude I am not the only one talking of the hesitation.

The parking brake is called the parking brake for a reason: you should use it when you park your car. Many people think you only need to use your parking brake (also called the emergency brake) when parking on a hill or if your car has a manual transmission. This is incorrect; whether your car is a manual or automatic, the terrain is hilly or flat, you should use your parking brake every time you park.
I will let you google the answer on why you should use it.

You should not require a parking brake when you car is in Park on any level or semi level ground. That's ridiculous. In 40 years of driving I have never used or needed it. If they can design self driving cars surely they can design one that stays parked when in Park.

And then there's the other side of that coin. The parking brake is called the parking brake for a reason. You should only ever use it, IF you choose to use it, when you are parked. On flat ground there is no need or reason to use a parking brake on a good working vehicle. On hilly terrain it becomes a matter of decision of the user. Anyone who wants and chooses to use it by all means should. It should be their choice. Not a choice forced on them.

The current setup of mandatory APB for everyone at all times, including those who do not want it, would be like having an inclinometer in the car that prohibits the parking brake from setting on less than a 15 degree incline. Sorry dctokyo, you can't use your parking brake on the 13 degree hill. That's not steep enough. Mazda says so. Too bad if you want to. Not allowed. Now explain why you should be allowed to use it whenever you want in spite of what Mazda thinks and we should be forced to use it against our will because of what Mazda thinks.

The first method does not work on USA cars. I did not try the second. And when I asked at the dealer who sold me the car the service advisor says it can not be disabled. Mazda is apparently a dealer on the left who knows better than mere customers and won't allow us to make our own choices.
