I think the absence of vectoring lines (2) cannot be justified (a zero cost software flag setting?) and must be an attempt to force Romanian users to purchase the 360 degree camera system. When I viewed the Mazda 3 shortly after its UK release the salesman didn't know the "view" button accessed two rear views.Except 4-8 the others are something I can easily live with.
Overall I like the car more than the old one.
"4" I haven't experienced
"5" I've never used a "Recycled air" setting on any car. In the UK when a car is too hot (left in sun) the air inside is hotter than outside and in winter the interior air is more humid than exterior so recycling may/will increase condensation on the windscreen.
"6" total agreement. Mazda even say "The surface of this part is very delicate (easily scratched)." in their manual for vehicle handlers and shippers.
"7" Not experienced
"8" Again not experienced and I would say my auto box is the equal of and possibly better than VW's DSG 6sp wet clutch box. Having come from a 2l VW diesel I have noted that the X engine does rev higher and I'd have said that 1100 - 1500 rpm operating band was for a turbo diesel being driven in "comfort" mode. It must be an error in the gearbox mapping for your country. Does the issue go away if you switch to sport mode?
"9" totally agree. The UK manual references "Accessory Sockets" but doesn't tell you where they are. I knew there was one in the centre console and just been to open the tailgate expecting to find another one!!!!
I miss the VW IR reflecting windscreen and come winter its heating function will be missed.
