@nobouncecap

I agree with your complaints. I'm not a Mazda fanboy, I bought the car because I like it...but like everything else in this world, nothing is perfect.

All of these are constructive criticisms..same as the unanimous owner feedback from the "lamentable" and archaic NB1 Infotainment Sys all our GJ cars has.

Without feedback (positive, as well as negative) from owners, how would auto engineers improve upon their work...for future models.

Why do people not like the CVT?

I mean it seems to me the only complaint seems to be the CVT instead of complaints like:

Non-illuminated windows
Push twice to roll down windows
Head-unit Problems
Back-up sensor problems.
Shifter Problems
Car doesn't make me coffee problems
Car doesn't massage my back problems...
ETC ETC...

1 vs 6 problems.

Wait, what? There is no CVT on the Mazda 6. I don't hear anyone complaining about a CVT.

The point that I'm expressing is that it's silly to me that people own a $23k+ machine and feel a need to express trivial complaints about it.

Trust me, you're FAR from the only person on this site to complain about things on the 3rd gen that can be considered "trivial," and this is aimed at everyone as a whole, not just you.

I say "first world problems" because it amazes me that there's such a large amount of people who join this forum and complain about things in these cars that otherwise mean nothing of it's worth.

These cars are built to enjoy driving, and that's what they allow us to do - they aren't here to pamper us and rub our shoulders while we sit in them, and I feel that far too many people on here expect that out of them.

Just my thoughts

No, it was in reference to people buying the Mazda over the Honda Accord. For most people in here it seems the last two cars it comes down to are the Accord or the 6 and everybody picks the 6 over the Accord due to it not having a CVT.

I compared the Accord to the 6 and, even though I liked the sub-7 second 0-60 run, the Accord was not as good of a drive, it was decontented relative to the 6 at the same price point, and that dash is hideous!

I believe, I could be wrong, that the CVT is in the V6 and has trouble shifting and seems to provide a lack luster performance. Their 4 banger runs with a different gear box but I could be wrong about it. With me it came down to the Accord and the 6 because I wanted a manual and the Honda's was a tad bit smoother but didn't like that fact everyone owned a Honda. The other aspect was that in the end the accord was going to be more expensive and so I sided with the 6.

I did go on a rant and I do apologize for it. To me though taking my car back to the shop 4 times for items such as my shifter not sliding into the gear box are not trivial things, even though it was not an issue I complained about first in this post. the little things just kinda add frustration with a car that is 20k+, and having tech that just doesn't compare with cars in the same league as the 6. I understand what you are saying about this car was meant to be driven, even though all cars are meant to be driven, and experience the zoom zoom feel on the road.

Hey we all get frustrated sometimes, we get frustrated with our wives (if some of you guys have one), our cars, our jobs etc.

Just know that for your frustration about the little things in this car for 20k+...

Someone is complaining about their...

15K car not having power windows & leather
30K car not having Lane Departure warning and a sunroof
60K car not having navigation and HID Headlights/LED taillights
90K car being only in automatic and no back-up camera.

It's all good.
