My "Hat's off" to Mazda for their excellent tech achievement.
The "burr in my saddle" is- while this will undoubtably be GREAT for purchasers of brand new Mazdas, it follows (and likely accelerates!) the societal trend of "WOO HOO"! for the FIRST purchasers of a vehicle, SUBSEQUENT purchasers of said vehicle will likely face repair bills (when stuff goes wrong, as stuff ages, as stuff does) that are multiple times what the vehicle is worth.
Manufacturers LOVE LOVE LOVE those who buy their new products, and HATE HATE HATE second, third, (or like me) fourth owners.
I know I'm "swimming against the tide", but I just had to "vent".
