I drive a 2018 Mazda 6 Touring, I've also felt this exact feeling at the same exact speed. I thought it was me going insane.

Has anyone taken to the dealership yet?
Sadly I have no updates. I was hopeful, but no one has really offered any insight in the land of Mazda.

My service manager got hardly any feed back from Mazda. Only way this is getting found is it we find the way to replicate it in demand. I have not had another occurrence since posting this. I've been trying to purposely get it to do it, no luck.

Bummer

Just an update. Took my car in for 10,000 mile oil change, mentioned to service advisor about the problem since it was only 3hr before they close, the service advisor told me to go for a test drive with him to see if there really was a problem since the they wouldnt have enough time to test drive with the oil change service. After the test drive with him, service advisor confirmed there were those clunky noises that coming from transmission and he told me to left the car till the next day. Got a text the next morning from the advisor saying that a master technician scanned for code as well as test drove a few time and confirmed that the sound is normal operation of the vehicle. I came to pick up my car and ask to test drive with that same technician. Miraculously the sound was gone, no more clunky or bucking at all, just a very slight clunk tho but not all the time like it used to. Been a week now and really the problem is gone only a slight clunk once in a while. So I'm not sure if scanning for code or changing oil or maybe because the car is 10,000 miles now somehow fixed the problem.

Hi there. I wanted to follow-up and see if this still fixed your issue, or if the issue has come back. Thanks.

Anyone find out if there has been any PCM or TCM updates for the 2018 yet? I've had mine since last April and definitely notice that same bucking/jerking in heavy sub 20mph stop and go freeway jams as well as parking lot maneuvering (as well as some other possible transmission quirks). :/
