You said it well. It's kind of counterproductive, they release the '6 and brag about the market it's geared to, and then they change it!!Originally posted by Jerome81
I really don't know what to say except that I'm EXTREMELY disappointed. I had read awhile back in an interview that the Mazda6 was going to be a world car, and that there would be no differences in suspension tuning from country to country.
Great job Mazda. You really just pushed me back from considering this to be the revelation I was waiting for. Cushy and a good ride is all that garbage we can get from EVERY OTHER SINGLE COMPETITOR, and I think every single one of us here is extremely disappointed to see this happen. When you talk of being the benchmark for handling, don't procede to detune the suspension "Because that's what Americans like". We don't. At least not those of us who would consider buying the 6.
Man, when I read about what the 6 was supposed to be, and how it arrived in Japan and Europe, I was so excited. Now, to find out that there will not be Navigation, DSC, no ACC on I4 models, and then add on the detuned suspension I'm pretty turned off.
Mazda, you pussed out. You quite possibly lost a sale because of it. And I can't be the only one....[/b]
Actually I heared that the engine for the TSX will be tuned up to make more power in North America. And as for DI... the Audi RS6 is headed over here and it has Direct Injection. So that's cool.Originally posted by hieppo
.. I know they will have a detuned engine since that always happen. But then again that is warranted since our fuel over here is so dirty and low performance...
...That is why we will never see the DI engine since our fuel is so bad.[/b]
