Some owners of 2012-2014 Mazda3, 2013-2015 CX-5 and 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles (all equipped with SKYACTIV-G) may complain about one of the following symptoms when the vehicle is stopped and the transmission in the D range:

- An intermittent high engine idle speed

- An intermittent engagement shock
