    No surprise with the crappy tires which are even crappier than the i tires. Please put a decent set of UHP all seasons on this thing or some HP summer tires. Ya'll are in LA. - Also, you didn't disable DSC?

    This is a long term issue. One of the places Mazda seems to save a few $$ is in the tire dept. I own a Mazda 5 (2008) and the Toyos it came shod with had so little traction that there was serious wheel spin any time you tried to make a left or right turn from a standing stop and were not absolutely careful to feather the accelerator. Switched to a bit better set (Bridgestone Turanzas). The above noted problem disappeared and overall performance improved across the board.
