Optical receiver
Dust-proof sheet
WARNING
Always adjust the display brightness and position with the vehicle stopped:
Adjusting the display brightness and position while driving the vehicle is dangerous as doing
so could distract your attention from the road ahead and lead to an accident.
CAUTION
¾ Do not place beverages near the active driving display. If water or other liquids are splashed
on the active driving display, it could cause damage.
¾ Do not place objects above the active driving display or apply stickers to the dust-proof
sheet/optical receiver as they will cause interference.
¾ A sensor is integrated to control the display's luminosity. If the optical receiver is covered,
the display's luminosity will lower making the display difficult to view.
¾ Do not allow intense light to hit the optical receiver. Otherwise, it could cause damage.
NOTE
Wearing polarized sunglasses will reduce the visibility of the active driving display due to
the characteristics of the display.
If the battery has been removed and re-installed or the battery voltage is low, the adjusted
position may deviate.
The display may be difficult to view or temporarily affected by weather conditions such as
rain, snow, light, and temperature.
If the audio system is removed, the active driving display cannot be operated.
The active driving display indicates the following information:

NOTE
The Sport AT has an option that is not included in the traditional automatic transaxle that
gives the driver the option of selecting each gear instead of leaving it to the transaxle to
shift gears. Even if you intend to use the automatic transaxle functions as a traditional
automatic, you should also be aware that you can inadvertently shift into manual shift mode
and an inappropriate gear may be retained as the vehicle speed increases. If you notice the
engine speed going higher or hear the engine racing, confirm you have not accidentally
slipped into manual shift mode (page 4-50).

For each gear position while in the manual mode, the speed limit is set as follows: When the
selector lever is operated within the range of the speed limit, the gear is shifted.

The gear does not shift up while the vehicle speed is lower than the speed limit.

The gear does not shift down while the vehicle speed exceeds the speed limit.
If the vehicle speed exceeds the speed limit and the gear does not shift down, the gear

Kickdown
When the accelerator pedal is depressed fully while driving, the gear shifts down.
However, the gears do not kickdown while the TCS is turned off or the Off-Road Traction

NOTE
The gear also shifts down using kickdown while in the second gear fixed mode.

Recommendations for Shifting
Upshifting
For normal acceleration and cruising, Mazda recommends these shift points:
Gear
Vehicle speed*1
M1 to M2
24 km/h (15 mph)
M2 to M3
40 km/h (25 mph)
M3 to M4
65 km/h (40 mph)
M4 to M5
73 km/h (45 mph)
M5 to M6
81 km/h (50 mph)
*1
Always observe local speed limit regulations.
Downshifting
When you must slow down in heavy traffic or on a steep upgrade, downshift before the
engine starts to overwork. This gives better acceleration when you need more speed.
On a steep downgrade, downshifting helps maintain safe speed and prolongs brake life.

Passing
For extra power when passing another
vehicle or climbing steep grades, depress
the accelerator fully. The transaxle will
shift to a lower gear, depending on vehicle
speed.
NOTE
The accelerator pedal may initially feel
heavy as it is being depressed, then feel
lighter as it is depressed further. This
change in pedal force aids the engine
control system in determining how much
the accelerator pedal has been
depressed for performing kickdown, and

kickdown should be performed.

CAUTION
¾ Do not shade the light sensor by adhering a sticker or a label on the windshield. Otherwise
the light sensor will not operate correctly.
¾ The light sensor also works as a rain sensor for the auto-wiper control. Keep hands and
scrapers clear of the windshield when the wiper lever is in the AUTO position and the
ignition is switched ON as fingers could be pinched or the wipers and wiper blades could be
damaged when the wipers activate automatically. If you are going to clean the windshield,
be sure the wipers are turned off completely when it is particularly tempting to leave the
engine running. This is particularly important when clearing ice and snow.
NOTE
The headlights and other exterior lights may not turn off immediately even if the
surrounding area becomes well-lit because the light sensor determines that it is night time
if the surrounding area is continuously dark for several minutes such as inside long
tunnels, traffic jams inside tunnels, or in indoor parking lots.
In this case, the lights turn off if the light switch is turned to the OFF position.
If the headlight switch and the windshield wiper switch are in AUTO, and the wipers are
operated at low or high speed by the auto wiper control for several seconds, bad weather
conditions are determined and the headlights may be turned on.
The sensitivity of the auto-light control may be changed.
