2017 Mazda 6 Will Pay The Same Price As Ford

By  | 

Ford definitely learns their lesson when it comes to offering their customers an infotainment system that is not up to standard but it looks like Mazda did not learn from their mistake as they might be heading down the same path right now.

Before the Sync 3 infotainment system, Ford offered their customers the MyFord Touch system and their customers were not happy with it. A lot of customers reported that the system was complicated and very frustrating to use. In fact, a lot of people did actually avoid getting Ford models because they couldn’t stand the MyFord Touch. Ford have since ditched the MyFord Touch for the new Sync 3 and their customers couldn’t be happier.

While the Mazda infotainment was never as bad as the MyFord Touch, they seem to be ignoring the fact that their customers actually wants to have the Android Auto and Apple Carplay support in their Mazda.

Mazda does not seem to have any plans to start offering those two support anytime soon we think this is going to hurt them in a long run.

    So what? What is the big deal about Android Auto and Apple Carplay? If I’m not wrong, Mazda has their own solution. They are not deal breakers. Get real. I don’t buy a car that looks ugly and drives like a brick wall just because it has Android Auto or Apple Carplay.

    Actually… As much as I love the Mazda CX9… And i love it a lot. The one BIG drawback is that it lacks Android auto. Yes, you dont buy a car for its its infotainment system…however, were in the connected age and the whole functionality of most applications of the infotainment system become obsolete just as quickly as when you get the car. Think of getting directions to a place after you received a watsapp location… would you type down the coordinates of the place or just give up on your infotainment and just use your phone? How about when you are playing music? I guess you can stream… but in most cases, the user interface and functionalities are lost.

    So its not a deal breaker… but definately shows poor judgement on Mazda’s end! I’m buying the CX9 but I sure hope they upgrade their system and I’d be pissed if I have to pay for an upgrade few months in to buying the car!
