Great car, but one thing concerns me..

2014 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Everything said here is true - this is an amazing car particularly for the money.
But the low engine speed throttle response concerns me.
After driving for 6 months and 5,000 miles I've consistently, but randomly experienced a problem that does not seem to be fixable.
About every fourth time I try to accelerate with the engine running 1000-1500 rpm, like making a turn from a light, the engine does not respond at all when I push on the accelerator.
It also seems like it wants to stall.
But after 2-4 seconds the car finally realizes that I want to accelerate and it springs forward.
Above 2000 rpm the engine revs just fine.
Like turbo lag the dealer service said. Great car, but for this.

Best Features

Style, comfort, economy (26-30 mph for mixed driving), fun to drive, backup camera and warning system

Worst Features

Rear window wiper needed, fix the throttle response - my 2008 Mazda 5 revs so much better, but doesn't have the economy
