I agree PimTac. Our 2014 Mazda 3 GT had a fantastic AT. Sport mode was great and so was the paddle shifters. Loved that car.

As you have been advised , I see no problem with turning OD off .

Last vehicle Dad had with OD was a small V-8 57 Ford w/ 3 on the tree . We had a small travel / vacation / fishing trailer . I remember he locked it out of OD when towing it , cotton trailers , grain trailers .

The car normally got over 20 MPG on the road , in OD .

I leave my automatic (4cyl Tacoma) in OD most of the time, the owner's manual says this is the default position. The compression braking is surprisingly effective even in overdrive gear. But if I anticipate going 40mph or slower for awhile, or I'm on a stretch of road with crappy timed traffic lights, I will lock out OD so it never goes above 3rd. In my local area, some roads are speed limit 35 and some are 50 so it's hit or miss.

Unless I am going atleast 50 for a length of time, I turn off the OD. The constant in and out of OD can't be good for the tranny.
