Yup. Mazda’s are getting better, Honda’s are getting worse.I came to Mazda from Honda because their quality has gone downhill. I still own 3 Hondas though. Op, did you get Honda Care? If you haven't and were still thinking about it, you can get it online for 1/3 to 1/2 of what your dealer probably offered you.
Very good advice. These are absolutely an essential glovebox item, whether you have zero mechanical knowledge or are an expert.LOL
Folks, invest $20 in a basic OBD II scanner so you can check the codes the CEL is throwing and have some idea of what's wrong BEFORE you take it to a mechanic.

First off thanks for this video. Saved to my favorites for Skyactiv troubleshooting. That said the vid provided a way to identify the issue between 8 possible culprits (4 spark plugs and 4 coil packs.) Cool trick. Oh and that car had original plugs well past 100k miles!! Recommended change is at 70-75k ish miles.Sorry and I forgot to mention a key issue that was diagnosed and found by my mechanic is that I had a engine misfire on 1 of the 4 cylinders.
Basically this is very similar to my problem in this video:
