    Interesting but that's just a 3rd party write-up referring to how CD works in general, not specific to Mazda. Has Mazda put anything out declaring that all CD ceases above 50 mph?

    I read it somewhere and I couldn’t find the link. And Xeler8ing once posted an image of owner’s manual from his Australian 2018 CX-5 with description of Mazda’s cylinder deactivation.

    Not designed to work at idle or other speeds outside the above

    Yeah, I have heard it from a number of sources as well. It is one reason why I think it won't have any major reliability issues, as in reality, it is a feature that is rarely activated. With that said, if you live in suburbia, you will cruise around between 30-40 MPH a lot and this could impact your MPG there. However, if you look on Fuelly, the MPG for the 2017 and 2018 models are nearly identical.
