I don't think it is correct.

I'd say it was totally traditional, wasn't it?

For example you would say

Its hot today, isn't it?      (Not "its hot today, is it")

What would make you use...

I'd say it was totally traditional, would you?

Over

I would say it was totally traditional, would you?

Over

I would say, it was totally traditional, wouldn't you?

I believe you use, "I'd" in non formal writing, if you are being more formal then use the longer version "I would.

I hope Mandarin is not as difficult to learn as English :-)

Good luck every body.
