Mazda gives out rebuilt engines when they replace your old ones..they're Not New..just old engines from past customers.your warranty only ensures you pay 750.00 for the labor,fluids ,to put a half ass engines back in..the mechanics at Brandon fl,mazda are crooked,and up to no good..Q.A was there because people have reported too much..mazda needs to tighten up,or I'm going to spread the word,and ruin them..promise... ;-)

Burns as much as one litre per week...dealership says it's normal for the type of engine...interesting how it didn't do that when I bought it...they refuse to cover it under warranty, so the $1,500 is the estimate I was given...
