sorry about the bad writing, I was on my cell phone earliar and t9 messed it all up. It makes a clunking / popping sound as you push it into gear. Sitting at stop lights put clutch in to the floor and move shifter to 1st its makes it. its hard enough to feel it through the car. It also makes it randomly when shifting gears.
Driving home from work i was able to duplicate it while shifting driving 10 mph or so shift from 1st to 2nd and back to 1st and it will do it in both of those gears. This vehicle was local owned so i am going to the mazda dealer tommorow to get all the service records from them. I bought it from a non Mazda dealer, and they ovbiously have no clue about rotaries, which the service manager told me on the phone.
The issue is I have had it for less than a week and have had this issue pop up, plus it smells of burnt oil all the time while idleing. I love this car to death and it is fun, i also anticipated it costing more to maintain, but not 4 days after purchase.
