'05 Grand Touring AT, 102,000 mi. Factory recall engine replacement @47,000 & PCM reflashes ,added a Mazdaspeed Cold Air Intake & Cat Back which seemed to make the 4 spd shift more positively as well as noticeable power improvement. Routine periodic PM . A surprisingly inexpensive & practical sports car that doubles as a great long distance touring car. Use the Cruise Control @ 70-75 mphl on the interstate and see 22-24 mpg ( the latter on long flat stretches out west ). Not economy car mileage, but hell, it's not an economy car!

Back from the dead, I just pulled my 2005 a/t motor at 111,138 miles. I'd say the last 10k or so were on life support, as it rarely started without 4 or 5 de-flood attempts or a few CC's of oil in the LIM.

Not terrible.

181,000 miles 3 engines. 3rd engine currently has 38xxx on her and seems to be running fantastic. I need to get on board with premixing.

FL 04 Auto - high milage

I have an 04 automatic; the first engine went at 90K and was replaced under Mazda's warranty. The new engine is at 131K and runs beautifully and the original transmission still shifts relatively smoothly (knock on wood) I'm getting just over 18 miles per gallon and I run this engine hard!

Party on,

I purchased my 04/AT a year ago. Currently at 75400 miles. Not sure if the engine ever been replaced. What is the best way to verify if the motor ever been replaced?

Inquire at your local dealer or maybe message RIWWP your vin and he may be able to tell you.

^ All engine replacement warranties have to go through Mazda USA HQ (I assume you are in the US). To find out any warranty related work, or recalls, you can contact them with your VIN -> HERE

working on a friend's 04 RX8 automatic. She has 96702 on hers. I have had to replace all sorts of stuff on it since her husband neglected it and it hasn't run for almost 4 years. I did a recall check at the dealership and found it had one engine replacement back in 2004, but there was still an engine lack of power recall that was in "to be determined" status. starts hard and getting a P0610 code, but runs good when it starts. more info on the way.
