Sorry to hear about your Mazda 6 engine. Mazda will do nothing to help you. $5400 is about what I was quoted too. I replaced mine with a used engine for $1200 + $1000 labor. I had t do it twice so far. Car is nice engine is junk and Mazda knows is and is doing nothing until people sue them. I'm a Quality Assurance Manager and I know about quality systems and Mazda is hiding from this one. Shame shame shame on Mazda. avoid Mazda at all costs. They suck!

I don't know if you guys heard about this but spiders are pulling an all-out assault on our car engines. After analyzing discussions that I have had with others, we can only conclude that Honda has bio-engineered a new sub-species of spider with the capability to not only locate, but to also destroy the engine by laying their acid-laden webs in the evaportative canister line. Now is the time to act.
One testable theory to explore how we can potentially extricate these spiders was posited by "William" (name omitted for confidentiality purposes). He believes that a simple fix to the problem at hand would be to release birds into the engines to decimate the spider population. The next obvious question then is what are the exact dimensions of the engine so that we can gather a sizeable population of birds who can maneuver through the twisted metal labyrinth of the engine. The problem with this, however, is once thespiders are gone, then the engines will be infested with birds. Not a problem. Next we will release snakes into the engines to devour the remaining birds. After the snakes are done, we will need the assistance of many mongoose to get the snakes. I am not sure what feeds on the mongoose in the wild, so I will assume any large apex predator would work (i.e. polar bears) so we will use polar bears to finally remove the mongoose infestation.
This is obviously the best strategy to combat those bastards at Honda. Now, it's up to Nissan to front the money and manpower to issue each owner of a recalled car a population of size-specific birds, a population of bird-eating snakes, one or two mongoose, and a polar bear. I think it is the least they can do. Please fix my engine.
P.S. Is acquirement a real word? I would personally use acquisition but there has been much debate. Thank you, lords of industry.

My 2006 Mazda Engine finally got repaired. Despite perfect maintenance the engine blew up. I wish we all could get together and do something.

I think the posts are all similar. My son has a 2005 Mazda 6 - it was off the road and in the garage for one year. I would go start it periodically because he was out of town. The engine blew after about six months when I tried to start it and replacement was $3700. Mazda would not take care of it. They said he didn't take care of the car. Before that he fought to have the catalytic converter fixed. The car has been problemetic from the day he bought it. He wrote corporate office they more or less laughed at the request because of his mileage of 91,000. Hope this replacement engine lasts a bit.

out of curiosity - for you first generation Mazda6 owners who have had engines blown - do you have the 6 cyl or the 4 cyl.
Thanks in advance.
