#3 of 5 Just got my third engine- what to do?
Jan 01, 2013 (12:01 pm)
Long story, but will make it short - I purchased a new 2004 RX8 from a Mazda dealer in 2004 and meticuously maintained and serviced the vehicle through a dealer. The vehicle eventually developed issues with starting and stalling and eventually (reluctantly)Mazda authorized a new engine approximately 10 months ago. After only putting on another 5000 miles or so, the engine stalled while on a highway and Mazda authorized and replaced the engine again. Now I just got the vehicle back and am torn between keeping it and risking more engine issues or just selling it for what I can get. Any thoughts or information on this ongoing engine issue and how Mazda has been treating their owners would be appreciated.

I also bought a 2004 rx8 in nov 2003--no problems yet except emission system leak so I can't answer your question,but let me ask you how many miles were on your 1st engine when it was replaced.

I had approx 65,000 on the first engine, put about 5000 on the second and now have about 1000 on the third
