Does anybody know how long should the running-in period be? According to my manual, it's the first 1000 km. Is that enough? My friend told me that I should extend it to 1500 or 2000 km.

Well, if you go easy on the engine for the first 150,000 km, it will surely run smoother the second 150,000km. You can make your break-in period as long as you feel comfortable- it's always better to go easy on the engine!

If Mazda recommends 1000km, that's probably sufficient. My own experience says that all the major changes I noticed in the engine were withing this period.

I wouldn't go stomping all over the motor at 1001 km - but if Mazda says 1000km that's what I'd do.
