Read somewhere on this thread that the engine seems to churn more horsepower once you hit 10k on the ODO

I hope that is true since the lack of juice is my main complaint with the car.
The zoom factor does seem to ramp up after about 10k, at least this has been the case with mine. Seems to pull a lot stronger now...

The best way I can put it is that it's an increase to responsiveness. There's no added power, there's no added torque, it's simply the car responding the moment you hit the pedal, and it locks in and goes.

It's still a 4 cylinder, but it's a fast non-turbo 4 cylinder.
@fmatt - If you're looking for some added low-end torque, head to the Orange Virus Tuning threads. With a proper tune, you can stay on OEM parts, you don't need 93 octane, and you'll be able to rework your torque curve to suit your needs.

At about 21.5k... Bought it in January. Long work commute and drove it to Western New York from Central Minnesota twice since then.

As a side, still suffering from a whistling noise that I noticed the night I drove it home... Mazda has it again, this time with corporate involved.

I'll have owned my 6T for 6mos this Friday and just rolled 12,000 on it. No complaints now that the infotainment is (FINALLY!) working right. Excuse me while I change an air filter now.
Thank you for reminding me about the air filter, mine I'm sure is in need of another change. I just hit 62k miles this morning on the way to work.

Going to check my cabin filter while I'm at it.

Haha yeah when I first got the car (Feb 2013) I was doing 128 miles commuting 5 days a week. After about 5 months, I changed positions in the company and my commute dropped to 16 miles daily :lol:

That lasted for about 2 years until I got a new job in Jan 2015 and my commute went back up to 80 miles daily.

Ticker said it perfect, though...

So far so good, I think my dealership is regreting giving me free lifetime oil changes and tire rotations though, that combined with unlimited mileage warranty, how can you go wrong.

I will hit 10,000 on my way home from work today. I purchased my 6 back on August 7th, 2015! 62 miles round trip for work daily and every other month I drive down to Southern Indiana which is roughly a 700 round trip. I had 103,000 on my 2010 Speed3 when I traded it in.

For life? Wow that's a good deal. All I get are free inspections and free car washes for life. I'd utilize the latter a lot more if their wash wasn't a car-scraper. :(

I got the car too early to have been given the unlimited milage warranty, unfortunately. My 36k mile one ran out a LONG time ago haha.

No. It's a 2014, though I purchased in in Feb of 2013. Wanted to get it when they were first released in Dec of 2012, but there weren't any Grand Touring Snowflake White with the options I wanted available in all of New England.

I have 5500 miles since early November. Long commute every day, but the gas mileage seems low for highway and city driving (majority is 45 mph and up). My average in 26.8. Kind of a bummer.
