It was an optional package but the engine is different, a factory turbo was added like a mazdaspeed protege, mazdaspeed3, mazdaspeed6....

pb, talk to and/or try aCar for android. It seems to have expense tracking and the developer is very responsive.

Same argument for us Mazda 6 owners. there's only 2 engine choices but 3 cars really, I4, V6, and the Turbocharged I-4 (mazdaspeed 6). All those all-wheel drive hoon machines are making us look bad!
It boils down to having the right engine choices... you guys should team up with edmunds for the breakdown in car lists or something.

I'd just like to be able to login to Fuelly and input: I did this service at X mileage and it's due again in X miles or every X miles (trackit: Vehicle Edition for blackberry does this perfectly). Forget all the automatic stuff. If someone wants to type a couple of numbers from their manual and setup a schedule they should be able to do it easily (unlike on the BB's tiny keyboard).
rem83 is right but I use products that go way beyond what my car will take out of them for the sole purpose that I can rely on them and still keep a 6000 mile base service schedule. Every 6k I do oil drain and refill and I rotate & balance tires. Every 12K I do a drain and refill on the ATX, clean my air filter (it's an aftermarket one), and change my oil filter. Every 30K as per warranty I do a trans flush even though it's not required due to the drain and refill interval (I will not continue to flush until I have significant proof by doing fluid analysis to contest any warranty denials). Also about every 30K I'll change brake fluid because dot3 absorbs water. Every 60K a coolant change and water pump replacement.
It'd just be nice to have all due service e-mailed to me as I approach a mileage milestone so I can plan the day without a car and get a ride setup after ordering all needed fluids and filters.
