I don't think you can make a blanket statement about any manufacturer -- there are so many variables. I think it's safe to say that MOST of Mazda's powertrains are good, but they certainly all aren't. Mazda has finally purged the CX-7 from its port

I changed my 2012 Honda accord V6 EX-L over from Honda's 0w-20w to Pennzoil platinum. The car runs smoother, but the low end torque seems diminished.(starting from a light or stop sign) Is this normal with a full synthetic oil? Thanks.

It's fairly common in the mechanically injected cummins/diesel crowd as an alternative fuel when mixed with diesel. Not sure I'd run it in a common rail diesel though.

I changed the PCV valve on my 05 once and it was pefectly clean when I did. I sold the car with 180k miles on it. I'm not sure what could be causing it to clog. The car always consumed 1/2-1qt of oil every 5k miles. fwiw.
