I'm skeptical of this, but wanted to hear other opinions.https://www.bgprod.com/programs/engine-assurance/
- Get your first BG oil change (includes some kind of flush/additives/whatever) before 80k miles
- Repeat every 10k miles at most
- If the engine EVER fails, they contribute up to $3,000 to the repair. Unlimited time, unlimited miles.
$3,000 covers most of the cost of a full engine replacement with a Mazda reman.
I'm at 75k miles now, with 2 years and 25k miles left on the original Mazda engine warranty. There's a Mazda dealership near me that does these services, and they confirmed that there'd be no implications for the Mazda warranty if I have the work done there, as long as I stick to Mazda-recommended OCIs.
So, why not get this done every 7,500 miles (max OCI per Mazda) for the remainder of the Mazda warranty, and then every 10,000 miles afterward?
Extended OCIs with potential snake oil sounds like a bad idea, especially for a rotary engine, right?
But, assuming I've done the math correctly... with $3k of engine coverage, factoring in the more expensive but less frequent oil changes, it'd basically have to cut my engine's lifespan by two-thirds or more
to not be worth it. I can't imagine it being THAT bad.
What am I missing?
