Mazda replaced the VC, VC gasket and OCV. No charge. Covered under warranty. So far so good, but I expect it will leak again at some point as many do regardless of miles. When I checked the OCV on the 2016 Mazda 6 loaner car that had only 34,000 miles on it, it was already oiled up and leaking a bit. That was telling. It seems to be hit or miss with them. I have no idea why. It could just be a bad batch was in production or it's a poorly designed part. It will largely go unoticed by most Skyactiv engine owners as they rarely pull the engine cover off to even notice it. It's also not a major leak.....
