    which isn't of huge concern to me as many modern engines do consume some oil. But this hasn't been my experience with other Mazda engines or most other Japanese cars in general.

    Has anybody else noticed the same?

    I am using 5W20 synthetic oil and the car now has 26K miles and it close to 2 years old. We bought it new.
    This is not a Mazda engine. It's a Ford engine so your experience with other Mazda engines is irrelevant. Mine chugs oil too. Can't find a good reason for it. Seems to run fine. I with they had a better dipstick. I can barely read it.

    Yes mine also consumes 1 quart of oil every 6mos or 6k which is when I do my oil changes. I use synthetic also. The engine is quiet and runs fine. The cx9 isn't the only car that does that.
