I d hate to say this, but I am glad you're having the same problems as I and that you're from Canada. On that note, sorry that you are enduring the same frustration. I commend you on your progress with the Mazda rep and CAMVAP. I have had my car in three times with no change in engine performance. Specifically, without repeating the same things as you, my engine has noticeably less (not much, but still noticeable) power than when i bought it. I have 6500 km on it and this had started around 2000-2500 km. I also experience a hesitation at about 3000 - 3200 rpm. I most notice the engine power loss in first gear. With the head mechanic here in Calgary, he took a demo and my car out (2.3 L) and agreed there is a difference with my car being slightly slower. I explain the original power in first as pulling hard enough almost breaking traction, continuous throughout the majority of the powerband. Now, with the power loss, it's not even close.. very similar to my protege5. Infact, i can't really tell much of a difference. Anyway, I am on the verge of following suit with CAMVAP, but I'd like to hear what you have to say after your meeting. Please keep me and others posted. I am reassured with your experience that we might have this problem resolved.. Did you find anything out with lemon laws or consumer protection? I am still looking for some kind of concrete legislaiton to reference to. But the dealer still can't resolve the problem.. Any other advise, tactic or method in negotiating/communicating to the dealer?
