Congrats on the 1st anniversary ! Hope you'll enjoy your car for a long time to come. The transmission on these cars are geared towards fuel economy than performance, so you'll have to give her some stick to stay in the power band. Road noise comes standard with those awful dunlops and fragile paint ? Well that's unfortunately signature mazda.

I havent heard of sludge being a problem with skyactiv engines yet. There are members here who have clocked 150k+ miles without any problems. Just stay on top of oil changes and with the number of miles you clock in an year, i assume you do a lot of highway driving ? So i dont think you'll have too much to think about sludge. Goodluck.
