for a 1000 Miles dont run it hard, high rev, or go over 85MPH. dont change the oil for the first 5000 Miles because theres special "break-In" oil in the engine.
This is absolutely wrong, I'm sorry to say.

First off, run the entire RPM range, just don't hit it too hard. Don't break real hard either, if you can avoid it. Speed is irrellevant. There is no special break in oil, although the time at which you change that is different depending on who you ask. Mazda just recommends its normal oil change period, but it could never hurt to change it early on the first one, just because there will be extra metal in there.
