Warranty coverage

  • What is covered
    • NOTE: This is a general guide to Mazda warranty coverage and the warranty coverage can vary between Mazda models or could be different between model years. Always refer to your warranty information booklet for the exact warranty coverage on your vehicle. While we strive to maintain this web site information accurately and without errors, the terms and conditions outlined in the warranty information booklet will prevail.

      Mazda warrants that your new Mazda Vehicle is free from defects in material or workmanship, subject to the following terms and conditions. A Mazda Dealer will make necessary repairs, using new or remanufactured parts, to correct any problem covered by this warranty without charge to you.

      Basic Coverage Period
