Mazda launches unlimited mileage warranty in Canada


RICHMOND HILL, Ont. – Mazda Canada Inc. announced Nov. 13 a new unlimited mileage warranty, eliminating the distance limitations on its factory warranty coverage allowing owners to drive as much, or as far, as they want.

Mazda Canada said the warranty becomes the new standard factory warranty on all Mazda vehicles starting with the 2015 model year.

The basic warranty for Mazda vehicles covers all parts found to be factory defective for three years, regardless of the number of kilometres driven.

Additional warranties cover powertrain components for a period of five years, unlimited mileage, body sheet metal perforation for seven years, unlimited mileage, and roadside assistance for three years, unlimited mileage.

“Mazda's focus is on long-term customer satisfaction,” said Kory Koreeda, president of Mazda Canada Inc. “By offering our customers an unlimited mileage warranty, we believe it will enhance their ownership experience by alleviating concerns such as kilometre limitations, repair costs and resale value.”

The automaker says the unlimited mileage warranty will be retroactive to all customers who have already purchased a 2015 model year Mazda vehicle, and is fully transferable to subsequent owners.

“An unlimited mileage warranty fits perfectly with our brand,” said David Klan, senior director of sales, marketing and regional operations.

“Mazda is a company that always challenges traditional conventions to make improvements. Driving enjoyment is essential to Mazda; it's in our DNA, and every car we make. So offering a different kind of warranty that doesn't restrict customers from enjoying their vehicle and driving as much, or as far, as they want is an ideal fit,” Klan said.
