What is included with the Mazda warranty package?

Mazda has quite a streak going among the rest of the automotive industry. The automaker has been named the “Best Car Brand” by U.S. News & World Report. There are a lot of factors that go into winning this award, not the least of which is how reliable each and every Mazda vehicle is designed to be when it leaves its production facility. As much work as goes into to ensuring that Mazda’s cars and crossover SUVs live up to the manufacturer’s standards, sometimes things don’t go as planned. To make sure owners are protected, Mazda has developed one of the longest-lasting and comprehensive warranties in the industry. So, what is included with the Mazda warranty package? Let’s take a look.

New-Vehicle Limited Warranty

Every new, untitled vehicle that leaves the Gorman McCracken Mazda showroom is covered in three distinct areas. The first of these is the automaker’s new-vehicle limited warranty. This covers any defects in materials and how they’re put together and lasts for 36 months or 36,000 miles – whichever comes first. Owners can then transfer any remaining time and/or mileage to a second owner if they decide to sell or trade-in their Mazda vehicle, thus adding additional value.

Powertrain Limited Warranty

Engine and transmission troubles are always in the back of the mind of every vehicle owner. The powertrain limited warranty provided by Mazda lasts for 60 months or 60,000 miles (whichever occurs first), and any time or mileage remaining can be transferred to a new owner. It covers defects that may occur with the powertrain during the coverage period.

Roadside Assistance Program

When something goes wrong with a vehicle, it almost never happens at a convenient time at a convenient location. The Mazda 24/7 emergency road assistance package gives owners a lifeline if a part or component covered by the other two warranty elements of the program. It lasts for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Some restrictions and exclusions apply. Be sure to ask a Gorman McCracken Mazda representative today for more information.

If you need to have your vehicle looked at to have a warranty issue taken care of or just standard scheduled maintenance, make an appointment with the Gorman McCracken Mazda Service Department today.
