12-18-14 - MAZDA CANADA ROLLS OUT UNLIMITED MILEAGE WARRANTY

Cold weather might be starting to grip parts of Canada, but many Mazda owner's are going to be able to drive their 2015 Mazda cars and crossovers from Vancouver to Montreal with a little more peace of mind. That's because Mazda Canada is instituting an unlimited mileage warranty for its new models.

The updated plan starts with all 2015 model year vehicles (even those already sold), and the scheme simply removes that distance limit on everything but the emissions defect coverage. That means that the Mazdas have one year of service adjustments, three years of new vehicle coverage, five years on the powertrain, seven years against corrosion and three years of roadside assistance for as many kilometers as the owner drives.

The change removes at least one, tiny piece of anxiety about buying a new vehicle because it's easy to know when the coverage ends. "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," Kory Koreeda, president of Mazda Canada, in the automaker's announcement.

Mazda Launches Unlimited Mileage Warranty in Canada

-- New warranty lets owners drive as much as they want, as far as they want --

RICHMOND HILL, ON, Nov. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Mazda Canada Inc. announced today a new Unlimited Mileage Warranty, eliminating the distance limitations on their factory warranty coverage allowing owners to drive as much, or as far, as they want.

The Unlimited Mileage 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 3 years, regardless of the number of kilometers driven. Additional warranties cover Powertrain components for a period of 5 years, unlimited mileage; body sheet metal perforation for 7 years, unlimited mileage; and roadside assistance for 3 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 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."

2013 MaZDa3 AND 2014 MaZDa CX-5 NAMED 'TOP SAFETY PICK' BY INSURANCE INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY

January 15, 2013 - Mazda's Best-Selling Vehicles Receive High Honours for Safety from IIHS

Richmond Hill, ON, Jan. 15, 2013 -- The 2013 Mazda3 and the 2014 Mazda CX-5 were just recognized as a "Top Safety Pick" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Both vehicles received the organization's highest possible crash safety rating of "Good" in all frontal moderate overlap, side, rear impact, and roof strength tests."

"The Mazda3 and the CX-5 are two very important vehicles for Mazda and our customers," said Kory Koreeda, president and CEO, Mazda Canada Inc. (MCI). "Both of these vehicles are outstanding performers on the road and it is only fitting that they perform at a high standard when it comes to safety. Receiving the 'Top Safety Pick' distinction is a testament to Mazda's dedication to building vehicles that will keep their occupants safe and sound."

Vehicles receive ratings based on results from the Institute's evaluations on front, side and rear impact crash tests as well as a roof strength test, which measures occupant protection in the event of a rollover. Each vehicle's overall evaluation is based on measurements of intrusion specific to each crash angle and the injury on crash test dummies positioned within the vehicles at the time of collision.

All 2014 CX-5 vehicles feature the full suite of SKYACTIV technologies. The SKYACTIV-Body and SKYACTIV-Chassis help to contribute to a rigid and quiet ride. Additionally, both of these design elements also contribute to CX-5's reinforced structure, which works best to absorb impacts and not transfer that energy to its occupants. SKYACTIV-Body and SKYACTIV-Chassis incorporate a high amount of high-tensile steel (more than 60 percent), which saves weight and gives CX-5 more strength. CX-5 was also the first production vehicle to utilize 1,800MPa ultra-high tensile steel, which are utilized in the front and rear bumper beams, and results in parts that are 20 percent stronger and 4.8 kg (10.6 lb) lighter than previous generation bumpers.

Mazda3, the first vehicle to receive SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, features SKYACTIV components with its engine and transmissions. Mazda3 was also named a "Top Safety Pick" for the 2012 model year.

Standard safety equipment on both the 2013 Mazda3 and the 2014 CX-5 includes six airbags (advanced dual front, front-seat mounted and full-length side-curtain), four wheel disc brakes with anti-lock brakes (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) combined with a Traction Control System (TCS), a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), a "crushable" brake and accelerator pedal assembly and collapsible steering column, side-impact door beams, three-point safety belts for all seating positions, front seatbelt pretensioners with force limiters as well as Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH). Available options include a Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system and Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) with auto-leveling bi-xenon headlamps.

Founded in 1959, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is an independent, non-profit, scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing deaths, injuries and property damage that result from crashes on the nation's highways and roads. The Institute, along with affiliate the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI), supports highway safety efforts and accident prevention through vehicle crash safety tests as well as consumer education, such as driver behavior and roadway designs.
