Mazda Launches Unlimited Mileage Warranty in Canada

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

MAZDA, Road-test.org, flagworld.com/roadtestsRICHMOND 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.”

Mazda Unveils All-New Mazda MX-5

– Global launches starting in Japan this autumn –

2015 Mazda MX-5, Miata, Road-Test.orgHIROSHIMA, Japan, Sept. 3, 2014 /CNW/ – Mazda Motor Corporation today celebrated the unveiling of the fourth generation Mazda MX-5 (known as Roadster in Japan) together with fans at events held simultaneously in Japan, USA and Spain. The all-new MX-5, which adopts both SKYACTIV technology and Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion design language, will be rolled out to global markets starting in 2015.

The MX-5 is an iconic model representing Mazda’s vehicle-engineering philosophy—the pursuit of driving pleasure. “Innovate in order to preserve” was the motto for the fourth generation, as the development team searched for innovations that go beyond simple evolution. Environmental and safety demands are much more stringent than they were when the first generation MX-5 was introduced 25 years ago, but the fourth generation stays true to the model’s original aim of offering the pure driving fun that only a lightweight sports car can. It achieves this through the adoption of SKYACTIV technology and refinement of its appeal to the senses and sensations through which people enjoy cars.

The design of the all-new MX-5 reveals another layer to Mazda’s KODO design language. The exquisite proportions make the driver and passenger stand out, and both the interior and exterior evoke the exhilaration of open-top driving. It is the most compact of any generation MX-5 so far and is more than 100 kilograms lighter than the model it replaces, promising a dramatic leap in Jinba-ittai driving fun.

As of July 2014, total production volume of the Mazda MX-5 exceeded 940,000 units and it continues to hold the Guinness World Record for the best-selling two-seater sports car. This highly-celebrated model has received over 200 awards from around the globe including Japan Car of the Year 2005-2006.

Moving forward, Mazda will continue to develop products which offer all customers driving pleasure and outstanding environmental and safety performance.2015 Mazda MX-5, Miata, Road-Test.org
