Only covered under the drive train warranty...you can see if the dealership will warranty it. Check this though, once you have the dealership install them you get a 12mo/12k mile parts warranty...that is if you buy them there as well, so if they fail within that time you get them replaced for free.
FOR SALE:'04 TiGray MT parts car
Current ride: 2010 Celestial Blue MS3, Corksport SRI/TIP
Long story short, car wouldn't start had it towed to dealer. They said it was flooded and during their testing they said it's misfiring and I need new coils and plugs. Being the lazy person that I am, I had the dealer do the work $599.00. I'm way past Warranty coverage but I knew of the TSB for hard start and ignition coils. I brought it to the dealer's attention and then contacted Mazda North America. I told them that based on my less than 5k miles a year and if they would fix the flooding under warranty, why wouldn't they do the same for the coils and plugs? Well I filed my complaint and i'm waiting to hear back from them.
Being that I had the car for 5 years and never flooded it before i never thought it could be flooded. (So much for revving till 4k rpm for 10 secs and shutting down) At most I thought it was the battery and I changed that myself.
