AU Mazda AUSTRALIA starts 5 year New Car Warranty

About time ......Mazda in Australia has started a 5 Year Unlimited KM New Car Warranty (up from 3 years), effective immediately.
This should of happened a few years ago..

Mazda Australia has introduced a range-wide five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty for all vehicles sold from today onwards.

The news comes soon after Ford upped its standard warranty to five years earlier in May, and Holden followed suit later in July.

Along with the aforementioned, Mazda's five-year/unlimited kilometre assurance program is now in line with Honda, Hyundai and Skoda, but still falls behind Kia which offers seven-year/unlimited kilometre coverage.

However, American EV manufacturer Tesla still leads the market with its eight-year/unlimited kilometre set-up, which also comes with a separate eight-year/160,000km warranty for mechanical and electric issues.

Mazda Australia hopes the improved range-wide warranty will bolster buyer confidence in the brand, according to managing director Vinesh Bhindi.

"The new warranty will give customers another reason to choose Mazda, bolstering confidence in our already solid reputation for quality, hard-wearing cars," he said.

I guess owners can still buy an extra 1 Year MAZDA factory Warranty taking it to 6 years bumper to bumper, usually costs about $1000 AUD.

It's funny how Kia has a longer warranty than Hyundai because they are the same company.

You probably need it for a Kia, though. I still don't get who thought it was a good idea to have the Stinger under the Kia brand.

I wonder if Mazda will ever consider rolling out the 5 year unlimited mileage warranty to the US Market?
Part of me wants to buy a Mazda 6 Grand Touring/Signature up near my mom's house in New Brunswick, just to take advantage of it (the warranty will be honored and can be worked on by any dealer in the US).

Just a few more years...

BC.

awesome news for Australian car buyers.

I wonder if Mazda can bring this to the US (unsure what financial ramificaiton of it are) but I think it would help it be more competitive in this market.
Lets face it, 3 years / 36,000 mile warranties are soooo 2005.
c'mon Mazda, you gotta step your game up.
