Dead as a dodo
« on: February 10, 2018, 04:02:45 PM »
Dead battery at 2 and a half years; never had one go that quickly before. The AA's on the way; totally forgot I had Mazda breakdown assistance too.

Googling I find some anecdotes saying the battery was covered by the 3 year warranty but lots saying it isn't too. Anyone got a definitive answer one way or the other for my 2015 3?

Looking at Mazdas own bumf if you buy a battery from them as a replacement part it has a 36k mile or 3 year warranty...it would be very odd indeed if the oem one didn't have the same warranty.

Seems to have died very prematurely..have you checked you don't have any drain on It?

Yes I would of thought a brand new car would carry a 3 year  battery warranty. Have you contacted your Mazda dealership?

When you say dead, do you mean dead as in kaput, or flat, as in needing charging?
