▼ Satisfaction Review Process

Your complete and permanent satisfaction is of primary concern to Mazda. All Authorized 
Mazda Dealers have both the knowledge and tools to keep your Mazda in top condition. In 
our experience, any questions, problems, or complaints regarding the operation of your 
Mazda or any other general service transactions are most effectively resolved by your 
dealer. If the cause of your dissatisfaction cannot adequately be addressed by normal 
dealership procedures, we recommend that you take the following steps:

▼ STEP 1: Contact the Mazda Dealer

Discuss the matter with a member of dealership management. If the Service Manager has 
already reviewed your concerns, contact the owner of the dealership or its General 
Manager.

▼ STEP 2: Contact the Mazda Regional Office

If you feel that you still require assistance, ask the dealer Service Manager to arrange for 
you to meet the local Mazda Service Representative. If more expedient, contact Mazda 
Canada Inc.Regional Office nearest you for such arrangements. Regional Office address 
and phone numbers are shown (page 9-5).

▼ STEP 3: Contact the Mazda Customer Relations Department

If still not substantially satisfied, contact the Customer Relations Department, Mazda 
Canada Inc., 305 Milner Avenue, Suite 400 Scarborough, Ontario M1B 3V4 Canada

5. Present odometer reading

6. Your dealer’s name and location

7. The nature of your problem and/or cause of dissatisfaction

Customer Information

Customer Assistance

Please recognize that the resolution of service problems in most cases requires the use of 
your Mazda dealer’s service facilities, personnel and equipment. We urge you to follow the 
above three steps in sequence therefore for most effective results.

▼ Mediation/Arbitration Program

Occasionally a customer concern cannot be resolved through Mazda’s Customer 
Satisfaction Program. If after exhausting the procedures in this manual your concern is still 
not resolved, you have another option.

Mazda Canada Inc. participates in an arbitration program administered by the Canadian 
Motor Vehicle Arbitration Plan (CAMVAP). CAMVAP will advise you about how your 
concern may be reviewed and resolved by an independent third party through binding 
arbitration.

Your complete satisfaction is the goal of Mazda Canada Inc. and our dealers.
Mazda’s participation in CAMVAP makes a valuable contribution to our achieving that 
goal. There is no charge for using CAMVAP. CAMVAP results are fast, fair and final as the 
award is binding on both you and Mazda Canada Inc.

▼ Canadian Motor Vehicle Arbitration Plan (CAMVAP)

If a specific item of concern arises, where a solution cannot be reached between an owner, 
Mazda, and/or one of it’s dealers (that all parties cannot agree upon), the owner may wish 
to use the services offered by the Canadian Motor Vehicle
Arbitration Plan (CAMVAP).

CAMVAP uses the services of Provincial Administrators to assist consumers in scheduling 
and preparing for their arbitration hearings. However, before you can proceed with 
CAMVAP you must follow your Mazda dispute resolution process as outlined previously.

CAMVAP is fully implemented in all provinces and territories.
Consumers wishing to obtain further information about the Program can obtain an 
information booklet from your dealer, the Provincial Administrator or the Canadian Motor 
Vehicle Arbitration Plan Office at the following address or telephone number.

Customer Information

Warranty

Government regulations in the United States and Canada require that automobiles meet 
specific emission regulations and safety standards. Therefore, vehicles built for use in the 
United States, its territories, and Canada may differ from those sold in other countries.

The differences may make it difficult or even impossible for your vehicle to receive 
satisfactory servicing in other countries. We strongly recommend that you NOT take your 
Mazda outside these areas.
You may have these problems if you do:

• Recommended fuel may be unavailable. Any kind of leaded fuel or low-octane fuel will 

affect vehicle performance and damage the emission controls and engine.

• Proper repair facilities, tools, testing equipment, and replacement parts may not be 

available.

The Mazda warranty applies only to Mazda vehicles registered and normally operated in 
the United States, its territories, and Canada.

Outside the United States and Canada

Customer Information

Warranty

Non-genuine parts and accessories for Mazda vehicles can be found in stores.
These may fit your vehicle, but they are not approved by Mazda for use with Mazda 
vehicles. When you install non-genuine parts or accessories, they could affect your 
vehicle’s performance or safety system; the Mazda warranty doesn’t cover this. Before you 
install any non-genuine parts or accessories, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

Mazda assumes no responsibility for death, injury, or expenses that may result from the 
installation of add-on non-genuine parts or accessories.

Add-On Non-Genuine Parts and Accessories

Installation of Non-Genuine Parts or Accessories:
Installation of non-genuine parts or accessories is dangerous. Improperly designed 
parts or accessories could seriously affect your vehicle’s performance or safety system. 
This could cause you to have an accident or increase your chances of injuries in an 
accident. Always consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer before you install non-genuine 
parts or accessories.

Add-On Electrical and Electronic Equipment:
Incorrectly choosing or installing improper add-on equipment or choosing an 
improper installer is dangerous. Essential systems could damaged, causing engine 
stalling, air-bag (SRS) activation, ABS inactivation, or a fire in the vehicle.
Be very careful in choosing and installing add-on electrical equipment, such as 
mobile telephones, two-way radios, stereo systems, and car alarm systems.

Cell Phones

Cell Phones Warning

Use of Cell Phones and Other Devices by Driver:
Although not Mazda products, use of any electrical devices such as cell phones, 
computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation or other devices by the driver while the 
vehicle is moving is dangerous. Dialing a number on a cell phone while driving also 
ties-up the driver’s hands. Use of these devices will cause the driver to be distracted 
and could lead to a serious accident. If a passenger is unable to use the device, pull off 
the right-of-way to a safe area before use. If use of a cell phone is necessary despite 
this warning, use a hands-free system to at least leave the hands free to drive the 
vehicle. Never use a cell phone or other electrical device while the vehicle is moving 
and, instead, concentrate on the full-time job of driving.
Please comply to the legal regulations concerning the use of communication 
equipment in vehicles in your country.

Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQGS)

This information relates to the tire grading system developed by the U.S. National 
Highway Traffic Safety Administration for grading tires by tread wear, traction, and 
temperature performance.

▼ Tread Wear

The tread wear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested 
under controlled conditions on a specified government test course.
For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one-and-a-half times as well on the government 
course as a tire graded 100.
The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use, however, 
and may depart significantly from the norm because of variations in driving habits, service 
practices and differences in road characteristics and climate.

▼ Traction-AA, A, B, C

The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B, and C. These grades represent 
the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on 
specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor 
traction performance.

▼ Temperature-A, B, C

The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, represent the tire’s resistance to the 
generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions 
on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel.
Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire 
life, and excessive temperatures can lead to sudden tire failure.

Grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all passenger vehicle tires must meet 
under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent 
higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by 
law.

Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQGS)

The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on braking (straight ahead) traction 
tests and does not include acceleration cornering (turning), hydroplaning, or peak 
traction characteristics.

WARNING

9-13

Customer Information

Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQGS)

These grades will be added to the sidewalls of passenger vehicle tires over the next several 
years according to a schedule established by the NHTSA and the tire manufacturers.

The grade of tires available as standard or optional equipment on Mazda vehicle may vary 
with respect to grade.

ALL PASSENGER VEHICLE TIRES MUST CONFORM TO THESE GRADES AND 
TO ALL OTHER FEDERAL TIRE-SAFETY REQUIREMENTS.

▼ Uniform Tire Quality Grading

Quality grades can be found where applicable on the tire sidewall between tread shoulder 
and maximum section width.
For example:
Treadwear 200 Traction AA Temperature A

The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated 
and not overloaded. Excessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either 
separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure.

Reporting Safety Defects

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash or could cause 
injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety 
Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Mazda Motor Corporation (Your Mazda 
Importer/Distributor).

If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a 
safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign. 
However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your 
dealer, or Mazda Motor Corporation (Your Mazda Importer/Distributor).

To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotline toll-free at 1 (800) 424-
9393 (or 366-0123 in Washington, D.C. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of 
Transportation. Washington, D.C. 20590. You can also obtain other information about 
motor vehicle safety from the Hotline.
