With all car dealers in Luzon currently closed, many owners will miss their preventive maintenance schedules. This shouldn’t be a problem for out-of-warranty vehicles but for vehicles that still have its warranty, this can be a problem. But what about those vehicles who are still under an automaker’s free maintenance program, such as Mazda’s YOJIN3?
Failing to stick to the free maintenance interval often voids the privilege, but if you are a Mazda owner whose vehicle is already due for maintenance during the enhanced community quarantine period, then we have some good news for you. Mazda Philippines is implementing a 30-day grace period from the due date of your free preventive maintenance interval date. This measure was implemented because all of Mazda’s dealers in Luzon will remain closed during the entirety of the enhanced community quarantine.
As a recap, Mazda’s YOJIN3 free maintenance program is valid for three years or 60,000 kilometers, whichever comes first. This includes parts, labor, and oil. All Mazdas have a maintenance interval of 6 months of 10,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.
If your free maintenance schedule falls within the duration of the enhanced community quarantine, then the 30-day grace period is indeed a godsend to affected Mazda owners. This means owners won’t void their free maintenance privilege during the entirety of the enhanced community quarantine.
