Once this happens, you need to get the dash replaced. The extended warranty means you’ll have more time – 10 years with no mileage limitation.

The offer applies to:

  • 2009-2013 Mazda6 vehicles built February 4, 2008 through August 24, 2012.
  • 2010 Mazda3 vehicles built October 7, 2008 through April 28, 2010.

Mazda notes the offer “does not apply to crash pads that are discolored, warped, or split.”
