2009-2011 Tribute Throttle Body Warranty Extension Program Special Service Program (SSP) 95

Mazda Motor Corporation is extending the warranty coverage for throttle body replacement on certain 2009-2011 Tribute vehicles produced from April 14, 2008 through May 30, 2011.

The warranty for throttle body replacement will be extended to 10 years (120 months) from the original warranty start date or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first. If a vehicle has already exceeded the time or mileage limits, this coverage will last through January 31, 2015.

 

Affected vehicles may develop contamination on the internal motor contacts of the throttle body, resulting in intermittent electrical connectivity.

If this condition is present, the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) or Wrench light will illuminate and the vehicle may enter a fail-safe mode.

In this mode, engine power and vehicle speed are reduced, while full functionality of the power steering, power braking, lighting, and climate control systems are maintained.

 

If diagnosis identifies the throttle body as the causal component, dealers are authorized to replace the throttle body under this warranty extension program.

This service must be performed at no charge to the vehicle owner.

 

This is a warranty extension for the specified repair only.

Inspection and replacement of non-failed parts will not be eligible for reimbursement to the dealer or customer.

This program extends the warranty period for actual failures due to defects in workmanship or materials in accordance with Mazda Warranty Policy and Procedures.
