    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Went to start my 2019 Mazda 3 today and the battery is dead. In fairness, it's been sitting in my garage for a week and it was probably at the dealer for some time as well. With all of the electronics in this car are Mazda's notorious for battery problems? If so, should I invest in a good...

    Evening all, New to the forum, so please excuse if this is in the wrong area. I think it should be ok though.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have a 2015 Mazda3. In 2017, the battery was replaced under warranty. Now, the battery might be failing again. If it fails, would it be changed under warranty again? or because I'm past the original 3 years warranty, they won't warranty the replacement battery?
