Outside the United States

Government regulations in the United States require that automobiles meet specific
emission regulations and safety standards. Therefore, vehicles built for use in the United
States 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 the United States. However, in the event that you are moving to Canada
permanently, Mazda vehicles built for use in the United States could be eligible for
exportation to Canada with specific vehicle modifications to comply with the Canadian
Motor Vehicle Safety requirements (CMVSS).

NOTE.

The above is applicable for a permanent import/export situation and not related to travelers on
vacation.

You may have the following problems if you do take your vehicle outside of the United
States:
- 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.

Please refer to your Manufacturer's Warranty Booklet for more information.
