2016 sx with 81k - Will warranty cover issue with a control arm

I have a 2016 sx with 81k, started hearing some noise coming from the drivers side front wheel while going over small road bumps (< 50km), anything above and the road noise cancels the sound out.

My old mazda had continuous control arm issues with their bushings dying prematurely. The noise is very similar, small knocking sound on the rebound of a bumb or uneven pavement.

Question is, will warranty cover this? The car was a dealer used vehicle, It has 16k on it when i bought it. They reset the warranty when I took possession.

Thanks!

That's great, I will call my dealership today and book a time!

Edit: I called my dealership, they said the repair maynot be covered unless i had extended warranty? Do you have extended coverage for them to process the work?

Indeed, those front end parts are NOT covered under what we call down here the 10/100K powertrain warranty, but instead are covered under the 5/60 bumper to bumper, which has expired. Some sort of extended warranty would be your only hope here.

Do you mean 81k km or miles?

Ah, good point. It would be 100K km, so 81K would be inside the full coverage warranty.

Yes, sorry, k = KM. sorry for the misunderstanding. I went thru my paperwork last night, and when I bought the car from the dealership, i forced them to restart the warranty. so technically, I have full till 120k KM. I did notice i had paperwork from an earlier recall that replaced a balljoint and linkage. I am bringing all the papers with my on monday to ensure I don't get jerked around. I've had enough issues with the car, any more and i'm getting rid of it.

Update:
Got the car in, fully covered under warranty. Apparently a control linkage was starting to get loose, they swapped it out and the car is fee of knocking sounds. i've had 4 warranty claims over the past 6 months, these guys are getting to know me. lol.
