NOTICE CONCERNING THE LEGAL WARRANTY

The Act provides a warranty on the goods you purchase or lease : they must be usable for normal use for a reasonable length of time.
The Consumer Protection Act gives a warranty on all goods you purchase or lease from a merchant.

The goods must be useable:

  • For the purposes for which they are ordinarily used (section 37 of the Act) and
  • In normal use for a reasonable length of time, which may vary according to the price paid, the terms of the contract and the conditions of use (section 38 of the Act).
For more information on this legal warranty, go to the website of the Office de la protection du comsommateur at www.opc.gouv.qc.ca.

Most Yamahas are protected by a factory warranty, but you may want a little extra peace of mind. We Get You.

No one offers superior engineering, style and performance like Yamaha. That´s why we stand behind our products with the industry´s best warranty coverage and our own extended coverage plan, Yamaha Protection Plus (YPP).

Select your term:

YPP gives you the option to extend your factory warranty, depending on your product and requirements (some purchases may not be eligible for YPP). Combined with Yamaha's unsurpassed reputation for reliability, YPP provides you with the peace of mind and protection you deserve.

SIMPLICITY

While other plans bog you down in the details, factory-backed YPP gives you bulletproof protection from the unexpected. And it's as simple to use and understand as your Yamaha factory warranty.

PROTECTION FROM EXPENSIVE BILLS

YPP is there whether your repair is a few dollars or a few thousand.

NO DEDUCTIBLE TO PAY - EVER

Under YPP, Yamaha picks up the entire cost to repair every applicable manufacturing defect.

PICK UP WHERE YOUR FACTORY WARRANTY LEAVES OFF

YPP takes over automatically - and immediately - when your factory warranty expires.

ADDED VALUE FOR YOUR YAMAHA

Your YPP warranty is transferable, increasing the value of your Yamaha if you decide to sell or trade.

NO CLAIM FORMS

Since we already know your Yamaha, there's no need for you to fill out lengthy claim forms. Your YPP information is available at every authorized Yamaha dealer across Canada.

AFFORDABLE OPTIONS

Purchase years of YPP coverage at a fraction of what a single major repair costs. You can also use the Yamaha Financial Services program to finance this coverage.

REAL PEACE OF MIND

Yamaha is ready to step in to make necessary repairs (excluding those due to normal wear or aging) using genuine Yamaha parts and factory authorized technicians for the full duration of your coverage.
