It's called the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. However, good luck bringing that up to a SA at a dealership. They'll say ok, and while you pay through the nose for an attorney to go after them your car is sitting broken in a parking lot at a dealer.

The issue has come up quite a bit in the Mazdaspeed community with certain dealership service departments.
