The Mazda certified pre-owned warranty covers your used Mazda vehicle for an extended period after your factory warranty expires. The Mazda factory warranty consists primarily of powertrain and bumper-to-bumper coverage, along with and roadside assistance.
If you buy your CPO Mazda before the factory warranty ends, you get the remaining factory warranty coverage, plus the added CPO coverage.
A certified pre-owned (CPO) Mazda should perform as well as a new Mazda. While still technically a used car, a CPO vehicle has undergone a rigorous process to ensure it meets the manufacturer’s standards. A CPO vehicle often carries the original manufacturer’s warranty, protecting it against costly repairs and maintenance fees.
After passing a 160-point inspection, a certified pre-owned Mazda owner receives following benefits:
The Mazda CPO warranty provides protection for your first few years of ownership and will cover defective materials or workmanship. With a long powertrain warranty and additional bumper-to-bumper coverage, Mazda CPO vehicle owners get coverage once the factory warranty ends.
With the Mazda CPO warranty, you won’t have to pay a deductible on repairs, which many other CPO programs require. You can also find special deals and financing options to save even more.
Coverage is also fully transferable at no additional cost, so you can protect the value of your vehicle if it’s sold before the warranty expires.
The powertrain warranty extends coverage from the original purchase date of the vehicle, rather than the date you purchase your pre-owned vehicle. This means that you only get an additional two years and 40,000 miles of coverage once the factory warranty expires.
According to Edmunds editor Matt Jones, nearly a quarter of his past customers found they had confused the typical seven-year powertrain CPO warranty with the 12-month bumper-to-bumper CPO warranty, getting much less coverage after one year than they anticipated. It can also be confusing for customers who believe they are getting seven years of additional coverage after the factory warranty expires.
Unlike many extended warranties that offer trip interruption and rental car coverage, Mazda does not offer these benefits in its CPO program. It only offers towing, key lockout, flat tire change, and emergency gas delivery.
Below is a quick comparison of Mazda CPO coverage and a few other popular brands.
|Vehicle Limited Warranty||Powertrain Warranty||Deductible||Inspection|
|Mazda CPO||12 months/12,000 miles||7 years/100,000 miles||None||160-point inspection|
|Hyundai CPO||None||10 years/100,000 miles||$50||173-point inspection|
|Toyota CPO||12 months/12,000 miles||7 years /100,000 miles||$50||160-point inspection|
|Subaru CPO||None||7 years /100,000 miles||None||152-point inspection|
Some of the best CPO programs include GM, Hyundai, Kia, Porsche, and Lexus. Mazda did not make the list. If you plan on purchasing a used Mazda vehicle, it may be more beneficial to get extended coverage that lasts longer than the CPO warranty. This is especially true for bumper-to-bumper coverage, which only lasts one year.
Though the Mazda certified pre-owned warranty and 160-point inspection can provide some peace of mind, it’s not a guarantee the car will not have a mechanical breakdown or other defects.
A third-party warranty offers flexibility. That’s why an extended warranty is a smart alternative for a used vehicle. When you purchase an extended auto warranty through CARCHEX, you can customize your terms to how long you think you’ll have the car. If you decide to sell your Mazda, warranty coverage transfers to the new owner.
