Why a Mazda Extended Warranty Is Worth the Cost

You probably purchased your Mazda vehicle due to factors like reliability and affordability. If these things are important to you, you chose correctly. Over the past five years, Mazda has had one of the highest reliability ratings of any car manufacturer and one of the lowest costs of ownership. In 2019, Mazda ranked third in dependability among car manufacturers, just after Lexus and Toyota, according to Consumer Reports. The 2019 Mazda CX-3 has also won the Kelley Blue Book award for “Best Subcompact SUV/Crossover 5-Year Cost to Own” for its overall cost to buy and maintain.

But even reliable cars will require repairs, and if the factory warranty on your Mazda has expired, an extended warranty can help you avoid expensive repair costs. A low monthly payment can easily fit into your budget, but a $3,500 transmission replacement on a six-year-old vehicle may be a different story.

So, if you plan on keeping your Mazda beyond the life of the factory warranty, an extended warranty is a good choice. New Mazdas come with a factory warranty included in the price of the vehicle. This includes:

  • A three-year/36,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty that covers defects in materials and workmanship on any part original to the car.
  • A five-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty that covers the engine, transmission, and front and rear drive systems.

For your repairs to be covered, your chosen repair facility must follow the recommended Mazda maintenance schedule and use certified Mazda parts. While it’s recommended that you visit a Mazda dealership for repairs, it is not required under the Mazda warranty.

Determining Your Mazda Extended Warranty Cost

Your Mazda extended warranty cost partially depends on the amount of coverage you get. You can purchase a vehicle service contract from the automaker, but it can be an expensive addition to your car’s monthly financing and also restricts where you can take your car for covered repairs.

Extended warranties from the manufacturer typically cost between $1,000 and $1,500, but a contract can cost much more depending on your vehicle’s mileage, age, and model.

Mazda currently offers extended warranties through its Extended Confidence program. These are optional plans that cover you after your Mazda factory warranty or Mazda Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) warranty expires.

Mazda’s extended warranty plans include:

  • Powertrain Confidence—This plan covers the powertrain, which includes the engine, transmission, and drive axle.
  • Total Confidence—This plan includes bumper-to-bumper coverage similar to the new vehicle plan.

The cost of the plan depends on the length and type of coverage you choose. Deductibles are either $0 or $100. They do not cover routine maintenance or wear-and-tear parts.

Both plans are transferable and come with 24/7 roadside assistance. Because you must take your vehicle to the dealership for repairs, work is guaranteed to be done by Mazda factory-trained technicians using genuine Mazda parts.

Mazda’s Extended Confidence warranty program is available for purchase at any Mazda dealership. Warranties from a dealership or manufacturer, however, may not offer the same flexibility in price and coverage. You are limited to two coverage tiers and no competing prices.

Can You Afford Your Mazda Repairs?

If your Mazda factory warranty has expired, then you’ll be responsible for paying out of pocket to cover the cost of repairing your vehicle. When those timely and unexpected repairs come up, will you be able to afford the bill? Here are some expenses commonly reported by Mazda drivers, according to data from RepairPal:

Part Replacement Price 
Clutch $465–$1,994
Head Gasket $691–$3,263
Front Strut/Shock Absorber $105–$836
Fuel Level Sending Unit $801–$1,157
AC Condenser $307-$516
Oxygen Sensor $271–$402
EGR Valve $249–$328

If the answer is no, then you’re not alone. Extended car warranties can provide peace of mind once a manufacturer’s warranty runs out. It’s much easier to budget for a low monthly payment than it is to fork out $3,200 for an unexpected repair.

Third-Party Warranty from CARCHEX

Another option is to purchase a third-party extended auto warranty from CARCHEX. The price of an extended warranty from CARCHEX depends on the amount of coverage you choose, the length of the contract, details on your specific vehicle, and other factors.

Because CARCHEX uses its buying power to find competitive coverage options from warranty companies, you don’t have to settle for an expensive plan. Providers within our marketplace will compete for your business, which means you’ll get the coverage you want at the best Mazda extended warranty cost around.

Some providers offer additional protection at an extra cost, such as for seals and gaskets, high-tech components, and hybrid components, so you can get as close as possible to your factory warranty coverage for less.

CARCHEX offers flexible extended warranties at an affordable price. Our Extended Vehicle Protection Plans include:

  • Affordable payment plans that can comfortably fit into any budget
  • Consultative customer service, so you don’t have to worry about haggling or high markups
  • Your choice of repair facility, so you can stay with the mechanic you trust most
  • A No-Haggle, Low-Price, Everyday GuaranteeTM and a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee to ensure that you’re completely satisfied with your used car warranty
  • $0 deductible on select plans

Here’s a quick look at the five levels of Vehicle Protection Plan offered by CARCHEX. We offer many protection plans within each coverage level.
