• Mazda Warranty Coverage Options

    The Mazda warranty options are many, and selecting the best Mazda factory warranty for your vehicle can be a difficult decision when you’re planning on buying a car. To complicate the issue, there are also extended Mazda warranty plans that offer additional coverage beyond the basic warranty options. These are typically reserved for unique vehicles or for customers that require additional coverage in order to have peace of mind. Read on for an overview of some of Mazda’s warranty coverage plans for your new Mazda made vehicle.

    Standard Bumper to Bumper Warranty

    The basic Mazda warranty provides “bumper to bumper” coverage, meaning that virtually all of the car is covered. The only parts of the vehicle that will not be covered by the warranty in this case are those that typically wear out and break down naturally over time and as you drive the car. Parts like the oil filter and the brake pads need to be replaced regularly in every car, so Mazda does not cover the costs associated with these components, even in their most comprehensive coverage plan.

    Otherwise, the bumper to bumper warranty covers the costs of repairing or replacing all of the components of your Mazda vehicle. The terms of this warranty agreement are for 3 years or for 36,000 driven miles, whichever comes around first.

    Drivetrain Limited Warranty

    Mazda offers a warranty plan that provides slightly less coverage but for an additional year and 12,000 miles of driving. The most common warranty option that customers choose when purchasing a new Mazda car is the drivetrain limited warranty. This covers many of the major components of the vehicle, including the engine, transmission, transmission computer system, drive axle and more. Certain other components that are covered by the bumper to bumper guarantee are not covered under this warranty option, however.; the drivetrain option is good for 4 years or 48,000 miles of driving, meaning that it will last longer than the more comprehensive plan.

    Roadside Assistance Plan

    Mazda’s roadside assistance plan provides 24 hour per day, 7 day per week coverage of any incidents that may occur with your vehicle that leave you stranded on the side of the road. If this should occur and you are covered by this particular warranty plan, you can simply call up your Mazda warranty provider and have them come out to help repair your vehicle at any time. The Mazda roadside assistance plan is good for 3 years or for 36,000 driven miles, whichever comes around first.

    There are also customizable warranty plans that you can purchase for your new Mazda vehicle. If you buy a used Mazda, it may still retain some of the warranty coverage that it came with initially, depending on how old the car is and how many miles are on it. If you have any additional questions about Mazda warranties, consult with a representative at your local Mazda car dealership.
