How long is a Mazda warranty? Mazda USA factory warranty is 3 years or 36,000 miles (whichever occurs first) from the original purchase of the first owner.
This bumper-to-bumper factory warranty stays with the vehicle and transfers between owners until the time and mileage threshold is reached.
When the Mazda bumper-to-bumper warranty expires the engine warranty continues for another 2 years or 24,000 miles, totaling 5 years or 60,000 miles of repair coverage for the engine on all Mazdas except one.
The RX8 Rotary Engine warranty was extended to 8 years or 100,000 miles and includes the rotary housing and internal components.
Mazda offers two factory warranty options for owners who want to buy an extended warranty through the Mazda Extended Confidence plan.
What does the Mazda Extended Warranty cover?
Total Confidence is Mazda’s best warranty extension.
It covers the engine, transmission, steering, cooling, heating, axles, shocks, electronics, TV screens, power seats, door locks, sunroof, and advanced tech.
Almost all components are covered except maintenance and wear items such as brake pads and soft trim. View Section E in the Sample Plan below for a full list of what is not covered.
Option 2 Powertrain Confidence is a plan for a minimalist.
It covers the engine and transmission and nothing more. Many repairs will fall outside of the realm of this coverage.
Total Confidence is a much better plan, and worth the extra cost considering nearly every malfunction will be covered instead of nearly none.
How much is the repair copay?
Mazda USA offers two options of deductible copay: $100 and $0.
The $100 option is an attractive offer because the upfront cost is lower. However, the $0 option only costs $400 more to buy, and every small repair can be claimed.
Therefore, the F&I Tools Review finds the $0 deductible Mazda Total Confidence Extended Warranty the best bang for the buck!
How much does the Mazda Total Confidence Extended Warranty cost?
Retail Market Value 6 Years 100,000 Miles $0 Deductible: $3750 $100 Deductible: $3350
Prices vary by location, start date, mileage, model, and usage. Visit your local dealer for a VIN-specific quote.
Where can I buy the Mazda Extended Confidence Warranty? F&I Tools recommends buying the Mazda extended warranty from the Finance Department at the same dealership you plan to return to for repairs.
You are not required to return to the selling dealer for repairs, but keeping all transactions at one location creates a greater incentive for the dealer to comply with the customer satisfaction goals monitored by the manufacturer.
Is my Mazda Extended Warranty transferable? Yes!
You can transfer your warranty to the next owner when you sell your vehicle by providing a written request to Mazda and paying the applicable fee listed on your contract.
View Section K in the Sample Plan above for exact details.
Where will repairs be done? Repairs are completed by Mazda certified technicians using genuine brand parts at any Mazda dealership nationwide.
The F&I Tools Review found that owners returning to their original dealer had the highest satisfaction scores.
