How Mazda’s Unlimited Mileage Warranty WorksBlog Feb 27th , 2018
One of the most common questions that we hear about our warranty is: “How does it work if it’s unlimited mileage?” With that in mind, because a program like this is so unheard of, it’s easy to understand how questions may arise. Here at Fredericton Mazda, our goal is to ensure that everything we do as a brand and as a dealership is clear for our customers. No, an unlimited mileage warranty isn’t too good to be true. Yes, it’s a great value for vehicle owners.
Do I Have to Buy it?
No, the Mazda unlimited mileage warranty comes standard on all new Mazda models from 2015 onward. We make cars that are designed to be driven, and that’s just how we approach warranties. As the video below demonstrates, it’s just plain silly to expect vehicle owners to avoid driving their vehicles for the sake of maintaining their warranty.
That’s why you don’t have to stop driving just to feel secure. Focus your energy on your next adventure and building memories worth keeping. With the unlimited mileage warranty, you’re covered where it matters. Just for choosing Mazda.
With new Mazda models, you get unlimited mileage in each of these warranty categories:
- 3-YEAR new vehicle warranty
- 3-YEAR roadside assistance
- 5-YEAR powertrain warranty
- 7-YEAR anti-perforation warranty
Is It Transferable?
Yes! If you trade-in, trade up, or find your next Mazda vehicle sooner rather than later, your used vehicle’s new owner is able to resume the remainder of its unlimited mileage warranty. The same categories above are covered, just as if they had purchased the vehicle new.
Not only does the warranty transfer allow for second owners to feel safe, but having an available warranty increases your vehicle’s resale value. All you need to do is submit the “Subsequent Ownership Notification” in the Warranty Information Booklet that came with your Mazda. More information on this process can be found on our warranty page. If you’re not sure about this form or would like to trade-in your vehicle here with us, don’t hesitate to reach out!
Why is Unlimited Mileage Such a Big Deal?
Programs like this have been unheard of in the automotive industry. This is the first-of-its-kind warranty around*. Often, car manufacturers will warranty their cars for as long as they’re confident they can meet a certain KM point on the odometer, and then drop support. While there are indeed many great cars out there in the world, you should feel confident that they can take what life throws at them. That’s why we’re proud to say that we believe in our vehicles and want you to drive them.
When you see other manufacturers advertising a 3-year or 60,000 km warranty, know that it’s whatever comes first. If you hit 60,000 km in the first year of ownership, you’re out of coverage. At Fredericton Mazda, we know that regular road trips to visit the Grandparents in Truro or the Miramichi can rack up quickly. Don’t fret: you can travel from the Fredericton area without stress, because you’re able to drive as much as you want and as far as you want. These trips won’t make your warranty expire, they’ll simply be safe and enjoyable because you’re in a new Mazda car or SUV.
The Mazda unlimited mileage warranty is just one of the many reasons that we love our brand. This coverage is also one of the reasons why Mazda continues to win awards for best vehicles and value across the automotive industry. Ready to try a Mazda for yourself?
