2016 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD w/Tech Pkg
- Plano, Texas, USA
Yes Mazda does offer its own extended warranty Mazda Extended Confidence with several different levels of coverages. It definitely NOT added 6 years and 54K miles like PaulZooms thought, as we have powertrain warranty which covers the powertrain for 5 years or 60K miles. And even the best Total Confidence extended warranty by Mazda, it's still not a bumper-to-bumper warranty like the 3/36 new car warranty. That's why I didn't get it at the time and go for self-insured way.MEC only goes out to 100k miles. 3 years, for me. Not worth the savings over a 150k mile plan unless its dirt cheap, especially considering that by 150k, much more likely to have something die that "pays for the plan".When I bought my 16.5 2.75 years ago, I got a Mazda Extended Confidence (MEC) extended warranty. It added 6 years and 54k miles to to the 3/36 it came with. ($0 deductible)
Many dealers sell more profitable 3rd party warranties and pretend Mazda doesnt offer their own extensions.
If I want an extended warranty, I'd go for one backed by the manufacture. Third party extended warranty could worth nothing if the company went under. It has happened a couple of times before.
