    Another American example but I did indeed get it on our '17. It was only $1,200 to extend the bumper-to-bumper from 3 years/36k to 5 years/100k. If one of the electronic systems on this car has a problem, not to mention any of the traditional mechanical stuff, that will pay for itself easily. $1,200 isn't even that much in the scheme of car repair these days, having paid $2,000 for a evaporator core replacement on my Mustang and $1,500 for a new ABS module for our old '08 3s in the past couple years.

    Where did you buy your extended warranty? And is it a third party warranty or did you get the genuine Mazda warranty?

I didn't push the dealer very much, but they didn't seem to be willing to play ball when it came to pricing negotiation.
    Oh, they discount heavily in Canada too. If you say no, they'll keep decreasing it until it's about 50% off the first price. I still didn't take it, but I was amazed at how fast they dropped it when it was obvious I didn't care.

    Because huge profit margins. This is why I quit buying. Sure someone will come out ahead but most will not or they wouldn’t be making money

    I'd also like to know the details on that. I can easily imagine an electronics-related repair going over $1K.

    Is your warranty transferable?

The wife wanted an extended warranty on her Honda, the dealer where we bought it wanted ~$1800. I found the same genuine Honda warranty from a Honda dealer in Massachusetts for less than $1000. Bought it over the internet. I do not have an extended warranty on my CX-5, but my transmission is acting weird and I am considering it. My local dealer wants $2400 and I would like to spend less.
    It was from the dealer. In the past on my previous vehicles I purchased the extended warranties from the dealer as well and always had any work done by a dealer.

    I didn't purchase extended warranty.

    I personally feel I can trust Mazda more than my dealer (almost fell for the wheel locks / vin-etching scam).

    Direct from Mazda. Pretty sure it's transferable but honestly don't remember. We tend to keep our cars a long time and drive them a lot so I expect to own this car past 100k.

    I got the extended warranty from dealer but it's 3rd party. $1200ish extended it to 7 years/100k. I got it on my 2014 Mazda 3 too and used it to replace the heads up display. After trading in for the cx5 I got a refund for the prorated amount. I'm probably not going to get my money's worth for it but I'd just keep it just in case. Since I can't tell what's going to happen in the future, I'm just going to keep it. Too many electronics in the car, if nothing happens that'll be great, but if something happens I know I'll be covered.

    If not genuine Mazda ext warranty, I would avoid it.
    If not 50% off, I would reject it (profit margin on that is at least 50%).
    Even so, the chance that you beat the odd is small....

    Ext warranty is a financial decision.
    If you can handle the worse case scenario financially, you are betting against chances.
    Your chance of winning is very high.
    If you cannot handle the worst case scenario, it might be a good idea.

    I negotiated 100k/10yr for $1000. Since this will be my sons car in 4 Years, I wanted to make sure it would be covered. The dealer was desperate to get it off the lot so I had more negotiating room. Haven’t had to use it yet on a 2016.5, but was cheaper in the long run.

    In roughly 100 months, you can afford to replace the transmission...

    I just purchased a 2017 CX-5 GT this past weekend and opted for no extended warranty.

    I will revisit looking at Gieco's MBI just before I hit the 15 month mark. It will only cover up to 7 years and 100,000 miles and has $250 deductible, but it is pretty affordable at $130/year for me.

    Here in Sweden we get 10 year extended guarantee (3 plus 7 years) when we buy the car from Mazda. The cost is included in the price of the car, nothing extra. It is very comprehensive. The only condition is that you have to do the service at the dealers once a year and pay for it. They are trying to steal the market from Toyota, Hyundai, Kia and some BMW etc. And they seem to be succeeding.
