Overview

Mazda offers a generous certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty with two components. There's a 1-year or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty that starts from the day you buy your certified vehicle (or the day the original warranty runs out), along with a 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty from the original sale date. Mazda's warranty also boasts no deductible, and it's fully transferable to the next owner.

What We Like

Full transferability; long powertrain coverage; no deductible; additional bumper-to-bumper warranty

What We Don't

Powertrain warranty starts from original sale date; bumper-to-bumper coverage is nice but average

Program Specifics

Mazda offers an excellent certified pre-owned warranty program that checks nearly all our boxes. There's a good warranty, full transferability, no deductible and several other enticing benefits.

The most important benefit offered by Mazda's CPO program is the warranty. Although we don't love that it starts on the original sale date (which can be confusing to someone who buys the car used), it offers an excellent 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection. That's not bad for a CPO warranty. The program also touts a 1-year or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, which starts as soon as the original bumper-to-bumper warranty ends. If there's no bumper-to-bumper warranty left, it instead begins on the day you buy your certified pre-owned car.

Mazda's program offers a few other alluring benefits. There's no deductible for repairs, which means you won't have to pay a penny if your car breaks down and you need to fix it. The warranty is fully transferable to the next owner, which may enhance your resale value if you decide to sell before the warranty expires. And Mazda occasionally offers special financing rates on CPO cars, which means that certified Mazda models often tout more attractive deals than traditional used cars.

We're impressed with Mazda's certified pre-owned plan, and we suggest you consider a CPO Mazda if you're interested in one of the brand's used cars.
