According to Mazda, “Life’s too short to drive a boring family sedan” and we agree. For decades, the Mazda brand has aligned its messaging with power, versatility, and originality. In recent years they’ve introduced several new technologies to improve fuel efficiency and vehicle body and design.
Buying a Mazda vehicle can be an exciting experience and within the first years of purchase, cars typically don’t require any major repairs outside keeping the car well-maintained with regular oil changes and tune ups. Yet, it’s inevitable that repairs will be necessary at some point down the road. Our goal is to make sure you’re protected when this time comes.
Typical Mazda manufacturer warranties last for 3-years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first, for a new-vehicle limited warranty or 5 years and 60,000 miles for a powertrain warranty. Anytime you purchase a vehicle, make sure you understand all that’s included under your warranty. While many parts may be covered, not all warranties offer the same protection.
If your warranty has expired or is about to expire, you’ll want to make sure you have a plan to take care of any repairs in the future. A vehicle service contract allows drivers an opportunity for affordable coverage customized to fit their needs. Don’t let your coverage lapse and face the chance of costly repairs.
Average Repair Costs for Mazda Vehicles
A Mazda certified pre-owned warranty from a private owner may not cover a majority of the repair estimates listed below. Whether you purchase your vehicle from a dealership or another party, carefully review the included manufacturer warranty to know the coverage details and how long it lasts.
The chart lists the type of repairs that are common with Mazda vehicles and the approximate costs for repair. There are several factors that will determine the exact cost, such as your car’s model, age, mileage, and where the work is being performed, but you can get a general estimate.
As you can see, one repair can easily cost several hundred dollars, a significant financial hit, especially when unexpected. It’s not the only the replacement cost which causes stress and inconvenience. It’s also the labor cost, the waiting period sans vehicle, the potential of having to take time off work to take your vehicle in, and the inconveniences only continue to add up.
|Alternator replacement||$232 to $839|
|AC compressor replacement||$378 to $1,375|
|Head gasket(s) replacement||$686 to $3,122|
|Clutch replacement||$492 to $2,047|
