Mazda Provides Certified Used Vehicles with Benefits
“Confidence Matters. Driving Matters” is the slogan for Mazda’s certified pre-owned (CPO) program. The automaker’s certified used car program features well-maintained, late-model Mazda cars and SUVs—no more than 6 years old (2009 model year), with no more than 80,000 miles on the odometer. These CPO program vehicles blend qualities of new and used with an added level of protection, good savings for depreciation, and confidence about the real history of the vehicle. Many Mazda CPO vehicles are recent off-lease models, which means they are often lower-mileage and in better condition than non-certified used cars. They also may come from corporate fleets, which often have regular maintenance.
Mazda’s CPO program vehicles must pass a rigorous 150-point inspection that includes a test drive to ensure that all technology and driver-assistance features are in working order, as well as a thorough review of all the vehicle’s components, including engine, transmission, and brakes. The under-the-hood inspection checks steering, all fluids, battery, tires, suspension, drivetrain, frame, and underbody. A review of electronics, AC/heating, and lighting, along with an examination of the vehicle’s exterior and interior also is conducted. Mazda also makes certain that all manuals are in the vehicle and that documentation verifies that any recall services have been performed.
Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles all still have the 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. Additional peace of mind comes from a limited 12-month/12,000-mile warranty with no deductible. For added assurance, the Mazda CPO package also includes:
- AutoCheck vehicle history report that tells if the car has been damaged, involved in a collision, or has title problems
- Complimentary 24-hour roadside assistance
- Transferrable coverage under the regular warranty
- Special APRs that may be available
- Mazda’s Extended Confidence warranty
This winter season, buying a certified pre-owned Mazda car or SUV comes with a few perks. Currently, Mazda is offering a low 1.49% APR for limited loan or possibly lease terms on selected vehicles. As a special perk, Mazda also is offering a free 3-month trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio. In some regions, dealerships are offering further discounts to their CPO model prices, which provides an even greater opportunity for savings.
