A Fantastic Certified Pre-Owned Mazda Is Waiting for You

Finding a vehicle that you will love for many years to come is not always easy; you have so many different models available to you that it can be tough to narrow down all of your options. That is why it is so helpful to have a knowledgeable person by your side to help you explore the various cars, trucks, and SUVs out there so that you find exactly what you are looking for. If you are interested in a Mazda, but you are having a difficult time choosing between a new or used model, then a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Mazda may be the perfect pick.

While “Certified Pre-Owned” might sound like it is just a fancy term for “used,” it is actually a very different type of vehicle that has a lot to offer. In order for a vehicle to be sold under the Mazda CPO program, it has to meet the highest standards that include passing an extensive inspection; plus, you will only find these vehicles at a licensed dealership like DePaula Mazda. Best of all, every Mazda CPO vehicle comes with fantastic warranty coverage to protect your investment in your next car, truck, or SUV.

What Is a CPO Vehicle?

When you see the terms “used” and “pre-owned” at a dealership, they typically mean the same thing; saying “pre-owned” simply sounds a bit nicer. The term “Certified Pre-Owned,” however, is a separate option that cannot be used interchangeably with the other two. This is part of why you will not find CPO models at every dealership––there are plenty of dealers out there that offer great used models, but they are not licensed by a manufacturer to sell CPO vehicles.

That is one of the most important distinctions that a CPO vehicle has: the original manufacturer is involved in overseeing which dealerships can offer CPO models and what standards they have to meet. In this case, Mazda has set the rules for what conditions a vehicle has to meet in order for a dealership to offer it as a CPO vehicle. This ensures that every Mazda CPO model is in the best condition possible and will treat you well for many years to come. The biggest advantage that these vehicles offer is a combination of perks: you pay less than with a comparable new vehicle while enjoying the peace of mind you do not often find with a used model.

What Makes a CPO Mazda Different?

You will find certain similarities between CPO models from different manufacturers: they always have to meet certain standards and come with a number of benefits that you will not find on other used models. It is important to note, however, that each manufacturer sets its own standards and policies for its CPO vehicles, so not every CPO model across different brands is exactly the same. That being said, the Mazda CPO program is one of the best out there, with fantastic rules on what is allowed to be offered and the kind of protection provided with one of these vehicles. In other words: you get to enjoy a fantastic combination of affordability and reliability––exactly what you would expect from a Mazda.

Mazda CPO Warranty Protection

Every Mazda CPO vehicle comes with a pair of warranties provided by the manufacturer, which is something you are not going to find on other used models. There are some dealerships that offer their own warranty protection on their used cars, which is great, but it often has strict limitations on how you can have your vehicle serviced under the warranty.

With protection from Mazda, you have much more freedom in where you can take your vehicle for maintenance or repairs and have it covered by your warranty. Every Mazda CPO comes with:

  • 12-month/12,000-mile CPO Vehicle Limited Warranty
  • 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty

This kind of warranty protection is fantastic, and it should be noted that the vehicle limited warranty protection only begins after any remaining portion of the original 3-year/36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty from Mazda. In other words, if you choose a CPO model that is two years old and has 20,000 miles on it, then it will have one year/16,000 miles of the original New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and then another year/12,000 miles of additional CPO vehicle coverage. If there is no time left on the original warranty, then the CPO vehicle protection begins when you buy it, so no matter what, you get fantastic coverage.

The powertrain warranty is one of the best in the industry––most other companies offer less time or fewer miles on the engine. This covers a wide range of parts and components on the engine, including the cylinder block, turbocharger (if applicable), flywheel, and much more. With this warranty protection, any repairs or replacements you need for covered parts can be handled at any Mazda dealership with zero deductible. You never have to worry about out-of-pocket costs when you have issues with parts covered by these warranties––plus, all Mazda CPO benefits are fully transferable if you decide to sell your vehicle and it still has coverage.

The Mazda CPO Inspection

The fantastic warranty coverage is not the only thing that gives you unparalleled peace of mind on your purchase of a Mazda CPO model. Every vehicle has to pass a rigorous 160-point inspection before it can be certified and offered to you. This inspection must be carried out by a factory-trained Mazda technician and includes a wide range of areas such as the A/C and heating system, the condition of the interior, and the functionality of the brakes. The transmission and engine are inspected to ensure they work well and are in great shape, while the condition of the exterior is also checked out to look for any damage to the windshield or body of the vehicle.

In addition to this inspection, every Mazda CPO vehicle comes with a full AutoCheck vehicle history report. This gives you a sense of what the vehicle has been through with a previous owner in order to ensure it is in great shape and that there is nothing unexpected that might pop up. Best of all, along with this vehicle history report you also get three-year Buyback Protection from Experian, so you can rest easy knowing you have a great vehicle with fantastic warranty coverage and long-term protection for your purchase.

The Right Mazda CPO Model is Ready for You

As you can see, a Mazda CPO has a lot to offer and provides you with a car-buying option that you cannot find with other models. While there is something to be said for the feel of a brand-new car, and the low prices of many used models can be attractive, a CPO vehicle gives you a perfect middle-ground between these two options. You will pay less for a CPO Mazda than a comparable new model while also getting warranty protection and peace of mind that does not typically come with other pre-owned vehicles. And since you can only find these models at a Mazda dealership, you know that you will have someone there to help you choose the perfect vehicle with everything you need.
