As your local Mazda dealership, we try to keep all of our customers up to date on all the latest news. Often this is advice on new or upcoming Mazda cars and tips to keep your car working as intended by Mazda in all driving and weather conditions. This article is a little different; we will be taking at some recent changes that Mazda has made to their car warranties.
The 3 Year Manufacturers Warranty
It was once standard here in Australia and in other parts of the world for car manufacturers to offer a three year warranty to their customers. Mazda was no different in this regard, but things have started to change. Many car manufacturers globally offer a longer warranty period, and this is often five years.
The 5 Year Manufacturers Warranty
Mazda is the latest car manufacturer to increase their warranty period from three to five years. From now on, all brand new Mazda vehicles sold here in Australia will have a five year unlimited kilometre warranty applied to their purchase as standard. This brings Mazda into line with other manufacturers, such as; Skoda, Renault, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Holden, Citroen, and Peugeot.
The Pressures of Competition
A case could be made for the implementation of this new Mazda warranty policy to stay competitive. The Australian car market is extremely buoyant at this time, and there is plenty of competition in every single segment for vital sales. However, this move to a longer warranty period has been developing globally over the last few years. Itís fair to say that modern cars are typically far better made than cars from even a decade ago. They are far safer and more reliable on average than their predecessors and as such it seems fair for car manufacturers to increase the warranty period. As well as an inducement to buy this also proves to the customer that the manufacturer has real confidence in their cars.
The Mazda Market Share
In Australia, Mazda is a market leader, and they are the second most popular car manufacturer here. This is driven by the stellar reputation for quality and reliability and the fair pricing structure across the entire range. This move to a five year warranty will surely build even more confidence in the brand and perhaps allow Mazda to compete with Toyota for pole position.
