Mazda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles offer Confidence, like this 2013 Mazda2

When it comes to purchasing a used vehicle, sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. You’ve heard the horror stories – if you buy a car that has hidden water damage from a flood or structural damage after an accident, an unreliable seller with no guarantees means you could be out of luck. That’s exactly why we’ve created the Mazda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program. Our thorough inspections, history reports, and warranty mean you can take home a used car with complete confidence.

Mazda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles have to be less than six years old and have been driven fewer than 80,000 miles. According to Edmunds.com, Pre-Owned benefits include:

  • 150-point detailed inspection.
  • 3-Year AutoCheck Buyback Protection.
  • 7-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain warranty from the original in-service date.
  • Each Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a 12-Month/12,000-Mile Additional Limited Warranty with no deductible on covered components, which begins when the factory warranty ends. If it’s out of warranty, the 12-Month/12,000-Mile Limited Warranty begins on the certified retail date.
  • No deductible.
  • AutoCheck® Vehicle History Report.
  • 24-hour roadside assistance.
  • Warranty coverage is transferable.
  • Transferable benefits.
  • Special APR Programs.
  • Available Mazda Extended Confidence Coverage (CPO Wraps).

Mazda July Sales Best in 21 Years

U.S. Mazda July sales are up an impressive 17.1 percent year-over-year, with 29,238 units sold across the United States. So far in 2014 Mazda has sold 185,669 units, which is an overall increase of 9.3 percent for the year.

“Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5 continue to show strong gains month after month as more and more customers realize the benefits of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY,” said Ron Stettner, vice president of sales, MNAO. “Mazda hasn’t sold this many vehicles in the month of July since 1993. A big part of that success is building the brand and showing customers that buying a Mazda isn’t buying an economy car on discount, it is buying a near-premium experience for a great value.”

The Mazda3 has always been the brand’s volume leader, and July is no exception. 9,381 units sold, which is a 1.6 percent year-over-year increase.
