Mazda Extended Protection Plan

Is there anyway to obtain an estimate for a extended warranty plan without resorting to contacting the dealer? I'm considering purchasing an '10 Mazda3 and would like to estimate beforehand.

Re: Mazda Extended Protection Plan

not with out going to a 3rd party. I just bought my 2010 3 and the cheapest plan was $2k for 5 yrs and 150K miles. I passed. $2k is alot of repair bills.

Re: Mazda Extended Protection Plan

I'm just about to purchase a 2010 Mazda3 and I was looking into the Extended Warranty as well.

Talked to the salesman who just kind of passed me to the finance/repair guys "who will tell you about it when they close the paperwork".

Sounds like he doesn't know. So I started researching the web. Led me to this forum. But it looks like you can buy the MEPP from ANY Mazda dealer and they all can price them as they see fit...

Well since the 2010 will come with the 3yr/36,000 it looks as though there is some time to shop for this. Even the Mazda website says the MEPP is the way to go.

So I think to the original poster, do some research on the web, you can purchase this from ANY Mazda dealer in the US and they will each quote you a different price.

I think, like almost everything else about car buying, the bottom price is negotiable, and not a hard and fast selling price.

PS: I've been a Ford-guy forever, this is about to be my first Mazda...

Re: Mazda Extended Protection Plan


Just a quick update... got to see the finance guy, asked about Service Contract, and he told me about their offering: ZURICH... gave me a pamphlet.. so I called him up today and said do you not offer/sell the MEPP??

He said, yeah but it's about double the cost of the Zurich plan, and whenever I put the two side by side, maybe about 1 person took the more expensive Mazda plan...

Well you know I had a bad experience in the past with a 3rd party (non-manufacturer) extended warranty... and I really don't like the thought of going with "Zurich"...

So I just might start calling around to Mazda dealers and tell them I just bought a 3 s Hatch and I want to buy an MEPP program ~only~... and see who will quote me prices.

I did notice that most dealers won't post prices for it on the internet.

The local dealer said he WOULD sell me the MEPP only it's about twice as much as Zurich...

Now I'm debating if it's even worth purchasing.

I purchased a six-year extended service plan with my last car (Mercury) and had ONE repair after the warranty period, so basically just gave away my money to Ford...

I just don't like the thought of running around with a "Zurich Insurance" extended warranty, frankly...

Re: Mazda Extended Protection Plan

Zurich bought AIG and also is the parent of Farmer's Insurance Group.. fyi


they aren't a wimpy little company.. although a quick look I didn't see info on their auto insurance, but I didn't search too much.

Is that a dealer warranty or a Mazda warranty?
