08 as is, no warranty, none Mazda dealer???

Low mileage 08. Batt. needed a boost to start it. So did the 07 I looked at. 3 previous batt/charging checks on carfax.

Door sticker indicates, "as is", does not mention "balance of factory warranty" like their 08 ford products. Sounds fishy, doesn't it? I will call mazda service to confirm the factory warr. on monday.

When I purchased my car back in 04, the warranty was transferable. Did Mazda change that recently? How many miles are on both cars?

When I bought my 08 the dealer said as is no warranty and then I found out later is still had mazda factory warranty. Might just want to call mazda and see.

It was built in 4/08, sold on 8/08, on the market again in for the past 3 months.

Dealers are all shady, and they work the hustle. Hustle to get you to sign the loan and out the door. I need time to research the loan and warranty. 12k miles on the car, 3 trips to Mazda service for brake inspection and charging within a 4 or 5k mile range.

I will call tomorrow.

I think I'd avoid that particular car, sounds like they dumped it because of a problem that Mazda couldn't diagnose.

It may be something simple, or it could be something fairly complex.

Carfax shows that dealer retitled it after 600 miles. Now tht could be a lemon deal or bad financing. And they show it as one owner>

Mazda's warranty is transferrable. The warranty on my '08 was transferred to me with relative ease.
