anybody heard of mazda's "no use no lose" extended warranty? Was informed at the dealership that this is a somewhat new policy. 72 months, 72000 miles, about $1900 for the one the guy was explaining. If at the end of the 6 years coverage you never used the warranty once, you get refunded everything that you paid for.

Unfortunately i have a weak mind so i forgot what exactly is covered. I need to contact them again for more information since they didn't get a copy of the simple warranty sheet for me. Bad me.

Thinking of cancelling it since I didn't plan on getting extended warranty in the first place and I can't help but feel I got suckered into it. I don't put a whole lot of miles with my commute these days anyway (daily commute is only 10 or so miles round trip), so I hope that means the engine or anything else won't suddenly sprout any problems. Off the top of anybody's head, how has your 3 held up so far over the years that you've had it?


oh ya...i just picked up my 3 touring atx today :x haven't posted anything about it yet lol

I just bought an 09 and was offered a 10 year bumper to bumper extended warranty for $1995.00. It's not a no use, no lose type of deal, but I can cancel it anytime and get the pro-rated amount back. I wish I could be more help, but I'm kind of in the same situation you are...not sure if I should keep the warranty or not. It jacked up my payments to the top of what I wanted to pay. *shrug* Let me know if you hear anything useful.

Not sure if there is anyone on this forum who does this, but on the previous couple of Ford and Toyota truck forums I belonged to there was a member that worked at a dealership and sold factory extended warranties at serious discounts because of the volume sales benefits. I'm sure he made money but just not a ton of money like dealers normally do on ext. warranties.

There are a lot of aftermarket policies that can be had much cheaper. Most can still be gotten with up to 3 years/36000 miles already on the vehicle.
