A car is pretty essential if you have a family in the city: you’ll need to haul groceries for multiple people and commute to things like school, appointments and extra-curricular activities. To save on the cost of a car, many people buy a used vehicle.

But to take it a step further, you can save your family’s finances with a used Mazda from the Certified Pre-Owned program — not only are they reliable cars at affordable prices, there are various policies that will make you feel confident about whatever used vehicle you select.

Let’s take a closer look at the advantages to buying a used car from Mazda.

Certified Pre-Owned Program

Mazda’s Certified Pre-Owned Program is perhaps the best way to buy a used car, in terms of selection, warranty, and the quality of the used cars themselves.

Every car in the program has received a 160-point inspection from a factory-trained Mazda technician. The technicians who make the new cars in the factory have inspected these used cars inside and out. It’s normal for people to be wary about the shape of any used car they’re considering buying, so Mazda has made sure you don’t need to worry.

Visit the dealership and take any car for a test drive to feel the handling, suspension and the brakes for yourself.

Warranties to Ease Your Mind

Taking the car for a test drive will tell you how it drives now, but you need to know it will drive well in years down the road. Mazda has taken this into account, too.

When you buy from the Mazda Certified Pre-Owned Program, every single car comes with a comprehensive 7-year/140,000 kilometre warranty (whatever comes first). Just try finding such a long warranty on a used car elsewhere! That Mazda is willing to stand by their used cars to this extent is a testimony to the detailed inspection process each car undergoes, and which Mazda conducts themselves, as described above.

Coverage Beyond the Car

Sometimes you’re on the road and you need support because of something beyond the control of you or the manufacturer. Still, Mazda has your back.

All cars from the Mazda Certified Pre-Owned program come with a range of free services that will be handy if you’re in a pinch: free towing to nearest Mazda dealership within 100 kilometres for warranty-covered repairs; tire changes; jump starts; trip planning; lockout assistance.

Flexibility In Your Purchase

If you buy from Mazda’s Certified Pre-Owned Program and aren’t happy with the vehicle you chose for any reason at all, you can trade it for any other vehicle in the program within 30 days. Whether you’ve decided you prefer the way another car drives, or you simply want a change in style, just bring it to the same dealer and you can get a new car of your choosing. No hassles.

Mazda believes that everybody should love the car they drive. The company goes a long way towards making their cars affordable, and making you comfortable about the purchase — buying a used car from Mazda is a great way to find the vehicle that’ll take you and your family everywhere you need to go.
