Being new here, has this been discussed? I did a search and I didn't see the topic.

I just found out in the last few days that Mazda's 4yr/50k bumper to bumper warranty is a thing of the past starting with the 2007 models. They are now going with the industry standard of a 3yr/36k b2b warranty. The powertrain warranty is now 5yr/60k miles as well. I find this saddening because I think Mazda has always offered a great product that's been underrated in the marketplace. Volkswagon aside, they were the last entry level automaker to offer a 4/50 b2b warranty. I'm glad I bought my MS6 when I did. At least the Mazda warranty went out with a bang on that one. ;)

That sucks for 2007 mazdaspeeds because We still do not know the reliability of these turbo charged engines....

Yeah, it's been discussed. And it does suck. The warranty was one of the main reasons why I bought my MS6. I really think Mazda is making a mistake....

I bought a 5yr / 100000 mile warranty because of the drivetrain destruction from the last mazda event with the 6 (and uncertainty of new engine) so I am not too bothered by it. Yes, I will easily put that many miles on (probably in 4 years though).

The original dealer I was considering offered the oddest warranty - lifetime as long as all maintenance was done by them. It is a huge dealership (about 10 different brands all in one place (they have a whole street of dealerships), but that just sounded too good to be true and they pissed me off anyway.

Since you get a longer power train warranty in 2007, it would seem like it sucks for the 2006s, as far as any concerns about the engine.

I've heard of that before, that's kinda common at the big dealerships actually. But yes...you HAVE TO let them do ALL maintenance.

In other words you're paying for that extended warranty and they don't even use lube.
