The 2017 Mazda 3 was chosen as a 10Best winner by Car and Driver due to the combination of style, value, and dynamics for the compact car. Its styling has evolved over the past decade and half to make room for a more technologically advanced model consumers want.
Mazda released its SkyActiv technology and a new, 6-speed transmission for its Mazda 3 2012 model year. What began as a more average-looking, compact body style is now on its third generation of improvements and refinement. Mazda 3 continues to be a vehicle that’s fun to drive with consistently high marks in safety and reliability at a price point drivers desire.
The Mazda 3 warranty comes with a standard 3-year, 36,000-mile basic plan or drivers can choose the 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty based on their driving needs. The basic warranty is limited in its coverage, especially if you consider your vehicle an investment to last several years.
When your original manufacturer warranty expires, how you will pay for vehicle repair coverage? Paying out of pocket can be costly. Main automotive parts could mean hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in unexpected expenses. Even if the part itself is more affordable, you have to consider the cost for labor, towing, and alternative transportation methods for when you’re without your vehicle.
A vehicle service contract is set up to make the inevitability of a repair breakdown less costly and less stressful. There are different policies to choose from and customize to fit your needs. It includes repair costs, including labor fees. Each policy also comes with benefits, such as 24/7 roadside assistance, towing services, and rental car reimbursement.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
