The Mazda CX-5 is the brand’s compact crossover, which was first introduced in 2012. Now recently entering its second generation, the 2017 CX-5 comes equipped with Mazda’s Skyactiv technology and offers the first Mazda diesel sold in North America.
U.S. News & World Report has listed it in the number two spot with an 8.7/10 rating in its class. And, the five-seat SUV is noted for its quality performance, roomy and well-designed interior, in addition to a smooth ride. Drivers can choose between the basic manufacturer warranty good for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Or, they can opt for the 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty for their vehicle coverage.
Most likely your vehicle is going to last beyond a 3- or 5-year window of time, which means when your original Mazda warranty expires, your coverage will no longer be valid. Repairs for your CX-5 could total at least a few hundred dollars, if not more. Being solely responsible for costs can quickly disrupt a monthly budget and cause financial strain.
Since it’s important to have a reliable source of transportation, protect your coverage with a vehicle service contract. This kind of policy works after your original warranty has expired. It provides coverage for main vehicle components, such as the transmission, engine, and air-conditioning unit, among others. You can have the plan customized to better fit your needs and feel secure that you have coverage in place when a breakdown occurs.
Additionally, you will have access to 24/7 roadside assistance, free towing, and reimbursement for a rental car, if necessary, while your car is in the shop. The policy is designed to alleviate the cost and stress from the inevitability of vehicle repairs.

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.
