You never want to jump into a big purchase without having all the facts. If you’re thinking about buying a new or pre-owned Mazda, be sure to first answer these five questions before you sign on the dotted line. 

1. What Do I Need?  

Before you agree to buying a pre-owned Mazda, start by considering your own priorities. Are you looking for a powerful engine with great acceleration? Will your pre-owned Mazda need to fit a bunch of people? Do you want it to come with advanced safety features?

Make a list of the must-have features and keep it handy while you look at potential models. 

2. What Do I Want?  

Once you’ve considered your must-have amenities, you can move onto features you’d like to have in your pre-owned Mazda. Perhaps you want your car to have a touchscreen for the infotainment system, leather seats, or all-wheel drive. These are things that won’t be dealbreakers if they’re not available.   

3. How Does it Drive?  

The next thing to do is to get behind the wheel of any vehicles that pique your interest. All Mazda vehicles offer fantastic handling, but it’s important that you experience it for yourself.

To get the most out of your test drive, try to simulate your typical drive, which may include going on the highway or navigating crowded streets.   

4. Should I Finance My Purchase?  

Contrary to popular belief, you do have the option to finance a pre-owned Mazda. This could be a great decision, as it allows you to borrow the money you need and then make monthly payments.   

5. Is There Any Warranty Coverage?  

In addition to buying a pre-owned Mazda, you should also think about investing in a certified pre-owned model. These vehicles are thoroughly inspected and come with two warranties: a 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty and a seven-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty.
