Mazda Canada Announces Certified Pre-Owned Program for Used Mazda Buyers

Mazda Canada, has announced the launch of the Mazda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles program in Canada.  This program will further solidify, in the mind of the customer, that the best place to buy a used Mazda is from an authorized Mazda dealer. Although other manufacturers have CPO programs, the Mazda CPO program promises to be one of the best in the business.

Vehicles up to five (5) model years or newer with 120,000 kilometres or less are eligible to be part of the Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle program. Mazda Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Vehicles will include a 7 year / 140,000 kilometre powertrain warranty, 160 point detailed inspection, 24 hour emergency roadside assistance, 30 day /3,000 kilometre exchange privilege, CarProof vehicle history report, and eligibility for some of the very low financing rates that were formerly only available for new cars.

Mazda has always made a great product and so standing behind used Mazda vehicles was an easy choice for Mazda Canada and the dealers. This new program makes sure that used Mazdas sold through the Certified Pre-Owned Program are properly inspected and their history checked.

As dealers, it has always made sense for us that a customer place their trust in us when buying a used Mazda rather than an unknown dealer or private seller. The CPO program really makes sense and we are glad to see it arrive.

While we believe that a CPO vehicle may be prices a little bit higher, the benefits far outweigh the costs.

The phenomenon – Vancouver Island’s Classifieds becoming a dominant force in Used Car Classifieds



We’ve always known that people onVancouver Island in general, and those in Victoria in particular, march to a different drummer. It’s no different when it comes to online classifieds for used cars. Elsewhere in Canada, many portals such as,,, are some of the popular places to look for a used vehicle. Here on Vancouver Island, the network and in particular are the powerhouses of classifieds.

Many car dealers have listings on the site and private sellers abound. Although there are many perceived deals to be had from private sellers, there are many perils  the consumer must be aware of since the private sellers are unregulated. Most dealers in BC are registered and regulated by the Vehicle Sales Authority and this gives the buyer a level of protection and assurance. In addition, many dealers provide CarProof information on vehicles – here at Pacific Mazda, we don’t believe anyone should buy a used vehicle without a Carproof report.

Check out some of the Vancouver Island locations of the UsedEverywhere network – remember – there is a certain safety an recourse in buying a used car from a dealer and, in particular, a franchised new car dealer that is a member of the New Car Dealers Association of BC.
