You disagree with me- there's a surprise :-\
Even if there were 2 of the 2nd services and one 1st; you're still out, as
you calculated.
Some bent logic from Mazda.

As the car's in warranty during this period I'm covered for other eventualities, so
"a car that is gradually getting older and needing more attention" not pertinent.

I can't agree with your logic.  You are assuming the 3rd year servicing would be the same as the 1st.

Look at it this way

3 year extended service plan   £679       -
(minus Year 1 @ £170.24 ) =  £509.76  - remaining in fund
(minus year 2 @ £248.88 ) =  £259.88  - remaining in fund for the 3rd year servicing
(minus year 3 @ £259.88 ) =  £0 

That makes the year 3 servicing only £11 more that for the year 2 servicing for a car that is gradually getting older and needing more attention.
 

Hardly a disaster considering the projected 12.500 miles

Maintenance / Servicing costs- extended Mazda Service Plan
« Last Post by Gel on Today at 11:57:33 am »
Just used My Mazda to book my 2nd service late May; on the app, it shows;
1st service (12.5k miles) £170.24
2nd    "       (25k)           £248.88

On the assumption in the 1st 3 years of ownership, you have 2 x£170.24 +
1 x£248.88, that'd total (not allowing for likely inflation hike for 2022 cost), £589.36

I assume prices on App include VAT.

The 3 year Extended Mazda Service Plan bought at dealer cost £679.

Have asked MAZDA HO for rationale as to why there's such a premium :(

Strange because i applied mine a year ago and still looks great and went on pillar posts and both bumpers no problem.

It works for a little while. Very messy to apply.

I bought this from Halfords and after applying neat on a rag, made the trim look like new

Troubleshooting / New battery required? Or something Else...?
« Last Post by mhulks on April 10, 2021, 08:31:31 am »
Coming out of a junction, my engine cut out and I had to push the car to the road side. No odd sounds/smells before this occurred.

I couldn't get the car started. Just a constant whirring sound and the engine management light was illuminated when the ignition was on. The breakdown folk managed to get the car started again (not jump starting it - just by repeatedly turning off and on and giving it plenty of gas) and the EML went off and I could drive the car home.

Is this hinting that a new battery is required? Or something else?

Thanks!

Hey Andrew T - I know, i'd be lying if I hadn't been thinking the same. What mileage has your vehicle done?

I've definitely had that once or twice in my 2018 2.2 sn, it's making me want to sell / PX it before the warranty runs out.
