2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Warranty

Mazda offers warranty coverage on all of its cars, including a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. Mazda also offers a standard five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Forbes praises: "The track record of Miatas is excellent. These have been reliable cars, and there's no reason to think they won't continue to be." Newsday similarly comments, "Mazda had taken the European concept of a roadster and had added two typically Japanese ingredients: affordability and, more important, reliability." The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tops off the praise, saying, "Now in its 18th year, the MX-5 Miata delivers high quality and reliability."
