Mazda Australia launches unlimited capped-price servicing program - CarAdvice

Mazda Australia launches unlimited capped-price servicing program - CarAdvice | AMAN 2014 | Scoop.it
Motoring
Mazda Australia launches unlimited capped-price servicing program
CarAdvice
Mazda Australia will introduce a flexible capped-price servicing program from next month that lasts the life of its vehicles.
Nicolene Barnard's insight:

Why is Mazda doing this?  Coz they have no choice.  Smart buyers have figured out that in other countries there's 12 months in between services.  So the annoucement does loose quite some of its effect... Considering that it will mean that Mazda (or its service dealers) loose servicing income, I expect they'll have something else up their sleeve to make up for what they loose?  Will this move result in a significant increase of Mazda 3 sales?
