Twin Turbochargers And Electric Supercharger: Mazda’s Latest Patent

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 18th, 2017 at 8:58 PM

As the saying goes in Alice In Wonderland, “Curiouser and curiouser,” which aptly describes our reaction to news of Mazda’s latest patent filing.  The patent is for a triple-charged engine.  Is this another engine breakthrough for Mazda?  What future plans does Mazda have in store utilizing a twin engine configuration with an electric supercharger?  CardinaleWay Mazda Corona, your favorite Corona dealership, is just as intrigued as everyone else. we can hardly wait to see what Mazda has up its sleeve!

How A Triple-Charged Engine Works

Mazda’s design for a triple-charged engine is comprised of twin turbocharged engines with an electric supercharger.  In theory, this triple combination engine system works when the electric supercharger kickstarts the engine.  In response, this revs up the dual turbochargers for a significant burst of horsepower.  Typically, you would envision a triple-charged engine in a rear-wheel drive vehicle.

The Million Dollar Question

A patent for the triple-charged engine does not necessarily mean that Mazda has a concept car on the drawing board to accommodate the new engine design. However, it begs the million dollar question circulating in the auto industry… does Mazda plan to utilize this triple-charged engine in the near future?  It’s quite possible that this type of triple-charged engine would be well-suited for an RX-8 successor.

Mazda Is A Leader In Cutting-Edge Automotive Technology

We’re proud to stand behind the Mazda brand, a leader in cutting-edge automotive technology.  Stay tuned for more developments on the status of Mazda’s patent for a triple-charged engine.

CardinaleWay Mazda Corona Suggests Cleaning Your Car’s Engine

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 11th, 2017 at 8:55 PM

Add cleaning your vehicle’s engine to your list of auto maintenance.  It sounds like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be.  Cleaning under the hood is important to help keep your engine running cooler.  It’s also the perfect opportunity to check all your vehicle’s fluid levels and inspect hoses and belts. CardinaleWay Mazda Corona, your favorite Corona dealership, recommends cleaning your engine compartment at least once or twice a year.  That’s because debris and grime accumulates under the hood of your vehicle and can be detrimental to parts of your engine, battery and electrical wiring.  For instance, a buildup of grime can lead to corrosion which is  particularly harmful to your vehicle’s battery.

What You Need To Know About Cleaning Under The Hood

There are three very critical pieces of information you should know before you begin cleaning your vehicle’s engine compartment.  First, make sure the engine is cold.  Secondly, never use a hose or power washer to spray water under your hood.  Water can damage electrical wiring and components.  Lastly, refrain from using abrasive cleaning solvents which can also be harmful.

Steps To Take To Clean Your Vehicle’s Engine Compartment

Start by removing any loose debris that you see under the hood.  You can use a small broom or even a leaf blower to remove the debris.  Next, use soft cloths or microfiber towels moistened with a mild cleaning solution.  You can even use Dawn dishwashing detergent mixed with water.  Wipe down all the surfaces in the engine compartment.  Inspect the battery for signs of corrosion, removing the battery caps as well.  Use a wire brush or soft cloth to remove any corrosion.  Check all the fluid levels and inspect belts and hoses for any signs of cracks, leakage or slippage.  Also check the wiring and hoses for any signs of rodent tampering.  Tiny critters love to sharpen their teeth on tasty wiring.

The Impact of The New Toyota-Mazda Plant in the U.S.

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 24th, 2017 at 7:15 PM

On the heels of the surprise announcement that Toyota and Mazda plan to jointly build a $1.6 billion manufacturing plant in the United States, we’re delving deeper into the long-range implications.  Besides providing a shot in the arm to the U.S. economy and jobs growth, what’s in it for the two Japanese automakers?  Specifically, Mazda who is about 1/7th the size of giant auto manufacturer Toyota.  CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona, your #1 Corona Dealership, is optimistic that this marriage between strange bedfellows has the potential to produce great things for Mazda.

What Mazda Stands To Gain

While the strategic hunt for the location of the new Toyota-Mazda plant heats up, with at least a dozen states vying for bragging rights, let’s examine what could result from the alliance between the Japanese auto manufacturers.  First, there’s substantial job growth, with at least 4,000 jobs promised by the creation of the new plant.  Then, there’s the real possibility of shared technology between Toyota and Mazda.  This is an area where Mazda can definitely benefit with regards to electric vehicle (EV) development, as Toyota is ahead of the game.  Mazda, on the other hand, lags behind on EV development, due to their insistence that combustion engines hold promise for the future.  It makes sense that they will team up and design EVs of the future.

Both automakers bought a token of shares from each other to solidify their “marriage of convenience.”  On paper, it looks like the start of a beautiful collaboration.  While Toyota is expected to initially manufacturer Corollas, their smaller sedan, Mazda has indicated they’ll manufacturer a yet-unnamed crossover SUV at the new plant.  It remains to be seen if EVs may also be manufactured at the Toyota-Mazda facility in the long run, but anything’s possible.

CardinaleWay Mazda Has A Wide-Ranging Selection Of Vehicles

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, stop by CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona and check us out.  We’ve got the best selection of the latest Mazda models and Certified Preowned vehicles.  If a Mazda sports car tickles your fancy, perhaps you’d like to test drive the all-new 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF hardtop convertible or the 2017 Mazda3.  Our top family choices include the 2017 Mazda CX-5 crossover SUV, 2017 Mazda6 sedan or the three-row 2017 Mazda CX-9.  We’ve got a vehicle to fit every lifestyle at prices you can afford!

Mazda Announces Its Latest SKYACTIV Engine

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 at 6:50 PM

The most recent revelation from Mazda is that they have a new SKYACTIV engine to add to their repertoire.  The latest addition has been identified as the SKYACTIV-X, and it will be coming soon to Mazda vehicles in 2019.  CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona, your #1 Corona dealership, is excited about this latest development.  For some time now, Mazda has been hinting that it has made a significant breakthrough in the advancement of its SKYACTIV engines.

Mazda’s: The Future Is In Combustion Engines

The newest engine from Mazda is an internal combustion engine.  Typically, it works by sparking the fuel-air mixture with a compression ignition.  This proprietary SKYACTIV-X engine is unique because it reportedly has an extremely lean burn.  This means an increase in fuel economy, estimated to be 20 to 30 percent higher than Mazda’s current SKYACTIV-G engine. The engineers at Mazda are optimistic that this will have a positive impact on the overall efficiency of future Mazda vehicles outfitted with the SKYACTIV-X engine.

Mazda’s Blueprint For Looking Ahead To 2030

Additionally, Mazda announced news that it has created an ambitious agenda as it looks towards the future.  Mazda refers to this blueprint as “Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030.”   Obviously, the keyword here is sustainable.  What Mazda refers to here is the ability to tap into energy resources and keep them at a consistent level without depleting them.  We’re hearing that this means reducing the carbon dioxide emissions by at least 50 percent by the year 2030.

CardinaleWay Mazda Is Proud Of Mazda’s Accomplishments

Always known for being a leader among the auto industry, Mazda continues to deliver outstanding contributions as demonstrated by the latest SKYACTIV-X engine.  We’re extremely proud to be associated with an automaker who conscientiously cares about its consumers and the environment.  Come to CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona and check out our selection of the latest Mazda models, such as the 2017 Mazda6 sedan and the 2017 Mazda CX-5 crossover SUV.  It won’t be long before the 2018 Mazda models begin arriving.  Now is the time to make the best deals on outgoing 2017 Mazda models!

New $1.6 Billion Auto Manufacturing Plant Coming To The U.S.

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 17th, 2017 at 4:09 PM

In a surprising move that created a great deal of excitement in the business sector, Toyota and Mazda have announced that they’ve joined forces to build a new $1.6 billion auto manufacturing plant in the United States.  Now begins the war between the states vying for the prime location of the new plant.  CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona, your favorite Corona dealership, extends a hearty congratulations to Mazda and Toyota on their newly formed alliance.

New Toyota-Mazda Plant Will Mean More Jobs

Although we don’t yet know the exact location of the new auto manufacturing plant, it’s been revealed that it’s expected to create up to 4,000 new jobs.  This will definitely impact the U.S. economy in a positive way.  Mazda has never manufactured its cars in the U.S. before.  The new plant will produce up to 300,000 vehicles per year.  We’re told that it will primarily manufacture the Toyota Corolla sedan and a Mazda SUV crossover model for the North American market, yet to be determined.  The new plant should be completed by 2021, and Toyota and Mazda will split the cost of building the facility.

Toyota And Mazda To Share More Than Just A Manufacturing Plant

The two Japanese automakers, Toyota and Mazda, are coming together for more than just the joint operation of a new plant in the United States.  It appears that they will also collaborate on technology, such as for electric vehicles (EVs).  In addition, Toyota has purchased 5.05% of Mazda and in turn, Mazda purchased .25% of Toyota.  We certainly wish them well, and it’s encouraging to see competitive businesses work together.

We’re Proud To Be Associated With The Mazda Brand

Mazda is known for their talented engineering “think tank.”  Their vehicles are among the most innovative and reliable on the market.  They’re also affordably priced and fuel efficient.  Did you know that Mazda’s entire 2017 lineup has been awarded the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating?  This is an incredible accomplishment that no other auto manufacturer can match!  CardinaleWay Mazda Corona is proud to be associated with the Mazda brand.  Visit us and see our latest Mazda sports car models.  We’ve got something for everyone!

How You Can Prevent Your Vehicle From Hydroplaning

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 at 4:06 PM

Hydroplaning is a phenomenon that none of us wishes to experience in our lifetime.  For one, it’s scary and for another, it can cause a potentially deadly car accident.  Hydroplaning occurs when a vehicle hits a patch of water on the roadway and its tires are unable to scatter the water quick enough.  As a result, the vehicle may suddenly veer out of control and spin out.  However, you can be prepared with these tips from CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona, your favorite Corona dealership.

Follow These Tips To Avoid Hydroplaning

When it is raining, be mindful that the potential for hydroplaning is present.  Often, during the first ten minutes of a rainfall, the danger of hydroplaning is at its greatest.  That’s because the water is mixing with any grease or oil that may be on the pavement, making it slippery.  The longer it rains, the more the slippery residue is washed away.  Adhere to the following tips to help prevent hydroplaning:

  1. If your cruise control is on, turn it off.  Slow down and avoid the outer lanes where water accumulates faster.
  2. Allow plenty of room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
  3. Avoid slamming on your brakes or making sudden stops.  Instead, slowly press on your brake pedal.
  4. Inspect your tires regularly for tread wear and make sure they are properly inflated.  Bring your vehicle to your auto dealership for tire maintenance such as tire rotation or replacement when necessary.
  5. If you do find yourself starting to hydroplane, don’t panic.  Avoid applying the brakes or accelerating, and steer in the direction that the vehicle is going.  Often, this will be enough to bring a vehicle safely out of a hydroplaning situation.

Our Service Department Is Second To None

If you need replacement tires or your tires rotated, bring your vehicle to our Service department at CardinaleWay Mazda Corona.  Our Service technicians are highly trained and have access to the latest state-of-the-art equipment.  We can do it all right here, from oil filter changes to a transmission tune up, let us take care of your vehicle.  We think you’ll agree that our Service department is second to none.  For all your automotive needs, come to CardinaleWay Mazda Corona.
