Repairing a Tire with a Repair Kit in a Mazda

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

Wheel

A flat tire can be a very frustrating experience. Lucky for you, car maker Mazda has manufactured a temporary puncture repair kit that can help you in the event of an unexpected puncture.

The Mazda Tire Puncture Repair Kit includes a sealant bottle with an injection cap, an air compressor, valve remover, spare valve core, speed limit label, and a printed guide to help you through the process. Note that not all Mazda cars are equipped with this kit.

Before you begin to fix your tire, remember that the sealant bottle can only fix one leak on one tire. Park your car and turn on the hazard warning lights. Take out the sealant bottle and cap. Shake the bottle well, remove the cap, and screw the injection cap onto the bottle. Next, remove the tire’s valve core using the valve remover. Attach the tube of the sealant injection cap to the valve’s stem. Hold the bottle upside-down and transfer all of the sealant into the tire. Remove the injection cap and replace the valve core. Connect the hose of the air compressor to the tire valve and plug in the compressor’s power supply to the vehicle. Put the ignition in ACC and turn the compressor on. Adjust the air pressure to the right level. Once you have reached the right pressure, remove the hose and drive the car for 3 miles or 10 minutes to ensure that the sealant reaches the puncture in the tire. It is important that you do not exceed 50 miles per hour while driving with a sealed tire. Check the tire’s air pressure again.

Contact your nearest Mazda repair specialist as soon as possible to properly service the tire. Stop by at the CardinaleWay Mazda dealership in Corona for more details on Mazda’s tire repair kits.

Tires of the Mazda MX-5

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Mazda MX-5 is a great vehicle by all stretches of imagination. However, when the tires are taken into consideration, it becomes clearer as to why the vehicle is a definite winner. Many of the contemporary MX-5 versions come with Yokohama or Toyo variety of tires. Toyo’s Proxes variety could be considered to be the best replacement for the tires of MX-5. The tire has been constructed with the sports varieties in consideration. The handling, stability and grip of these tires are outstanding. Additionally, the tires have a rather directional pattern of tread, thus making it a fantastic combination for the MX-5 from the perspectives of both appearance and technology.

Among other choices, Bridgestone and Falken are also good for the MX-5. These tires are considered to be better than Nexen and Kumho. Additionally, SportContact and PremiumContact tires could also fit the MX-5 and could be well considered to be a good alternative. In this regard, it is important to mention that tires constitute one of the mostly intricate parts of a vehicle. The tires require inspection on a regular basis in order for them to function properly. Mazda MX-5 has got Tyre Pressure Monitoring System so that you get to know the condition of the tires. Additionally, you could also set the Tyre Maintenance reminder. It is essential so that you don’t forget to service the tires.

Just in case you would want to buy a Mazda MX-5, come and visit the CardinaleWay Mazda Corona store today.

Mazda MX-5 Hill Hold Assist Feature

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Mazda has always attached a lot of importance on ensuring safety and its cars over the years bear testimony to that. However, Mazda MX-5 has taken the concept of vehicular safety to a whole new level altogether. With a lot of other features, the Hill Hold Assist technology is set to redraw the entire concept of safety. It is one feature that prevents the possibility of the car accidentally rolling down a hill when the driver is pulling it away.

When the driver takes the car off along a slope, the technology functions such that the car doesn’t roll in the backward direction just in case the driver loses the controls to the brake. The brake is maintained automatically. Along slopes that are not dangerous, the brake gets released immediately while the accelerator is pushed in order to give it a smooth start. On slopes that are steeper and more difficult, the brakes get released only after the requisite amount of torque is produced.

The safety system has the ability to act independently when stopped along a slope. It lets the driver drive the vehicle in a safe mode without much effort. However, it is equally pertinent to remember that no technology can replace human endeavor. So, the technology is not a replacement for driving finesse and expertise that lets the car go along safely.

If you want to buy a Mazda MX-5, do make it a point to visit the CardinaleWay Mazda Corona store today.

Mazda Hopes to Perform Well at Sebring

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

RaceTrack

John Doonan, the director of motorsports for North America for Mazda remembers the 2016 Rolex 24 both in terms of success and failure. A couple of Mazda Prototypes reached their fastest level during the tournament since the company became a part of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship during its inception back in 2014. However, none of the cars could finish the race.

Now the team goes to Sebring with the same lineup of drivers. One additional driver would be added to the fleet. The race is slated to be held on the March 19, after the opening for the IndyCar season in the city of St. Petersburg. Neither of the Mazda prototypes was included in the initial entry list for the Sebring test. However, the teams that enter the Sebring test have some sort of leeway. Either at Sebring or at some other place, Mazda is slated to earn its first podium fairly soon in the class of prototype. The team has put in more than two years of work for the said purpose.

Doonan said that he is expecting Mazda to fairly well. He said that his team would be aggressively going for the hunt when the cars move out from the garage area. It would be something to see as to how the Mazda team eventually performs at the Sebring tourney.
