Get More Money For Trade-In Or Resale

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Ready to trade in your vehicle to the dealership or offer it for sale to a private buyer?  Since depreciation is a given, you’ll want to do everything you can to increase the value of your vehicle.  Here are some pointers to maximize your vehicle’s worth:

 

First impressions count, so definitely concentrate on the exterior of your vehicle.  The goal is to make it shiny!  Wash your vehicle and apply a coat of wax.  Do it yourself, apply elbow grease and keep rubbing until it gleams.  Use a cleaner specifically formulated for headlights to brighten dull headlights. Shine the rims on the wheels and add air to the tires if they are looking low.   Minimize any visible scratches.

 

Get to work on the interior, and vacuum the carpet. Shampoo carpet if it is badly stained.  Hose off rubber floor mats or invest in new car mats for a spiffier look.  Clean the upholstery or leather seats.  Use a glass cleaner on the windows and rearview mirror.   Run a damp rag over the dash and control panel.  Remove any gear, loose change or trash.  If your vehicle smells stale, hang an air-freshener from your rearview mirror.  Don’t forget about the trunk – vacuum it, as well.

 

Next, pop the hood.  Use a rag to dust off the engine.  Remove any corrosion from the battery by using a wire brush or battery spray.  Inspect the hoses and make sure there are no leaks.  Check the oil level and if low, add more oil.

Locate your registration, title and owner’s manual.  You should have records or invoices for all your vehicle’s service and repair, including any accident reports.  Keep this paperwork with your owner’s manual.  A complete history of your vehicle is an incentive for prospective buyers.

 

Some things you just can’t control such as high mileage.  Either DIY or use an auto detailer to increase the value of your trade in or resale.  Present a vehicle that shows pride in ownership and you can generate extra income to apply towards your new vehicle.

Tips For Traveling With Your Dog

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Mazda Logo

 

Canine companions are treated as a member of the family for many of us. They often accompany us on long treks or even short trips.  With the holiday season upon us, now is a good time to review some pointers for keeping your canine companion safe during road trips.

 

  1. Safely contain your canine. If there is an accident, the last thing you want is for Fido to escape your vehicle in the chaos and become lost or separated from you.  If you have enough cargo space, place your dog in a crate or invest in a canine harness that connects to a seat belt.

 

  1. Don’t forget to update pet ID tags or collar to include your cell phone number, not just your home number. Also, if your canine is microchipped, it’s a good idea to have a copy of the microchip number with you.

 

  1. Some states require proof of Rabies vaccination. Bring along a copy of the Rabies certificate and any other pertinent health records.  Don’t forget to include your Vet’s business card for contact information.

  1. Pack for your dog, too. Include the following:  kibble, water jugs, leash, toys, water and food bowls, disposable poop bags, any medications, brush, blanket, roll of paper towels, plastic bags, treats, old towel and chew bones.

 

  1. Stop every three to four hours for exercise and potty breaks. Rest areas are an ideal spot for this, but require that your pet be on a leash.  Pay attention to signs directing you to designated pet areas.  Be considerate and clean up after your pet.

 

  1. Plan ahead for overnight accommodations and make sure they are pet-friendly. Some accommodations do not permit dogs, or charge an extra non-refundable pet fee.  It’s a good idea to check beforehand so there are no surprises.

 

  1. Ensure that the temperature inside your vehicle is comfortable for your pet. Direct cool air into the rear cargo area and make sure Fido isn’t in direct sunlight.

 

  1. Keep some of the same routines as you would at home. Feed at normal times, and if Fido is accustomed to a long walk, indulge him.

 

  1. Hiking, swimming in a lake or creek, camping or tossing a Frisbee in a park are examples of activities that you can do with your dog. If hiking in hot weather, be sure to take along water for Fido and keep him cool to avoid heat stroke.

 

  1. On a more somber note, never leave your canine companion alone in a vehicle. Most become stressed at being separated from their humans.  They could also become overheated quickly, and a passerby may become concerned enough to break your car window to save Fido.  You also don’t want to risk your beloved pet being stolen from your vehicle.

 

Planning ahead for the safety of your canine companion can make your travels more enjoyable and carefree.  If you’re in the market for a dog-friendly vehicle, check out #MazdaCorona.  Our Mazda Corona dealership has a vast selection.  Our Sales team will be glad to assist you, or visit our website at www.CardinaleWayMazdaCorona.com for all your automotive needs.  Be sure to check out our latest Mazda sports car models.

2016-Mazda-CX-9-dashboard_lg

 

Talk about a winning formula, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is turning heads.  Among the three-row crossover SUVs on the market, the CX-9 commands high praise.  The redesigned 2017 CX-9 model improved itself enough to garner a 2017 10 Best award, according to Car and Driver.  Visually appealing, it’s sleek and sophisticated, yet purposeful.  A three-row crossover, it’s the perfect family vehicle.  There’s plenty of room to stash your gear or you can even bring Rover along.  You can go from 14 cubic feet of space in the cargo hold to an impressive 71 cubic feet if you fold down both the second and third rows.

 

You’ll be impressed with the interior design, as well.  There’s an eight-inch color LCD touchscreen on the dashboard.  (The Sport trim comes with a seven-inch touchscreen.)  The CX-9’s safety features include blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure assistance. The Grand Touring and Signature trims offer cruise control that relies on radar and will apply the brakes if a collision is imminent.

Choose either front or all-wheel drive. The engine is a 2.5 liter turbo 4-cylinder for 250 horsepower with a six-speed automatic. Fuel economy for front-wheel drive models is 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.  Also optional are 20-inch wheels to make the CX-9 a smooth ride.

 

Three-row vehicles are in demand, and the 2017 Mazda CX-9 delivers.  What’s holding you back?  Come check it out for yourself.  Visit us at #CWMazdaCorona, your #1 Corona Dealership, located at 6950 West Sahara Avenue.  We challenge you to take the 2017 Mazda CX-9 for a test drive.  We’re confident the exhilarating ride of the CX-9 will get you stoked.  You’ll be singing its praises, too!  To see the latest updates in Mazda sports car technology and for all your automotive needs, visit our website at www.CardinaleWayMazdaCorona.com.

2017 Mazda3 On 10 Best Cars List

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Mazda3 2017 3

 

The Mazda3 is a remarkable model that has been making its appearance on noteworthy lists lately.  It edged out the Honda Civic for honors as the Best Car for Teen Drivers, and now it appears it will repeat its placement on the 10 Best Cars list.  Take note, that’s three years running as a popular best vehicle.  The Mazda3 resembles a typical Mazda sports car, but it offers more flexibility, an admirable trait.  For starters, there’s more cargo space, as the rear seats can fold down.  With Mazda3’s hatchback, it makes it easier for you to load and unload your packages or gear.  Not to mention, Fido can easily hop into the hatch!

 

Mazda doesn’t rest on its laurels, as it continues to improve its popular Mazda3. Notice that the Mazda3 hatchback model sports a different rear bumper which lends it a sportier feel.  An optional heated steering wheel is available, as are LED headlights, an electric parking brake and new upholstery options. Improvements have been made to significantly reduce the noise levels inside the vehicle.  Also new this year is a more responsive steering system, G-Vectoring Control.

 

Choose between a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 6-speed automatic.  For those who crave a little extra excitement, the stick delivers!  The engine is a 2.0 liter, 4-cylinder on the 3-i models and 2.5 liter, inline-4 on 3-s models.

 

Safety is always a top concern, and Mazda offers i-Activsense.  This is a safety suite that is capable of reading road signs and can sense if you begin drifting out of your intended lane.  It’s only available as an option on the Mazda3.  However, it’s certainly well worth the additional investment, for such features as adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring and forward collision warning.

 

Discover why the Mazda3 landed on the Best 10 list again.  Not only is it affordable, it’s a well-designed and reliable vehicle.  Hands down, the 2017 Mazda3 should be on your short list.  Stop in at #MazdaCorona, your friendly Corona dealership and let us assist you in your quest for a new vehicle or a certified pre-owned vehicle.

With newer 2017 models rolling out, watch for Mazda’s MX-5 RF Miata.  Hands down, it should win an award for the sharpest dressed vehicle.  Put simply, it has that “wow factor.”  It’s flashy by Hollywood standards and  turns in a performance that will surely make its competitors envious.  Hurry on down to #MazdaCorona and prepare to be mesmerized by this outstanding Mazda sports car.  We think you’re going to be blown away by this gem.
