CardinaleWay Mazda Corona Suggests “Boredom Busters” For Road Trips With Children

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

Traveling with children during Summer road trips can often be challenging.  How many times do you anticipate you’ll hear the refrain, “Are we there yet?”  Or the non-stop complaints of children confined in close quarters, such as, “He’s breathing on me and he has stinky breath!”  CardinaleWay Mazda Corona, your favorite Corona dealership, has a solution to how you can make your road trip more enjoyable for the entire family.

Games You Can Play With Your Children On Road Trips

Make the hours fly by when you engage your children in fun games.  The possibilities are endless, but we’ve listed a few that will surely resonate with your youngsters:

  1. Probably the most popular road game is, “I Spy.” Since you are constantly moving while traveling, restrict the item spied to what can be found in your vehicle.  Everyone takes a turn and recites, “I spy with my little eye, and the color is ______.”  Take turns guessing what the item might be.
  2. The “License Plate Game” is geared toward the older set, eight years and up, who can read and write. The object is to spot license plates from as many different U.S. states as possible.  This will require paper and pencil or pen.  You’ll be amazed how long you can keep this game going!
  3. This one may take some advanced planning, but “Road Sign Bingo” is a great game to keep the kids occupied. You’ll need to make sturdy stock board Bingo cards with signs for common restaurants such as (McDonalds, Cracker Barrel) and gas stations (Shell, BP), and tourist destinations that you know will be on your route.  Have them watch for billboard signs and provide them with stickers to put on their Bingo boards when they find a matching sign board.  First one to get five in a row to spell “BINGO,” wins.
  4. Read a familiar fairy tale to your children, then ask them to retell it by changing the names of the characters and the circumstances. Get everyone involved, even Dad. You can start the re-telling by giving an opening sentence and then appoint the next person to add their narrative.  It’s fun to write it all down so that when you’re done, you have something to add to your vacation scrapbook.
  5. For younger children, play “ABC Scavenger Hunt” and ask them to identify objects they see along the route that start with the corresponding letter of the alphabet. For instance, “C” is for cow or “T” is for truck.  They may need some hints, but it’s a great way for them to learn their alphabet.

CardinaleWay Mazda Corona Is Your One-Stop Dealership

You can survive your Summer road trip with the kids in tow!  The next time you’re in the market for a new vehicle, visit us at CardinaleWay Mazda Corona.  We’ve got a great selection of the latest Mazda sports car models.  Visit our website at www.cardinalewaymazdacorona.com to complete an online application for quick pre-approval.  Purchase your next vehicle here, and don’t forget that we encourage trade-in deals.  After you drive your new vehicle home, take a look at your vehicle Owner’s Manual and plan a schedule for auto maintenance.  Then bring your vehicle to our highly trained Service technicians for all your automotive needs.  We want to be your one-stop dealership!

Mazda Is Committed To Consumer Safety As ALL 2017 Mazda Models Are Now Designated As IIHS Top Safety Pick+

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

Inside Mazda has just disclosed the exciting news that ALL 2017 Mazda models have now received the prestigious Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+.  This comes as the 2017 Mazda CX-5, the latest 2017 model to be released, received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s highest safety rating.  CardinaleWay Mazda Corona, your favorite Corona dealership, is proud to offer an entire lineup of Mazda models with this distinguished Top Safety Pick+ award.

Rigorous Safety Standards Of The IHHS

The non-profit organization, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, has a well-defined set of safety standards that vehicles must pass before they are awarded the Top Safety Pick+.  Long regarded as a gatekeeper in ensuring automobile safety for consumers, the IIHS designation of Top Safety Pick+ is an honor that is highly coveted among automobile manufacturers.  To pass the safety test, a vehicle must receive a rating of “Good” in all five categories for crashworthiness.  Then, a vehicle must pass with an “Advanced” or “Superior” for front crash prevention.  Mazda has designed its vehicles with excellent front-crash safety prevention measures. Finally, vehicles must receive a “Good” for vehicle headlights.  Mazda vehicles are all outfitted with LED headlights which greatly contribute to improved nighttime driving.  We applaud the consistent efforts of the Mazda engineering think-tank in designing all 2017 Mazda models with safety in mind.  No other automaker in 2017 can boast that their entire lineup has been awarded the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award!

Safety First With ALL 2017 Mazda Models

You can’t go wrong with selecting a 2017 Mazda model for your next vehicle— especially if safety is your primary concern, as it should be.  Visit us at CardinaleWay Mazda Corona and view our great selection of the latest Mazda models and Preowned Certified vehicles.  Ask to test drive the vehicle that piques your interest.  Our Sales team and Finance department will be happy to assist you in finding the perfect Mazda to fit your lifestyle and budget.  Don’t forget that we offer a full spectrum of services in our Service department.  If you need an oil filter change or transmission tune-up, give us a call and we’ll schedule an appointment that’s convenient for you.  For all your automotive needs, see our user-friendly website at www.cardinalewaymazdacorona.com.

Mazda Promotes Ad Campaign To Push For Brand Recognition Among Hispanic Consumers

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

A recent press release from Inside Mazda indicates that Mazda is releasing a full-scale ad campaign in July 2017 targeting Hispanic consumers.  Research by Mazda’s marketing department found that there are roughly over twelve million Hispanics living in the United States.  Problem is, Mazda discovered that the Mazda brand is not widely identified among the Hispanic population. CardinaleWay Mazda Corona is excited about the ad campaign, and is ready to welcome more Hispanic consumers to its Corona dealership.

Television Ads To Begin Appearing On Telemundo And Univision

In order to get the widest exposure possible, Mazda is airing its digital ads on Spanish-speaking television stations Telemundo and Univision.  The hope is that the ads will help to bring more awareness of the compatibility of the Mazda brand with the Hispanic culture.  Specifically, the ads will illustrate the shared core values of Passion, Harmony and Perseverance.  According to Russell Wager, who is the vice president of Marketing for Mazda North American Operations, research revealed that, “…the Hispanic Mazda customer is a true car enthusiast; someone who appreciates styling and performance., but is also hyper-digital and social.”  The ultimate goal is to bring in more Hispanic consumers as the word gets out that Mazda’s core values are similar to Hispanic consumers.

How You Can Make Your Gas Mileage Go Further

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

CardinaleWay Mazda Corona, your local Corona Dealership, has some great ideas to increase your vehicle’s gas mileage.  Try any of these suggestions and you might be surprised to discover how you can save money at the gas pump!  Everyone likes to save money, right?

For starters, probably the best way to save at the pump is to drive a later model.  Fuel economy on newer cars are almost always improved over older models.  Consider trading in an older model and invest in a new vehicle.  Don’t forget that he best place to make a trade-in deal is right here at CardinaleWay Mazda Corona!

  • Follow a regular auto maintenance plan.  Routine oil filter changes, tire rotations and other services will make your car run more efficiently and improve fuel economy.
  • Remove any excess baggage that makes your car heavier and work harder.  An overhead luggage rack will also burn additional fuel, so take it off unless you are going on vacation.
  • Driving aggressively will cost you in terms of fuel efficiency.  Instead, drive friendlier and you’ll reap the benefits of extra mileage.
  • In cold weather, warm up your vehicle for thirty seconds.  Then, drive away slowly to conserve fuel.

Mazda Introduces Its Latest Technological Advance: Aqua-Tech Paint System

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

CardinaleWay Mazda Corona, your favorite Corona Dealership, has the scoop on Mazda’s latest technological breakthrough.  It’s an innovative approach to painting its vehicles that positively impacts our environment.  We love to hear about ways that companies find to protect our environment.

Mazda’s New Three-Layer Painting System

Mazda recently announced that it has created a three-layer painting system called Aqua-Tech.  Apparently, this is an entirely new and unique system because it accurately paints vehicles with an entirely robotic painting system.  As you can imagine, this was a major research and development project, requiring countless man hours.  Developing a painting system that was an improvement on its predecessor required a system that worked flawlessly with the goal of reducing waste.  Inside Mazda reports that there were two major objectives achieved with the Aqua-Tech paint system: even application of a uniform thickness of paint and improving the overall efficiency in the actual painting process.  A benefit of the new Aqua-Tech painting system was that the painting process enhanced the paint job, making it appear glossier, while also significantly reducing waste.  That was accomplished since the Aqua-Tech paint system is water-based.  Therefore, it was able to reduce the emission of volatile organic compounds by a whopping 78 percent compared to other competing methods!  Committed to preserving our environment, Mazda has once again proved that it has an environmentally friendly agenda.

Have You Test Driven The All-New 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF?

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Now that the highly anticipated all-new 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF convertible with the retractable hard top has arrived in North America, we are merely curious how many of you have actually taken it for a test drive.  If you haven’t, delay no further, as CardinaleWay Mazda Corona invites you to visit us and take the latest Mazda sports car out for a spin.  It’s a thrill ride you won’t soon forget!

The Miata Convertible That Has Long Been The Darling, Just Got A Daring Counterpart

The original Mazda Miata MX-5 convertible with the soft top has been around now for a couple of decades.  It’s won many fans over the years, and remains the popular favorite in the convertible category.  Now, like an older sibling, it’s had a rude awakening with the debut of the “new baby” in the Mazda family — the 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF.  That’s the daring new sportster with a hard top, where the RF stands for “retractable fastback.”  Let’s just say the debut of the Mazda hard top convertible is shaking things up, as it’s getting a lot of attention!

Some Of The Best Features Of The 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF

Obviously, the 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF’s hard top is getting the most attention, winning accolades for its retractable feature that is accomplished in a mere 13 seconds.  It’s far more affordable than higher-end luxury convertibles, but we admit that the original Mazda Miata MX-5 is still the most economical choice.  The Miata MX-5 RF features the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine.  You can choose between a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.  When it comes down to it, the only choice for sports car enthusiasts is 6-speed manual, right?  Be sure to specify leather seating with contrast trim for a “WOW!” interior.

Test Drive The 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF At Your Local Corona Dealership

Hustle on down to CardinaleWay Mazda Corona to test drive the all-new 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF hard top convertible.  While you’re here, why not check out our other Mazda models and #CertifiedPreowned vehicles?  Or, go online at www.CardinaleWayMazdaCorona.com to view our complete inventory.  We’re here to serve the Salinas and Riverside communities, and hope to see you soon!

CardinaleWay Mazda Corona Shares The Best Ways To Preserve Your Car’s Resale Value

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

According to Kelley Blue Book, there are things you can do to help maintain your vehicle’s value.  CardinaleWay Mazda Corona can even help you with this effort.  We’ve listed below 5 simple steps you can take to keep your vehicle in top condition, and it’s never too late to start new habits:

  1. Keep a regular maintenance schedule. This is where we can help — just bring your vehicle to our Service department, and our highly trained service technicians can show you how to set up a maintenance schedule.  Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for suggested intervals for tire rotations, transmission tune-up and oil filter changes.

  1. Save receipts for all vehicle service and repairs. Keep your receipts organized in your vehicle owner’s manual.  When you sell or trade-in your vehicle down the road, you’ll be able to show that you regularly maintained your car.  A complete record of these expenditures will actually help increase the value of your vehicle.

  1. Regularly clean your vehicle, both interior and exterior. This is quite possibly the most important thing you can do because your vehicle’s appearance will either attract or dismay potential buyers.  Anything you put in your vehicle, always take it out when you arrive home.  It will help keep the clutter at bay.  Consider investing in floor mats and seat covers to protect seats and carpet.  Finally, make it a habit to wash your car at least monthly and apply wax as needed.  One word of advice—you can do a better job washing your car than the local car wash.  If you don’t have the time, there’s likely a neighborhood teenager who would like to earn some extra spending money!

  1. Be mindful of odors in your vehicle that might be detrimental to its future resale value. This includes residual cigarette smoke and pet odors.  At the very least, hang an air freshener in your vehicle and replace it monthly to keep odors at bay.

  1. Make it a habit not to eat in your vehicle. In this age of fast food drive-ins, this seems like an impossible task.  However, food spillage can cause staining on seats and carpet that may be difficult to remove.  For instance, mustard or mayo (it’s the oil residue) leave stubborn stains, and a spilled milkshake can leave your car smelling like rotten milk.
