Reading The Window Sticker On A New Car

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

shutterstock_453999325

Have you ever taken a walk around a car lot and found yourself trying to figure out all the information on that window sticker? Those window stickers actually have a name–#Monroneys. As you probably already know, they have everything the buyer needs to know about the vehicle they are looking at and what’s included in the purchase. The name Monroney comes directly from Oklahoma Senator Mike Monroney’s name. He worked to make sure car buyers knew what they were getting before the purchase.

Like mattress tags, a Monroney is applied by the manufacturer and can only be removed by the purchaser. Every Monroney is individual to the car its on and it has that car’s VIN listed on it. If you look at the price on it, you’ll see that there is a list of items that add up to the final price. If a cost isn’t included for an item you know the car has, then you know that the item is included in the price.

 

The car’s name and MPG rating are bolded and in prominent font. It’s important to remember that these numbers are a testing result and fuel economy on the car may differ from this.

 

Aside from this bolded information, you’ll see that items and features will be listed below. There is quite a bit of information to review there. A quick tip–take a picture of the window sticker with your camera phone or ask a sales staff member to provide you with a copy. That way, you’ll be able to review it in the comfort of your own home and at your own leisure.

 

We strive to make the car buying process as easy as possible! Come visit us at CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona for a look at our new and certified pre-owned vehicles or check us out online at www.CardinaleWayMazdaCorona.com.  Our sales professionals can help you find a great new ride and our Finance team can help you drive it off the lot today!

Exciting News About The Mazda MX-5 RF

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Mazda MX-5 RF

The #MazdaMX-5RF has been the talk of convertible sports cars since its New York Auto Show debut earlier this year. Its upscale look and fancy features left many stunned with what Mazda was actually capable of doing. Well, Mazda is capable of a whole lot, but people simply don’t expect car manufacturers to take risks like this. Mazda is an affordable brand that loves walking the luxury line.

 

The RF is a hardtop version of its soft top model, only this hardtop convertible is engineered to lack the drawbacks of so many other hardtop convertible cars out there. The drawbacks to those other models are a smaller trunk space and a slow or manual system that closes the top. The RF has none of this. Quite opposite, in fact!

 

So what’s the exciting news? A price has been set for this model! As popular and as innovative as it is, we’re sure some people assumed the price was going to astronomical We’re happy to say it’s not. At the most basic trim, this model starts at only $31,555. This trim is called the Club trim and for not much more, you can get the top-of-the-line trim: the Grand Touring trim at $32,620.

 

It’s already in production in Japan. You’ll be able to purchase your own RF early next year. Don’t wait until next year to figure out which trim and color options are the best fit for you! Come visit us at CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona. We’d love to help you figure out exactly what you’re looking for before they arrive, so when they do, you’re ready to go. We’re all about making the process easier for you, so don’t hesitate to stop by.

Mazda CX-3

Small crossovers are all the rage right now and although the #MazdaCX-3 is only a year old, it’s already a hot commodity. So hot, in fact, that it’s been called the best compact crossover in the market.

The Grand Touring trim is Mazda’s most popular choice for its whole and luxurious feeling. While it’s true that sitting in any Mazda model or trim will make you feel comfortable and at ease, the top of the line trim, Grand Touring, offers more premium features like a leather trim.

 

The dashboard is trimmed with a long padded leather strip. The surrounding surfaces, such as the doors and console, are also lined with leather. The contrasting colors, on all available color combinations, compliment each other very well. The comfortable seats also come lavished in these gorgeous premium materials.

 

Let’s talk about what’s under the hood. The CX-3 has a SkyActiv 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 146 horsepower. This arrangement carries the crossover just fine but if you’re looking for a more powerful drive, just make use of the Sport Mode. It’s a lot of fun!

 

At $28,510, you can enjoy this with the ActivSense package included. This consists of lane-departure warning, blind spot monitoring, smart brake support, radar cruise control, high-beam control and variable rain-sensing wipers.

A Look At The 2015 Mazda3 2.5L Manual Hatchback

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Mazda3 1

The #Mazda3 is a special car. It’s compact and luxurious in ways that leaves you wondering how it happened at that low price. The Mazda3 has been said to be,  “…one of the few cars on the market today that is worth more than it costs.” If you’re looking for a small car that doesn’t stop giving, then please consider this one. Any trim you choose will not disappoint, but we do recommend the Grand Touring trim. It’s a joy to drive!

 

Hatchbacks are pretty popular and our Mazda3 takes its class by storm. If you’re interested in cargo volume, the 3 hatchback will extend your space from 12 to 20 cubic feet, with a charge of only $500 over the Mazda sedans. The Grand Touring option will give you a 2.5-liter four cylinder with 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. The wheels are 18-inches and the option includes 215/45 Dunlop SP Sport 5000.

 

Since this is Mazda’s top-of-the-line trim, expect leather seats (with the front seats heated), blind spot monitors, rain-sensing wipers, a head-up display, rearview camera, adaptive headlights, and navigation and infotainment system (which can be controlled by touchscreen or a knob by the gear shift. Add to this keyless entry and startup, sunroof, and surround-sound audio system made by Bose.

 

While this is a great option for daily commutes to work and back home, it’s also a good car for long weekend trips. Jennifer Harrington, Associate Editor at Car and Driver stated that, “This car is a little sweetie. It has good looks inside and out, and both the front and rear seats are plenty comfortable for long trips.”

 

For a closer look at this compact beauty, please visit us at CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona. We have a great selection of new and certified pre-owned vehicles available for viewing on location or online at www.cardinalewaymazdacorona.com.

Exploring The CX-5 Infotainment System

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Mazda CX-5 interior

The #MazdaCX-5 has a lot to offer in terms of drivability, safety and practicality, but the infotainment system is an area we would like you to explore, as well. Like the model, it is versatile and has a whole lot to offer.

 

First, we want to mention that Mazda Connect is a collective name for the infotainment system, cockpit control wheel combination and the phone connection. The control wheel is different than others in the market in that it has less buttons to have to mess with. It is much sleeker and simple to work with. The available buttons are Navigation, Back, Music, Main Menu and Favorites. The control wheel manages the touch-enabled 8-inch center stack.

 

The navigation is conveniently voice-controlled and the audio system is great! It has the standard AM/FM deck with HD and satellite added to it. If you’d rather listen to what’s playing on your phone, the CX-5 has Bluetooth and USB capabilities. If you need to access Aha, Pandora or Stitcher, you can use the car’s controls to access and use them. The steering wheel and dash are designed to be very accessible to whatever audio needs you may have. You can hop through channels easily through the wheel and the dash has plenty of favorite buttons for you to use.

 

We would love to show you how convenient the infotainment system is set up and how comfortable all the buttons are relative to the driver’s seating position. If you’d like to come take the CX-5 on a test drive, or would like any questions answered, our wonderful sales team at CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona would be more than happy to make that happen for you. For a look at our current inventory, head on over to www.cardinalewaymazdacorona.com.

The Mazda CX-5: The Best Compact SUV On The Market

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Mazda CX-5 2

The CX-5 is an amazing SUV. It’s insanely popular at Mazda and we know why. This compact SUV has a lot offer without taking away from crucial areas that are so important for any vehicle. It wins in power, drivability, safety features, driver assisting, braking–we could go on and on. It’s a whole deal. A great deal!

 

The adaptive cruise control feature on the #MazdaCX-5 has automated braking. What’s more is that the Grand Touring trim provides additional braking support called Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) and Smart Brake Support (SBS).

 

The SCBS consists of a near-infrared laser mounted on the windshield that tracks the car in front while you’re driving at low speeds. If your car approaches the car in front and suddenly that the distance is dangerous, the CX-5 will brake suddenly and help you avoid collision. Even better news? This feature also works when you’re in reverse! There are two sensors located in the back that can detect objects at 1-2.5 mph and will brake the car if it gets too close for comfort.

 

The SBS is different in that it gives a warning before braking the car. This will happen at higher speeds and the SBS is always on. No need to switch it on like you would adaptive cruise control. The warning is a red indicator that flashes “BRAKE” on the dash.
These features are just a few of many that are available in many Mazda models. The CX-5 is great car if you’re looking for a compact SUV that offers style, drivability, safety and comfort. For a test drive, come visit us at Cardinaleway Mazda in Corona. Our amazing sales staff is always happy to answer all your questions! We’d love to see you, please stop by! You can also check out our inventory online at www.CardinaleWayMazdaCorona.com

Long Ride? Take A Seat In The New CX-3, Part II

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Mazda 3 CX-3 delivers

The CX-3 is a heavy hitter in the crossover class. It delivers in more ways than one. If you’re interested in crossovers and SUVs, you’ll want to keep reading.

 

The 2017 model will carry the SkyActiv powertrain, a powerful engine that’s efficient on fuel and smooth on the road. It has a cool little feature that shuts off the engine when sitting idle too long (in order to save you some gas). The steering response is out of this world. The feeling when driving this finely-tuned beauty is literally luxurious. Mazda loves to walk the luxurious line without having to break your bank to get it. It keeps things affordable!

 

The body is stylish, sleek and just beautiful–for any crossover. Mazda never disappoints, with a vehicle that marries good looks and good performance. The grill is reshaped to look even better, the headlights glimmer with LED lighting and the 18 inch alloy wheels complement it perfectly.

 

The touchscreen panel is a good 7 inches in size, the sound system is made by Bose (we love Bose!), the trunk space is roomy and can get even more so–the rear seat can fold down to create a bigger area when necessary.

Body paint colors! The front-wheel drives (in the Pro option) come in Dynamic Blue and Crystal White Pearl. The sport FWD comes in Soul Red, Jet Black, Crystal White Pearl and Titanium Flash. The AWD will have a ceramic finish.

 

We are very excited about showing this model off. It’s a people pleaser! If you’re interesting in giving the CX-3 a test drive, please visit us at CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona, and check out our inventory online. We’re more than happy to show why the CX-3 is the best crossover in the market today!

Long Ride? Take A Seat In The New CX-3, Part I

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Mazda CX-3

If you plan to spend a lot of time driving, consider Mazda’s CX-3. This car is unlike any other crossover on the market. We know how important comfort is to those who take long weekend trips out of town. Maybe you spend a good chunk of your week in traffic, commuting to and from work on the daily. We’ve had to spend countless hours on the road as well and we know how rigid, poorly designed seating can take a nasty toll on the body. We’ve felt that kind of pain enough times that we never want to feel it again!

The great news is that the CX-3 feels like a good pair of jeans. The seats fit just right and the your legs won’t feel cramped or your head too darn close to the roof. The interior look is just gorgeous. Leather and suede line it, with red stitching weaved throughout. The dash is trimmed with a black, leather-like material and a smooth metal decorates the steering wheel, gearshift and doors. These details work really well together to create a pleasant space in this small crossover.

 

Seeing that you’ll be spending this much time on the road, you’ve probably already given some thought to your safety on the road. Can’t blame you, with the car accidents that seem to happen almost daily in the city. In case you don’t already know, you’ll be pleased to learn that Mazda makes safety a priority! The CX-3 is packed with a list of safety features including Lane Keeping Assist, which is a camera-operated system that prevents lane-changing collisions. An alarm will sound if your vehicle runs over a white line without signaling. Apart from this you get stability control, ABS and all-encompassing air bags (front, side and curtains).

 

The CX-3 is at CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona today! Come check out why it rocks the crossover class, and check out our inventory online. You won’t be disappointed!
