CardinaleWay Mazda Corona Suggests Cleaning Your Car’s Engine

Monday, September 11th, 2017

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.

Let CardinaleWay Mazda Corona Take Care Of Your Vehicle

CardinaleWay Mazda Has Suggestions For Labor Day Activities

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

As Summer draws to a close, we have the Labor Day holiday to celebrate.  This is for all the workers who have a well-deserved holiday to enjoy one last fling of Summer.  Since it always falls on the first Monday of September, it’s a long weekend.  CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona, your favorite Corona dealership, encourages you to make the most of your Labor Day weekend.  Here are a few suggestions for how you can celebrate:

Host A Block Party And Invite All The Neighbors

Fire up the grill, send out invites to your neighbors and host a Neighborhood Potluck Block Party.  This is a terrific way to get acquainted with your neighbors.  Organize some yard games like croquet for the kids or get the adults involved with some old-fashioned three-leg or potato sack races.

Load Up The Bicycles And Spend The Day Cycling

Bicycling is an activity that the entire family can enjoy.  Pick a new location or bike trail.  Pedal to your heart’s content!  As you ride, be sure to glance at the gorgeous scenery along the way.  Stop for an ice cream cone afterwards.

Take A Walk On The Wild Side And Visit The Orange County Zoo

If you didn’t make it to the zoo this summer, there’s no better time than now.  You’re likely to see plenty of zoo babies on display.  Most zoos also feature interactive displays where you can pet some of the animals.  Do you have a favorite zoo animal?  Take plenty of pictures to preserve the memories.

Picnic In The Park

Pack a picnic basket full of sandwiches and other goodies and head for your favorite park.  Plan to spend the day hiking, throwing frisbees with Fido or the kids, and relaxing.  After working up an appetite, spread out a quilt or blanket and chow down on a picnic lunch.

Make An Appointment To Bring Your Vehicle To CardinaleWay Mazda

With the kids returning to school or college, this is the perfect time to drop off your vehicle or even your college student’s vehicle at CardinaleWay Mazda.  Our highly trained Service technicians will be glad to perform an auto maintenance check-up on any of your vehicles.  Need a transmission tune up, an alignment or tire rotation?  No problem, come to CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona for all your service needs!

How You Can Prevent Your Vehicle From Hydroplaning

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

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.

CardinaleWay Mazda Offers Tips On How To Prevent Rodents From Chewing On Your Vehicle’s Wiring And Hoses

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Those pesky rodents, mice and squirrels like to chew on the weirdest things to sharpen their teeth.  You may be surprised to know that rodents are attracted to vehicle wiring and hoses.  This can create a host of problems for car owners, such as electrical problems.  CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona, your favorite Corona dealership, offers tips on how you can help prevent rodents from chewing on your vehicle’s wiring and hoses.

Practical Tips To Keep Away Rodents

You need to realize that it’s very easy for rodents to gain access to your vehicle.  Particularly appealing to rodents are vehicles that are parked in wooded areas or vehicles that are parked for prolonged periods of time.  Make sure that you don’t leave food items in your car as the smell of food may be too tempting for rodents to refuse. Look for signs of rodent infestation, such as shredded paper, leaves or other signs of nesting.  If you think that you might have a rodent problem, you can set traps or mothballs in or around your vehicle.  Mothballs can be poisonous to dogs and cats if ingested, so be sure to place mothballs where they can’t be reached by your pets.

Bring Your Vehicle To CardinaleWay Mazda For Service

If you suspect that rodents have chewed on your vehicle’s wiring or hoses, or if your Check Engine light comes on, bring your vehicle to CardinaleWay Mazda for service. Our Service technicians will be glad to check it out for you.  Our highly trained Service department can take care of all your auto needs, including a transmission tune up, tire rotation or oil filter change. While you’re here, feel free to browse our dealership lots.  We have an impressive selection of the latest Mazda models and Certified Preowned vehicles.  Check out our website at www.cardinalewaymazdacorona.com for  all your automotive needs.

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.

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.
