Cheers To Mazda!

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 18th, 2017 at 10:41 PM

Dealerships in Peoria AZ no doubt are proud of their respective companies.  However, none are as proud as we are at CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria.  The news we recently received from our corporate office regarding our line up of vehicles had us beaming with pride.  We don’t mean to boast, ok maybe we do, but hey, you would, too.  Check out these stats and numbers.

Mazda is celebrating their fourth record-breaking sales month in a row.

The Mazda CX-5 continues to top the charts with its record breaking sales trend. Sales are up almost 6 percent.

Sales of the Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster are very strong, posting a year-over-year (YOY) increase of 13.2 percent.
The three-row Mazda CX-9 is seeing an uptick in sales finishing the last month up 3.3 percent YOY.

Crossover SUVs continue to dominate the market and sales of Mazda’s CX-line are more than impressive with the CX-3, CX-5 and CX-9 collectively reaching 15,201 vehicles sold one month.  That represents an increase of 4.3 percent YOY and a YTD increase of 15.9 percent.
The All-Wheel Drive option remains a favorite with those selecting new cars from the Mazda CX-line, with 62.9 percent of customers choosing the AWD option last month.

Mazda is the only full-line automaker to have every 2017 model year vehicle rated a “Top Safety Pick+,” when equipped with optional front crash-prevention and specific headlights.

Don’t Neglect Your Car After You Get Home

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 11th, 2017 at 10:39 PM

Family road trips can be legendary. They are the ultimate bonding experience.  At CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, our Mazda Car Dealership knows you get the car checked out and pack your bags and go.  But what about your car once you get home?  Do you just park the it and focus on unpacking your bags?  We would advise that you not do that.  Be sure and do the following post trip maintenance.

Check Your Tire Quality

Tires heat up during long road trips. Make sure they are at the right air pressure level upon your return.  Take note of their condition to make sure they are not going bald or have a slow leak.  This is quite possible if you have been driving through unpredictable challenging terrain.

Check Your Car’s Fluids

The fluid levels in your car change drastically during a long road trip. Getting an oil change when you get home is very important!  If you’ve been driving with a trailer, your vehicle will use more oil than expected. Check oil levels, engine coolant and brake fluid.

Consider Getting A Post Trip Maintenance Service

You’ve just logged a lot of miles on your journey so check your maintenance schedule.  It might be a good idea to just go ahead and make an appointment for an overall service check. Doing this will encompass the items noted above.

Let CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria Care For Your Car

Those who neglect car maintenance, even on newer cars, could end up paying a hefty price in the long run. At CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, we are the best in AZ service.  Our mechanics are professional and thorough.  Let us check your car out before and after your trip.  You’ll have peace of mind and add to your car’s life.

It’s All In The Blend – SKYACTIV technology

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 4th, 2017 at 10:37 PM

No, we aren’t talking about coffee or wine; we’re referring to technology and engineering.  Our Mazda Car Dealership, CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria knows that the perfect blend for Mazda vehicles is SKYACTIV technology.

Mazda’s technology, SKYACTIV, was created with the principle of Sustainable Zoom-Zoom in mind.  Mazda’s aspiration was to ensure that their customers consistently experience driving pleasure as well as enviable environmental and safety performance.  SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technologies integrates control of the engine, transmission, chassis and body to blend and complement each element.  The result is a sense of connectedness between car and driver that sets Mazda vehicles apart from their competitors.

Ten years ago, Mazda set out to reinvent its technology suite with a mindset that “the sky’s the limit”.  Mazda engineers were determined to keep their vehicles lightweight and fun-to-drive with the addition of increased efficiency and primo overall performance.  The outcome was Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology!

SKYACTIV’s unified dynamic performance in combination with constant feedback and response from the braking system, steering wheel and accelerator, allows drivers to have the ultimate command and control of their vehicle.  It makes for a fun and precise drive.

The 2013 Mazda CX-5, the first Mazda vehicle with a full integration of SKYACTIV Technologies, set the tone for the Mazdas we see today. Their bodies, chassis, suspension, engines and transmission reflect Mazda’s passive and active safety technologies and fuel efficiencies. New Mazda owners can take their pick of models that now have SKYACTIV technology.  Great news!

CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria Has The Latest And Greatest

At CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, we are confident in saying we are the best of the best of Peoria dealerships.  We have a stellar lineup of of new and used vehicles and a sales crew and service team that can’t be beat. Stop by.

Who’s Buying Cars These Days?

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 24th, 2017 at 8:11 PM

At our Mazda Car Dealership, CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, we’ve noticed a shift in who is buying cars.  It used to be the 35-44 age age group that was most likely to buy a car. These days, 62% of all new cars purchased are being bought by Baby Boomers.  Back in 2001, this same group represented only 39% of new cars sold.  In fact, today, just 1 in 4 new vehicles are being purchased by people in the 35-49 age demographic.  Oh my, how things have changed.

More times than not, circumstance and income dictate who buys a car and the car they buy.  We found these facts regarding the income correlation and car buying of interest.

  • The average annual income for used car buyers: $48,004.
  • 30% of recently purchased cars were bought by individuals with a household income that fits within the highest income percentile.
  • Fewer cars are bought by single women than their population demographic, but when they do buy, their purchase represents a greater percentage of new vehicles.
  • Rural residents [71%] are more likely to purchase used cars than their urban counterparts [65%].
  • Caucasians/Whites make up 88% of the car buying market.
  • $399 represents the average monthly payment for a new vehicle.

CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria Has A Vehicle For Everyone

Our population in Peoria is diverse.  From Baby Boomers to Millennials, we have a ride to suit your needs and budget.  At CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, we have a huge selection of new Mazdas.  We are also excited to be known as Used Cars Peoria!  You can feel confident in any new or used vehicle you buy from us.  We stand behind them all!  Come by our showroom and select a car to test drive or start your search online at www.cardinalewaymazdapeoria.com.

Road-Trip Prep Makes The Difference

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 at 8:09 PM

At our Mazda Car Dealership, CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, we are all about prepping for a road trip.  Let us help by servicing your car so your trip is safe.  Think about the following to ensure everyone enjoys the journey:

Easy access items like electronic chargers, wet wipes, kleenex, napkins and a first aid kit should be stocked in the main console.

A snack bin is a big must for any road trip.  Make everyone their favorites and put them in a snack sack.  Granola bars, pretzels, carrots, cookies, etc …

Pack your favorites.  Everyone should have a small tote or bag with items they can use to pass the time.  For kids, that might be coloring books, dolls or games.  For adults, this might be magazines, books or electronics.

Keep a trash bag handy.  In fact, have a few for the back and front.  At every stop along the way, collect the bags and get another ready for the next leg of the trip.  You car cabin will stay much more orderly and less smelly.

DVD Players or tablets can be a godsend on really long trips with kids.  Plug in their favorite movie or show and watch the arguments and whining subside.  Enjoy a little peace on earth for a little while!

One overnight bag should be packed, with all of the stuff everyone will need for a night’s stay.  Doing this will keep you from having to drag the big luggage out of the car and  into the hotel.

Your Trip Should Begin With CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria

At CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, www.cardinalewaymazdapeoria.com, we pride ourselves as the best in AZ service.  Before your next road trip, let our expert service team give your Mazda a trip check.  Call or go online to make a service appointment.  Have a great trip!

The 2016 Mazda3 Is One Impressive Ride

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 at 8:07 PM

Other Peoria dealerships only wish they had the selection of great cars that we do at CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria.  We are proud of our lineup of Mazdas.  One that you won’t want to miss is the 2016 Mazda3.  It’s one sporty ride that still affords those who drive it comfort and great fuel economy.

The incredibly well-tuned steering and suspension you’ll discover with the Mazda3 will prompt you to take every tight corner head on.  The car’s refined ride quality makes it a thrill to drive on the highway, as well as on neighborhood streets.

You can get a 2016 Mazda3 in a four-door sedan or hatchback body style.  Either pick, the compact sedan or hatchback will deliver a reliable, safe, roomy and technology laden set of wheels.  Both body styles are available with 2.0-liter four-cylinder or 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines.  Make plans to keep on going as you whiz by a few extra gas stations.  The Mazda3 has an EPA estimated fuel economy of 34 mpg combined (30 city/41 highway) with the automatic transmission.

The experts that deem what is best in class praise the Mazda3 for its intuitive layout and high-quality panels, materials and switches.  Mazda3’s rivals are way behind when it comes to features.  The Mazda3 sports features like a head-ups display, adaptive headlights and adaptive cruise control.

CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria Has It All

Dealerships in Peoria AZ have nothing on CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria.  They can’t touch our incredible selection, stellar sales staff or attentive service team.  We have it all and can’t wait to show you our stuff.  Make plans to stop in to take a test drive in any of our many new and used cars.  You will find us online at www.cardinalewaymazdapeoria.com.

How Lucky We Are To Live In Peoria

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, August 21st, 2017 at 8:05 PM

At CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, we know we are envied by other Peoria dealerships.  As residents of Peoria, we are also the envy of those that live elsewhere.  If you’d love to get your friends or family members over 40 to leave Cleveland and move closer to you, we think a great place to show them is Westbrook Village.  It’s one of the most attractive and desirable age-restricted communities in the greater Phoenix area and it is right here in Peoria.  Your sales pitch will be easy when you tell them it has two eighteen hole golf courses, two community centers with swimming and spa pools and over eighty clubs and social groups to keep them socially engaged and entertained.

Westbrook Village has over 3,900 homes of all styles and sizes.  You will find large single-family homes, condos and casitas that have been thoughtfully designed with both winter visitor and full-time residents in mind.  Given the age restrictions are as low as “40-plus”,  Westbrook Village it the perfect choice for active adults that want a sense of community close to all that the Valley has to offer.

Arrowhead Towne Center Mall, only 2 miles away, has more than 159 stores and restaurants. The Peoria Sports Complex, home to spring training camp for the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners is really close.  If the great outdoors is your thing, Peoria’s Lake Pleasant Regional Park is a short drive to the north. Arizona sunshine awaits!

Technology Is A Growing Factor In Car Purchases

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 17th, 2017 at 5:56 PM

Our Mazda Car Dealership, CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria knows that you expect a lot from your vehicle.   Over the years, your expectations have evolved.  You want your ride’s technology to keep up with your consumer electronics like your smartphone and tablet. OEMs and suppliers rely on info from various sources to figure out how best to refine their business plans.  One data resource is the IHS Markit survey.  Insight from this survey is the foundation for the 2017 Automotive Connected Services and Apps Consumer Analysis.  Over 5,000 vehicle owners across the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Germany and China who planned to purchase a new vehicle in the next 36 months participated in this year’s survey.

Which Apps Do You Want?

Almost 50 percent noted navigation apps as their top choice. Forty percent wanted weather apps and 30 percent would pay for music apps.  This represents a revenue-producing opportunity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto going forward.

Telematics will be added to new vehicles more than ever by 2022.  Half the world’s vehicles in operation will be connected to the Internet.  However, only 32 percent of respondents would be willing to pay for those telematics, including in-car Wi-Fi.

Folks are willing to pay for fun and practical tech, too.  Vehicles with a sunroof or moonroof were high on the desired list.  Respondents from the U.S. are willing to pay for a rear entertainment system.  32 percent of survey respondents want a roadside assistance feature in a new vehicle.  Kinda interesting, isn’t it?

Road Trip Games!

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 at 5:53 PM

It’s so much fun to hit the open road to explore our country.  As one of the most preferred dealerships in Peoria AZ, CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria wants your family’s summer vacation to be a blast for all.  When adults and kids are confined for miles and miles in their Mazda, excitement can morph into cries of, “are we there yet” and “don’t make me pull over”.  Keep your adventure fun by playing a few games as you travel down the highway.

License Plate Game.  Everyone in the car can play this.  Go old school and use a pad of paper writing down the name of each state plate you see until someone sees all 50 states.  If you haven’t used pen and paper in ions, go online to get a free printable license plate game sheet and just cross off states as they are seen.

I Spy. “I spy with my little eye, something yellow.”  Preschoolers especially love this easy-to-learn game.  You can keep them entertained for hours with this one.  If you aren’t familiar with this classic, here’s how it is played: A person spies something and recites the line, ending in a clue, like yellow. Everyone takes turns guessing the mystery item.

Road Trip Bingo. This game combines a scavenger hunt with bingo.  Give each player a flat surface like a clipboard.  Give them a bingo card and a zip-lock bag with 16 pennies.  As players see an item on their card, they cover the picture with a penny.  The first player to cover all their squares in a straight line wins.

We Don’t Play Games At CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria

Our Mazda Car Dealership, CardinaleWay Mazda Peoria, www.cardinalewaymazdapeoria.com, won’t play games with your car buying dollar.  Let us impress you.  Come see us.
