Your first time buying a car can often be stressful and overwhelming, especially if you don’t know what to expect. As such, when checking out a dealership’s inventory, be sure to keep these car shopping strategies in mind to have a smooth and easy experience.
Know what you need
If you begin the car shopping process before figuring out your wants and needs, you’ll end up wasting lots of time trying to decide between a wide variety of models. To narrow down your search, write down your must-have features and know what you’ll be using your car for ahead of time.
Find out your credit score
The better your credit score is, the better your interest rate will be on your car loan. For that reason, it’s important to check your credit score before car shopping so you know what kind of rate to expect and can budget accordingly.
Test-drive different models
Once you have narrowed down your search to just a few models, take them out for a spin. Test drives make it easy to compare cars and see how each one performs, so it’s imperative that you take one before making a final decision.
If you’re in the market for a new car, give us a call at Wantagh Mazda. Our staff will be happy to help you find the right car for drives in and around Wantagh, New York.
Geneva’s Car Design Night is a gathering of some of the most futuristic concept cars that the automotive industry has to offer. This year was no exception, and the Mazda Vision Coupe concept car stole the show. It was named ‘Concept Car of the Year’ by a panel of judges.
The Mazda Vision Coupe concept made its official debut at the Tokyo Motor Show back in October. It made another appearance at the recent 11th Car Design Night in Geneva and took home ‘Concept Car of the Year.’
“We are delighted once again to have Vision Coupe recognized with a global design award. And it’s truly an honor to have this model, which aims to express the essence of Japanese aesthetics, applauded by some of the world’s top car designers,” said Ikuo Maeda, Mazda’s Managing Executive Officer of Design and Brand Style.
Car Design News, an international car design publication, hosts Car Design Night. The publication puts together an 18-judge panel who vote on their favorite concept cars. Many of the judges work as design directors for major automakers.
The Mazda Vision Coupe winning the ‘Concept Car of the Year’ title follows another major award. The concept car took home ‘Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year’ at the Paris Motor Show not too long ago.
While many concept cars are just for show and never head to production, that isn’t the case for the Mazda Vision Coupe. Ikuo Maeda confirmed that the Vision Coupe’s design will show up in the lineup beginning in 2019.
Baseball fans, get excited and come see the Mazda CX-9 previously owned by famous baseball player Luis Severino. On sale now at Wantagh Mazda is a 2017 CX-9 Signature Edition that was owned by this NY Yankees all-star pitcher, and you can be the next driver behind the wheel.
In 2017, Luis Severino burst onto the scene as one of baseball’s best pitchers. He was named an all-star and was in the running for the coveted Cy Young Award, which is given each year to baseball’s best pitchers. He performed remarkably well throughout the entire Yankee season, finishing the year with 31 starts, a 14-6 record, a 2.98 ERA (earned run average), and 230 strikeouts.
This extra-special 2017 CX-9 has fewer than 5,000 miles on it, and its Signature Trim level means that it comes equipped with numerous high-end, luxurious features. Its exterior is jet black and its interior features premium, auburn leather. The CX-9’s beautiful design led it to make both the Autotrader.com and WardsAuto list of 10 Best Interiors – as well as WardsAuto’s 10 Best Engines list and Car and Driver’s 10 Best SUVs list. This CX-9 comes equipped with an advanced SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing that offers the perfect balance of power and efficiency, boasting 250 horsepower as well as a respectable 26 mpg on the highway*.
Come into Wantagh Mazda to see this valuable, one-of-a-kind 2017 CX-9 and get in the driver’s seat that once belonged to Luis Severino.
The new year promises many things, but unfortunately it is expected that gas prices will rise in 2018. It is predicted that gas prices will rise nationally by approximately 19 cents, putting the national average at $2.57 per gallon. These figures were recently released in GasBuddy’s 2018 Fuel Price Outlook report. GasBuddy is a tech company that runs an app and website that help drivers find the cheapest gas prices in their area, as well as while traveling out on the road.
GasBuddy’s 2018 Fuel Price Outlook report also includes some other worthwhile information. For instance, it does not predict gas prices to hit any record-breaking highs. Moreover, it expects metropolitan areas to see the steepest prices nationally. Large cities such as New York City, Washington D.C., and Chicago are expected to see prices potentially rise above $3, whereas smaller cities such as Cleveland and St. Louis will likely see prices rise but still stay below $3.
You can rely on GasBuddy’s predictions, as they are usually not too far off the mark. In 2017, they predicted a national average of $2.49 per gallon, but luckily the actual national average was $2.39. We at Wantagh Mazda hope that this information helps you better budget out your fuel consumption for 2018.
The Mazda Drive for Good campaign is a yearly charitable event organized by Mazda that lets you be an active participant in giving back to your community. By simply taking a Mazda vehicle out for a test drive at a Mazda dealership this winter, you earn an hour of community service from the Mazda team for a cause in your community.
Plus, if you buy a Mazda during the Drive for Good event, Mazda will donate $150 to the charity of your choice. The Mazda Drive for Good campaign will enjoy its fifth consecutive year this winter, and over the last four years, it has led to over 260,000 hours of community service and raised more than $15 million.
Some of the most popular charities you can donate to through Mazda are St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the American Heart Association, and the Mazda Foundation, but the full list has over 40 charities, largely focused on medical research and helping children.
Mazda Drive for Good’s partnership with NBCUniversal, which has been in effect since 2014, has let the foundation reach many more communities, even if they don’t have a large volunteer force or a nearby Mazda dealership.
At Wantagh Mazda, we’re proud to be part of an organization that is so dedicated to giving back. Give us a call to find out more about the Mazda Drive for Good campaign and our participation in it!
Mazda is a family-centric automaker that makes it a priority to offer vehicles designed for families of all ages and lifestyles. Traveling through the suburbs is a breeze in the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9, but heading into New York City can be cause for concern. That’s why Mazda is packing in more safety features each and every year. Here’s a closer look at some Mazda SUV safety.
The latest addition to Mazda’s safety features comes in the form of Automatic Emergency Braking. The active safety technology will be standard on all new Mazda vehicles by September 2022. The system is currently standard or available on the Mazda CX-3 and CX-5.
Automatic Emergency Braking uses on-board radar and cameras to detect when a crash is imminent. Once a collision is detected, the system warns the drivers and adjusts the brakes for more rapid braking. If the driver fails to respond, the system will apply the brakes on its own.
Mazda SUV safety is growing with more active safety technologies making their way to the road each year. Automatic Emergency Braking improves driver safety by offering the capability to hit the brakes fast to avoid hitting pedestrians and other vehicles.
Federal Crash Test Results
Many consumers put much of their confidence in federal crash tests results. We here at Wantagh Mazda are happy to announce that the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 all earned Top Safety Pick+ Ratings, the highest rating possible, from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
A functional vehicle and luxurious form aren’t mutually exclusive features. In fact, they combine together perfectly in the 2017 Mazda CX-5. The CX-5 proves that a luxury-level crossover doesn’t have to be expensive or lack many of the utility-driven features that drivers love. To drive our point home, here are a few road trip perks of the Mazda CX-5.
The Mazda CX-5 is capable of seating up to five passengers, with plenty of space between them. There’s a total of 103.6 cu ft. of passenger space. No longer will kids be screaming about cramped conditions as you venture into New York City.
Having a full crossover will still leave plenty of room for cargo. With the rear seats up, the Mazda CX-5 offers a generous 30.9 cu ft. of cargo space. With the rear seats folded down, that space nearly doubles with 59.6 cu ft. of space.
There’s little doubt that maneuverability is key, especially when driving through urban areas like the Big Apple. The Mazda CX-5 weighs in at under 3,600 lbs., making it one of the few crossovers with extremely responsive handling.
As for trailering capability, the Mazda CX-5 is capable of towing up to 2,000 lbs. when properly equipped. The standard four-cylinder engine offers a healthy 187 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque.
The automotive market is always on the move. There is still a lot of 2017 to go, but 2018 is creeping up, and there are already some 2018 models available. Mazda has big plans for its 2018 model year. In fact, the 2018 Mazda updates include an all-new three-row crossover called the CX-8 along with updates for the CX-5 and CX-9.
The CX-8 is bound for the Japanese market and will be shorter and narrower than the large CX-9 model sold here in the United States. We Americans like things a bit bigger, which is why Mazda is just sending the CX-8 to Japan. As for the American 2018 CX-9, it should get a few exterior updates including new LED headlights.
One exciting change for the 2018 CX-5 is the addition of a diesel engine option. This engine promises to deliver a fun-to-drive, fuel-saving experience that experienced drivers should love. Additionally, it should have a sportier, more sculpted exterior design.
Here at Wantagh Mazda, we can’t wait to see what the 2018 Mazda model year will bring. We expect to see some of these models start rolling in as early as this fall. Which 2018 Mazda model are you most looking forward to?
Most new cars come with warranties to guarantee satisfaction, including the 2017 Mazda lineup. However, for those looking for added peace of mind, extended vehicle warranties offer coverage on a range of areas, such as vehicle service, tire and wheel coverage, a protection plan, and even comprehensive coverage. Read on to learn more about extended warranties.
One of the most popular warranties is a vehicle service contract, offered by Zurich to keep you prepared for the unexpected. Because regular maintenance is key to retaining your car’s value, you’ll most likely need regular services like oil changes, new tires, and brakes. A service contract can help cover some of these bills. Plus, it really pays off if you have an accident—major or minor—because it can cover the cost of some, if not all, repairs. You choose the level of protection that’s right for you.
Other warranties include tire and wheel coverage. Your tires and wheels are the only vehicle components to come in contact with the road, one reason it’s especially important to maintain them. If you need unexpected repairs or 24/7 roadside assistance, the Road Hazard Tire and Wheel Coverage package is perfect for you.
Finally, you can also choose select or comprehensive protection. The comprehensive plan is perfect for the big stuff—like the powertrain—while select protection covers the same as the comprehensive with added perks. Regardless of which extended warranty you choose, you can rest assured knowing your car, not to mention your wallet, are protected in the long run. Visit Wantagh Mazda to learn more about extended warranties, including the details of each plan.
