Certified Pre-owned Vehicles Paramus NJ

mazda-certified-pre-ownedNew cars are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get. That is, unless you’re buying a Mazda from Mazda of Lodi. They offer the best Certified Pre-owned Vehicles near Paramus NJ, vehicles which have more benefits than you were probably ever aware of. Let’s take a look at what it takes for a pre-owned vehicle to get the stamp of approval.

It starts with a 150 point inspection. The interior, exterior, transmission, brakes, engine, heating and cooling are all rigorously examined to make sure they are all of optimum performance. There are 28 checkpoints under the hood alone, and that doesn’t even include all the checkpoints on the engine. If the inspection turns up a problem, it is tended to by experts certified in dealing with Mazda. They use only genuine Mazda parts to make sure every vehicle looks and performs like a new Mazda.

2014 Mazda3 vs 2014 Mazda6

2014-mazda-3

The sportier Mazda3 will be available in four or five doors.

The new 2014 Mazda3 is expected to go on sale sometime next month, and customers are wondering if it’s worth the wait. In anticipation for its release we decided to compare it to another Mazda that has already hit the streets. We wanted to look at the difference between 2014 Mazda3 and 2014 Mazda6. We found that the specs are pretty similar, so it’s all pretty much a matter of preference. Without further ado, Mazda of Lodi presents: the 2014 Mazda3 vs 2014 Mazda6. (more…)

Improve Your Gas Mileage with These Four Simple Methods

Best Ways to Improve Gas Mileage

fuel-gauge-increase-mileage

Use simple methods to increase the time it takes your gauge to go from full to empty.

We have recently been looking at ways that Mazda has raised fuel efficiency in their vehicles. Mazda has been able to provide their vehicles with some of the highest fuel ratings currently available. However, those ratings are dependent on the way that you drive. Therefore, we at Mazda of Lodi have decided to share some of the best ways to improve gas mileage.

One of the biggest methods of increasing mileage is to simply drive proactively and be conscious of what you’re doing behind the wheel. If you’re braking hard and accelerating rapidly, you’re in jeopardy of decreasing your overall mileage by up to 37 percent. Attempt to use your break and gas pedal only when you need to. Yes, that means slowing down, which is another effective method of raising your mileage. (more…)

Find Out How the 2014 Mazda6 is Changing the Game

2014 Mazda6 in New Jersey

2014-mazda6-game-changer

The 2014 Mazda6 is capable of 40 mpg highway thanks in part to the engine’s SKYACTIV technology.

You can’t call a car “the game changer” and just leave it at that. With a name like that, you have to be able to back up your claim. Not surprisingly, backing up the new Mazda6 is child’s play. It is a Mazda after all. Everything down to the paint color was considered when making the 6. It requires a three-step painting process to produce a dark bold red that Mazda has called “Soul Red.” It has us sold. We’re going to let you in on a little secret, but first let’s look at what the 2014 Mazda6 has to offer.

Normally we save the best for last, but it’s hard to contain our excitement about the fuel rating of the 6. The 2.5-liter 184 horse SKYACTIV engine has been estimated at 40 mpg highway. The fact that this is a fuel-only car is almost unbelievable. The SKYACTIV engines are really killing it for Mazda. The technology is a large part of the reason that Mazda is putting up these insane fuel-economy ratings. We’ll touch on SKYACTIV later. For now let’s stick to the Mazda6. (more…)

Mazda i-Eloop Technology

Mazda-i-ELOOP-system

The innovative i-Eloop system alone increases fuel economy by ten percent.

Mazda of Lodi in New Jersey is proud to announce that Mazda has introduced yet another system to improve the fuel economy of their top-performing vehicles. First it was SkyActiv engine technology. Now it’s the Mazda i-Eloop technology, a brake energy regeneration system which has increased the fuel economy of Mazda vehicles by ten percent.

The system has three functions, the first of which  is regeneration, which takes kinetic energy normally lost when your car decelerates, and converts it to electricity. That electricity is then put into storage and saved for future use. The third function is to use the energy. It is not used to power the car but rather to power the electrical equipment, headlights, climate control and audio system. (more…)

The 2014 Mazda CX-5 Sets the Bar for Crossover SUVs

2014 Mazda CX-5

2014-mazda-cx-5-exterior

The Mazda CX-5 offers a winning combination of superior storage and an unbelievably high fuel rating for a crossover SUV.

Not every vehicle can do it all. If you want more storage you buy a bigger vehicle. If you want better fuel efficiency you buy a smaller vehicle. But what do you do if you want both? You may be surprised to know that you have two options. The first is to buy two vehicles. It’s really quite a simple solution. That is if you can afford to do that. The second option makes getting everything that you want even easier. It is the 2014 Mazda CX-5. (more…)

2014 Mazda6 Clifton NJ

2014-Mazda-6

The Mazda6 has undergone quite the transformation in the last eleven years.

By now you probably know that since we got the 2014 Mazda6 near Clifton NJ, the game has been changed for midsize sedans. The 6 blows many of its competitors out of the water, but we’re not going to be looking at the competitors today. Instead we thought that we would look at a vehicle that has been on dry land for quite a while. It’s the 2003 Mazda6 which was released eleven years ago. That fact makes this comparison an entertaining one. Let’s just say the Mazda6 has come a long way. (more…)

Mazda’s SKYACTIV Engines Producing Fuel Ratings Similar to a Hybrid

Mazda SkyActiv Technology

SkyActiv technology is helping to provide better fuel-efficiency than any other fuel-only engines on the market.

We all know first-hand that gas prices can be damaging to our wallets, and it isn’t likely that prices will drop any time soon. In response to this issue, car manufacturers are constantly working to find ways of increasing fuel efficiency. Honda’s response was what they call Earth Dreams technology. Though it has been effective in increasing fuel efficiency, no efforts have been as successful as Mazda SkyActiv technology. It makes us proud to be selling these environment-friendly vehicles at Mazda of Lodi.

SkyActiv engines have put up record numbers in fuel-only mpg ratings including 40 mpg highway for both the 2014 Mazda3 and 2014 Mazda6. Even the 2014 Mazda CX-5, a crossover SUV, is estimated at 35 mpg highway with a manual transmission. That number is higher than most smaller-sized sedans available on the market today. (more…)
