2016 Mazda CX-3 AWD (All Wheel Drive) – Winner of MUDFEST 2016

2016 Mazda CX-3 MUDFEST Compact Crossover Winner

Want a vehicle that slogs through the mud, ruts, sand and grades without breaking a sweat? A car perfect for the outdoor-lover’s lifestyle? Well thanks to the Northwest Automotive Press Association and their annual competition, called Mudfest, we now know who is best in the compact crossover class. The association chose the 2016 Mazda CX-3 AWD as the winner for 2016.

While the rugged two day Mudfest tested the cars ability to handle the roughest off-road conditions, that wasn’t enough to win the award. Each vehicle, chosen by their manufacturer, was also evaluated on their interiors, specialty features, and technology compared to others in its class.

The drivers put them through a number of tests on different courses that also judged acceleration, handling, and braking prowess. The Mazda CX-3 did well in every category and proved that Mazdas zoom-zoom is now making its mark in the All-Wheel Drive off-road sector.

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 AWD is now available at Sport Mazda, Central Florida’s leading Mazda dealer. The home of the Lifetime Warranty and NO DEALER FEE for all new Mazdas. Contact one of our sales professionals today or check us out on the Web at www.sportmazdaorlando.com.

We are proud to have been named the DealerRater United States Mazda Dealer of the Year based on over 3000 reviews from customers with an average rating of 4.9 out of 5. Visit Sport Mazda today and experience car buying as you have always wanted.

4 Reasons Why Switching to Nitrogen Protects Your Tires

Sport Mazda understands that to many motorists, checking and maintaining tire pressures is not the first thing they think of when maintaining their car.  As long as the tires look about right they don’t worry about them until the TPMS monitor light comes on. Then it is a short stop at the filling station to put air in the low tire and on their way.  But have you ever thought that your tires may be costing you money.  We did and we now offer our owners a better way to save, Nitrogen.

Proper inflation is the key to tire maintenance. It improves tire longevity, cornering, ride quality, stability and very dramatically, fuel mileage.  For years pure Nitrogen has been used in commercial and military aircraft, Formula One and NASCAR cars, heavy-duty loaders and high-risk vehicles, to insure proper inflation that produces longer tire life and less expense.

These are four great reasons to think about putting Nitrogen in your tires.
  • Compressed Air-filled tires inflate and deflate based on temperature. That’s why your tires may look low in the morning and fuller in the afternoon heat.  Nitrofill (the brand of Nitrogen used at Sport Mazda) is not affected by temperature so that your tires always stay the same. Less fluctuation, less wear on your tires, better tire life, saves you money. (Almost 50% longer)
  • Tests by Clemson University say Nitrogen inflation in passenger cars tires can improve tire life while improving the fuel economy of the vehicle.
  • Goodyear, Michelin, Bridgestone and many other manufacturers encourage the use of Nitrogen in tires.
  • Nitrogen-filled tires maintain a better footprint on the road and improve handling, stability and stopping, making for a better and safer ride.
Still not convinced, check out the video above and the articles below.  Then make an appointmentat the Sport Mazda Service Center to get Nitrofill for your tires.  Low cost, big savings.

“My expectations were blown away” at Sport Mazda Orlando

The bar has been raised. At the Don Mealey’s Sport Mazda Service Center in Orlando, Central Florida Mazda owners have been ditching the quick oil and lube franchises that plague Orange Blossom Trail in favor of professionally trained technicians. But it’s not the expertise of the technicians that make Sport Mazda special; it’s the dedicated customer service our Mazda Experts provide. The following messages are from happy Sport Mazda service customers on our DealerRater.com profile:

“Saturday morning, I brought in the Mazda3 for an oil change. Did not have an appointment, was not expecting anything special. My expectations were blown away. Donny took me in and had the service performed in record time. Then, unbeknownst to me, the detail on my car was completed and when I drove out the lot was in a brand spanking clean car. I felt like a millionaire, and could not believe how great the service experience at this dealership was.” – SuperService1 on 5/19/2014

“I loved the customer service I received from Donny. He was running up and down making sure every customer is taken care of and the services are done in a timely matter. He personally took me to the cashier so I can complete my payment and everything was just smooth! My first of many other visits!!!” – Madirjade on 5/13/2014

“Jeremy was very great and friendly. My car came out of service brand new! I loved it and look forward to coming back again! Thank You Jeremy and the service team at Don Mealey’s Mazda.” – KassandraNunez on 5/1/2014

“Outstanding as expected! Customer Service is exceptional, please do not change! Again, I will continue to recommend this service department. Even to my friends who do not own a Mazda and didn't purchase their vehicle from this dealership.” – deone96 on 4/22/2014

"Luis was a great customer service oriented sales man.
It has to be my best experience in buying a car I've ever had and I've been buying cards for 20+ years.
He really listened to everything we were looking for and worked for us to get it done.
We so appreciate his natural skills at making us feel important and going above and beyond to make our experience wonderful.
He was at every moment of the purchase experience and has continued to take care of us after the sale was finalized.
If you're looking for a car at Don Mealey Sport Mazda, ask for Luis."

“I had a wonderful first time buyer experience. Alfredo Gonzalez was very helpful, patient and polite. The car I came in to see was already sold but Alfredo was able to find something else that ended up being exactly what I was looking for. We kind of lucked out with what we found but Alfredo also made sure we were given a price close to the price of the car we originally came in to buy. Overall, it was an excellent experience and I'm very happy with the service that was provided! Would shop here again!”

"Beth Alvarez was the main person to make my sale super possible. But everyone I spoke to put their bit in to make it happen. It was my first buy at a Dealership ever and I looked at multiple dealers in the area, and came to the conclusion that Sport Mazda is the place to be in my opinion. They treat you like family. They really work to get you the best deal. If you were raised in a close, tight-knit family like I was, then you tend to really see that aspect at Sport Mazda. I could not be happier with the price I got my Miata for, and the real dedication of everyone there to make the buy happen. By the way, I love Juan Cruz, the financial guy. :D He was so nice and explained what gap insurance was, which I had no idea, so thank you. I learn something new everyday! Will definitely refer and buy from here again, so Beth, Jason, Juan, Josh and Kyle aren't allowed to quit. You're stuck with me forever. Lol"
