Be Safe in Your Used Car Over the Winter – Part 2

winter drivingSo, really when we talk about remaining safe in your used cars from Tulsa OK near Cleveland in the winter, we understand that how much of a concern or to what extent you must go varies greatly on your climate and place of residence.  If, for example, you live in Florida, chances are good you will never really need to carry a blanket with you in the car.  We are really talking about those of us who live in the Midwest, or anywhere to the north as these are the territories that experience the worst in snow and ice storms.  The Midwest not as bad as the northern states, of course, but you still might want to read on since we can get our fair share of snow and sleet.

Here are some excellent points made on Edmunds website about winter safety in your new or used cars in Tulsa OK, “First, take inventory of your car’s year-round safety gear. Make sure you have a set of jumper cables, a phone charger and a flashlight in your car. Consider including something like the LifeHammer, too, in case the unthinkable happens and you get trapped inside the vehicle. Also, don’t forget to make sure that your spare tire is properly inflated, if your car is equipped with one.”  The above things can benefit you in any climate.  If you are in a rough winter area, then you will want to add some stuff to the list of used car essentials, mentioned in the final paragraph below.

“A warm blanket can make a big difference, as can packaged nuts or energy bars for emergency sustenance. When it’s really cold, hand warmers provide quick relief. A shovel gives you a fighting chance of digging yourself out of a snowdrift, while a bag of sand or kitty litter can be poured in the path of your wheels to aid traction. Signal flares maximize visibility if you’re stuck on the side of the road; likewise, a brightly colored scarf or bandana can be affixed to a disabled vehicle to indicate that something’s amiss.”  The thing is, you can actually buy ready made kits if you don’t want to think about it and some of them are really affordable.  I think the one I put in my used car in Tulsa OK near Cleveland cost me less than $30 and has all of the essentials.

The Mazda5 Moves Out of the Lineup Next Year

goodbyeMazda is always working to make the best business decisions when it comes to their lineup and their customers’ needs and wants.  “While Mazda continues to expand its model lineup with new editions like the 2016 CX-3 subcompact crossover, it’s hard to justify keeping aging models around that continue to decline in sales. For the 2016 model year, Mazda has made the decision to discontinue the Mazda5, and as of now, there are no plans to bring a replacement to the U.S. market.”

Although, there is a rumor online that says otherwise regarding the Mazda Mazda5 in Tulsa OK near Owasso this year.  “The Mazda5 minivan is now gone from the US market, but it’s coming back here for 2016, perhaps for the last time. Based on the previous Mazda3 platform, the Mazda5 shuns any SKYACTIV components and keeps its old 157-horsepower 2.5-litre engine. Both the GS and GT trims offer the choice of a 6-speed manual (the only one you’ll find in a minivan) or 5-speed automatic. This vehicle’s best attribute remains its practical 6-seat interior, accessible through wide-sliding doors.”

Whether it is true or not, I ask you not to fret, considering you are a Mazda5 fan, make your way to the used Mazda car section at your local Tulsa OK preowned Mazda dealership near Owasso where you are sure to snag yourself a knock-down deal on a used Mazda5 in Tulsa.  Who really needs brand new anyway?  Why not save some money on the initial depreciation and get yourself a killer deal new Owasso, one that you will never be able to snag on a brand new Mazda Mazda5?  The Mazda Mazda5 minivan has an excellent place on the minivan scene, it simply didn’t yield the sales results necessary for Mazda to keep it around.  But, if you are a smaller family that craves simplicity buy three rows of seating, then, by all means grab a 2015 Mazda5 while you can, or even better, check out the used Mazda lineup at your Tulsa Mazda5 dealer near Owasso today!

Run This Mazda Car For a Test Drive

To set itself apart from its tight competition, the Mazda3 satisfies the economic factors while adding bonuses that people love, such as performance and styling.’”  This is crucial in our opinion at your Tulsa Mazda Car Dealership near Bixby.  After all, people want a great deal, but they are not looking for cheap either.  Saving money is one thing, but having a new car that doesn’t drive like you saved a bunch of money is really the way to go in out opinion.  This is how you could describe the Mazda3 cars this year.

The report continues: “Mazda3 holds its own in security-related measures and completely dominates in the more leverageable categories, including freedom, self-esteem and harmony,” and concludes that “performance and styling contribute greatly to excitement and individuality” of Mazda3.  This is a definite truth when it comes to these new Mazda cars at your local new and used car dealership in Tulsa.  You will need to call your Tulsa Car Dealership and schedule a test drive as soon as you can in order to fully experience these things for yourself.  If you decide these cars are right for you, then you will need to choose between the 155-horsepower, 2.0-liter or 184-horsepower, 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G engines in addition to six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
