Mazda is one of the few automakers which has managed to combine affordability and high performance. Mazda’s Brand Essence is “Celebrate Driving” and over the years, it’s high-quality array of SUVs, sedans, hatchbacks, and trucks have consistently combined style, performance, and economy.
Mazda’s Early Beginnings
Mazda began as “The Toyo Cork Kogyo Company” in 1920 in Hiroshima, Japan. It initially used the name “Mazda” for its first three-wheeled truck, built in 1931. The word “Mazda” was chosen because it was the name of the Zoroastrian god of good and light. Development of the first Mazda passenger vehicle began in the late 1930s. However, this car never went into production since the company focused on helping Japan with the war effort. It wasn’t until 1960, that the first Mazda 2-door passenger car came into production– the R360 coupe. In the 1960s, it also introduced its first pickup, the B-Series 1500, as well as its first rotary-engine vehicle, the 110S Cosmo Sport.
Exporting The Mazda Vehicle Philosophy
In 1970, Mazda began exporting its vehicles to the USA. It soon gained a reputation as an automaker that produced cars that were affordable and fun to drive. During the ‘70s, the world was also introduced to the RX-3, RX-4 and the iconic rotary-powered RX-7 sports car.
Mazda’s Present and “Human-Centric” Future
During the new millennium, Mazda has begun investing in new development. Its new models like the Mazda 2 and CX-9, RX-8 and Mazdaspeed have attracted a new generation of buyers. Its goal is to produce “cars that combine the joy of driving with outstanding environmental and safety performance.” Mazda believes that modern cars should be fuel-efficient, fun to drive and above all affordable. Additionally, its new design philosophy is based on what Mazda calls the “Human-Centric Approach” which aims to design cars that adapt to the driver and not the other way around, as it’s the case with most automobile manufacturers. The vehicles that are designed using this approach should have a comfortable driving environment that enables drivers to accurately feel their car’s response and smoothly operate it.

Recommended Service Schedule
In order to maintain your Mazda vehicle in peak performance, you must service it regularly. Following your Mazda servicing schedule, you will not only ensure that it runs well but also maintain your manufacturer warranty and resale value since interested buyers normally want to examine your vehicle’s service history.
Mazda recommends that you service your vehicle every year or every 20,000 kilometres (whichever comes first). Naturally, how frequently you need to service your vehicle can also depend on how you drive and where you drive. Our technicians can recommend the best service schedule specific to you. It should be noted that driving in towns with traffic can put more strain on your vehicle, therefore it is best to service it more frequently.
Additionally, you need to keep in mind that there some items, such as brake fluid, that age through time as well as mileage. Consequently, an annual service, regardless of mileage, is important to deal with these and ensure your car is running in top condition.
