2020 is a big year for Mazda because it hit an impressive milestone – its100th anniversary! From its astounding history, supportive customers, and popular vehicles, we’re excited for the next one hundred years to come. Mazda definitely has a personal story to tell and we have decided to share it with you below. After, stop into Mazda of Elk Grove to find out more and check out the features on its newest models that make this brand a fan favorite!

Features

History

Mazda has quite an interesting story. Known today as Mazda Motor Corporation, it was founded by Jujiro Matsuda. From a young age, Jujiro was dedicated to the machine industry. By the time he was 31, he founded Matsuda Seisakusho – an exclusive patented Matsuda pump. When he was in his mid 40s, he decided to visit Hiroshima again and founded Hiroshima Seisakusho. Then, two years later, he joined forces with Toyota Cork Kogyo Co., Ltd. He became president, but the company was later destroyed by a fire. This just fueled his passion further as he rebuilt the company and gave it a new name—Toyo Kogyo Co., Ltd. Finally, he created a business in three-wheeled truck manufacturing in 1923. Since these were more affordable and accessible, he made them his focus. Eventually, they were brought to market and renamed to “Matsuda Go,” after his family. With their success and popularity, Mazda became a household name.

Popular Vehicles

The legendary Mazda vehicles go back all the way to the 1930s. With models such as the ever-popular Cosmo that’s still being showed at Auto shows, to the MX-5 Miata Roadster, and the unmistakable Mazda3, these vehicles have made quite a statement. But why are these vehicles so popular? Well, it could be that they’re fuel-efficient, practical, and that they exemplify the KODO: Soul of Motion design. Executive Officer of Mazda Mortors Ikuo Maeda says, “’For everyone connected to Mazda, a car is not a means of getting from A to B, but actually a partner you can rely on and that inspires you.’” It goes beyond just looking good, but creating a powerful message and consistency. Maeda sums up his philosophy by mentioning, “It’s about creating cars that embody the dynamic beauty of life – cars that visually suggest different expressions of this energy.” No matter which model you elect to go with, you can’t wrong as each is crafted with this idea in mind!

Mazda Events

So, where can you see some of the older models all the way to the newest Mazda CX-30? As mentioned before, the annual Auto Show is one of the best places to witness what these vehicles have to offer. You might consider the largest Auto Show, which takes place in Chicago, IL every year, as well as Los Angeles, and New York. Of course, you can always visit your local Mazda dealership, Mazda of Elk Grove, and chat with our staff about the vehicles and even take some out for a test drive. This way, you familiarize yourself before deciding on a purchase or lease. Another great place to get information is social media, whether it’s Facebook or Instagram or the Mazda USA website, these pages are always ready to relay the newest information with its customers and fans. Plus, what better place to find out when your favorite Mazda cars are getting a redesign, how they handle the road, and if a never-before-seen vehicle is coming to the market?

I had a great experience at Elk Grove Mazda recently. Juan, Fritz, and Chris were all very helpful and communicative. I ended up buying out my lease and I feel they all went above and beyond to make sure I walked out happy with my decision. I would definitely come back here in the future.

We bought a Mazda CX5 from this dealership in 2015. We chose the option with the maintenance plan and it has been the best decision. They always fit you into their schedule based around what works best for you. They offer a great environment while you are waiting for your car, I always bring my laptop to work while I wait. They never try to up-sell you on anything that you don't need and they go out of their way to help you get the best deals. I have worked with Billy for the past two years and he has helped me get an amazing deal on a new set of tires and has helped me with any other issues that have come up. I went in today and as soon as he saw that I would be waiting longer than normal, he offered a loaner car for the day. This service is just above and beyond and I would highly recommend anyone to this Mazda location. Ask for Billy!

Time and Time Again

After buying my car here a few years ago, I've had my fair share of repairs on my Mazda3. But time and time again, EJ and the service department have always been the greatest. Every time I go to get work done on my car, I have never had a negative experience. They really take care of you here and care about you and your car. They make sure you have the best care and customer service around. I don't take my car anywhere else because I know they will definitely take care of me and my car. Thank you so much EJ for all your help!

I had such a great experience at the Mazda of Elk Grove! I worked with Nick, he was super friendly and very helpful. He was able to help me find a car I love for a price I could afford. I honestly thought I’d be at the dealership all day but it was pretty fast and everyone is super friendly there. I also worked with Deannah when I was signing my papers and she was also veryy kind. They both worked very hard to get me the best deal possible and I couldn’t be any happier!! Overall great experience! 10/10 This was also my first time buying a car & they makes it super easy!

Friendly and accomodating service!

Garrett was a complete joy to work with. After having a not so great experience at another local Mazda dealer, coming to Mazda of Elk Grove was a breath of fresh air. Garrett listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered. He was able to get all my info through email and text and every the paperwork ready to go when I got there. I was only at the dealer for about an hour signing. I will not only recommend this dealer to my friends and family, I will be a repeat customer.

Excellent Buying Experience

My experience with Fritz was 100% positive from start to finish. From the time we drove onto the lot to test driving a couple of models to the negotiations, to finance and finally to the special, undivided attention I received during delivery of my new car I never felt pressured or rushed. I felt as though I was his only customer. Would highly recommend Elk Grove Mazda and definetely ask for Fritz.

EXCELLENT first time buying experience!

Mazda of Elk Grove has five-star quality customer service! :) A salesman (Elias) immediately greeted me and genuinely attended to me. I was able to wander the lot and test drive my desired car with no questions asked (with Wade)! After the test drive, Garrett sat down with me and answered ALL of my questions with a patient demeanor and willingness to help me get my desired car at the desired price. There was absolutely NO pressure with Garrett. Throughout the whole process, he had open and honest communication and was extremely attentive. He was easy to talk to and a real personable salesman to work with. I couldn't have asked for a better first time buying experience! I highly recommend Garrett as your next go-to salesman! :)

The people make the difference!

After visiting several dealerships and salespeople in the area, it was refreshing to work with Fritz. He was about as casual and laid back as you expect a close friend to be, but went out of his way to locate a vehicle that fit our description and put together a deal that worked for us. If it was not for his hard work, we may have wound up with one of the other cars on our list. But that hard work and dedication to customer service did not stop with Fritz. We found Steve in finance to also have our best interests at heart. He was able to finance the deal at a better rate than our pre-approved auto loan was offering and he made the dreary work of paperwork and signatures less of a chore. The vehicle was delivered on a busy Saturday morning, fully detailed and ready to go. Fritz came out went over some basics for the car so that we had a head start with some of the new features. It was a nice touch! Just goes to show you that a dealership and its inventory is only as valuable as it employees!

Excellent buying experience.

I was referred to this dealership and specifically Garrett due to great customer service. I went on to the lot looking for the car I thought I wanted, after driving the same car for over 10 years. Garrett took the time to show me around and ask questions that led to a car that actually fit more of my needs. His easy going nature takes the already heightened pressure of buying a car down. He worked to get me the price I desired including a car with a bigger package/more bells and whistles. He then took the time as we waited for finance (it was very busy the night I bought my car with three other people buying cars at the same time. Says a lot for the dealership!) to explain little things about the car as well as things I could add if desired. I highly recommend this dealership and specifically Garrett. Not only will you get a great car but your experience will be less stressful and you will walk away knowing if you need anything for your car you will be taken care of.

Great experience thank you also Matt and Steve

Both Matt and Steve ( and Fritz on another review) were truly great to work with. Matt was patient and answered all of the many questions I had. He was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience easy. Likewise, Steve was so helpful, professional and made all of the finance part an easy process for me. Thank you both so much!

Awesome experience!

After extensive research about what new car I wanted and what dealership I wanted to buy from I finally choose Elk Grove Mazda. I had been researching SUV's and dealerships for quite awhile on-line. I didn't need a new car but wanted a new one so I waited for quite awhile before visiting but I knew the special financing was ending soon so I righted I better go. I 1st visited the dealership last Tuesday and after looking at the CX-5's for awhile I was greeted by Elias Gonzalez. From the beginning it was an awesome car buying experience. Elias knew I drove a lot as my 2012 Infiniti had 82,000 miles so he took me on an extra log test drive so I could really get a feel for the CX-5 to see if it was really for me or not. After our test drive it was completely up to me if we wanted to talk numbers and at no point did I ever few pressured into coming inside. I loved the car so of course we went inside and played the numbers game. We couldn't agree and I left but at all times I felt respected unlike many dealerships. I've purchased many cars and have never had an experience quite like this with no pressure and totally up to me. A few days later I received a follow up e-mail from Elias to see if I was still interested. After messaging back and forth we finally agreed on numbers and terms which brings me to this past Saturday. I went to sign papers and was impressed again! After Elias filled out the initial paperwork again since it had been a few days I met with Steve Wray one of the Finance Managers and he was awesome as well. He was very knowledgeable about the car business and we had great conversation as I signed the paperwork. I've purchased many new cars and I have to say this was my best experience so far!! I really appreciate the no pressure sales environment and the fact that they really seem to want what's best for the consumer!! I would definitely recommend Elk Grove Mazda to my family and friends!! If your ever in the market for a new car you should check them out. I've had my new CX-5 for 2 days now and absolutely love it!

Very informative and patient staff
