Spring Car Maintenance Tips You Don’t Want to Skip

springWinter is coming to a close and that means your vehicle is probably looking like it’s seen better days. Between the salt stains and sludgy hubcaps, winter does a number on vehicles both big and small. But thankfully the time for spring car maintenance is here, and we’ve got some quick tips for getting your hot rod hot again.

  1. Salt isn’t just ugly, it’s damaging. Salt causes rust, and the sooner you get all of it washed of your vehicle, the better. When you take your car to the wash, make sure the location has sprayers that concentrate on the undercarriage.
  2. Check the wiper blades. You should be changing out your wiper blades around every six months if you want to maintain optimum performance and visibility. Don’t get caught in an April shower without effective wiper blades!
  3. Finally, get your alignment checked. Winter is breeding season for potholes, which can destroy your suspension and wheel alignment.

All in all, spend one weekend afternoon sometime in March paying attention to your vehicle, and your spring car maintenance will be complete!




Mazda Dealerships Earn Edmunds.com Five Star Dealer Awards

car shoppingCar buying is typically a stressful, and that’s just a universal truth. That’s probably why Edmunds.com set out to find dealerships that make it as easy and convenient as possible for their customers to get their new car and drive away feeling taken care of.

2016 marked the fourth annual Five Star Dealer Awards from Edmunds.com and a total of 23 Mazda dealerships across the country received the top award. These awards aren’t handed out unless the dealership has fully exhibited a strong commitment to excellent customer service and satisfaction. A single dealership must also receive no less than 20 perfect five star reviews over the course of the previous two years on Edmunds.com.

While Gossett Hyundai Mazda Mitsubishi was not on Edmunds.com exclusive Five Star Dealer Awards list (we’ll get ‘em next year!), we wanted to take the time to recognize our fellow Mazda dealers out there who are doing amazing work.

Plus, we want to assure our customers that we will strive to do whatever we can to earn their business, their trust, and their five-star reviews.
