Mazda is again collaborating with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, American Red Cross and the American Heart Association with MAZDA’s”DRIVE FOR GOOD EVENT.” drive-for-good

Mazda will make a charitable donation for each new Mazda vehicle sold this Holiday Season. Last years “DRIVE FOR GOOD” event was wonderful. Mazda had the opportunity to donate over $2,700,000 to charitable institutions like Philadelphia Children’s Hospital,  St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, American Red Cross and the American Heart Association; touching lives where and when they need it most. Since money is not always the answer, Mazda also donated work time time.

This year Mazda has rolled up it’s sleeves and committed itself to increase the amount donated for each new Mazda by an additional 50%. “We are excited to have increased the donation amount for the 2014 Mazda Drive for Good charity event,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. “Mazda donated more than $2.7 million last year and while we know the charity partners were appreciative, we always want to do more. However, no Mazda charity event would be complete without rolling up our sleeves and lending a helping hand by donating an hour of charitable service for every test drive.”

The Mazda Drive for Good event will run from November 21, 2014 through January 2, 2015. In addition, Mazda Dealer Marketing Groups around the nation also have the opportunity to select a local charity that enables new Mazda owners to select a charity option closer to home.


Once Again, The Mazda3 Earns the ALG 2014 Highest Residual Value Award!

At Maple Shade and Turnersville Mazda, South Jerseys premier Mazda Dealers. We are excited and proud to share the latest accomplishment of the Mazda3 Sports Sedan and Hatchback! 

For the 2nd year in a row the Mazda3 was determined to have the Highest Residual Value in the Compact Car Segment.

This is a true recognition of the value the Mazda3 offer our customers. ALG the industry authority on vehicle values and depreciation acknowledges Mazda’s commitment to Quality, Value and Economy! ALG has Recognized “the Mazda3 as one of the best all-around vehicles in the Compact segment”. It’s earned itself critical acclaim by topping “Best Car” lists and receiving “Car Of The Year “ nods. 

Mazda as a brand was also just ranked 3rd among all manufactures in vehicle reliability by Consumer Reports. Vehicle Reliability reflects quality and cost of ownership all of which are key factors in determining future value. 

Why Is Residual Value Important? 

Residual value is the projected market or resale value of your vehicle at a given time in the future. ALG, the auto industries authority strives to determine this value through careful study of the competition in each segment, historical vehicle performance and industry trends. Vehicle quality, reliability, production levels relative to demand, and pricing and marketing strategies represent key factors that all impact ALG’s residual value forecasts, or resale value, for the vehicle. 

The  residual value or projected resale value tells the buyer what they can expect as a future return on their vehicle purchase. For example if you purchased a vehicle for $20,000 with a projected resale value of 50% = $10,000 after 3years and maintained it as scheduled for the 3years then the buyer can expect to be able to sell it for $10000.
