There are a few ways to find out if it’s time for an oil change. The easiest way is to look at the color of your vehicle’s oil. You can do this by removing the oil dipstick from the engine. Clean oil is amber in color, while dirty oil is brown or black signaling it’s time for an oil change. Of course, it’s always important to check your car’s oil levels. You can do this wiping the oil stick, reinserting it into the engine, and removing it. On the dipstick, you’ll see three lines that read low, normal, and high. If your oil is measuring low, then its defiantly time to visit our Service Department. In addition to that, if your car’s fuel economy seems to be less than normal, then it might be time swap out that old oil for a new batch.

First and foremost, you’re probably wondering why getting an oil change is so important. Well, your car’s oil serves two major purposes that keep your vehicle running. The first is that it lubricates your engine’s parts, so they can go through their motions seamlessly without grinding or rubbing together. If there isn’t enough oil in your engine, you’ll hear a lot of ruckus under the hood. The second purpose is that it collects dirt and debris from entering the engine. Remember, oil also burns and over time it becomes less effective. If it isn’t changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, or every three to five months, you could be hurting your engine in the long run. Keep in mind, this range is also dependent on the type of oil used, your specific vehicle, and the climate you live in. You can look up this information in your Owner’s Manual or make use of our Ask a Tech form if you have any questions.
My goodness, this was the quickest and most pleasant car buying experience I've ever had. I was in and out of the dealer in about two hours including test drive.
I worked with Todd in Sales and Amin the Sales Manager. Todd was super professional and never pressured me. When I arrived, the car was out front and I was test driving it within minutes. Todd was extremely friendly and low key and went through the features of the Mazda 6 while patiently answering all of my questions.
The experience felt more like I was chatting about a car with a fellow enthusiast, rather than a sales person. Of course, I decided to buy the car and that's when Amin worked quickly and professionally to establish all of the paper work. He is also an extremely kind person and I enjoyed interacting with him greatly.
I just could not believe I had found the exact car I was looking for, and was able to complete the purchase with zero hassles. Granted, I came in prepared, which I recommend to anyone ready to purchase.
Here's the best part, this particular dealer has an agreement with the MVA and can produce a registration and permanent plates on the spot! That's right, I already have my registration and it means I do not have to drive around with temporary tags. I have never seen this before and it was just the icing on the cake.
So thanks Todd and Amin for going above and beyond. One week in, and I am loving the car like crazy.... More

Todd was great! I scheduled a test drive online. He called to confirm and learn more about the cars I was interested in (a new Mazda 3 and a Certified Pre-Owned Mazda 6). When I arrived for the appointment, he had the 3 waiting out front, and brought the 6 around while I was test driving the 3. Seamless, friendly, low pressure service. Ultimately, I ended up going with a VW Golf - nothing wrong with the Mazdas (my girlfriend has a CX-5 that we love), I just really enjoyed the Volkswagen and wasable to find one with a manual transmission. Anyway, even though I ended up not buying from this dealership, I appreciated the respect and professionalism I was shown, and would definitely recommend it!... More

I just bought a CX-30 and the entire experience was fantastic. I started before the car was available (it's a new model) and dealt with Todd Patton. He was very helpful but not pushy. He tailored his contacts to my preferred (email) method and kept me updated on when the model would be available. Once they were in, we had a test drive and he handled the purchase. Of the seven cars I've bought over 2 decades in 3 different states, this was the most pleasant experience yet. Todd was a big part ofthat, and I highly recommend the dealer and Todd in particular if you are considering a Mazda! :-)... More
