Badgerland Miata Club Fall Colors Ride
Here at Wisconsin’s number one Mazda dealer, we’ve got plenty to celebrate as fall approaches and summer winds to a close. It’s true that outdoor cooking will become a memory and days by the lake will cease – at least for the rest of the year – but fall brings plenty for Wisconsin motorists to look forward to: cooler afternoons, layered clothes, and of course colorful drives to see all the gorgeous fall colors our state has to offer. And what better way to enjoy the bright leaves than in a Miata with other owners enjoying the day? Today we’ll tell you about our local Badgerland Miata Club Fall Colors Ride, along with how to get involved with the club if you’re not already and about another ride you can get in on this autumn if you act fast!

How to tell if you need an alignment
Some of those among us know quite a bit about cars and how things should feel, so when something’s a bit off they tune into it right away and can work to correct the problem. It certainly isn’t the case for all of us though, so if you’ve ever been in a situation – perhaps now – where you’re wondering how to tell if you need an alignment on the wheels of your vehicle, today’s post is designed to help you make that determination! We’ll also tell you what to do if you do end up needing one, and where you can snag some savings on the procedure (we assume if you’re unsure what to look for you’re probably not going to attempt to correct it yourself once you find out there’s an issue)! So first, here’s how you can tell: (more…)

Mazda CX-3 Release Date
UPDATE: We now have additional information about the Mazda CX-3 Release — Click here to see our latest post.
Whether you’ve been a fan of crossovers for a while now or you’re still on the fence, there seems to be little doubt these days about their staying power. Families across the country turn to these spacious and capable models for an alternative to the large SUV and truck options that might be a little more hefty than what these folks are looking for in a vehicle. For many, crossovers hit that just-right note between a comfortable and efficient sedan and a larger vehicle with more space and advanced capability options. Mazda is no stranger to the crossover game, with the popular CX-5 and CX-9 models offering drivers both a smaller and larger option, but it may be about time to offer a few more options. If the CX-5 is a little bigger than what you want, you’ll want to pay attention to the very real possibility of a Mazda CX-3 release date, and if you wanted something between the CX-5 and CX-9, here’s hoping that rumor of an impending CX-7 is true!
