Five Mazdas. Five Top Safety Pick Plus Ratings

Mazda CX5

Safty Pick Art
Our engineers work tirelessly with the goal of creating the most eye-catching, exhilarating and safe vehicles on the road. And now, we want to celebrate them for something truly special.

The Mazda CX-5 was just named a 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus, the independent organization's
highest-possible safety rating.

In fact, the CX-5 has earned the highest possible rating from IIHS every year since 2012, and this year, every 2017 Mazda vehicle tested by the IIHS has been rated
a Top Safety Pick Plus.

Paint and Fabric Protection Special $100 Discount

For the month of August and September 2017, present this email with your purchase of a vehicle from Crippen and receive $100 discount on our Paint and Fabric Protection.

Be sure to ask our Business department at the dealership about the benefits of having your vehicles interior and exterior protected from paint fading and unexpected interior spills.

When you think about what attracts most customers to vehicles a very common response is the "appearance." So why not protect what drew you to the vehicle in the first place further? Our paint and fabric coat is a silicon/oil based treatment that is performed on the interior and exterior of your vehicle. The exterior is treated with the oil based portion which acts as a "locking" mechanism on the showroom shine of the vehicle and keeps such items as acid rain, bird droppings, and tree sap from seeping in and causing decay on the paint. The interior is treated with the silicon based chemical which acts as an oil based (ex: soda, coffee, etc..) stain deterrent on the carpets and seats. A one-time coat on a new vehicle is good for 5 years and a one-time coat on a pre-owned vehicle is good for 3 years.

Must be presented at time of purchase.

Common Suspension Problems

What are some common suspension problems?

Just about any suspension component can be damaged or worn out from years of wear and tear. Here are four common issues you're likely to encounter:

1. Poor wheel alignment: The wheels have to be pointed in the right direction and aligned for toe-in, camber and caster. If they aren't, your steering won't be centered when you're going straight and tire wear will increase. Wheels get knocked out of alignment by potholes and curbs.

2. Shock absorbers: When they wear out, you should notice more bouncing after a bump and a whole lot of shaking driving on rough roads because they can't keep the tires planted on the pavement.

3. Springs: These are what hold the weight of the car, and as they wear they can sag or break. If your car is on level ground but one corner is lower than the others, that's a sign of a damaged spring.

4. Ball joints: These are pivot points that attach the suspension to the wheels, and they absorb some of the shock from up-down movement and rotate as the steering angle changes. They need replacing when you can hear them squeaking or creaking
