The car pack even gets very quirky with the 1980 Subaru Brat GL. There’s at least one car here to grab the interest of any fan of the game.

Mazda CX-3 almost ready for LA Show

Published by Mazda Blogs on December 19th, 2014

Filed under: , ,

The Mazda CX-3 is just days away from its unveiling at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, but elsewhere in the world, the Japanese brand still has the compact crossover disguised for testing. These spy shots aren’t too camouflaged though, and when combined with the previous teaser image, they give a pretty clear idea what the new model will look like.

A car writer’s year in new sheetmetal [w/video]

I figured it would be interesting to parse the figures and quantify my year in cars in a way I’d never done before.

Christmas is only a week away. The New Year is just around the corner. As 2014 draws to a close, I’m not the only one taking stock of the year that’s we’re almost shut of.

Depending on who you are or what you do, the end of the year can bring to mind tax bills, school semesters or scheduling dental appointments. For me, for the last eight or nine years, at least a small part of this transitory time is occupied with recalling the cars I’ve driven over the preceding 12 months.

Since I started writing about and reviewing cars in 2006, I’ve done an uneven job of tracking every vehicle I’ve been in, each year. Last year I made a resolution to be better about it, and the result is a spreadsheet with model names, dates, notes and some basic facts and figures.

Armed with this basic data and a yen for year-end stories, I figured it would be interesting to parse the figures and quantify my year in cars in a way I’d never done before. The results are, well, they’re a little bizarre, honestly. And I think they’ll affect how I approach this gig in 2015.

Mazda considers expanding Takata recall nationwide

Published by Mazda Blogs on December 9th, 2014

Filed under: , ,

Mazda RX-8

Vehicle recalls have come in force recently. Honda expanded its front driver’s side Takata airbag inflator recall nationwide to cover an estimated 5.4-million vehicles, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration added 19 notices to its database covering safety campaigns dating back to October. It looks like there could be one more to add to the list soon because Mazda is considering a possible nationwide expansion of its own inflator repairs.

A company spokesperson tells Reuters that there is no decision yet when to actually make this nationwide expansion of the driver’s side inflator recall official, and the company isn’t sure how many vehicles may be affected.

Mazda just expanded the scope of its Takata inflator recalls to additional regions earlier in December. The move took its total number of units in need of repair from around 65,000 under the earlier NHTSA estimate to 86,773, according to the company. So far, the automaker’s US campaign has included the 2003-2007 Mazda6, 2006-2007 MazdaSpeed6, 2004-2008 Mazda RX-8, 2004-2005 MPV and 2004 B-Series pickup.
