When you think of Mazda, a number of things come to mind; fun, quirky, stylish, and efficient, just to name a few. With all of these attributes, the affordability of a Mazda is truly remarkable. Recently, Kelley Blue Book awarded Mazda a 2013 5-Year Cost to Own Award, naming the brand as one of the most affordable over five years.
To calculate the cost of ownership, KBB combines a number of factors including depreciation, maintenance and repair fees, fuel cost, insurance and financing. This is an important tool for buyers, because with some car brands, the initial purchase price may be low, but the cost of ownership could sky-rocket with repairs and fuel costs. Mazda shoppers don’t have to worry about that though.
“Budget-conscious drivers want quality vehicles that are easy to maintain and worth more when it’s time to trade in, and that’s why more and more motorists are turning to Mazda. The best part is that you can have the performance and quality you want while still getting class-leading fuel economy, which is a total win-win for people who want to actually enjoy driving,” commented Tom McGovern, General Manager of a Chicago Mazda dealer.
Congratulations, Mazda on the 5-Year Cost to Own Award. If you are looking for an affordable, fun and efficient new ride, then Mazda is your best choice. Stop by our dealership, Bakersfield Mazda, to browse our extensive inventory of new and used Mazda vehicles.
