MAZDA CLAIMS TOP SPOT IN RECENT RELIABILITY REPORT
Submitted by Berny on Tuesday, February 20, 2007 - 11:17Mazda General

IRVINE, Calif. – Mazda vehicles have claimed the top place in one of the world’s largest- ever reports on vehicle reliability. Nearly 92 percent of the Mazda cars studied, including the MX-5 Miata, aged between three and nine years old, suffered no mechanical failure of any type – outperforming all other brands.

The report, which was issued by independent automotive extended-warranty specialists, Warranty Direct, looked at the reliability of more than 450,000 vehicles from 33 manufacturers, across the United States and United Kingdom. The resulting ‘Reliability League Table’ shows the number of failures reported for every 100 vehicles covered by Warranty Direct’s policies. Mazda was rated number one with a failure rate of just 8.04 percent of vehicles aged between three and nine years old.

The case stems from last summer's ill-fated voyage of Mitsui's Cougar Ace, which was transporting 4,703 new Mazdas across the Pacific when it started taking on water south of the Aleutian Islands. The ship eventually stabilized after listing 60 degrees onto its port side.

Mazda2 Set to Debut At This Year's Geneva Auto-Show
Submitted by Berny on Friday, February 16, 2007 - 15:08Mazda2

February 2007: The March Geneva Auto-Show will mark the debut of the 2008 Mazda2 - B-segment entry the public has been asking for. It is not sure if Mazda is going to bring the Mazda2 to the North American market yet.

The Mazda2 is designed with Mazda family cues and proportions, with the now traditional large headlamp assemblies that frame the corporate 5-sided grill. The current Mazda design of raised hoods, blends cleanly into the A-pillars, and Mazda's theme of prominent fenders, moves down to a side body line, which is a lot more rounded than current Mazda2 model, then flows over the sides of the car to the a mid-high rear taillamp section, which is placed slightly below very clean and compact rear window.
