As a general rule of thumb, if your car starts doing something a little funky, you probably shouldn’t wait too long to get it checked out. You especially don’t want to mess around when it comes to your vehicle’s transmission. Transmission replacements can come with a hefty price tag, so it’s important to take care of your transmission and give it a little TLC if you notice it acting up. Although you rarely need to change your vehicle’s transmission fluid, knowing the signs of bad or dirty transmission fluid can save you a huge headache down the road. (more…)

The car-buying process can be complicated. Luckily, the staff at Serra Mazda is knowledgeable in your financing options and will gladly answer your questions to find you the route that works best for you. But first, let’s break it down so you can get a better idea of what’s involved.
Why should you lease? It’s a good option if you’re feeling the “new car itch” and are simply looking to upgrade your current car or you’re interested in the latest and greatest models. Leasing generally gives you lower monthly payments, but can be restricting when it comes to mileage. You’ll have to work out a pre-determined amount of time to have the vehicle, and will simply bring it back in when your lease is up to either renew or choose something new.
It makes sense to buy a car when you’re looking for no penalty fees and unlimited mileage usage. Some downsides include the necessary down payment and your responsibility to pay for any damages, but at least you know the car is yours. Buying a new car means you have a better chance to get it made to order without any dings and receive a great warranty. Plus, the newer the car, the better the technology and special features. And if you’re investing that much money, you should want to have the best of the best.
Serra Mazda is dedicated to serving our customers. Visit our Mazda dealership at 1503 Gadsden Highway in Trussville, AL—a short distance from Birmingham, Pell City, and Ashville—to discuss your car and financing needs. Don’t forget about our constant deals and specials! We invite you to stop by our financing department to talk through the details and crunch some numbers.
Keeping up with your car’s maintenance schedule can be difficult for even the most organized people. Things get especially complicated when you hear contrasting opinions on how often your vehicle needs to be serviced. The rule of thumb used to be that you needed to have your oil changed every three months or 3,000 miles. Experts are now saying that your vehicle can safely go a little longer in between oil changes. So what’s the truth? (more…)
