Review: 2018 Mazda6 Signature – Part 5

May 25, 2018

So I’ve come to the end of my week long review of the 2018 Mazda6 Signature and I walk away from this review very, very impressed. By that I mean that every aspect of this vehicle impressed me. The interior, exterior, driving experience, everything is above and beyond what one should expect from a mid […]

Review: 2018 Mazda6 Signature – Part 4

May 24, 2018

Even though the 2018 Mazda6 has a whole lot of technology in it. Here’s what it comes with starting with the safety technology: Blind Spot Monitoring: This system keeps an eye out for cars in your blind spots so that you don’t hit them when changing lanes. It also detects cars that are rapidly closing […]

Review: 2018 Mazda6 Signature – Part 3

May 23, 2018

The interior of the 2018 Mazda6 Signature is simply a class above. Though I do have three very minor complaints, it’s a total winner. Let me walk you through it: The drivers side door (not to mention the rest of the car) has a mix of Nappa leather, aluminum, Sen wood and Ultrasuede accents that really gives […]

Review: 2018 Mazda6 Signature – Part 2

May 22, 2018

The Mazda6 in the recent past has only come with a Skyactiv 2.5L normally aspirated four cylinder engine that put out 187 horsepower and 186 pound feet of torque. While those don’t sound like big numbers, none of the Mazda6 models that I’ve driven ever felt lacking in any way when it came to power. […]

Review: 2018 Mazda6 Signature – Part 1

May 21, 2018

This is a USB memory stick I received from Mazda at an event that I attended a couple of years ago:   Why am I highlighting this USB stick? It’s one of the best USB sticks that I have ever received. It feels very nice and upscale, as well as giving off an sense of […]

Review: 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature – Part 4

February 7, 2019

If you’re looking for technology in the Mazda CX-5 Signature, there’s a lot of it. Some of it which is really different. But there are two things missing. Before I get to that, let’s start with the safety technology: Blind Spot Monitoring: This system keeps an eye out for cars in your blind spots so […]

The IT Nerd Award For The Best Car Of 2018 Goes To: 2018 Mazda6 Signature

December 19, 2018

I’ve always considered the Mazda6 to be the best mid sized car out there. It has excellent handling, great fuel economy, and great looks inside and out. Though I have heard complaints from some who wished there was a V6 under the hood as they could not get past the normally aspirated 4 cylinder engine […]

Review: 2019 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD – Part 2

November 13, 2018

This is the 2.5l turbocharged 4 cylinder engine that powers the Mazda CX-9. You might have seen this engine before as it powered the Mazda6 Signature that I drove earlier this year. It puts out 227 horsepower and 310 pound feet of torque. But if you use premium instead of regular fuel, it puts out 250 […]

In Depth: Mazda’s Implementation Of Android Auto And Apple CarPlay

November 26, 2018

Mazda first pledged support for CarPlay back in 2014. And they have been listed as a CarPlay partner on Apple’s CarPlay website since shortly after CarPlay first debuted. But the company never actually released a CarPlay-compatible vehicle. You can mostly copy and paste that statement for Android Auto as well. And I have to imagine that […]
