Glenn Heads to the 2018 MazTech Competition

Congratulations to Glenn Bonderud and his leaders at West Coast Mazda.  Glenn has made it to the 2018 MazTech Competition.

To Ignite Passion in the people we serve, we must embody the spirit and passion that drives emotional response from our customers.  As we continue on “Our Way Is Forward” at Mazda in Canada, Ignite the Passion must be felt at every level of the dealership. Technicians are born with a passion for automobiles and are the backbone of the dealership where people, place and process come together and with the innovative vehicles we produce, create a unique and rewarding environment where pride and passion combine to create an exhilarating customer experience like no other.

Mazda Technicians across Canada completed a 50 question test to vie for the opportunity to compete in Toronto at the 2018 MazTech Competition. The top ten are welcomed to an all-expenses-paid trip to Mazda’s head office where they will showcase their talents in a skills competition solving challenging bugs on a 2018 Mazda CX-3.  Points will be awarded for each bug resolved and tallied to determine this year’s overall champion and runners-up.

Please join us in congratulating Glenn!

There is no mechanical hardware to this system; the software alone reduces torque when turning into a corner, and when in a middle of a corner it senses steering angle and speed to reduce torque accordingly for optimal corner handling.

Esther Is Back In Zoom Zoom Mode!

edf794b0-7ca2-48b8-8f68-c3d7aeacf7f2

Recent customer, Esther, shares some fantastic comments for our team here at West Coast Mazda!

“I ❤️ my Zoom Zoom. And having it in great condition is important to me and I’m glad that when I enquired about tires & battery, I had the prices and information given to me right away- Alijah was great in knowing the answers with much enthusiasm. I came on a Sat morning and when I called after leaving the dealer to book an appointment, I was scheduled the next working day- Monday! If you saw my tire condition (tread to wear bar-you would know my concerns about getting in a timely manner due to the rainy weather.. was important.. And I’m so happy I only had to endure 1 day driving in the rain.. Clenching the steering wheel and squeezing my butt all the way on my drive due to my tires. Leaving the dealer on Mon and driving on Tuesday was a completely different experience. I definitely was in zoom zoom mode again. Feeling completely safe knowing I had really great tires for my drive.. Alijah, you were right- I love the tires and they handle great. And quiet too! So glad I took your advice. Thank you! And the replacement of the car & fob battery definitely makes it a piece of mind! Thanks Jose! Thanks for the great service! This is for the mechanics in the back! And Alijah for recommending a great tire! These will definitely will keep me zoom zooming for awhile again- safely! I am happy to be back in PoCo and seeing the great staff again at this dealer! Truly a great environment. Feels like home.. Always a great pleasure to see John too! Keep up the great work everyone! Esther”

We really appreciate you taking the time to provide such positive comments to Mazda Canada on the recent survey that you completed with them Esther, particularly regarding our staff and how please you have been with them. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
