Used Mazda Dealership

Did you know that Mazda originally produced corks in Japan in the 1920s before making its debut in the automotive industry with a tricycle truck known as the Mazda Go in 1931? It’s hard to believe that a company known for models like the Miata, Mazda3, and the CX-5 hasn’t always been involved in the car business. In fact, its journey to becoming one of the best automakers in the world is one that’s filled with surprises and is what makes us here at DePaula Ford proud to be part of that history as a used Mazda dealership.

If you’re looking for a reliable used Mazda to meet all your driving needs, our team is ready to help. But before you start your search, we thought we’d share more about Mazda’s rich legacy as well as the models that make up the Mazda lineup. From there, we’ll highlight everything we have to offer and why you’ll want to make us your used Mazda dealer.

Mazda Overview

Mazda’s innovation became apparent with the debut of its first motorized vehicle, the Mazda Go, in 1931. Five years later, the Japanese automaker debuted its first passenger car prototype but was forced to switch gears and lend its hand in World War II after the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945. Using its workshops as emergency hospitals throughout the war, Mazda emerged from the war efforts inspired by the people of Hiroshima and set out to become one of the leading automakers in the world.

Mazda began exporting its three-wheeled trucks to India in the late 1940s and, by the end of the 1960s, had several models in its fleet to give drivers a choice between everything from small vans to pickup trucks. Mazda gained a stronger footing in Japan after developing the world’s first two-rotor rotary engine, which set the stage for its global growth. By the 1970s, Mazda made its way to American soil, where its unique engine design earned praise and sealed Mazda’s place as one of the largest automakers in the world.

Continuing to build its legacy over the next several decades, Mazda gave drivers more of what they demanded with models like the 626 and the RX-7, the latter of which is the best-selling sports car with a rotary engine. Success continued with the MX-5 roadster that launched Mazda to greater acclaim in the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, the automaker was forced to return to its roots near the end of the decade after financial turmoil led to a brief and unexpected financial partnership with Ford. This partnership and the new millennium turned things around for Mazda and is where we find the automaker today with modern models like the Mazda6, the Mazda3, and the CX-5.
