Passionate Mazda auto enthusiasts take pride in knowing their marque embraces innovative technologies (such as the rotary engine) in its quest for automotive performance or the latest green hybrid technology. These performance-conscious drivers pay particular attention to proper maintenance and repair, and seek out the best aftermarket and genuine OEM Mazda parts online. For enthusiasts seeking both performance and value, top-quality aftermarket replacements are a great alternative to original factory components, which can cost a fortune from the service counter at your local car dealer.
Buying used Mazda parts online is generally a poor choice, since they're usually just as worn-out as the failed used items being replaced, and could fail again at any time. Unless you like trips to the repair shop, you might as well install new items purchased online from CPD. That way you only pay once, and get the peace of mind that only comes with genuine OEM or quality aftermarket replacement components. Look up your year and model on our web site today, and find out how much you can save.
History of Mazda
Originally founded in 1920 as the Toyo Cork Kogyo Co., Ltd machine tool company, Mazda has enjoyed a storied past. In 1927 production shifted from part tooling to the Mazda-Go motorized rickshaw, which was a three-wheeled open-top motorcycle with a small pickup bed. Manufacturing shifted again to weaponry during the WWII years, and a car would not be introduced until the R360 model in 1960 and the Carol in 1962. The brand officially entered the US market in 1970 with both piston-based motors and Wankel-design rotary engines, which possessed an ideal power to weight ratio for small sports cars such as the RX-2, RX-3 and RX-7.
Despite marketing a variety of successfully badged products and parts, the corporation didn't adopt its name for itself until 1984. The automaker forged a mutually-beneficial long-term partnership with the Ford Motor company in 1979, which offered the automakers greater manufacturing flexibility and design collaboration. With auto sales in Asia making up a large portion of Mazda Motor sales, the business was hit especially hard by the Asian financial crisis of 1997, which enabled Ford to accumulate a controlling interest in the automaker and restructure operations for increased profitability. Recently the marque has been a very strong competitor in the motorsports world, with series such as Formula Mazda Racing, the Star Mazda Series, and Spec Miata. Brand marketing has been just as successful, with its timeless "Zoom-Zoom" and "emotion of motion" campaigns.
