Mazda app to help drivers check on maintenance

Mazda app to help drivers check on maintenance

Japanese car giant Mazda has announced the launch of an innovative new app designed to give drivers of its cars complete peace of mind.

The MyMazda app will help car owners across the UK keep a check of their vehicles' maintenance and review the model's service history.

Drivers will even be able to request roadside assistance via the app, which Mazda claims is one of the first of its kind to offer such information and features through a smartphone.

David Wilson-Green, after sales director at Mazda Motors UK, said: "The new App is another opportunity for us to demonstrate our excellent customer service. It is easy to register and simple to use, providing key facts about the owner's vehicle at the touch of a button.

"If a Mazda owner is away from home and wants to visit another Mazda dealership, the App will direct them to the nearest location.  In an emergency it will even allow them to request roadside assistance."

Those looking for new car deals and opting for Mazda will get the app for free and benefit from the data recorded by Mazda's Digital Service Records.

As such, they will receive automatic service reminders, be able to check and edit their personal and vehicle details and find out where their nearest Mazda dealership is.

The news caps a busy period for Mazda after its innovative CX-5 beat off a host of rivals to win the coveted Best Crossover gong at the Auto Express Magazine Green Award 2012.

Mazda also recently announced that it is to unleash a brand new version of the popular MX-5 roadster on UK motorists later this year.

Already a leader in the sports roadster category, the upgraded MX-5 will boast a fresh face, improved aerodynamics, a refined drive and innovative safety features, like Mazda's new "active bonnet", which will minimise the risk of pedestrian injury.
