Just a brief bit of background information. My real name is Carl Carpenter, but Kris Cox (one of the owners of Cox Mazda) dubbed me Mr Mazda several years ago. I discovered the Mazda brand in 2006 when I purchased a Mazda3 for my lovely wife as a commute car. In early 2007, I purchased my first (of four) Speed3, that car was a BLAST! In late 2007, I came to work for Cox Mazda, becoming the Internet Manager a few months later.

"Always Consistent"

- mazda627

I've been involved with many service centers over the last 50 years, and they are so professional and organized that it is always simple and non-painful. They don't waste my time, the waiting area is excellent, and I'm treated real well. Highly recommend them!

"Great family owned dealership "

- RBH05 Verified Customer

I've bought multiple cars from them and always take both vehicles to Cox Mazda for my service. Polite and prompt service every time I've been there.

"Connect 4"

- Fsigal

This is the 4th time that I've leased a car with Cox and have used Carl each time. They are straight to the point and don't mess around. They want to sell you a car and will do what needs to be done. Carl is curtious, prompt and knows anything and everything about the cars he sells. Thanks again for the great ride. -Fane Sigal

"Fast, friendly service"

- Kewluke Verified Customer

I purchased my 2016 MX5 from a low pressure, knowledgeable salesman. I have since then brought my Miata to the Cox Mazda dealership for scheduled service. I found the service to be fast, and done right the first time.

"Negotiation Via Text!"

- Zam

Carl is simply the best!!!! My husband and Carl negotiated the lease through text. Carl then took part of his day off to close the deal! Jay was also fantastic! The entire experience was top notch!

"Great experience "

- JRDORSA Verified Customer

Seem fair and honest. Probably cost a bit more than independent mechanic but hard to find a reputable 1 if those so willing to pay bit more to get it done right. Offer loaners and shuttle rides and lots of coupons.
