Cow Casually Strolls Into Mazda Dealership, Beats Up Cars Cow Casually Strolls Into Mazda Dealership, Beats Up Cars

There’s a lot at steak as a human. If you break something, those involved will try to milk you dry financially—even when you really needed to punch that wall or kick that breakable item. But when you’re a cow? When you’re a cow, you can just moove it and groove it to your local car dealership and wreak havoc.

This 270,000-Mile Mazda MPV Is a High-Mileage Hero This 270,000-Mile Mazda MPV Is a High-Mileage Hero

This 270,000-mile 2004 Mazda MPV has led a tough life towing a camper, hauling around a family, and braving salty Illinois and Michigan winters. And yet, after having had a chance to drive this tired silver minivan, I found that it wasn’t tired at all. In fact, the thing drives like it’s brand new.

The Original Mazda RX-7 Proves We Need More Cheap Analog Sports Cars

I don’t know if you know this, but Jalopnik’s Jeep-fanatic David Tracy actually has a huge soft spot for a certain small, retro Japanese import.

The 2019 Mazda Miata Adds the Big Horsepower Bump For Just $435 More The 2019 Mazda Miata Adds the Big Horsepower Bump For Just $435 More

The 2019 Mazda Miata is just barely pricier than the last. That might not come as a surprise to some, since it looks the same on the outside. But the new Miata is a lot different than it looks, since it’ll roll around with 181 horsepower to the 2018 model’s 155—all for less than $500 more.

See? And you thought all that praying to Ahura Mazda was for nothing, right? Well it worked: Mazda’s legendary Wankel rotary engine is coming back! To cars! Of course, Ahura Mazda’s power isn’t exactly what it was back in 500 BCE, so there’s a catch: the rotaries will just be used as range extenders for upcoming Mazda…

How to Do a Turbocharged Time Attack Miata on the Cheap

The best cars are the ones that get used. Driven. Hooned. Appreciated as the functional objects that they are. That’s why it’s impossible to look at Luis Millan’s well-loved turbo widebody 1990 Mazda Miata and not smile a little. This is how you do track cars right, and importantly, how to do it on a budget like a…

Installing a Trailer Hitch on a Mazda Miata Is Incredibly Easy and Fixes the Car's Biggest Flaw Installing a Trailer Hitch on a Mazda Miata Is Incredibly Easy and Fixes the Car's Biggest Flaw

It may sound like blasphemy adding weight to a new Mazda Miata, but the lovable convertible sports car is small, and owning one really puts a squeeze on how much stuff you can carry. So my friend David decided to install a trailer hitch, and surprisingly, the whole job was extremely easy.

The Original Mazda RX-7 Drives Like a Humming, Thrumming, Living Animal The Original Mazda RX-7 Drives Like a Humming, Thrumming, Living Animal

Currently, nobody on the market sells cars that run with the magical triangles of a rotary engine—the kind of engine you’d find in a 1980 Mazda RX-7. Really nobody else besides Mazda was ever able to get it to work in a meaningful way. I totally get it, too; by design, rotaries get atrocious gas mileage and they’re…

A 1993 Mazda RX-7 Was The Most Intense Bone Stock Car I've Driven A 1993 Mazda RX-7 Was The Most Intense Bone Stock Car I've Driven

Among the plethora of super-sophisticated Japanese sports cars that spawned from the 1990s—the Nissan 300ZX, Acura NSX, Toyota Supra, Mitsubishi 3000GT and so on—the third-generation Mazda RX-7 (chassis code FD) was by far the most focused machine available. Fast, expensive, unreliable, and not all that practical,…

The 2019 Mazda Miata’s Extra Power Makes a Great Car Better The 2019 Mazda Miata’s Extra Power Makes a Great Car Better

The 2019 Mazda Miata isn’t completely revamped, but then again, it didn’t need that. Now, though, it is more powerful, more efficient, and basically just a tiny bump better. The car was already great, now it’s even more of a goddamn blast.

One Man's Quest To Prove That Mazda RX-7s Really Aren't That Tough To Work On One Man's Quest To Prove That Mazda RX-7s Really Aren't That Tough To Work On

Mention the rotary engine, and you’re bound to get an entire peanut gallery promising apex seals going boom. Ryan Gilbert wasn’t scared away when his girlfriend’s family 1979 Mazda RX-7 was up for grabs. In fact, he’s well on his way to returning it to the drag nights and autocrosses it used to do.

What were you doing when you were 14-years-old? I was probably playing GameBoy in my room with the music turned up too loud and eating everything my mother put in the cabinets.
