Teachers Who Make Magic!


The annual Teachers Who Make Magic event hosted by Magic 98.3 was held last week at the Pines Manor in Edison, New Jersey.


This year, we brought along the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring. With its engaging driving experience, anyone can enjoy great features like the automatic chair adjustment and steering wheel volume control.  If you are a music blasting driver like me, you will love the sound system! Plus, the interior lighting helps make your last minute makeup application look…not so last minute.


The night honored certain teachers who have made a big difference in the lives of their students; from teacher’s who fought for better supplies and those who tirelessly stayed after school to help their students. It is an event which reminds us how important of an impact teachers have on children who grow up to be the very people that make a difference in the future. There was no better person to bring along than my dear friend Maryam, who is a middle school English teacher.

There is no event without a selfie! (And no, we are not sisters)

She hopped in the CX-5 as we pulled to the venue, and she was nothing short of impressed!  I think I found a future customer.

Through cocktail hour and dinner, we had the pleasure to meet some of the teachers and their families. After a wonderful evening, we both headed home in the CX-5 with the LED headlights paving the path with every turn.

On behalf of Crystal Auto Mall, we thank all the hardworking teachers who surpass the obstacles to see their students excel!

The CX-9 is Blossoming this Spring!

Mazda carefully crafts each of its vehicles; the newly designed CX-9 that’s coming out this spring is making us all blossom with joy!

The CX-9 has not been drastically remodeled for about 10 years, but the newly redesigned popular Mazda model was totally worth the wait!

To begin with, Mazda conducted massive research to learn and understand how consumers use a three-rowed vehicle. It has been redesigned to work with the popular driving patterns and needs of these consumers.

The CX-9 is about a couple hundred pounds lighter, with a significantly lighter chassis, both which factor for better performance and refinement. The vehicle now uses a 2.5-liter-four-cylinder engine (previously a V-6 engine), which is the first turbocharging application to Mazda’s Skyactiv engine line. The new engine has increased the CX-9’s fuel economy by about 20%, with 22/28 mpg with Front Wheel Drive, and 21/27 for AWD.


The wheelbase is now 2.2 inches longer, increasing legroom for passengers and making entering and exiting the third row passenger seats easier.

With huge design changes comes new awesome available features! Now, the CX-9 comes standard with a 7” display screen and an optional 8” screen. There are four USB ports, two in the front and two in the back, so you don’t have to wait long to charge your phone. New safety features offered in the iActivesense safety suite, like the lane-keeping assist and departure warning.

However, the biggest surprise is the new trim-level option, Signature. This top trim offers a more luxurious look with Napa leather, aluminum accents, and rosewood trim.

Expected to be on the lot within the next couple of weeks or so, the CX-9 is the best thing to bloom this spring!

What to Expect for 2016!


Happy 2016! The New Year is a great opportunity to refresh, start something new, or take on a challenge! The previous year has certainly been huge for Toyota, Mazda, and Scion at Crystal Auto Mall.  The building renovation was completed and we added many new employees to better serve our customers.

Even for me, when I first started working at Crystal, they had just moved into phase two of construction. It was great being a part of and seeing the company’s growth.

Throughout my year, I learned so much about the vehicles and the company. It was filled with lots of great experiences and the opportunity to drive different vehicles to community events!

For Toyota, Mazda, and Scion they revamped their models- raising the bar by offering great new standard features like the back-up camera and push to start!

So what can we expect for 2016?

To start with, Toyota is offering a car we already love in a Hybrid model. The 2016 RAV4 Hybrid offers a new look, better gas mileage with its eco-friendly engineering, and great space.  We can also expect the 2016 Prius with a makeover look as well!

Brace Yourself – Winter is Coming!

Although the weather has been teasing with warm temperatures, here in the Tristate we know better than to be misled! We have seen some harsh winters over the past few years, so it is important that your car is ready to take on what is to come!

Here are a few things to check on to help WINTERIZE your car!

  1. Cooling System

The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically along with the drive belts, clamps, and hoses.  It is important that your engine runs at a constant temperature that not too hot or too cold, so servicing your coolant system is a must!

Stay warm, friends!


Understanding Synthetic Oil!

An oil change is a basic, yet imperative maintenance service! There are three different options, conventional, synthetic blend, and full synthetic oil. It doesn’t matter how old or new your car is, every car benefits from using synthetic oil. You can always upgrade!

Synthetic oil is composed of refined, distilled, purified, and broken down basic molecules. The components of synthetic oil help remove impurities. These customized molecules are tailored to the demands of modern engines by allowing less friction, giving the engine longer life and better fuel economy.

What are the benefits of using synthetic oil?

  1. Keeps your engine cleaner because it better resists the formation of sludge, preventing deposits from forming in your engine.
  1. Offers great engine wear protection. Your engine works really… really hard. Engine parts are constantly in contact together and it gets very hot. Synthetic oil becomes a protective barrier for the engine parts and protects against the high temperatures within the motor, all which contribute to increased engine life.
  1. Protects important turbocharger parts. With recent innovations to engine designs, they are now built smaller for greater fuel efficiency, with turbochargers to boost power. To meet consumer demands for powerful fuel efficient vehicles, the turbocharger is put to a lot of work, spinning up to 200,000 revolutions per minute! Synthetic oil can quickly get to the shaft and other components to protect it, allowing the engine to consistently operate at peak performance and boost power.

Because synthetic oil lasts longer (up to 10,000 miles), you don’t have to change the oil as frequently, helping your busy day be a little less busy.

Busting the Myths!

There are common misconceptions about dealerships; so we want to shed some light to help you kick those myths to the curb!

Here are a couple of tips to keep in mind!

  1. Don’t wait until the end of the month!

With your preparation and our special deals, you don’t need to rush in at the end of the month to save big bucks.  If you come in any day of the month, I guarantee you will get a great deal. You can always take advantage of our amazing sales at any moment, so don’t force yourself to wait until the end of the month. Come in any day and seize the opportunity for great Crystal savings!

  1. Discount Dealer sites can be misleading

Although it is important do to research beforehand, be wary of aggressive pricing from dealer discount sites because they may not be realistic, or offer prices on vehicles that are not available. Come to the dealer first for a price on the car you want,  without having any surprises.

  1. You should service your vehicle outside the dealership

Would you ever go to a non-licensed doctor for a checkup? I didn’t think so. There is no one better to service your vehicle than a manufacturer trained technician that uses genuine products. With our complimentary multi-point inspection, we thoroughly look over everything, so that your car is always up-to-date. Every time your car pulls up to our doors, you can be at ease knowing that you’re getting the best service!
