IRVINE, CA--Nov. 2, 2012: Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announced a $100,000 contribution to the American Red Cross to support relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Additionally, The Mazda Foundation (USA), Inc., Board of Trustees approved grants to the Flemington Area Food Pantry and The Food Bank Network of Somerset County for $5,000 each. These two area food banks serve the communities immediately surrounding Mazda's Northeast Region Office, an area devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

"Hurricane Sandy has had a devastating impact on many people in the Northeast, including our own employees, dealers and customers, so we're pleased to work with the American Red Cross and local food banks to help those who have been affected by the disaster," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO.

In addition, Mazda Capital Services (MCS)1 has informed MNAO that it will assist current customers in the areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy by automatically waiving late fees on MCS auto loans and leases. This will give MCS customers until the end of business on Monday, Nov. 5 to make a payment to bring their accounts current and avoid fees. MCS customers who believe they are in an area that has been impacted by Hurricane Sandy and who are having trouble making a car payment, want to confirm eligibility for the late fee waiver, or have any questions, can call Mazda Capital Services at 1-866-984-7718 (loan customers) or 1-866-984-7716 (lease customers).

For everyone in the high impact areas who have an insurance claim of damage or loss to their current vehicle, MNAO is offering $500 cash towards the purchase of a new Mazda. In addition, qualified customers have the option to defer their first payment for 90 days from the contract date on the purchase of any new Mazda financed under special financing offered by participating lenders.
