Great experience at Berge Mazda Service department! I worked with Paul and he and his team were able to figure out an elusive battery issue (that turned out to be from an after market accessory.) I appreciated that they listened to my concerns, and ensured I’d be happily driving my Miata without...

I can't say enough good things about this dealership. On my drive from Iowa to Scottsdale this year, I hit a "major" pothole on Hwy 54 in the Texas panhandle. It blew a hole in my right front tire, and put a big dent in the rim. I drove 200 miles to Albuquerque where I was able to replace the tire....

I hate salesmen and dealerships. Hate them. I have been looking for a car and been to several dealerships. Didn't change my mind. Then my husband found a car at Berge Mazda.
