What is This Light on My Dash?

What is this Light on My Dash?

We'll Repair Your Vehicle!

Service - World Car Mazda Hours

210-600-5045

As you drive, it can be easy to focus more on the road ahead than on the instrument gauge. That is, however, until you see a small light on the dash. Here at World Car Mazda, we want to help you feel informed about your vehicle, including the different warning lights that could appear. Keep reading to learn more!

Service Engine Soon

In this article, we’ll talk about the Service Engine Soon warning light. You’ll easily be able to recognize it, thanks to the engine-shaped icon that usually appears. What does it mean? There are several different reasons, but overall it signals that something is not quite right with the engine. As the heart of your vehicle, the engine must be carefully maintained in order to get from point A to point B with ease. If you see this warning light, head on over to your trustworthy Mazda Service Department as soon as possible!

Potential Causes

The engine is a highly complex part which works in tandem with many other components under the hood. A few of the potential problems that could cause the warning light to occur include a malfunctioning spark plug, loose or faulty wires,  a bad oxygen sensor, a damaged catalytic converter, and more. If all of this is new vocabulary for you, not to worry! Our certified technicians are happy to take a look and diagnose the issue. Then, they’ll explain the problem and let you know what the recommended next steps are.

Warning Signs

Oftentimes once the light has appeared on your dash, costly damage could already have occurred. To get ahead of the game, it helps to know the warning signs. If you’ve noticed decreased power while driving, especially at highway speeds, erratic idling, excessive roughness or noise while accelerating, or no response when you press the gas pedal, it could be time to take your vehicle in for an inspection. You should also watch out for steam or unusual leaks from the front of your car. All of these are clues that the engine is working too hard and could quickly fail. The good news is that we utilize high-tech tools to help find the issue quickly and repair it efficiently.   

What is this light on my dash? Now that you know, come and meet with us here at World Car Mazda! We want to be your trusted source for all things automotive-related.

So I got an oil change here! And can I just say Liz is amazing! She is so approachable (I came in on a day of running errands looking like a hot mess with crocs on 😬 SCARY) she was just so gracious and sweet! I felt the need to leave a review just for her!!! Can everyone be this nice and helpful??????? You don’t get this type of service everywhere! Thanks Liz! And to the dealership GIVE HER A RAISE!!! Much deserved! I wasn’t the only person she was this way with! I heard many conversations while waiting for my car.

My wife and I had a very good experience here buying a Mazda 6 with a trade-in. We dealt with Kristin in sales, and J.B., the manager there. We had our own financing arranged and everything went smoothly with the purchase. We had a special circumstance with a trade-in, and a miscommunication with J.B. that didn't surface until we were doing the deal. It amounted to about $1000 in our favor but he took responsibility for the ambiguous agreement we had, and gave us the original deal. I was happy with that and felt like we got a pretty good deal overall. We did buy one of the many add-on packages available that we could have gotten for a better value elsewhere, but the convenience and the dealership standing behind it was worth it too us. I'd shop there again and recommend them based on our experience.

Our family has bought many cars from World Car, New Braunfels and they have always come through for us. Kelsey Heath helped us today and she was friendly, helpful, and attentive. Also, the gentleman who handled the financial information was very clear and thorough in his explanations. I am sorry that I cannot remember his name. Thanks so much!

No problems at World Car Mazda New Braunfels. Leslie was a fine sales lady having technical knowledge of the CX-5, demonstrating all the high-tech options available on the vehicle. She answered our questions concerning the vehicle; its safety features, warranty, including the lifetime power-train and roadside assistance details. She was friendly, personable and easy to work with throughout the entire purchasing process. Additionally, John, in F and I, made the actual buying process smooth, easy, and quick. He too was very experienced and knowledgeable. Over all a good and easy process with knowledgeable and friendly staff.

After reading the reviews I'm wondering if I went to the same place. I had a wonderful experience with buying a car at WorldCar. We were greeted by a pleasant sales person, Kristin C., who helped us find a car that suited our family needs. When it came to talk price she brought her sales manager, J.B., to discuss pricing. I began the haggling process but he stopped me and informed me that WorldCar no longer operates sales based on commissions. He also informed me that they price match with other dealerships in the area. KBB had our vehicle priced at $15,500 but there was another dealer that had our vehicle priced at $13,500. So WorldCar matched that dealer price! My only complaint was how long it took for all the paperwork, but given that it was Veterans Day that may have had a lot to do with the delay.

I was contacted by a sales manager who has since then corrected this horrible mishap. He informed me that they would send a check immediately for the inspection fee and overnight mail fee in regards to that error. They have received my inspection paperwork sent over night the next day. I was contacted today and told that my tags and a reimbursement check has been placed in the mail on its way to me today. Thank you for making things right. I greatly appreciate this effort.

Awesome service from everyone but the young man that greeted me and assisted me with my service, who pushed beyond being nice and slipped into condescending. He means well but he should tone it back just a tad.
