    This good news for Mazda, thought I still do not see them as a stand alone player in the long run.

    Weird part is that everything I read on their web site really did not give me a clear picture of what SkyActive technology really is till I read this older story on it and now feel I have a good grasp on what this is all about.

    Masda really needs to change their marketing as their commercials leave one still wondering just what the hell is SkyActive technology?

    I figure if a gear head like me is left to search for better answers, how is my wife who watched the same commercials and asked what were they trying to sell me? A car or something else called SkyActive technology?

    That right there tells you their marketing is a failure.

    i think they will and deserve to. the miata is very important to the mazda image, but the failure of the mazda6 to sell over the last few years is what has really done mazda in. CX-5 is blasting out of showrooms. Mazda3 has a good track record. New Mazda6 needs to be a hit for Mazda to make out alright.
