support relief efforts for victims of the recent Moore, Okla., tornado
disaster. Additionally, The Mazda Foundation (USA), Inc., Board of Trustees

"The tornado that touched-down in Moore has had an unprecedented impact on
those located far outside the actual impact area, including our own employees,
dealers and customers," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO.
"Because of the heroic work the American Red Cross does on behalf of those in
need, we are honored to work with them to provide help to those who have been
affected by the disaster."

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.
