A Mazda CX-5 Offers Safety and Security When a Tornado Struck in Shelby, OH

The Mazda brand stands for quality, style, and safety in all of their vehicles, but a recent incident proved the last quality true near Wooster, OH. Thomas and Kelly Cushman recently were caught in a tornado while driving from their home in Shelby, with their Mazda CX-5 being picked up and tossed a few yards away by the Tornado. Fortunately, the Cushman's were relatively unharmed with minor bruises and cuts, despite the vehicle rolling a few times after having been tossed in the air. While the incident was quite unfortunate and very harrowing, it is also a testament to the safety of the Mazda brand as their midsize crossover held true and kept its owners well-protected. Afterwards, the couple were quite adamant that their next SUV be a Mazda, so they came in to Mazda of Wooster and drove away the proud owners of a new Mazda CX-9!

Proven Safety and Resilience

"We walked away without any real injuries," said Thomas Cushman, when describing the aftermath of the couple's run-in with a tornado near Shelby, OH. "I didn't even have much more than a scratch on my head and it was, according to my wife, very much because of our Mazda CX-5 so she wouldn't go anywhere but a Mazda dealership!"

When the Cushmans came in to our dealership to purchase their next car they described their experience as quick and simple with no "dog and pony show," as Thomas Cushman aptly put it.
