Summer is in full swing! Whether you are taking small road trips or a big family vacation, it’s important to stay on top of your vehicle’s maintenance.
My dad and husband both stress on how important regular oil changes are for your vehicle.
Did you know:
AAA expects between the major summer holidays of Memorial Day and Labor Day to aid over eight million motorists, and cautions drivers that auto maintenance is key to avoiding summertime travel breakdowns. Ensuring quality motor oil in your car is one way to prevent road trip problems.
Before you get on the road this summer, let me introduce you to Motor Oil Matters, or MOM, a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute. They have been established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.
Service-locators can be quick to offer discounted services to people who are looking to reduce their automotive maintenance costs. Make sure your service provider is pouring quality motor oil into your car before you decide on a cheaper deal.
