April is both National Car Care and National Informed Women Month and a perfect opportunity to get empowered to care for your car!
In addition, the site offers a fun, educational game for you to play called “M.O.M. Knows Best” where you can put your motor mind to the test with an interactive quiz.
Did you know...
- According to a recent survey from the Automotive Service Association, more than 54 percent of customers who take their vehicles for service and repair are women
- Using a high-quality motor oil in the right grade can help maximize fuel economy
- Low-quality oils that do not meet industry standards or the vehicle manufacturer’s requirements could cost consumers in the long run by potentially damaging the vehicle’s engine or possibly voiding the manufacturer’s warranty
- Another reason to look to a high-quality motor oil – like Pennzoil and Quaker State - is that it is designed to meet the demands of today’s engines
Thanks to Shell Lubricants and My Blog Spark, I visited the nearest Jiffy Lube for an oil change in my Mommy Mobile (read: minivan).
The folks at the Jiffy Lube on Memorial Boulevard in Murfreesboro, Tennessee were very friendly and the service was....well, JIFFY! ;)
Not to mention that the waiting area was CLEAN...which is a HUGE plus with me!
Next time you need an oil change, seriously consider Jiffy Lube. To find the location nearest you, visit http://www.jiffylube.com/findlocation/storelocator.aspx
