It’s a common misconception that women drivers are oblivious to what’s under the hood of their vehicles. But please believe that even the daintiest of us know a thing or two or at least know who to call or where to research when we need answers. Unfortunately, some auto repairmen use misconceptions to their advantage to overcharge or sell unnecessary services to those who may not know any better.
Motor Oil Matters (MOM) is offering a new program for licensing motor oil distributors and oil change locations. MOM was established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices. The MOM logo displayed at any motor oil distributor shows their commitment to installing high-quality products that meet engine manufacturer recommendations.
From Motor Oil Matters
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 motoroil in your car is one way to prevent road trip problems.
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.
Sidenote: I cannot stress regular car maintenance enough… especially oil changes. I’ve heard SO many stories of people ruining their engines all because they failed to get an oil change. You can even do it yourself! YouTube is a wonderful thing!
