In my neighborhood, you can't get much done without a car. It is possible to walk to some places but mostly, you need a dependable vehicle every day. As someone who racks up thousands of miles per year, I know taking good care of my car is very important. I pay special attention to strange noises and warning lights, make sure my tires are always properly inflated, and have the oil changed on schedule.
Speaking of oil changes, MOM has a handy motor oil checklist to help you be an educated consumer. MOM stands for Motor Oil Matters, the new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute. MOM has been established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.
Quality motor oil for your car is important year round. Just between the major summer holidays of Memorial Day and Labor Day, AAA expects to aid over eight million motorists. Proper auto maintenance is key to avoiding summertime travel breakdowns. Ensuring quality motor oil 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.
Connect with MOM on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks to MOM, one lucky U.S. reader will win a $50 Visa gift card to use on their next oil change.
