Our opinion is that if consumers are anticipating keeping their vehicles longer during the recession, routine preventative maintenance would serve as an important piece to prolonging the life of that vehicle.
Pismo Beach, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2010
ASCOC.com, a division of SP EVENTURES INC, today announced the release of its first 2010 Quick Report. ASCOC (Automotive Service Consumer Opinion Council) is an independent research site with a panel of over 100,000 automotive service consumers. The consumers join the panel via the company's consumer related website: mycarbuzz.com and then participate in various automotive studies. The first study of 2010 is underway and the first Quick Report from the study is available from the company's website for a small fee.
This first Quick Report provides findings based upon consumer trends towards routine preventative maintenance during this economic recession. The question is posed to determine whether consumers are prolonging preventative maintenance to save money in the short term. While many would argue this is not a sound practice, many consumers are uneducated as to the damage that may occur with skipping scheduled maintenance.
"As a Jiffy Lube franchisee, we are very interested in understanding the consumer trends in regards to routine preventative maintenance. Our opinion is that if consumers are anticipating keeping their vehicles longer during the recession, routine preventative maintenance would serve as an important piece to prolonging the life of that vehicle. It will be interesting to see how consumers respond," said Jiffy Lube Franchisee Rudd McClory.
While consumers are generally looking for every bargain they can get, the report looks to whether the same holds true for automobile maintenance. In an industry that has a wide spectrum of pricing and service levels, what variables are consumers looking for when determining their next service visit? To view details of the report visit the company's website at http://www.ASCOC.com today. The report costs only $75 and is available for immediate download.
