Santa Maria, CA (PRWEB) September 08, 2011
Many people associate the arrival of fall with colorful changing of leaves, crisp clear days and back to school time. But along with these changes comes changing driving conditions. Because of the weather changes and shortening days, fall driving can be unpredictable. To increase the safety and awareness of drivers, participating Jiffy Lube centers operated by My Jiffy Lube car care group are offering Free Maintenance Inspection events throughout Fall driving months.
The Jiffy Lube Free Maintenance Inspection event was created to help motorists avoid the costly breakdowns and potential safety hazards of an improperly maintained vehicle. Each participating Jiffy Lube is offering the Free Maintenance Inspection free of charge during each event. The inspection includes:
1. Checking the level of all vital fluids including: engine oil, power steering, transmission/differential, brake fluid, antifreeze/coolant and windshield washer solvent. Most fluids will be available for top-offs for a nominal charge.
2. Checking the condition of key components including: air filter, serpentine belt, cabin air filter, radiator cap and more.
3. Checking of key safety components including: wiper blades, exterior vehicle lighting and tire pressure.
4. A printed review of the OEM’s service recommendations for the vehicle.
“For many motorists, an oil change is the only time most of these items are checked. As time and mileage intervals increase, the frequency of oil change instances has decreased. While Jiffy Lube has always offered a free refill policy for our own customers between oil changes, we wanted to introduce a way to offer that same level of care to non-customers,” stated Sean Porcher, President of My Jiffy Lube car care group. “Our company philosophy has always been to “communicate and educate”. With our Free Maintenance Inspection events, we are dedicated to communicating to motorists about their current vehicle maintenance status and educating them as to what additional steps can be taken to prepare for Fall driving.”
During each event, the Jiffy Lube team will be giving away several fun items including certificates for complimentary Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil changes, a certificate for a complimentary complete car care makeover valued at over $500, Jiffy Lube hats, mugs, frisbees and much more. “Our goal with these events is not only to provide a thorough check over of the vehicle, but to do it in a stress-free environment. Vehicle maintenance is serious, but shouldn’t be a stressful experience. That’s why we are doing this with no catch and at no charge!,” states Porcher.
While the company is not offering free topping off of vital fluids, most fluids will be available for purchase and top-off for a nominal charge. 35 of the nation’s Jiffy Lube centers are participating in the events. Those locations are located in: Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties in California, Eastern Washington (Spokane, Tri-Cities, Clarkston and Walla Walla), Montana (Missoula, Helena, Bozeman and Columbia Falls), Hermiston, Oregon and Lewiston, Idaho.
