“The Motor Oil Matters information and gift cards have been provided by Motor Oil Matters.”
There is probably only one thing I dislike more than having my car worked on and that’s a dentist visit. They are definitely my two least favorite necessary tasks. I’ll be honest. I don’t know anything about cars. I’ll research on Google before having anything serious changed on the car, but ultimately I just hope the guys who take care of my automobile know what they’re doing. I detest not knowing anything about how to properly maintain and fix a car. It’s all so confusing. I don’t want to seem like a poor helpless female, but I guess I kind of am when it comes to cars.
The American Petroleum Institute has created a new consumer education and industry watchdog program titled, Motor Oil Matters, or MOM. This organization was established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and to bring to light those who engage in deceptive practices. ”Quality motor oil”? What!? Isn’t oil just ……oil?
To better inform consumers about quality oil MOM has created a checklist highlighting key areas to consider when having your oil changed. Yeah, obviously this checklist was made for me. Most of the time car information can be overwhelming and confusing. A checklist?! Heck, that is definitely my kind of talk. You’ll have to check out my next post, as I’m going to be bringing this little checklist with me at my next oil change. No more scouring the interweb. I can be ask the right questions with my handy dandy list!
Here is some additional key information to keep in mind regarding car care.
- 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 motor oil in your car is one way to prevent road trip problems.
- Motor Oil Matters, or MOM, a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute, has been established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.
- 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.
Motor Oil Matter has kindly offered one lucky Mama Report reader a $50 Visa gift card for their next oil change!
