Enter to Win a $50 Gift Card for Your Next Oil Change :: #MotorOilMatters




Motor Oil Matters {MOM} has one goal. Their goal is to make sure that you receive high-quality motor oil. As a woman I am not very comfortable taking my car in, even just for an oil change. Sometimes I feel like how do I know if these people are being honest with me?! 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. I do not want to get taken advantage of and I am sure you don't either.

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. It is actually time for me to get my oil change. I will post about my experience using my MOM Motor Oil Checklist of important questions to as soon!


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.
