Motor Oil Matters- Maintenance is the Key to Travel Breakdowns

disclosure generic review 4 motor-oil-matters

This summer as you head out on grand adventures with your family, it is important to spend time thinking about your vehicle before you hit the road.  Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, AAA expects to assist over 8 million motorists.  I know that I don’t want to be one of those stranded motorists and I am certain neither do you.

The key to keeping your car in top working order is maintenance and ensuring that top quality motor oil is being used in your vehicle.

Motor Oil Matters {also known as MOM} is a new consumer education and industry watchdog program from the American Petroleum Institute.  MOM was created to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call those out who engage in deceptive practices.  In short, they want to help us keep our cars running well and avoid future problems and issues.

To help educate us consumers in the matter of motor oil and vehicle maintenance, they have created a checklist for us to take along on our next routine oil change.  It provides easy to follow tips to ensure we are doing what is best to keep our vehicle in top running order.


I encourage you to print this out and take it along next time you head out for an oil change.  Speaking of which– when was the oil last changed in your car?

To help with that next oil change, I have a $50 gift card to send to one very lucky reader!
