Contest ends July 5th

You are a smart mom.. I just know it! Something that most smart moms do is save money and spend wisely.  One way to save money is to keep your ride alive for 150,000.. even 250,000 miles.  The best way to do that is to keep your car maintained.  Ok, so I haven’t kept a car older 60,000 miles in the 20 years I’ve been a car owner but believe you me.. I’ve learned my lesson and I’d love to try!

A 2010 Jiffy Lube International survey reveals drivers hope to keep vehicles longer and want help from maintenance providers to reach mileage goals.  My local Jiffy Lube guys (and gals!) know that I want them to check EVERYTHING when I come in.  No kidding.  I am a believer in maximizing my time and when I’m waiting in the car shop’s waiting room I want to know that everything possible is getting checked on my car to ensure that it is safe and running efficiently and smoothly.  I feel confident that when I leave Jiffy Lube, my car is in tip top condition and I appreciate the service managers communicate very well with me when/if there is an issue.

Did you know that the Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change, one that my Nissan Quest has gotten for its last 3 oil changes, is more than just an oil change?   It is a preventive maintenance program that includes changing, inspecting, checking/filling and cleaning key vehicle parts and fluids, offering drivers a quick and convenient way to maintain their vehicle’s value and longevity.  What is absolutely fabulous is that my car is in and out of Jiffy Lube in 30 minutes or less. Really.  I’m not just saying that. My husband took my car to Jiffy Lube just two weeks ago, before my trip to Florida, and I was surprised when he called me barely 1/2 hour after he left the house to tell me the car was done.  Way to go Jiffy Lube!

Here are some interesting facts:

  • While 99% of drivers agree getting their oil changed regularly will help prolong its life, most are looking for additional services during their oil change visits to help keep their ride alive
  • More than half of U.S. drivers hope to hit more than 150,000 miles on their vehicle before replacing it.
  • Nine in 10 people agree having other key vehicle parts and fluids checked during their regular oil change is the most convenient way for them to maintain their vehicle’s value and longevity
  • More than half of U.S. drivers (59%) agree it is important to have their oil change finished in 30 minutes or less

Here are a few things you can do to help keep your ride alive:

  • Join other drivers in celebrating high mileage accomplishments and share your story by uploading an image of yourself/your vehicle and information in the appropriate mileage category on the “Share Your Story” tab at www.Facebook.com/KeepingMyRideAlive.  My ‘big red car’ as Madelyn calls it is young at a mere 46,000 miles.  My story may be live on the Keeping My Ride Alive Facebook page now.. not sure how long it takes to go up after you submit.
  • Watch the video below profiling a driver who has been able to keep his vehicle for 17+ years and has clocked over 400,000 miles; includes vehicle maintenance statistics and tips.
