Many of us live a fast paced life. We only pay attention to when the sticker says we need our oil changed. Do you know what kind of oil the mechanic is using when it’s changed? This is where MOM (Motor Oil Matters) can help educate you to make sure you are getting the services you pay for. MOM is a NEW consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute to stress the benefits of quality motor oil and call out on the people who engage in deceptive practices. A little education goes a long way and also helps to empower you as a consumer when you are at the mechanic’s shop. Isn’t nice to know that someone is watching out for us consumers.
If you are planning a summer trip then you really need to make sure you are receiving quality motor oil in your car to prevent road trip problems. The last thing you want is to have a breakdown out of town. It’s stressful and costly! Also check out those quick Service-locators to ensure they are pouring quality motor oil into your car before you decide on a cheaper deal. Sometimes those quick change places can cost you more in the long run. I also check my own air filter and fluids myself. It’s really easy to do and adds to my empowerment when I’m at the mechanic. I also have built a great relationship with my mechanic so I know they are being honest with me and they break down any repairs that need to be done before doing any work to my vehicle.
