Motor Oil Matters $50 Giveaway


Get your motor oil changed at a reputable dealer.

Get your motor oil changed at a reputable dealer.

Yesterday I went to get my oil changed. You know that once every 3 or 4 month thing that everyone with a car must do if you want your car to keep on running well. Motor Oil Matters gave me this great tool to take with me. It’s an infographic with lots of questions to inform yourself before you go get your oil changed. An informed consumer is one who is looking to make sure that the oil change places do their job and do it right for you.  

For my experience the customer service advisor had no problem going over the list with me. He took his time to explain everything and make sure all my questions were answered. I felt better just going  there armed with knowledge. I was thankful for Steve not minding taking his time out of his day to make a girl feel more comfortable leaving my car to get worked on and the oil changed. What a nice resource. Thanks Steve.

    The extra $50 would be a god send. Hubby and I are both medical disabled and never make ends meet. Between doctors, prescriptions, anfd other medical expenses there is never enough funds for food for the entire month. We eat a lot of Raman noodles and peanut butter sandwiches.

    I can get almost two weeks worth of food with $50.
