Keeping My Ride Alive From Jiffy Lube & Giveaway


My Toyota Camry has 108,000 miles on it! Since I don't want the expense of getting a new car, a high priority for me is keeping my car in good condition. That means getting regular oil changes and other maintenance. In this economy, I think that even more people want to extend the life of their vehicle.

Jiffy Lube has created a new Facebook community called Keeping My Ride Alive. This is a community for people who want to get the most miles and years from their vehicles. You can browse tips, photos, and stories from other people or add your own.

A 2010 Jiffy Lube International survey has some interesting results that I want to share with you.
- More than half of U.S. drivers hope to hit more than 150,000 miles on their vehicle before replacing it
- More than a quarter are looking to clock in more than 250,000 miles before throwing in the towel
- 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
- Convenience: 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
- Speed: More than half of U.S. drivers (59%) agree it is important to have their oil change finished in 30 minutes or less
.

To help keep your vehicle in tip top shape, Jiffy Lube offers the Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change to address these needs, providing drivers with much more than just an oil and filter change. Watch the video to learn more about this service.
