Get Ready to ‘Save a Squirrel’ and Some Cash Through Monroe’s Fall Promotion

As the leaves begin to change and the squirrels prepare for winter, the Monroe “Save a Squirrel” program will celebrate the fall vehicle repair season through the Monroe “Save the Squirrels!” promotion for motorists replacing their shocks or struts.

“This is a great opportunity for motorists to have their shocks or struts checked and replaced, if necessary, while receiving exciting savings on future automotive repairs,” said Sheryl Bomia, North American programs manager, Tenneco. “Plus, it’s a fun – and worthwhile – addition to our ‘Save a Squirrel’ program!”

The Monroe shocks and struts brand of Tenneco Inc. will launch the promotion during the fall car maintenance season to help support its “Save a Squirrel” campaign that encourages consumers to monitor and replace shocks at 50,000 miles.

The fall promotion rewards motorists for purchasing premium Monroe and Rancho ride control products by awarding up to a $60 comeback certificate by mail for future automotive services.

Available from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, 2008, motorists who purchase four Monroe Reflex or Sensa-Trac struts, or two Rancho RS9000XL shocks and two Rancho QuickLIFT units will earn a $60 comeback certificate. Motorists who purchase two Reflex struts and two Reflex shocks, two Sensa-Trac struts and two Sensa-Trac shocks, two Monroe Quick-Struts, four Rancho RS9000XL Pro Series shocks, four RS9000XL shocks or two Rancho QuickLIFT units will earn a $40 comeback certificate. Motorists who purchase four Reflex, four Sensa-Trac, four Gas-Magnum, four Rancho RS5000 or four Rancho RSX shocks will earn a $20 comeback certificate.

The “Save a Squirrel” campaign advises consumers that vehicle steering, stopping and stability characteristics depend on the “Safety Triangle” undercar system of shock absorbers, struts, brakes and related parts. When shocks and struts are worn out, they could lose their ability to hold the tires against the road surface (under certain driving conditions), potentially degrading steering and stopping performance. Shocks and struts also play important roles in promoting vehicle stability by helping to control weight transfer in hard-stopping situations and tight turns.

The 50,000-mile ride control replacement recommendation was established by the Motorist Assurance Program, an independent organization committed to strengthening the relationship between vehicle owners and automotive service providers across North America.*

Monroe shocks and struts, backed by Tenneco’s Safe & Sound Guarantee, allow consumers to try qualifying Monroe products for up to 90 days. If they are not satisfied, consumers can return the qualifying products for a full refund of the product’s purchase price. (Plus labor expenses of up to $50 per axle. Restrictions apply. See for qualifying products and guarantee details.)

Rancho shocks are backed by the “Rancho Ride Guarantee,” a 90-day offer on RS9000XL shocks. The Ride Guarantee allows consumers to try RS9000XL shocks for up to 90 days, and, if dissatisfied, return the units for full refund of the product’s purchase price. (See for details and restrictions.)
