Goodyear Launches National Car Care Clinics

In conjunction with October as Fall Car Care Month, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has announced it will host regularly scheduled car care clinics across its national network of more than 600 Goodyear Auto Service Center locations.

The clinics are free and open to the public, and will educate drivers on a variety of maintenance-related topics, including:

• Tire Care: learning the basics of tire wear, maintenance, inflation and how to change a flat tire;
• Under the hood: demonstrations on how to check your vehicle’s fluids and inspect belts and hoses;
• Electrical: inspecting lights, changing fuses and jump-starting a battery; and
• Under the body: a detailed explanation of items under the vehicle, such as shock absorbers, brakes and exhaust systems.

"Everyone can benefit from a basic understanding of automotive maintenance," said John Peer, vice president and general manager, Goodyear Retail. "Goodyear is committed to helping drivers understand how their vehicles work. We believe the more informed the consumer, the better the car care experience will be for everyone involved."

To help promote this effort, Goodyear has teamed up with the Car Care Council, a leader in educating consumers on automotive care.

"The Car Care Council is extremely pleased to work with Goodyear in hosting car care clinics at its retail outlets across the country," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Goodyear’s goal of educating consumers about the importance of automotive service and maintenance reinforces the ongoing efforts of our ‘Be Car Care Aware’ consumer education campaign."

Each month, Goodyear will host at least one car care clinic in each of its 36 districts across the country. Clinics will be led by a Goodyear store or service manager. To see if a car care clinic is coming to a store near you, visit the car care events page at www.carcare.org or contact your local Goodyear Auto Service Center (a store locator is available at www.goodyearautoservice.com).
