Mazda dealers to offer free oil changes, car cleaning for health care workers
Mazda North American Operations has announced it will provide free standard oil changes and enhanced cleaning services for U.S. healthcare workers at participating dealers nationwide. The program begins on April 16 and continues through May 4. The free service is not limited to Mazda vehicles, and is available for most makes and models from other manufacturers. The Essential Car Care program, developed in partnership with the Mazda dealer network, will invest a minimum of $5 million as part of the initiative.
"We are honored to give back to those dedicated to saving lives during this pandemic," MNAO President Jeff Guyton said. "We understand the important role vehicles play in people's lives, and by partnering with our dealer network, we hope to make a meaningful impact in communities around the country."
In order to help ensure the safety of healthcare workers and service employees, dealers participating in the Essential Car Care initiative have also committed to enhanced vehicle cleaning of high-touch interior and exterior surfaces using Mazda and EPA-approved cleansers. Mazda has also encouraged dealers to continue following the recommendations from the CDC and local public health and government officials, along with workplace personal hygiene practices to help ensure the safety of everyone in the service areas.
Portland-area dealers confirmed to be participating in the program include Gladstone Mazda at 19405 SE McLoughlin Blvd, in Gladstone, and Royal Moore Mazda at 1380 SE River Rd, in Hillsboro. In Vancouver, Alan Webb Mazda at 3716 NE 66th Ave is participating. Other Mazda dealers may be participating as well, but call ahead to be sure.
According to dealer service personnel at Royal Moore, appointments are preferred to minimize wait times, and loaner vehicles are available. Royal Moore is also offering vehicle pickup and return services to health care professionals.
