Mazda Offers Healthcare Workers
Free Oil change, Deep Cleaning
These are interesting times for all businesses, but particularly so for the car industry. In most states auto dealerships are recognized as essential, but few of us are thinking about a new or used car purchase right now, unless the thing in the driveway just won’t move. But the miles add up, oil needs to be changed and – if you’re a healthcare worker on the front lines – your personal car can seem all-too-personal if you’re carrying something from the hospital into your home, via your car. To help, Mazda and its North American dealers have partnered to change your oil and clean your car, all of it folded into an Essential Car Care program for healthcare workers. It reads like a great idea, so if you’re in healthcare and rely on your own wheels to get to and from work, get yourself – and your car, any car – to a Mazda dealer. You can also contact car park cleaning services to get rid of any imperfections in your driveway, that way you come home to a clean property, at least on the exterior..
IRVINE, Calif. (April 15, 2020) – Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) announced it will provide a free standard oil change and enhanced cleaning services for U.S. healthcare workers at participating dealers nationwide. This program, which begins on April 16, is not limited to Mazda owners 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.
“Supporting the communities where we live and work is rooted deeply in Mazda’s 100-year history. 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.”
Inspired by Mazda dealers who implemented similar programs for healthcare workers locally, Mazda quickly developed a nationwide plan to partner with its dealer network to invest in this initiative honoring healthcare heroes across the U.S.
“Mazda dealers prioritize giving back to the communities in which they operate,” Jim McDonald, Mazda’s National Dealer Advisory Council Chairman said. “In this challenging time, we want to do what we can to support our local healthcare workers. We deeply appreciate all they have done and will continue to do in the fight against COVID-19.”
In order to help ensure the safety of healthcare workers and service employees, dealers participating in the Essential Car Care initiative have 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.
