Attention teachers! You can get a free oil change from Mazda now through September 30th. It's part of Mazda's new Essential Car Care Educators program. It offers free standard oil changes at participating dealers nationwide. You don't even have to own a Mazda, as the offer applies to most makes and models. The program follows in the footsteps of Mazda's Essential Car Care Program for healthcare workers offered during the beginning of the pandemic last year.
“Mazda has a history of serving communities and this program is our way of expressing gratitude to the education community,” MNAO President and CEO Jeff Guyton said. “By partnering with our dealer network to provide vehicle maintenance, we hope to assist educators who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic as the new school year begins.”
Along with the free oil changes, Mazda says the service includes interior and exterior vehicle cleaning to help ensure the safety of local educators. Some participating dealerships will also provide school supplies, and vehicle pick-up and return at educators’ convenience.
To find out what dealers are participating and for more on the terms and conditions, service scheduling, eligibility, and other information, visit the program's website.
“Mazda dealers are at our best when we’re serving the community in which we work,” said NDAC Chair Philip Van Riper. “Throughout this difficult pandemic, we’ve been proud to partner with Mazda, from the Essential Car Care program providing healthcare workers free oil changes, through Mazda Heroes and now the new Essential Car Care for teachers, coaches and staff at all levels of education in our communities.”
In April of 2020, Mazda launched its Essential Car Care program to provide support for healthcare workers who needed reliable transportation. Last year, the automaker also launched Mazda Heroes, a program honoring individuals across the country who selflessly dedicated themselves to their communities throughout 2020. MNAO selected 50 deserving people and provided gave each of them a Mazda MX-5 Miata 100th Anniversary Special Edition.
