My New Ride + Maintenance Tips

A couple months ago, I bought my first car! Poor Lucille died on the side of the road last summer and we've been saving up to pick up a newer ride. I loved the whole experience of picking out a car and negotiating a price. It was nerve-wracking and exciting all at the same time! 

Now that I've gone through all the hard work of researching for the right car and negotiating the right price for my budget, I'm hyper vigilant about maintaining it with only the best products. 

Speaking of only the best, I picked up Mobil 1™ Extended Performance from Walmart. The synthetic oil not only protects my engine, but lessens oil consumption and waste! To see which oil will work best for your ride, take this quiz! Earth Day is coming up in April, so being aware of your car maintenance is a great way to take care of the world around us. 

It's crazy busy, so I need multiple reminders to do the maintenance tasks in my life! A few ways I remind myself to take my car in for an oil change at the Walmart Auto Care Center is:

-Add the reminder in my phone calendar. Then attach an alarm 1 week ahead to remind me to schedule an appointment

-Write it on the family calendar at our command center in the kitchen

-Ask the Walmart Auto Care Center to put a tag on the inside of my windshield 

In honor of Earth Day,  Mobil 1™ is giving Walmart customers the chance to drive away with a Chevy Equinox! Even if you don't win the big ticket item, you'll have the opportunity to get $10 off your next Mobil 1™ purchase at Walmart. Below is all the information you need to enter!
