Mazda is honoring the nation’s healthcare workers that are at the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic by offering free oil changes and cleaning services at its U.S. dealers. The program kicks off on April 16 and isn’t limited to Mazda owners, since Mazda will give free oil changes to most makes and models from other automakers.
The program is called the Essential Car Care program and Mazda will invest at least $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.”
Mazda isn’t the only automaker that’s paying tribute to healthcare workers, since Honda has also announced a special discount for healthcare workers and first responders.
