Road Trip Ready with Pennzoil Summer Rollback

Is your car ready for a road trip?  Better yet, an off-road trip?  I knew I was pushing it with the time/mileage between oil changes. There aren't many oil change options where I live and my schedule was not aligning with oil change hours.  My SUV was way over due.

I was quickly reminded of Walmart's Automotive Care Center when I noticed the big Pennzoil oil display in front of the friendly guys behind the counter.  I walked over to check out how long we'd have to wait...
There was no wait!  Awesome. I was asked what kind of service I wanted for my vehicle.  I told them my car's mileage is nearing 80k, so they suggested the Pennzoil High Mileage oil change which helps to reduce leaks and oil consumption in worn or higher mileage engines.  The motor oil is specifically designed for new or late model vehicles with over 75k miles, to help keep engines running clean and going strong for a long time.
Speaking of running clean...
After shopping around the store for about 15 minutes, the car center called me on my cell phone.  They wanted to show me my air filter.  "Okay, yeah...I need a new one."  I had a darn mouse living in my garage/under the hood of my car most of the winter.  I had cleaned out the bed it had made out of some insulation and a rug that was in the garage.  
One of the Walmart auto guys waved me into the bay to show me the air filter and the area below where the air filter goes.  There was a huge pile of sunflower seeds.  We laughed and I asked if he had a ShopVac to vacuum away all of the seeds (presumably from my son's baseball bag).  Oops.
I was so impressed with the level of service at the Walmart Automotive Center.  I will take my car back again and again and completely trust it in the care of these guys.  They were awesome and I let them know how much I appreciated their service and genuine concern.
It sure helps to feel confident in my vehicle care and performance for the roads we travel all summer to get to trails.
I did my first high country hike of the season last weekend.  The creeks are still raging with snow melt.
 We hiked high enough to find snow fields still covering the trails.
 My favorite part of some of these hikes is when the car hits pavement again- no more dirt roads.  I don't want to be left on some of these back-country roads with a car that hasn't been properly maintained. I feel safe this season that my car will get us to all of the places we want to go and back home.  
This is still my favorite photo of my kids on the top of the car on a warm summer night.  Take care of your car so it can take care of you!
Where do you like to travel in the summer?  Is your car ready to hit the roads?  From June 10th - September 9th, Pennzoil oil changes will be on Rollback at Walmart Automotive Care Center stores.
    • High Mileage $35.88, compared to the regular Walmart price of $39.88. {Industry standard price is $46}
    • Platinum Full Synthetic $45.88, compared to the regular Walmart price of $49.88. {Industry standard price $66}

  1. We have a couple of road trips coming up soon, and I know we'll need an oil change (or two). Thanks for sharing! #client
