Mazda providing free oil changes, enhanced cleaning services for U.S. healthcare workers
With nurses, doctors, and other healthcare workers putting in long hours due to the coronavirus outbreak, it's easy to understand how vehicle maintenance may fall by the wayside. Mazda has announced that it will provide free standard oil changes and enhanced cleaning services for healthcare workers at participating dealers nationwide.
"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."

The program begins April 16 and is not limited to Mazda owners. It is available for most makes and models from other manufacturers.
Called the "Essential Car Care" program, the initiative was developed in partnership with the Mazda dealer network, which will invest a minimum of $5 million.
The Essential Car Care program is the only automaker-driven initiative of its kind. Ford, GM, and FCA have all worked to produce a variety of supplies to support the healthcare industry. Honda is donating millions to hunger relief organizations. Hyundai is funding drive-thru testing centers.
