Jiffy Lube "Keeping My Ride Alive" {$35 Gift Card Giveaway - 2 winners!}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, LittleEagle and B. Wilson!}

On my long list of Things That I Don't Understand But Probably Should is cars. They're in good company with airplanes (they're massive and heavy. How in the world do they go up?), telephones (I dial numbers and a phone on the other side of the world rings? What?), television (the picture is sent through the air and somehow arrives on the screen? Really?) and many more.

What I do know, however, is that the days of continually trading in for a brand new car year after year have passed for a lot of people and quality really is key. Instead of tossing more money out the window unnecessarily, there are countless drivers that take pride in a vehicle that is a little older and has racked up high mileage.

And now, thanks to Jiffy Lube, there is a Facebook community just for celebrating the miles you've logged and the milestones your have reached with your car: Keeping My Ride Alive.

With the creation of Keeping My Ride Alive, those drivers who aim to attain high mileage on their vehicles now have a place to share their personal story, upload an image of their ride or just browse the galleries and chat about how they keep their car running smoothly.

According to a recent study conducted by Jiffy Lube International, more than half of U.S. drivers hope to have more than 150,000 miles on their vehicle before replacing it with a new one and more than a quarter are hoping to make it to 250,000 or more. But... how do we get our car to that point?

When it comes to holding onto vehicles longer and extending the life of any one car, drivers know that regular maintenance can make a big difference. However, people are busy and, just like other aspects of life, the best things are easy and convenient. Everyone knows that a regular oil change is extremely important to help protect your vehicle's life, but what we all are now looking for is to have other key vehicle parts and fluids checked at the same time... and have it all done in 30 minutes or less.

Doesn't it make sense to have multiple services performed quickly and in a single visit? Who wants to have to be without their car for any longer than they have to or have to return again the following month?

Jiffy Lube understands all of that and offers the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change in order to meet the various needs of today's drivers. More than just an oil and filter change, included are the changing, inspecting, checking/filling and cleaning of many key vehicle parts and fluids (e.g. tire pressure, brake fluid, power steering fluid, exterior lights and many more) and they will even clean the exterior windows and vacuum the floors. Practical convenience all in one!

As keeping a vehicle alive and running beyond its years is a source of pride, particularly in tough economic times, it is time for like-minded enthusiasts to have a place to celebrate their high-mileage accomplishments. Whether your odometer is showing double or triple digits, head over to Keeping My Ride Alive and check out the community. Then share your story by uploading an image of yourself with your vehicle into your mileage category!

Plus, thanks to the generosity of Jiffy Lube, two people will be on the right track to keeping their car in top shape, because...

Two lucky people will win a $35 gift card to Jiffy Lube!
Use them for any of Jiffy Lube's great services at their
2,000+ locations across the country!
