Mazda is offering free standard oil changes and enhanced cleaning services for healthcare workers at participating dealerships nationwide.
Inspired by local dealerships that implemented similar programs for healthcare workers in their communities, the Irvine-based team at Mazda’s North American headquarters announced in April that the company would expand the initiative nationwide.
Healthcare workers do not have to be Mazda owners to receive the complimentary oil change and car cleaning service. The program is available for most makes and models from other manufacturers.
“Mazda dealers prioritize giving back to the communities in which they operate,” Jim McDonald, Mazda National Dealer Advisory Council Chairman said. “In this challenging time, we want to do what we can to support our local healthcare workers. We deeply appreciate all they have done and will continue to do in the fight against COVID-19.”
The Essential Car Care program, developed in partnership with the Mazda dealer network, will invest at least $5 million as part of the initiative.
The program will follow enhanced vehicle cleaning protocol for high-touch interior and exterior surfaces using Mazda and EPA-approved cleansers. Mazda has also encouraged dealers to continue following the recommendations from the CDC and local public health and government officials, along with workplace personal hygiene practices to help ensure the safety of everyone in the service areas.
Mazda North American Operations is headquartered at 200 Spectrum Center Drive in Irvine Spectrum.
