Champion® Encourages Consumers to Keep Up with Routine Car Maintenance during National Car Care Month

April 24, 2019

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., April 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Is your car ready for Spring? April is National Car Care Month, sponsored by the Car Care Council, where drivers are encouraged to perform routine maintenance on their vehicles to keep them in peak operating condition.  Motorists who not only follow recommended vehicle maintenance schedules, but also take care to have their vehicles inspected for wear and damage seasonally, are taking major steps toward extending the lives of their vehicles. 

After the long winter season, most vehicles will need upkeep, whether it be new tires; new spark plugs; an oil change; a new battery; brakes; or new cabin air filter.  For many of these issues, let Champion® help.  For well over a century, the Champion brand has been one of the automotive aftermarket industry's most recognized brands, and in addition to its iconic spark plugs, today offers an extensive product line including filters, batteries, and lighting. 

"Throughout the last few years, Champion has become more than just a 'spark plug brand,' and now offers a full range of products that drivers can use to improve their vehicle performance and reliability," said Rebecca Mahan, director, marketing communications.  "Consumers have long trusted the Champion brand to deliver quality products, and during National Car Care Month, our customers have the chance to install more Champion products on their vehicles to get the most from their cars.

"Why just maintain your vehicle when you can Champion it?"

Also, this Spring, Champion continues the 'There's a Champion in Here' campaign designed to ignite the will to win and celebrate the Champion in all of us. Be sure to catch our consumer advertisements on television, digital and social media nationwide.
