It’s September, which, in the world of automotive maintenance and repair, means it’s time for Shocktober, the Monroe Shocks and Struts brand’s popular promotion that offers significant savings to consumers who help protect their driving safety by replacing worn ride control units.
Through to Oct. 31, 2014, the Shocktober mail-in offer enables consumers to get four qualifying Monroe or Rancho shocks or struts for the price of three through a participating vehicle service provider or parts store. Consumers who qualify for the rebate will receive by mail a rewards cheque equal to the lowest cost unit, up to the current suggested list price. Visit www.monroe.com for program rules and restrictions.
“Shocktober is a fun and rewarding way to focus on the safety-critical role of your shocks and struts,” said Sheryl Bomia, programs manager, North America Aftermarket, Tenneco. “Fall is a great time to take care of important repairs, and this promotion helps educate consumers about the importance of replacing worn components that could be affecting their vehicles’ ride and handling characteristics.”
Shocks and struts play important roles in safe driving by helping deliver satisfactory steering, stopping and stability. Their damping action helps maintain movement of the vehicle’s suspension within safe limits. This, in turn, helps the brakes do their job by maintaining tire traction and distributing the vehicle’s weight across all four wheels. Shocks and struts also limit the transfer of vehicle weight from front to back when braking, and from side to side around turns. In addition, properly functioning shocks and struts help protect tires from abnormal wear.
Monroe Shocktober rebate submission forms are available through participating automotive parts and service providers and online at www.monroe.com. Rebate does not cover installation/labor costs. All submissions must be postmarked by December 1, 2014. Other restrictions apply.
