Tenneco Automotive plans to offer its Safety First promotion involving purchases of Monroe shocks and struts again this fall after ending the spring version of the promotion June 30.
The program provides consumers with service comeback certificates worth up to $75 for replacing worn shocks and struts with Monroe products.
The comeback certificates are two-party checks, made out to the consumer and retailer that can be used for future automotive service at the participating shop, a company spokesman said.
The fall promotion will run Sept. 1 through Oct. 31 and will include an expanded list of products covered by the comeback certificate offer.
Vehicle shops participating in the promotion must be members of the Tenneco Automotive Expert Plus program, which provides a full range of technical and promotional support services to leading automotive repair businesses.
Consumers who replace four worn shock absorbers with Monroe Sensa-Trac, Reflex or Gas-Magnum shocks will receive a $25 comeback certificate.
Vehicle owners will get a $50 comeback certificate with the installation of two Sensa-Trac or Reflex shocks and two Sensa-Trac or Reflex struts and will receive a $75 certificate for the installation of four Sensa-Trac or Reflex struts.
The Safety First promotion is part of the ongoing Monroe Safety Triangle consumer education campaign, which focuses attention on the interconnected systems and components that affect steering, stopping and stability, Tenneco said.
The campaign encourages vehicle owners to request periodic Safety Triangle chassis inspections in order to identify worn or damaged components, including shock absorbers, struts, tires and brakes.
