AKRON — Goodyear — through its Goodyear Auto Service and Just Tires retail businesses — is offering "significant" savings throughout March on tires and a range of automotive services through a March Deal Days promotion.
The promotion includes discounts on services such as oil changes, alignments, batteries, brake service, etc. along with free safety checks.
"It's important for drivers to have their vehicles checked for necessary maintenance as they prepare for upcoming months of travel following the winter driving season, which can pose a variety of challenges for your car," Sam Rosen, manager of the Goodyear Auto Service store in Fort Drum, N.Y., said in a statement provided by Goodyear.
To help promote the event, Goodyear has enlisted Major League Baseball (MLB) announcer and former player Kevin Millar as a spokesman for the importance of spring car care, which it's describing as a "different kind of 'spring training.'"
"March Deal Days aims to make springtime auto maintenance affordable and convenient for motorists," Mr. Millar said, "and our technicians have the knowledge and expertise to get drivers' cars road-ready for the busy spring and summer driving seasons."
Mr. Millar — who played a dozen seasons with the Boston Red Sox, Florida Marlins and Toronto Blue Jays — said, "Like spring training — where ballplayers focus on the fundamentals and prepare for a long baseball season — my friends at Goodyear Auto Service and Just Tires have the same mindset for auto maintenance and upcoming driving seasons.
"They are committed to exceeding expectations and delivering on auto service needs, helping drivers get the most out of their cars," he said.
