Complimentary vehicle inspections available with no appointments necessary.

SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jiffy Lube locations throughout southwest Florida, from Sarasota to Naples, are offering free vehicle inspections in the wake of Hurricane Ian. Flood waters and road debris can damage vehicle's electronics, lubricants, undercarriage, steering/suspension systems, and tires. Customers whose cars, trucks, SUVs, or minivans are not performing as well as they should or once did, should visit a nearby Jiffy Lube. Trained technicians will conduct a thorough vehicle inspection, complimentary through Oct. 31, 2022.

"Our Jiffy Lube family is willing and able to help our community by making our vehicle inspections available to anyone in need - no appointment necessary," said Jason Thomas, co-owner of Jiffy Lube franchise South Bay Lube. "Not all our locations are currently open, as we, too, have been impacted by Hurricane Ian. But we are working tirelessly to open each location so that we can serve our community by getting our team members back to work servicing vehicles for a safe return to the road." 

Jiffy Lube technicians will conduct a comprehensive inspection to help ensure vehicles are safe to operate. If during the inspection damage is identified, the technician will diagnose the issue and explain options based on manufacturer recommendations.
