"We recognize that it has been a challenging financial time for many of our customers. As a result, most are looking for ways to make sure their money goes farther," said Brent Cuthbertson, Vice President of Marketing, Mr. Lube Canada. "Fortunately, regular maintenance can go a long way in extending the life of a vehicle and protecting what many consider to be a prized asset.
