Shop offers free car maintenance to troops' families

By SESHADRI KUMAR
Chronicle Correspondent

A local auto repair shop has introduced a new program to help families of U.S. troops deployed in combat zones.

Ray Moon, owner of Beechnut Auto, 4209 H Street between Alief-Clodine Road and High Star, said he is offering free auto maintenance and discounted repairs to families of soldiers throughout their deployment.

Moon has named the program "For Offshore Relief of Deployment."

"Soldiers in combat need not worry about their family car breaking down on the way to school or the grocery store," he said. "This program takes the concern of caring for the family vehicle away from the soldiers and their loved ones, allowing them to focus on more important issues at hand."

Under the FORD program, basic maintenance services include, but are not limited to, oil and lube changes, washes, tire rotation, road test, safety inspections every three months, and brake and transmission inspections every six months, Moon said.

In addition to the free maintenance, the soldiers' families will receive half-priced repairs on their Ford, Lincoln or Mercury automobiles and referrals for repairs on other vehicles.

"We are challenging others in the automotive industry to join in the effort to provide peace of mind to the soldiers in harms' way and car care services to their loved ones," Moon said.

Moon is treasurer of the Alief Super Neighborhood Council. He periodically distributes car maintenance tips and information on other related auto industry issues at meetings.

He served in the U.S. Army from 1984-87, although he was not deployed into active combat.

Since he first announced the program in mid-April via the Internet, he has gotten a few calls but no military families have brought in their cars for free maintenance, Moon said.

Family members do not have to wait until the soldier is deployed. They only need to bring in a deployment letter for service and the process will continue after the soldier's departure, Moon said.

More than 90 percent of automobile breakdowns occur because of improper or neglectful maintenance, so preventive care is essential, Moon said.

To find out if your family qualifies for the program or to join forces with Beechnut Auto in supporting U.S. troops, call Moon at 281-933-3673.

Press Release

Free Car Maintenance for the Families of Soldiers in Combat

The Ford Doctors at Beechnut Auto, a local auto repair shop, launch an inventive cost-free program to help deployed soldiers and their families care for the family vehicle.

Houston, TX (PR WEB) April 18, 2007 Houston-area Beechnut Auto is the nation's first auto repair shop to provide free auto maintenance and discounted repairs for the loved ones of soldiers in combat. With the F.O.R.D. Program, which stands for "For Offshore Relief of Deployment," soldiers in combat don't have to be concerned about their family car breaking down on the way to school or the grocery store.

"Neither soldiers nor their families need anything else to worry about," says Ray Moon, owner of Beechnut Auto. "This program takes the concern of caring for the family vehicle away from the soldiers and their loved ones, allowing them to concentrate on the more important issues at hand."

With the F.O.R.D. Program, Beechnut Auto provides all basic maintenance for the family's primary car throughout the deployment. This includes, but isn't limited to, oil and lube changes, washes, and safety inspections every three months and tire rotation, road test, and brake and transmission inspections every six months.

Over 90 percent of side-of-the-road breakdowns occur because of improper or neglectful maintenance, so Beechnut Auto, since 1990, focuses on preventative care. "No one, especially our soldiers at war, should have to think about their loved ones stuck on the side of the road, so instead of fixing problems when they occur, we concentrate on avoiding the problems in the first place," said Moon.

In addition to maintenance, with the F.O.R.D. Program, soldiers and their families receive half-priced repairs on their Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury and trustworthy shop referrals for repairs on other vehicles. Beechnut Auto is also challenging the automotive industry to join in the effort of providing peace of mind to the soldiers in harms way and car care services to their loved ones.

The family-owned and operated Beechnut Auto has been featured on NBC's Dateline and in the Houston Press, has a customer satisfaction rate over 98 percent, and received a 100 percent repair effectiveness rating by The State of Texas.

For more information about the F.O.R.D. Program, please visit www.beechnutauto.com. To find out if your family qualifies or to join forces with Beechnut Auto in supporting the troops, please contact Ray Moon at 281-933-3673 or stop by Beechnut Auto at 4209 H Street, Houston TX, 77072.
