Motorists Save And Stay Safe With Monroe® Summer Promotion

June 5, 2007
Monroe, Michigan, June 5, 2007 – The bags are packed and the kids are excited…but have you had your vehicle safety checked? If you’re a motorist getting ready to hit the road this summer, make sure you check out the "Safe Summer Roadtrip" promotion from Monroe shocks and struts.

Drivers who purchase four qualifying Monroe Reflex or Sensa-Trac shocks and struts, Gas-Magnum shocks, Rancho RS9000X Pro Series shocks, Rancho RS9000X shocks, Rancho RSX shocks or Rancho RS5000 shocks are eligible for a mail-in rebate equal to the lowest cost unit on a four-corner sale.* The mail-in rebate is available from July 1 through July 31, 2007. Promotion forms are available online at

"There’s no better time to have a service professional check out your vehicle than before a vacation, and there’s no better time to save on premium ride control components than during the ‘Safe Summer Roadtrip’ promotion," said Richard Alameddine, vice president of marketing and engineering of Tenneco’s North American Aftermarket.

Monroe, a brand of Tenneco Inc (NYSE: TEN), and one of North America’s leading brands of shocks, struts and related automotive technologies, recommends a safety check on the vehicle’s safety-critical components, including shocks and struts, at 50,000-miles. Worn ride control components often degrade over time, making it harder for the driver to recognize accurate service intervals.

Backed by Tenneco’s exclusive "Safe and Sound Guarantee," Monroe and Rancho allow customers to try products for up to 90 days. If motorists are unsatisfied, they can return the qualifying products for a full refund of the product’s purchase price. (Plus labor expenses of up to $50 per axle. Restrictions apply. See for qualifying product and guarantee details.)

* Offer limited to the purchase of four (4) Monroe® Reflex™ shocks and/or struts, Sensa-Trac® shocks and/or struts or Gas-Magnum® shocks. Offer is also valid on Rancho RS9000X Pro Series, RS9000X, RSX and RS5000 shock absorbers. Excludes Rancho RS9000X Pro Series Coil-Over shocks RS19532-RS19536 Series. Rebate will equal the lowest cost unit on qualifying four-corner sales, excluding tax and installation charges.
