'Shocking' Monroe rebates to be given

Sept. 1, 2005

Tenneco Automotive Inc.'s new "Count Shockula" promotion will reward vehicle owners with a cash-back rebate on one premium-level Monroe shock or strut with the purchase of three qualifying units in September or October.

Tenneco is launching the promotion "to remind consumers that they can help protect their driving safety by having shocks, struts and other safety-critical undercar components inspected as part of their fall maintenance regimen," say Tenneco officials.

"'Count Shockula’ is a fun and effective way to spread the word that shocks and struts can help provide safe steering, stopping and stability characteristics, and that these components should be replaced on a scheduled basis," says Ric Alameddine, vice president of marketing, North American Aftermarket, Tenneco Automotive.

Consumers who buy three premium Sensa-Trac or Monroe Reflex shocks or struts or Monroe Gas-Magnum shock absorbers from a participating dealer during the promotion will qualify for a mail-in rebate equal to the value of the fourth unit for the same vehicle.

The promotion also covers the Monroe brand’s new Reflex Monotube shock absorber for light trucks and sport-utility vehicles.
