Cottman Transmission & Total Auto Care, the nationwide transmission and auto repair brand, will celebrate Fall Car Care Month with a sweepstakes promotion where a lucky customer can win $100,000.

Fall Car Care Month

“We want to make everyone aware of the need to pay attention to their cars, especially during Fall Car Care Month,” said Sue Burg, Senior Director of Advertising for Cottman. “Drivers need to have regular maintenance to keep their cars running safely and smoothly, and fall is the time when cars need to be checked so they are properly prepared for the tough winter driving season.”

Fall car care generally includes:

  • checks of heaters, wipers, lights and battery
  • replacement of filters for fuel, air and transmission
  • flushing and refilling antifreeze in the cooling system. Fall is also a good time to check tires for wear and to check the car’s braking system.

Burg said the $100,000 Cottman Sweepstakes promotion will begin Oct. 1, 2015 and run through Nov. 30.

Customers who enter will be asked to rank in order their 10 favorite or most-needed Cottman automotive services, which include brake system inspection, charging system inspection, clutch service, cooling system service, exhaust system service, fuel system and throttle body service, platinum or premium transmission service, single point transmission service, and transmission reseal.

The entrant whose list matches a predetermined “mystery list” will receive $100,000. The prize will be split evenly if there is more than one winner, and if there is no winner, the contestant whose list is closest the “mystery list” will receive the $1000.
