What's the difference between DriveSure roadside assistance and other roadside assistance offerings?
DriveSure provides renewable emergency services designed to deliver your customer back to your dealership. These benefits are similar to what you might expect from traditional roadside assistance, including lockout, fluid delivery, jump starts, and tire changes. But there is one important difference: DriveSure provides dealer-branded, dealer-loyal towing, bringing the vehicle to your service department every time it breaks down in your area, even when other authorized service providers are closer.
How far will DriveSure roadside assistance tow a vehicle?
DriveSure Roadside Assistance is provided to customers based on pre-negotiated contracted rates with service providers. Consequently, there is not a specific limit with regard to the distance the vehicle may be towed but is subject to the maximum covered amount under the DriveSure program.

Krex® Graphite Engine Lubricant
What is Krex® Graphite Engine Lubricant?
Krex® Graphite Engine Lubricant is a superior automotive lubricant (not an additive), dispersing millions of microscopic particles of graphite that enhance the effectiveness of motor oil. Krex® Graphite Engine Lubricant adheres to all of the internal components of the engine, protecting and lubricating all the engine’s vital moving parts: piston, bearings, valve stems, and lifters. In addition, Krex® Graphite Engine Lubricant improves engine compression, reduces energy consumption, and increases load-carrying capabilities.
How does the Krex® Graphite Engine warranty work?
If your dealership uses Krex® Graphite Engine Lubricant for your vehicle’s maintenance, you may qualify for a warranty that guarantees the lubricated parts of the vehicle’s engine for up to 10 years or 200,000 miles whichever occurs first. This warranty must be maintained by returning to the servicing dealer for the recommended maintenance service that includes Krex® Graphite Engine Lubricant at least every 6 months or 5,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
