Automotive Value

HOUSTON, June 24, 2013

HOUSTON, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Quaker State^®, one of the industry's
most innovative motor oil brands, has been named the official motor oil of
Kelley Blue Book^®, www.kbb.com, the leading provider of new and used car
information. For the first time in its 87-year history, Kelley Blue Book has
decided to specify the use of Quaker State oils in all of its long-term test
vehicles. 

"More than ever, consumers are seeking practical, value-focused automotive
information from trusted sources," says Gita Gidwani, Quaker State Global
Brand Manager. "By working alongside Kelley Blue Book, we can achieve this
mission and be a valuable, collaborative resource for consumers."

The relationship will be activated through significant media and public
relations support, one part of which is a series of informational videos
focused on ways consumers can drive longevity and durability for their
vehicle. One additional feature will showcase an in-depth discussion with a
KBB.com expert, along with Quaker State technical experts covering the topic
of fuel economy.

"During the past few years, the average age of vehicles on the road has risen
consistently. In fact, we've seen an uptick in the average search age for a
vehicle on the website go from three to five years old," says Jack Nerad,
executive editorial director and executive market analyst of Kelley Blue
Book's KBB.com. "Knowing there are brands like Quaker State that put together
products and programs to help consumers continue to squeeze value from their
vehicles creates a connection that the Kelley Blue Book brand can support."

With this in mind, the public relations initiative that Quaker State and
Kelley Blue Book will be kicking off is designed to provide consumers with
value-oriented seasonal automotive and driving advice, both online and in
retail stores.

Initiated in 2011 with the Cash Back Warranty Program, Quaker State offers
consumers the opportunity to get the Kelley Blue Book^® Value of their
vehicles (up to $3,000) when they reach 300,000 miles under the warranty
program using eligible Quaker State products.

Quaker State and Kelley Blue Book have a shared mission to equip motorists
with practical information to help inform vehicle decisions.
