Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair is giving away a free oil-change including a tire rotation to any customer who brings in a new, unwrapped toy for the Marines’ “Toys for Tots” program from now until December 12th. This is the Pinellas-based auto repair franchise’s 15th year giving away oil changes to those who donate toys. Customers have the option of trading the new toy for an oil change and tire rotation on the spot or exchanging the toy for a voucher for a free future oil change and tire rotation or $20 off any service. There are 17 Ice Cold Air locations throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties. “We are very proud to join the Marines and their exceptional program for our 15th year. It is an honor to help facilitate our customer’s support and making positive impacts in the lives of children in our community,” said Tina M. Denham, President of Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair. “Our customers and community have been very good to us for 50 years, and acting as a drop off location for Toys for Tots is an excellent way for us to give back to the community and our customers for their support.” Over the years, it is estimated that Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair customers have donated 25,000 toys. This year Denham says they aspire to donate over 2000 more, “our loyal customers have a proven history, and I know they are eager to support the program again this year. We are asking for even more community members to take advantage of this offer and help us meet our goal.” The toys should be of similar value, in the original packaging and unwrapped. Donations will be accepted at almost all of the 17 Ice Cold Air locations. Those interested in taking advantage of the promotion should call or stop by their local Ice Cold Air location to ensure participation. Visit www.icecoldair.com for a list of locations. # # #

Everyone there was great. Did their job – moved on to next. Good to see that. Got it done. Saw them explaining jobs good.
I was more than satisfied. Personnel very experienced and kind – will be back for services.
A/C stopped. They gave me options and I chose the best for me. A/C working again. I was satisfied.
Jay is great. I trust Jay & the staff! When they tell me something needs work now, I know that it does.
I had made an appointment for an oil change and ended up needing a new water pump. Jay handled the unexpected repair professionally without making me feel like an extra burden on an already busy Friday. Jay’s skills at managing the multiple demands are fantastic. He keeps the excellent team on task.
No need to improve in my opinion. I really appreciate all the hard work and help!
Tony did my oil change. Very professional & great customer service along with Jay. Thank you.
I had to go back to the shop a good few times but in the end I’m happy & car working again. Ashley, Jay & Tony provided excellent customer service.
Tony was amazing – great customer service, was willing and able to answer all my questions, awesome person overall!
Thank you to Jay & Tony for providing excellent customer service, picking me up & having my car repaired (a/c system) on the same day.
