The new year is here! For motorists, this means getting your vehicles ready—may it be for travels, leisure, or getting you to where you and your family need to be this 2021. But how can you ensure that your car is always ready for these travels?
According to Prestone Philippines, the leading manufacturer of cutting-edge coolants and brake fluids in the country, the best way to prepare your car is by doing periodic preventive maintenance to ensure that it is road-ready. You can check your vehicle on your own by inspecting its fluids like oil, coolant, brake fluid, and fuel to its parts like tires, lights, engine, and battery. However, it is still recommended to have a trusted mechanic examine it.
Another way to prepare your vehicle is by giving it high-quality products like Prestone’s Auto Transmission Fluid (ATF) to assist in stopping leaks and condition dry and cracked seals. Power Steering Fluid (PSF) to maintain smooth power steering operation. They also have DOT 4 Synthetic Hi-Temp Brake Fluid for systems requiring high-temperature DOT 4 brake fluid.
Prestone also wants to remind motorists to stay cautious with the products they use on their vehicles. Using fake brake fluids can permanently damage or overheat your vehicle’s engine and lead to accidents.
To know its authenticity, check the product’s details for imperfections, and ensure it has a PS mark or ICC stickers issued by the Philippines’ Bureau of Product Standards. Look out for sellers offering suspicious prices and discounts. Many counterfeit products also have 900ml packaging.
“With the new year upon us, we need to keep moving forward and create a brighter future for our families and us. Since our vehicles are crucial in our lives, we need to make sure that it stays in its best form for it to continue helping us every day,” said Paolo Lao, marketing director of Prestone Philippines.
