While we still find ourselves in the midst of a lockdown due to the ongoing threat of the coronavirus, there’s no stopping the Christmas spirit, especially for us Filipinos. Amid the celebrations with immediate family members, the car enthusiasts among us also find ourselves giving their vehicles that much needed TLC during this holiday season.
But even if you’re not exactly into cars, it is still a good idea to bring in your vehicle for service. This is especially true if you’re one of those owners who may fall under the following categories:
– You may have missed your periodic maintenance schedule due to the lockdown. Yes, a lot of vehicle owners did miss out on vehicle service. And rightfully so as our health and well being always come first. Bit with carmakers like Ford Philippines giving extensions on vehicle maintenance schedules, there’s no excuse not to avail of such offers.
– Your vehicle has been idle for quite a while: In line with the lockdown, a lot of vehicles have been relegated to the garage, leaving them inactive for quite a few months. This is why experts recommend having them checked thoroughly before getting them back in service. Check things like brakes, tires, and fluids to ensure that these won’t fail once you’re out there.
– You’re headed out this holiday season: This last one is really a given as it is always advised to those going on a road trip. Yes, a break from being stuck at home, provided you follow safety protocols, isn’t such a bad idea. But to make it even more enjoyable, take the time to check on your vehicle before heading out. This way, you avoid being stuck on the roadside simply because you failed to notice that that radiator hose was leaking.
But whatever your reason may be, give your ride some TLC before the year ends. Happy holidays!
