Motorists up north bonded over free vehicle checks and discounted car parts as Bosch Car Service held the North Luzon leg of its Car Clinic Road Show last weekend.
Bosch associates conducted free diagnostic checks and emission tests, and gave expert automotive advice at The Drive in SM Baguio while Lumie’re Autotech offered discounts on Bosch parts. Similar activities were held with various Bosch partners: Northeast Car Care Centre in Ilocos, Dan's Car Audio and Accessories in Pangasinan, and TopGear Auto Service Center in Metro Manila.
The activities were held in line with Bosch’s campaign to promote road and driver safety by raising awareness on various automotive concerns, including the importance of regular preventive maintenance.
"In view of variable petroleum prices, Bosch also endeavors to help Filipino motorists to reduce their fuel expenses through quality car parts and proper maintenance," said Joseph Hong, managing director of Robert Bosch in the Philippines.
Bosch-trained mechanics were in the different locations to perform casa-quality services. Electrical services for parts like battery, starter and alternator were also given.
"Each location was equipped with Bosch Diagnostic Testers that link up to a vehicle’s electronic control unit and test electrinic-driven systems, including engine, transmission, ABS, SRS airbags, traction control and ESP," Bosch said. "These testers are also capable of checking for errors, resettling, idling and running conditions, as well as actuator response."
Aside from the services it provides, Bosch also takes pride in the parts it manufactures, which feature fuel-saving technologies that can reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Bosch said its third-generation Piezo injectors, for example, help diesel engines achieve a 30 percent reduction in consumption (compared with gasoline engines). This results in a 25-percent reduction in carbon dioxide emission and 50 percent additional torque.
