Prestone, a leading innovator of cutting-edge coolants, brake fluid, and motor oils, partnered anew with Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC) for its annual “Safe Trip Mo, Sagot Ko” project during the Holy Week.
The project provided overall check-up, change oil, troubleshooting and free top-up services to a total of 150 vehicles driving through the Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) and the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) from April 17 to 21.
Aside from roadside assistance, Prestone mechanics offered brake fluid efficiency testing with B.L.O.C.B.A.G.E.T.S, a twist on the mnemonic coined by the Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) B.L.O.W.B.A.G.E.T.S, that helps drivers assess the status of their vehicles.
B.L.O.W.B.A.G.E.T.S. means Battery, Lights, Oil, Water, Brake, Air, Gas, Engine, Tire and Self. Prestone aimed to improve the preventive procedure by shifting the focus from “water” to “coolant.” Mechanics inspected the level of coolants in engines and checked the system for leaks or other issues.
The new method emphasized the value of anti-freeze properties in coolants to prevent overheating, ensuring the safety of drivers by preventing vehicular breakdown, especially with the current effects of the El Niño phenomenon.
“Most of the motorists often neglect preventive measures that could lessen road safety challenges while traveling to provinces,” said Monique Gonzales, brand manager of Prestone. “This project is our way of continuing our commitment to motorists by providing not only our excellent services and products but also, ensuring road safety through our road assistance.”
