Prior to the madrush weekend, Honda Malaysia has placed personnel at Sg. Besi and Duta Toll Plazas to hand out safety tips with emergency numbers leaflets and refreshments to motorists.
As a responsible Corporate citizen, Honda Malaysia is doing its bid to ensure their customers’ utmost safety during the peak travel period. Additionally, the company wants to instill a reminder to all motorists during the rush-back-to-hometown or Balik Kampung weekend to drive safe, be cautious on the road and arrive safe to celebrate the special occasion with their families.
The Honda 22-point check will be conducted at these rest areas: Gurun and Tapah on the North-bound and Dengkil and Ayer Keroh, both South-bound. Honda owners are welcomed to have their cars inspected on 4 main inspection sections of fluid, basic function, system and exterior of vehicle. This free inspection will take about 10-15 minutes per car and is not meant to replace the maintenance or service required. It will however, act as a stop-gap measure for motorists who have forgotten to check their cars prior to the ‘mad rush back to hometown’ weekend.
More specifically, the 22-point check entails inspections on the engine oil, brake fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, auto transmission fluid, radiator & washer tank water levels, rearlights, brake lights, fog lights, hazard/3rd brake light, power window functions, wiper, the car’s battery, alarm system, meter system, drive belt, safety belts, and even brakes functionality and tyre pressure and tread depth.
Yoichiro Ueno, Honda Malaysia’s Managing Director and CEO, commented, “Safety is always our priority. There are three key aspects that help ensure safer roads – the car, road conditions and human factor i.e. drivers. This Road Safety activity during festive season is part of our efforts to educate on easy safety steps and address the human factor aspect.”
“Besides our efforts in ensuring high level of safety in all Honda vehicles, we are also committed towards promoting safer roads as we dream of a day where there will be zero road accidents,” he added.
