Instead of the usual bouquet or dinner (which is not possible now in many areas), Bosch is proposing to give Mum a safe gift for Mother’s Day. Curated by Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Malaysia (Bosch AA), this is a series of practical and thoughtful gifts you can give to mum this year.
If you can’t always be there to drive mum around, why not give her a gift that helps to keep her safe when she is behind the wheel? The gift of car safety this Mother’s Day is done as part of Bosch AA’s ‘Drive for Life’ campaign. The campaign aims to advocate for safer cars and safer roads through raising awareness on the importance of using quality car parts and regular car maintenance.
Clear Visibility On The Road
Upgrade the car wipers to a pair of flat blade wipers for clearer vision and better safety especially during this rainy season. Changing wipers are very simple and can be done in a few simple steps following online wiper installation videos. Bosch AA recommends the Bosch Aerotwin wipers for improved visibility.
Always take note of wear and tear signs include scraping sounds, water stripes and streaks, large unwiped sections, jumping and skipping. The heat from intense sunlight can cause wipers to warp and crack faster. As a rule of thumb, Bosch recommends to replace them once a year.
Clean And Fresh Aair In The Car
Having good air quality has gain prominence in the last couple of years. For cars, cabin filters serve as a first line of defense to reduce the risk of exposure to airborne pollutants, bacteria and viruses. Bosch AA recommends replacing the cabin filter in your mum’s car with the Bosch Aeristo Premium cabin filter, which has anti-virus, anti-bacterial, anti-allergen and anti-fungal properties.
It is advisable to replace cabin filters every year or every 15,000 km, whichever comes first. Common signs of a clogged cabin filter include unpleasant smells or exhaust fumes, increasing dust settling on car surfaces, frequent runny nose, sneezing and coughing. Reduced coldness of the AC and frequent foggy windows also warrant a cabin filter replacement.
Using a quality engine oil will ensure the engine runs smoothly. Bosch AA recommends the Bosch Premium X7 5W40 Fully Synthetic Engine Oil. Since we are also driving less during this period, you can consider getting a Bosch C7 car battery charger to ensure her car battery is kept at optimum charge thus reducing the risk of a non-start.
To care for the battery, keep the keep the car battery clean with an occasional wipe using a damp clean cloth. This can help prolong battery life, prevent battery terminal corrosion and keep the battery in optimal condition. You can also help check for signs of a swollen battery case once in a while to avoid bigger car problems, like an exploding battery.
