3 Tips on how to maintain your car during rainy season

Whether we like it or not, we just entered a season of rain in Metropolis. In this season, its so important that motorists are physically and mentally prepared for what our nature will bring. The floods are quite unpredictable, with just few rainfall you end up stranded—or worse—get flooded in the middle of the street.

In this situation, you don’t want to trust your instinct or take the risk of making a decision.  So before you hit the road, you want to make sure that your car is in good condition. Here are the Top Three (3) Tips shared by Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc (HARI) in order for us to keep our car in tip top shape during rainy season:

1.) You need to trust the experts. There’s an old saying that “Health is Wealth.” Honestly, it should not be limited to humans. It can also be an important philosophy on how your car should be treated. Bringing your car to a service center dealership or if you own a Hyundai vehicle (an authorized Hyundai Service Centers) is like getting a regular checkup from a licensed doctor. It is akin to putting your life in the hands of trained experts with the right equipment. Relying on unqualified mechanics and run-of-the-mill car shops will not justify the hard-earned money you saved to purchase your car.


2.) Keep it real. Fake alternatives are cheaper. Why? No warranty, no quality check, low quality components, and poor workmanship. Masked as savings, these can be more costly in the long run, as they do not last and may cause further damage to the vehicle. Word from the wise: Always go for genuine parts for optimum performance. They are guaranteed to work best with your car.

3.) Be consistent. This old adage might be a stone age for some but the phrase “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” is still evident for most Filipino motorists. Try to be consistent with your car’s check-up. Preventive maintenance service (PMS) is designed to keep your car in perfect shape. Regular checkups aid early detection of problems and can spare you expensive repairs.

Applying all these tips might be hard for some, but taking at least small baby steps will get you out of trouble on the road. If you’re a Hyundai car owner, HARI is offering its Hyundai’s RAINDROPS (Discounts & Rewards on Parts and Service) to give your car a special treatment it deserves minus the high cost!
