As the country prepares for another long weekend – packing clothes, cooking road trip food, creating playlists – it’s no longer enough to just load up on a full tank of gas and kick your tires and consider your car good to go. Vehicle preparation, usually taken for granted, is the most important step before a long trip.

Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC), the distributor of Kia vehicles in the Philippines, is making sure your travels this upcoming holiday weekend are hassle-free through its annual Motorist Assistance program. As Filipinos across the country prepare to hit the road to return to their families’ provinces or hit the beach with their friends, Kia’s trusted mechanics are preparing their workshop and tools so they can perform at the level for which they have become known for.

Apollo R. Rosal, CAC After-Sales Director, says, “This upcoming holiday long weekend should be a time for reflection and a time for family. We at Kia want to make sure that your car is the last thing you need to worry about as you hit the road with your loved ones.”

“We advise taking your car in for a 28-point check-up at our service centers to prevent any unwanted delays to your travel plans. As suggested, Kia’s 24/7 Care is available all-year round, but for this weekend, we’re preparing even more teams to provide not just manpower for our service bays but also roadside assistance along all the major thoroughfares that lead in and out of the metro.”

Service teams from Kia Pampanga, Kia Marcos Hi-way, Kia Dasmarinas, Kia Batangas, Kia Pasay and Kia Pangasinan will be on standby, prepared to be dispatched to those needing serious technical support, vehicle assistance or towing services on the following days:

  1.  Holy Wednesday (March 28)
  2. Maundy Thursday (March 29)
  3. Black Saturday (March 31)
  4. Easter Sunday (April 1).
