Many Filipinos like to think that they treat their vehicles well– weekly carwashes, premium gasoline and regular oil changes. However, it’s a common misconception for Filipino car owners that those oil changes are enough to keep your car running like new.

Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC), the distributor of Kia vehicles in the Philippines, is here to educate the driving public that total maintenance is more than just an oil change. A change oil is just one of the many steps in the Preventive Maintenance Service (PMS) process that will keep your Kia performing at a top level. If you want your car to be in the best shape that it could possibly be, take your vehicle to the nearest Kia Service site for a PMS appointment based on the recommended schedule.

Taking your vehicle in for a PMS is a key part of responsible vehicle ownership, especially for the first few thousand kilometers of new automobiles. By taking your car in for maintenance by Kia technicians, you are pre-emptively addressing any potential problems.

As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure. The same goes for your car. By following your car’s recommended PMS schedule, you save yourself from potentially higher replacement and maintenance costs and prolong the life of your vehicle.

During Preventive Maintenance Service, the entire process involves using state-of-the-art equipment combined with technical know-how to thoroughly check, diagnose and adjust the various components of your car.

The technician will make the necessary adjustments and identify the items that will require replacement. For example, the engine oil or various filters which include the Oil Filter, Fuel Filter, Air Filter and Aircon Filter. Depending on the level of wear, the technician may also recommend replacing the various engine belts and brake pads.

Kia technicians will always recommend replacing these items only with Kia Genuine Parts to ensure the best fit and performance. Kia Genuine Parts are engineered to precise and exact standards by Kia to the original specification of each vehicle and uses the best materials available so you can be sure of their reliability.
