Bosch Car Service (BCS), the world's largest independent network of over 15,000 service outlets, is scheduled to conduct free vehicle diagnostic and safety checks for motorists during this year's maiden leg of the car service clinic this April 16 to 17.

Bosch associates will provide free diagnostic tests and service-related advice at the SM Pampanga open grounds over the course of the weekend. These and other periodic and preventive maintenance services - as well as vehicle safety inspection that cover a car's suspension, steering, brakes, clutch and tires - are geared towards providing Filipino motorists a trouble-free journey during the Holy Week.

Bosch-trained mechanics from San Fernando-based workshop partners Midas (Olongapo-Gapan Road) and Malabon Diesel (Barangay Del Pilar) will also be onboard to perform OE-quality services and a variety of electrical services including battery, starter and alternator testing as well as diagnostic services to check various engine parameters. Finally, every participant will also receive service-related advice from Bosch experts regarding the findings on their vehicles and recommendations on prioritizing necessary repairs.

The Bosch Car Service Clinic endeavors to promote road and driver safety as well as regular preventive maintenance among local motorists. Likewise with rising concerns over fuel prices and carbon emissions, Bosch endeavors to replicate the car clinic program in key cities nationwide.

BCS is a service concept engineered by Bosch, the world's leading provider of automotive technology celebrating its milestone 125th Anniversary in 2011. Locally, the company is the largest supplier of automotive technology parts in the aftermarket.
