Perodua's Tweckbot safety campaign returns

By CARSIFU | 11 June 2015

RAWANG: Perodua will be providing a free 50-point safety check to all Perodua vehicles at selected locations in conjunction with Ramadan month and Raya celebrations.

Perodua is launching its second Tweckbot programme this year ahead of Ramadan to ensure Perodua vehicles travelling out of town are ready for the long journey.

The Tweckbot programme, introduced in 2011, was a first for Perodua whereby it engages its customers via social media to offer free safety inspections at specified time, date and locations.

The programme was modified during the Chinese New Year celebration this year to reach out to more Perodua owners by using both new and traditional media to announce the time and location of the Tweckbot team.

The Tweckbot team only inspects but do not do on-the-spot servicing. A 50-points safety check includes inspections on the engine, transmission, coolant and tyres. The team advises car owners on whether or not their vehicles need to be serviced or repaired. A 20 % discount for parts and accessories will be given to all those vehicles that return to authorised outlets.

Perodua president & CEO Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh  said the Tweckbot 2015 Chinese New Year programme attracted nearly 500 Perodua owners to check their cars before and after the festivities.

“We hope our customers will participate in this programme and we hope that they will continue to drive safely and responsibly,” Aminar said.

The locations of the Tweckbot teams are:

Central region
June 12 -14 – Giant Shah Alam
July 31, Aug 1-2  --  Giant Shah Alam

East Coast region
June 12-14  – Kuantan Parade, Kuantan
July 30-31, Aug 1  - Giant Kuala Terengganu, Giant Gong Badak , Terengganu
