Gargash recently launched a new initiative which aims to ‘educate and empower’ vehicle owners by offering free consultations on everyday car upkeep.
Having hands-on information about automotive care is an initiative that Gargash Auto says it has “on its agenda in 2021, leading into 2022.”
The initiative started offering free consultations to all walk-in customers on December 1st at its Al Quoz facility. Any customer that walks into the Gargash Auto facility up until the end of February will receive a complimentary consultation from one of their qualified service advisors, ranging from basic vehicle care to advanced situations that arise during a breakdown. The initiative that runs over a 3-month period will cover a range of topics focusing on both genders, promoting values of inclusion and education.
“Driving a car is a huge responsibility, and as with any machine, a car too can run into trouble if not looked after, through ‘Gear in with Gargash Auto’ we want to equip drivers with all the basic knowledge of vehicle function as well prepare them for unforeseen circumstances,” said Amir Pervaiz, general manager, Gargash Auto.
The brand wants to encourage road safety by adopting safe practices, implementing preventative measures, and destigmatising the notion of automotive care only being associated with one gender.
Gargash Auto is determined to do its part to make the UAE roads a safer space, thereby contributing towards a healthy eco-system and society. The topics Gargash Auto will cover include, but are not limited to: Battery jump-start; basic engine Knowledge; knowing all the common warning lights on the dashboard and their respective meaning; oil leak checks; what to do in case of a random breakdown; refilling the wiper water tank; engine oil level check; tyre pressure check; and how to locate the fuel tank.
Pervaiz added: “Often drivers get into situations as they tend to ignore warning signs that the vehicle might be giving such as tyre pressure being low, the engine being overheated, and many more. We strongly feel if they were aware of this, they would be able to pick on the warning signs early on and avoid getting into difficult situations.”
