Selamat berpuasa to my Muslim friends!

In a short few weeks it will be Hari Raya, and many of us, Muslim or otherwise, will be taking the opportunity of the holidays to travel back home to visit our love ones. To ensure a good and safe journey home, it is imperative that we get our vehicles be in a fit condition.

safe balik kampung promotion

For that, Carama by Castrol has something on offer for everyone with their Safe Balik Kampung Promotion – for only RM 128.00, you get an oil change, filter, safety check, and brake inspection worth RM 200.00.

Carama by Castrol is the first online service for trusted car care in Malaysia. With a huge network of certified and listed car workshops (200+) in Klang Valley. This help removes the doubt of choosing the right workshop as the certified shops had to undergo a rigorous accreditation process that assure customers of quality of workmanship, skills, and equipment.

Carama workshop reviews

The Carama site also provides one of the most invaluable features we’ve been waiting for – workshop reviews from customers. In addition to the certification process, this really helps us to choose the workshop we can trust without having to resort to just asking around for recommendations.

Since my car is currently at the paint shop, a friend of mine gave Carama a try and reported very positive experience (not unlike the old Castrol Auto Serivce I tried in 2011).

The workshop has a air conditioned waiting room with free drinking water and a TV for you to chill while the car is being serviced. The mechanic was very professional and took good care of the car while servicing it. It was overall a very fast and simple process that took less than an hour to complete.

So for this Balik Kampung season, head to Carama by Castrol and get your vehicle ready for the long ride home! Remember to use the RAYA128 code.

    Yes, always have a thorough check before driving long distances. I do that all the time. Pays to be just a little bit more careful.

    KY, I am not good with car problems and would rather have an electric car since I drive more in the city. I drove some time ago on freeway and car stall on me. I got car service lucky but it is a pain to have it happen since it an not new car anyway.

      Vickie: electric car is the way of the future! Too bad the infrastructure isn’t ready in many countries yet.
