How to prepare customers for seasonal travel

July 16, 2012

If you elect to drive to your vacation or holiday destination, it’s crucial that you take the time to check your car before you put it to the test.

“While you should certainly check tires, battery, wipers and fluids, one of the most important items that keeps a car’s engine going strong is a regular oil and filter change,” says Chuck Kerrigan, director and regional business unit leader, North America, for Bosch Filtration Americas.

"Clean, filtered oil lubricating the engine and its components will ensure smooth and efficient operation for thousands of miles. And, if you are also looking for driving performance, go a step further and choose a high performance oil filter so your car will perform at its best on the long journey.”

According to Kerrigan, a "high performance" oil filter such as the Bosch DistancePlus is specially engineered to keep the engine performing efficiently over a long period of time. The Bosch DistancePlus high performance oil filter is designed to keep oil extraordinarily clean, protect the engine against harmful contaminants and prevent engine wear. In addition, it works with any brand of synthetic and conventional motor oil.

The Bosch DistancePlus offers 99.9% efficiency in removing dirt from the oil, says the company. It is available in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
