Perodua is re-introducing the Tweckbot, the first-of-its-kind Twitter-based free safety check in Malaysia, in the upcoming year-end and Chinese New Year festive period.

“Due to popular demand, we are again offering this service to our valued customers. This time around we are extending the services to 3 cities,” Perodua Managing Director Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said.

Apart from the Klang Valley, Perodua will extend the service to Penang, Ipoh and Johor Bahru for the 4-weekend campaign which kicks off on 25 November, 2011.

The Tweckbot teams will be in Penang from 25-27 November, Ipoh from 2-4 December, Johor Bahru from 9-11 December and the Klang Valley from 16-18 December, 2011. Perodua will allocate between 3 to 5 mobile teams to cover these areas.

The teams will carry out a 20-point check that include an engine check, transmission check, coolant system (include coolant level as well as fan and temperature), brake system check (include brake fluid and brake pad wear), power steering system check, clutch system check, tyre check, suspension system check, electrical system check (include battery, lights and wiper checks) and engine diagnosis.
