Petronas LubeCare launch

Petronas has introduced a new loyalty programme for its Syntium range of engine oils, catered both to workshops and to regular consumers servicing their cars at those workshops. Dubbed LubeCare, it offers personal accident insurance and car breakdown/emergency services to those who buy the lubricants at participating outlets.

How does this work? Simply purchase a four-litre bottle of Petronas Syntium 800, 3000 and 7000, register via SMS and you’ll be entitled to six month’s PA coverage worth RM22,500 (including RM10,000 for accidental death and another RM10,000 for permanent disablement).

The package also includes six months’ LubeCare Auto Assistant (LCAA) – the latter includes 24-hour roadside repair, 24-hour towing, free battery delivery, emergency medical assistance and information transmission to the nearest family member, car rental assistance and legal advisory services.

Customers are then covered for another six months when they purchase another bottle, which essentially means that the maximum period of coverage is one year. It’s not as simple as that, however; there are only 8,000 policies available to all Petronas LubeXpert and contract workshops – the number of packages offered to each workshop varies depending on the quantity of purchase – and it’s all on a first-come, first-serve basis.
