Easter is celebrated with fervour in the Philippines. Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Black Saturday are national holidays to create a 4-day long weekend. In 2018, the long weekend begins on Thursday 29 March.

HOW EASTER IS SPENT IN THE PHILIPPINES

Whatever it is that you have planned to do during the long weekend, most of you are spending it with your families or loved ones. Easter is a family event. Many spend it in devotion to their Christian faith, while some have a more unconventional outlook towards Easter celebrations. In most cases, the provincial beach and mountain resorts will be filled with them. In whatever manner you spend it, you need to get in your vehicle and drive somewhere. Having a smooth and safe driving experience to the province is what you need for a stress-free Easter weekend.

PREPARATION IS KEY

'Is your Ford tuned for the task?'

ENGINE TUNE-UP

Have you checked if the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs need replacing Have you also checked if the radiator water-level is within its optimum level? We do not want you stalling in the middle of the highway, because you have an over-heating problem with your car.

TYRE CONDITION

Have you checked if the tyres are deflated, or need to be replaced? Tyre pressure differs based on the make and model of your vehicle as well as the load in the car. What about the treads on your car tyres? Are they within their legal depth limit?

ELECTRICALS

Are the healdlights, tail lights and brake lights in working condition?

AIRCON

The Philippine Archipelago is eternally a hot country. Every vehicle should have a working airconditioner that works. Make sure that the airconditioner is working, especially its aircon gas levels. You will thank me for telling you this

WATER

Water. This is what we all need. Especiallly in hot weather. Make sure that the water level in the radiator is full. Overheating problems will surely cause you so much hassle, discomfort and delay your trips. Furthermore,the windshield wiper's water tank must be replenished at all times.
