Proton Holding Bhd, in collaboration with Petronas has launched the exclusive range of Petronas Syntium SE engine oils, formulated specially for Proton cars.
The new range of engine oils can be purchased at all Proton authorized service centres, which is aimed to provide better value for customers and better engine protection. In terms of value, the new engine oil is said to save Proton owners up to 20% on their next service at any authorized Proton service centres.
Three oils are available for Proton owners: the fully synthetic Petronas Syntium 3000 SE (5W-30), semi synthetic Petronas Syntium 800 SE (10W-30) and the mineral oil-based Petronas Syntium 500 SE (15W40). Currently, all Proton models feature a service interval of 10,000 km and this is applicable for all engine oils including the earlier mentioned Petronas Syntium SE range.
Petronas says that the new engine oils are specially formulated with CoolTech technology to prevent heat built-up when the cars are moving, driving up steep slopes and continuous acceleration on highways.
Apart from the new engine oil announcement, Proton has also mentioned that they have increased the number of their 7-days a week service centres from 23 outlets to 27 outlets to cope with the growing number of service demands by the end of the year.
