Why has the proportion of imported cars and domestic cars in Taiwan showing a golden crossover trend in recent years? The key factor is of course the higher and higher CP performance of imported cars! Although the specifications and the high-value entry threshold of Daman have become important factors for imported cars to conquer the city, but to complete the last mile of the golden cross, logistics and maintenance are still the threshold that many consumers can’t pass, but Taiwan The long-range flexible maintenance program launched by Flowserve Motors this time is to break your myth that European cars are difficult and expensive to maintain!

With the improvement of car-building technology, many car-using habits need to keep pace with the times and change. In recent years, the small-displacement turbo engine that has prevailed in recent years has clearly outperformed the large-cc car in terms of power and fuel consumption. A classic case, and the advancement of technology now makes the matter of regular maintenance another “outdated” concept that may be challenged or even overturned.

In fact, try to think about it, when everyone is different from driving habits to using the car, why do they have to follow the maintenance schedule recommended by the same owner’s manual? To take an extreme example, would the engine operation and oil condition of commuting on a highway every day be the same as a taxi that stops and stops in the city? However, most of the current car manufacturers do not pay attention to the difference between the two, they will only tell you that you should go to the factory for maintenance when the time or mileage is up. Even if you have doubts in your mind, you still have to do it for the warranty of your car. The protection fee is paid regularly.

Taiwan’s Volkswagen Auto’s long-range flexible maintenance program is an innovation in response to the old concept of “all-in-one” regular maintenance; as mentioned in the previous paragraph, each person’s different use of the car will lead to different engines. /Oil working status, Taiwan Flowserve has installed an oil quality/oil level sensor in the engine from the 2020 model of the new car to directly monitor the engine load, oil quality and mileage to tell you when to change the oil. Directly extend the maintenance cycle to twice the original, that is, two years or 30,000 kilometers before changing the oil!

To put it plainly, if you have been using the car for a long time in a situation where the burden on the engine is relatively low, such as highway cruising, since the oil quality can last longer, the long-range flexible maintenance program can allow you to return to the factory longer intervals , The best situation is that the maintenance period is extended to two years or 30,000 kilometers; but if it is usually in a traffic jam in the urban area, the oil will naturally be better than the former if the working temperature is not reached for a long time. It is prone to deterioration, so it is just returning to the one-year/15,000-kilometer maintenance period originally recommended by Taiwan Foss.

To put it simply, this new maintenance concept will not affect the owners’ rights and interests, but can also create additional added value. Even maintenance can save money. This should be something that many car owners could not imagine? Then another question arises at this time. Will the maintenance mileage be affected if the maintenance mileage is so long?

Since the long-range flexible maintenance is the original factory-launched plan, of course, there will be no problems affecting the warranty. As long as the instrument panel lights up to remind the factory, return to the factory and use the original long-term engine oil. The car models starting in 2020 are all applicable to the conditions of the long-range maintenance program, which means that all new cars you can buy currently have the intimate advantages of saving money for car owners!

The maintenance cycle has been lengthened, and it is undoubtedly that Taiwanese Volkswagen is more accessible to the people in logistics than other European brands. Therefore, we will actually take T-Cross and do it with the current popular domestically made cross-border SUVs on the market. By comparison, let’s explore whether imported European cars are more difficult to maintain than domestically-produced cars.

In terms of the cost of owning a car in a ten-year cycle, T-Cross benefits from the long-range flexible plan. Routine maintenance costs only $45,867, which is even higher than NISSAN Kicks’s $57,740, TOYOTA Corolla Cross’s $61,051, and HONDA The $71,527 of HR-V is even lower! Moreover, the 1.0 TSI turbocharged engine not only has an advantage in taxation, it is second only to Hybrid’s 17.6km/L average fuel consumption, and only about $4,000 more than Corolla Cross in 10 years of fuel consumption. Overall, T- The cost of owning a Cross car is really no higher than that of a domestic car.

The launch of the long-range flexible maintenance program not only poses a major challenge to the current mainstream “all-in-one” regular maintenance, but also further eliminates the myth that imported cars must be more difficult to maintain than domestic ones! The new plan does not affect the vehicle warranty, nor will you worry about saving money but spending more money. Logistics maintenance no longer constitutes a reason for you to stay away from Flowserve.
