Make an Apointment with Daihatsu to Enjoy 'Express' Wheel Alignment and Balancing  

To continuously improve customer experience and after-sales service, Daihatsu Malaysia expanded the services of its authorised service centre in Section 15, Shah Alam, Selangor to include express alignment and tyre balancing service.

“We have two dedicated express bays (one for Daihatsu Light Commercial Vehicles and the other for Hino trucks) with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment specifically for wheel alignment and balancing. The express bays are set up for drivers who are in hurry to get their vehicles serviced before Puspakom inspection and get back on the road. This value-added service is performed by Daihatsu’s highly trained and certified technicians at an affordable price with convenience, offering a smooth and hassle-free experience for customers as part of assurance via Daihatsu’s quality service,” said Managing Director Arman Mahadi.

He recommended that commercial vehicle operators get the tyres balanced and aligned every 30,000 kilometres and automatically every time new tyres were fitted. An alignment should be done when the tyres were changed, steering or suspension parts being replaced or following driving incidents when the tyres were subjected to hard blows or an accident. This, he stressed, was important to safeguard vehicle and parts warranty assurance.

“The tyre is the only contact point of a vehicle to the road and it plays a crucial role in vehicle manoeuvrability. Therefore, both tyre balancing and alignment are important as they support not only a smooth ride but safe driving. Misaligned wheels could significantly increase the risk of a vehicle accident as braking distances and handling are compromised, especially for a daily operational goods carrying vehicle.”

It is a mandatory requirement that all commercial vehicles undergo a Puspakom routine inspection/re-inspection. He pointed out that Puspakom followed strict standards in its checking procedure to ensure a vehicle was safe and fit for the road. For commercial vehicles (goods), a routine inspection once a year for the first two years and consecutively, an inspection every six months were required.

Among the various inspection areas, he noted, was the slide-slip test that checked the alignment of tyres and road handling effectiveness. “Our Daihatsu Shah Alam service centre now offers a more comprehensive service as tyre balancing and alignment come inclusive of other periodic service maintenance work. With the dedicated express service bays for tyre alignment and balancing, we show customers that we always strive to accommodate their needs and save them time. Apart from reliability, we believe that vehicle maintenance should be convenient and stress free. Additionally, we value their time.”

Maintaining wheels that were well balanced and aligned was critical, he added, not only for safe driving but also to reduce operation cost and vehicle downtime. He shared that having properly aligned wheels reduced the stress on engine and this improved fuel efficiency.  Therefore, healthy fuel efficiency relied on proper alignment. 

“Misaligned wheels put undue pressure on a vehicle, causing damage to the tyres and suspension components. Spending a small amount of money on wheel alignment could prevent unnecessary damage to your vehicle and fewer repairs. A periodic wheel alignment service would smoothen your drive, help your tyres perform properly, decrease the likelihood of uneven wear and increase your tyre life. Customers could now make an appointment for tyre and alignment with us to save time and enjoy the ‘express’ service via,” he concluded.
