Nope, ianne A. is not a person nor does she have a Pre-Menstrual Syndrome.
I don’t think I could write about someone else’s Pre-Menstrual Syndrome…LOL!
OUR two babies: Ykaie and ianne A.
ianne A. is our car which Ykaie named. I took her for a PMS last November 8. Honestly, I don’t know anything about cars and car maintenance. Things like these, I find out through peanutbutter♥ or along the way. We got our car early this year during our 5th Anniversary. It was like God’s Anniversary gift for us because it was a 2010 model and only has 12,000 mileage in it. I believe we got a sweet deal.
Apparently, I had tons of things I had to learn about cars.
PMS stands for Periodic Maintenance Service. It must be performed on a new vehicle at 1,000 km and then every 5,000km after. I took ianne A. on her 15,ooo mileage and found out that it was only her second time. The previous owner didn’t take her for PMS.
All you had to bring for PMS is the Warranty Booklet and a copy of the registration.
Prevention is always better than cure. The main purpose of PMS is to keep the car in perfect working condition for driving comfort, safety, and peace-of-mind. It also ensures that your vehicle will have a longer service life because if ever there’s a problem, it will be detected early and therefore will be repaired at the earliest time possible.
During PMS, vital parts and lubes are inspected and if necessary, replaced, to prevent vehicle breakdown.
It usually take 2-3 hours. I asked my PIls to accompany me for the PMS because my FIL has a Toyota Mastercard. They gave us a 10% discount and we paid around ₱6,200 for the service.
Ykaie and lolo enjoyed the massage chairs while waiting…
Toyota Balintawak took care of both the car and their owners. Aside from the massage chairs, Ykaie had 6 cups of Iced Tea while waiting, I believe…LOL!
Thank you, Toyota Balintawak!
You are so right! Cars need some pampering too. It might be expensive but, it is good for the wallet when the car runs good. Your daughter and the granny looks comfy in there 🙂
Haha! I love the term… yes, our vehicle needs to have that regular pms too. I love your car’s name, by the way!

Sweet deal for a second hand car. May warranty booklet pa talaga, LOL walang ganyan yung samin. We have a Nissan kaya kanya-kanyang pagawa hahaha!
Just like you, our car is like a second child. Parang monthly may bakuna. :p
Rose Cottrill says
Wow, that is nice that they do give discount as well.
Lol on the women-thing-PMS. PMS is one thing that comes with owning a car or even a motorcyle. Btw, that’s a cool name for a car.

it really is a must for car owners to bring their cars for monthly tune-ups and similar check-ups, to lessen car-related problems.
just curious, where does ianne A.’s name came from? ^_^
wow that’s very affordable. How i wish we pay the same amount like you did here in America when we take our car for maintenance service. we recently bought a new tires and the 4 tires cost us $500 🙁 oh boy!

It is quite commendable that companies are now offering conveniences to their clients while waiting.
It was rare for car companies to offer such service. Two thumbs up for Toyota,a good customer service.
That is nice that Toyota also offers some comfort while waiting for the services to be done. And I agree the periodic check up on vehicle is a must. It will maintain it’s good condition and if something is wrong, it can easily be detected.
I’m happy to hear this – made me miss my Toyota years. I’d say you can never go wrong with Toyota cars. 🙂
