Prestone DOT4 High Performance Synthetic Brake Fluid
Formulated to provide outstanding performance in high temperature brake systems in today’s modern cars and trucks, Prestone’s DOT4 High Performance Synthetic Brake Fluid reduces the possibility of fluid vaporization with its high wet and dry boiling points, which helps prevent vapor lock that leads to eventual brake failure. It also provides protection against the corrosion of metals within the brake system.

Prestone claims that the fluid’s high and low temperature friction characteristics provide smooth shifting in extreme conditions and that it can revitalize and condition dry or cracked seals. Prestone’s ATF + Stop Leak can helps improve A/T performance, helps stop A/T leaks in older vehicles delay and helps eliminate the need for costly transmission repairs.

Prestone Disinfecting Car Wipes
Appropriately enough for the post-pandemic reopening of the economy, Prestone, in cooperation with Clorox International Philippines, came out with a great new product – Disinfecting Car Wipes. These wet wipes can be used to wipe down door handles, locks, door pockets, steering wheels, gear levers, push buttons, cup holders, glove compartments, and other contact areas to professionally clean and disinfect in one easy step. Prestone claims that these bleach-free wipes can kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria in one minute. Our sampler package came in three versions: a small pillow pack with 15 wet wipes; a regular-size pillow pack with 30 wet wipes; and a cylindrical plastic container with 30 wet wipes.
Our friends from Prestone Philippines even included a small in-car clip-on trash bin and a trunk organizer in our product sample package.
