Call center service can be used to get help when the car is breaking down because of the battery problems, the mechanic will come to your house or where ever you are to help you directly.

There are three types of GS Astra car battery offered:

  • GS MF (Maintenance Free) battery is a special design that clearly fits with our tropical climate, no maintenance, no need to check or add water, type of MF is clearly saving time and care. If you have a car that is rarely used is preferably disposable GS MF because it has a high start and can store electrical energy for longer, perfect for a cold engine.
  • GS Astra Hybrid; Minimal treatment, using hybrid technology, the battery water evaporation is lower and also the addition of the battery water 4-5 times longer than a conventional battery. In addition it is definitely the battery charged accu zuur and stun factory standard with the electrolyte indicator to determine the condition of the surface, the water content of the battery, and the battery power stun. 
  • GS Premium is arguably conventional battery, has a strong resistance and durability also with optimal power and quick special activation, has been charged accu zuur, premium battery normally this is the default battery of motor vehicle manufacturers in Indonesia. 
Here, the things we should consider about car battery:
  1. Don't wait until your car won’t start. It isn't the best time to shop for a new car battery. But it's such a common habit that’s exactly what most people do, ain't it?
  2. You need to replace the car battery of your vehicle, either because it gets worn out or old. 
  3. A dead battery can be a hassle when you can’t find your jumper cables, here you need a help from roadside assistance.
  4. When you need assistance to change or charge your car battery, call 1500015 (Shop & Drive), it provides roadside assistance day or night right across Indonesia.
