Is the cooler weather challenging your battery? Did you know that batteries run a maximum of 3 to 5 years, even with proper care.
One simple way to test if your car battery needs replacing is to start the car at night and switch on the headlights. With the vehicle out of gear, press the accelerator. If the headlights get brighter as you do so, then that's a sure sign your battery is on its way out.
Now’s a perfect time to get a new battery, with this generous offer from Autoworld. Available at all participating branches and Impala Service Station while stocks last.
With the motto “Keeping Zambia moving”, Autoworld puts a lot of effort into stocking up-to-date spares and accessories for all its customer vehicle needs. Coupled with that, the company gives high priority to training its employees, ensuring they are fully equipped to help customers.
In early May 2019, representatives from Wynn Products in South Africa held two day-long training sessions for salesmen and warehouse staff. Altogether 24 staff members attended. Material covered included the different Wynn products, the different characteristics of each product and which one is suitable for different needs.
As well as Wynn's automotive interior sprays, Autoworld stocks a range of oil treatment products such as Engine Additive, Power Steering & ATF Conditioner, and Diff & Gearbox 'Stop Leak'.
As you will see from the smiling faces, the training was a huge success, with the team eager to put into practice what they’ve learned.
The Super Heroes Colour Run for Cancer event, in support of the Sam Damalis Foundation for cancer patients, took place on May 1st 2019. The whole program was well attended, with a range of age groups from children to the elderly. Not only was Autoworld one of the sponsors, we also participated!
There were three categories: the 2.5km run, the 5km run and the 10km run. Two of our staff participated in the 5km run - Andrew Malembeka, our Finance and Administration Manager, and Abuild Zulu, one of our Salesmen.
One feature of this race is ‘colour splashing’ - marshals are places at different stages of the race and as runners passed by, they are splashed with colours.
This was a fun race and everyone was a winner. In fact a ‘Super Hero’s medal’ was given to everyone who finished the race.
There’s nothing more frustrating than spending time and money getting your car serviced, only to be let down by the quality of the parts you’ve put in. It often comes down to the brand. A good brand can make all the difference between a well-functioning enduring part and a poor performing component that quickly packs up altogether. And this principle also applies to treatment products such as fuel additives and leak sealants.
Why not spend your precious time and money efficiently and effectively with high performing inputs? Autoworld is constantly searching out quality brands. And the goal is to help your vehicle perform at its very best.
Brands we're proud to have recently promoted include Hella lighting products, NF fuel additives, Turtlewax interior polishes and the Shield range of car care and maintenance products.
We also recommend and stock Wynn's oil treatment products and Redman solid brass battery terminals.
Potholes and gravel roads significantly reduce the life of vehicle suspension components, especially shocks, though driving cautiously over bad roads will help. See our previous article on shocks.
Worn out shocks not only adversely effect passenger comfort but also driver control and wear and tear on other components.
Now is definitely the time to sort out your shocks, because this month we have a package of offers on shock absorbers!
1) A big 20% discount off all KYB and Monroe shock absorbers.
2) If you buy a set of 4 shocks, a further 20% discount applies to the fitting charge.
The only catch is that this offer expires 8th May! Make sure you don’t miss out :)
Are your tyres loosing their tread? This month we have tyres on offer by quality brands Goodyear, Continental, Bridgestone, Pirelli and BFGoodrich! Get your 15% discount for these tyres at any participating Autoworld branch or Impala Filling Station. Discount available for one week only.
8th March 2019 was International Women’s Day, and Autoworld participated in the March Past. Team Autoworld were looking sharp in smart co-ordinated chitenge outfits.
Vice President Inonge Wina, Zambia’s first woman Vice President, was the honoured guest. She encouraged the women of Zambia to be vibrant and innovative as the country is now being moved by women in many leadership roles and other walks of life.
The theme for International Women’s Day in Zambia was “Think equal. Build smart. Innovate for change”.
The 2019 ISL ‘Super Heroes’ Colour Race for Cancer will take place on May 1st 2019. This 5km fun run / walk starts and finishes at the sports field at ISL (International School of Lusaka). More avid runners can do the loop twice; and there is a shorter 2.5 km loop for younger children. Come and run or walk, bring the children and make it a family day! There will be live entertainment, food and drinks and activities for the children. This race is organised by ISL in conjunction with the Sam Damalis Trust Fund.
How do we register?
To register, click here and complete the details. It costs just ZMW150 per person.
Tell me about the ‘Colour’ theme? And the ‘Super Heroes’ theme?
Everyone is free to interpret these themes in their own way - whatever they’re comfortable with, however they want to express themselves - through costume, wig, face paint, body paint … the choice is yours.
What is Autoworld’s role?
This year (2019) Autoworld is partnering with the organisers of the race through sponsorship.
What happens to the funds raised?
All funds raised are dedicated to helping children battling cancer in Zambia. The organisers work closely with the Paediatric Cancer Ward at UTH.
Over the last 8 years, this initiative has raised funds towards medication, specialised diagnostic tests, supplemented nursing staff salaries, equipment for kitchen for carers to use, monthly supply of chlorine, creating a play area for the children, given additional assistance to Kayula Home, assistance to Twende Learning Centre and, from the beginning of 2018, a weekly supply of clean drinking water to the ward. Find more details here.
What happened last year?
International School of Lusaka has been running the Colour Run for the last 5 years. Last year the Sam Damalis Trust Fund joined forces and together they hosted the very first Colour Run for Cancer in June 2018.
Attended by 650 runners, including many children, the 2018 event raised ZMW 85 000. After consultation with the doctors from the UTH paediatric cancer ward, the money was spent on some refurbishments to ensure privacy for the patients in the high care ward, an industrial floor cleaner, air conditioning for the classroom in the ward and a contribution towards the teacher’s salary. Each week they provide 16 x 20 litre bottles of water to the ward and each month a 50kg drum of chlorine.

Joseph Mulenga has been a security guard at Autoworld for the last 10 years. He retired last month and was presented with parting gifts from Autoworld staff members. Everyone knows him as “Zemule”.
For many years Mr Mulenga has been part of Autoworld life, watching over the vehicles and outside premises, and helping around the fitment center with various jobs. He has always been helpful to members of staff; and on his retirement, some of the Autoworld team had the idea of buying him a Christmas present to say thank you. This was all in the spirit of giving around this festive season. The gifts were presented on Dec 24 2018, Christmas Eve. Joseph is a man of few words but we were happy to put a smile on his face. He did not expect this and it was a wonderful surprise for him. His present included a monetary gift and a Christmas hamper of assorted items.
Joseph Mulenga is a family man with five children and four grandchildren. He managed to build a house before he retired. We all wished him well at the presentation and urged him to continue to support his family.
For the administration team at Autoworld’s head office in Lusaka, 2018 has been a very busy year of serious hard work. But all that was forgotten on 15th December as the team set off from Kafue River Cliff on a two-hour ‘Lady Betty’ cruise. Christmas had begun!
While the ‘Lady Betty’ glided along the beautiful Kafue River, everyone joined in the fun ...
Andrew Malembeka could not meet the Director’s moves as you can see. Go Andrew go! Everyone cheered them on … Sepiso wanted to overdo Freddy, with ‘Dombolo style by Sepiso’. It was a great time of dancing and laughter.
Later we all sat down together, had a sumptuous meal, and played ‘the alphabet game’. You think people know their ABC?? Did you know that “B” is for jowboints (meaning ball joints) “Z” is for zebruary and “U” is for Europe”? Oh la la! But finally, we had a winner - Gopal - and he deserves a trophy because it was not easy.
At the end of the day, we had a very Merry Autoworld Christmas.
Wishing you all a very happy new year, full of laughter.
This Christmas time we’re giving a 15% discount off our complete range of tyres AND a crazy 25% discount off our complete range of wipers!! And it’s running for two whole weeks!!
We’ll also be giving free tyre fitting and balancing for each tyre purchased, as well as free wheel alignment for every set of 4 tyres and 4 rims.
We hope these great deals get you in the mood for the festive season. Remember to drive safely - don’t drink and drive.
Wishing you a fantastic time with family and friends.
From all of us at Autoworld
