Should Castrol Reduce Their Lubricant Prices?
We are sure Malaysian car owners, like us would like to see Castrol making the move to reduce their lubricant pricing in line with what Shell did this week. If Castrol maintains their lubricant pricing, then we will see Shell taking a ‘lions’ share of the car servicing market and Castrol moving their game even lower down the sales ladder.
Castrol EDGE sells on the high street shops for RM229.00 and now you can go online to Lazada and get Castrol EDGE for just RM126.00 for a 4-liter pack which is a whopping 45% savings. We even found Castrol EDGE on iprice shopping network at a huge 50% discount for RM120.00.
Now the question comes to mind. Is this ‘fake’ products on sale online or not as this kind of pricing margin suddenly opens up a huge can of worms for the car servicing industry where car manufacturers who offer servicing packages could be using these online lubricants with up to 50% discount and charging car owners full price with their labour and cost added on top.
