Malaysian Automotive Companies Offer Discounts For Flood-Affected Vehicles

Member companies of the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) will offer discounts of at least 25% on the total cost of repair work as well as free towing services for flood-affected vehicles.

Under this initiative, discount vouchers of up to RM1,000 for repair or replacement of private passenger vehicles will be accorded by the government to victims affected by the massive floods.

As announced by the Minister of Finance recently, affected vehicle owners do not need to make any application to benefit from the discount voucher. 

MAA had been assured by its participating member companies that their authorised service centres would expedite the repair process of the affected vehicles wherever possible and within the mean of each service centre.

MAA President Datuk Aishah Ahmad said the association had urged the members to lighten the burden of affected vehicle owners in the aftermath of the natural disaster.

“The victims are already suffering heavy losses and will need whatever assistance in order to alleviate their suffering,” she said in a statement.

Some of the participating MAA member companies like Perodua and Proton have confirmed that they are willing to extend up to a 50% discount on the cost of spare parts.

“MAA is pleased that many of our members have voluntarily stepped forward to do their part, not only as a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity but also for humanitarian reasons,” she added.
