There have been rumours circulating that Perodua will be terminating its three-year free service package, and we can now confirm that it is true.

The free service package, introduced in March 2013 alongside the value-for-money S-Series as part of the company’s 20th anniversary celebrations, will end for all Perodua models (Viva, Myvi and Alza) by the end of August. It will cease to exist on September 1.

“Customers who register their Perodua vehicles before the end of August will still be entitled for the three years free service package. We thank our customers for their continued support and we will continue to find new and exciting packages that will give better value to our customers,” said Perodua president and CEO Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh.

He added that Perodua is re-looking at the value proposal it is offering its customers, and will share more details soon. When it was announced, P2 said that the free service package, which includes parts and labour charges, is worth RM1,100 to RM1,200 to the customer. So if you’re looking to buy a Perodua, this is a good time to do so.

Out with the old, in with the new, they say. Could there be a new deal on the cards, to be announced along with the new “Perodua Axia”?
