Perodua owners affected by the recent floods in Penang will be able to seek assistance from the national carmaker itself – the company is following in the footsteps of Honda, offering free inspections to determine the amount of damage inflicted on the vehicle, as well as discounts on selected parts.

“Our customers matter most to us and these value added services are provided to help relieve some of the burden our customers have to deal with during this disaster,” said Perodua Sales managing director Datuk Dr Zahari Husin. “While a few of our service centres in Penang are affected by the flood, our customers are welcomed to refer to our service outlets in Juru, Prai and Kulim for assistance.”

The company is giving customers 20% off components including all electronic items, carpets, seats, door trims and engine gaskets. “We assure the public that our genuine parts come with a manufacturer’s guarantee and ask our customers to not use any imitation parts as this may impact the vehicle’s performance,” said Zahari.

Customers affected by the floods, or those wishing to check on the status of their car’s delivery, can contact Perodua’s toll-free customer care line at 1-800-88-5555.
