The National Day celebrations are coming up, and this year, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is offering a RM1,000 “Merdeka Voucher” on all its models, for bookings made from now until August 31. Essentially a rebate on any vehicle, it goes on top of the other promotions being offered by the company.

These include discounts of up to RM4,000 for the Polo, RM10,000 for the Vento Comfortline, RM6,000 for the Vento Highline, RM2,000 for the Golf R-Line, RM5,000 for the Beetle Sport, RM2,000 for the Tiguan Highline, RM15,000 for the Passat Comfortline and RM4,000 for the Passat Highline.

From now until December 31, Tiguan and Passat buyers also benefit from an extended free maintenance package – from the usual three years to five – plus a reduced interest rate of 1.88% per annum. Together with the voucher, VPCM claims total savings of up to RM14,800 for the Tiguan and RM16,100 for the Passat.

As for aftersales, VPCM is offering a complimentary vehicle check, with those due for a shock absorber change receiving a 20% discount on new dampers. There’s also a promotion on tyres from as low as RM184 per piece (along with other offers such as free installation, alignment and balancing, depending the package selected) and a 20% discount on batteries (starting from RM365), both extended to the end of the year.
