In the words of Vin Diesel himself in Fast 7, “I don’t have friends. I got family,” and apparently so does Perodua as it welcomes the government’s Keluarga Malaysia initiative that sees automotive discount vouchers extended to victims of the recent flooding.
Perodua now accepts the vouchers as a form of payment at its service and sales centres. On 7-January 2022, the Ministry of Finance announced a RM 1,000 voucher initiative to assist Malaysians whose vehicles were damaged by the flood. The vouchers can be used in lieu of payment for repairs of a water-damaged private vehicle or towards the replacement of a vehicle deemed to be a total loss.

Owners may apply for the vouchers from the service or sales centres of participating carmakers and have until 31-March 2022 to use said vouchers. A direct deduction will be made from the total cost of repairs or from the cost of replacing new vehicles.
“We thank the government for their swift and generous act in helping flood victims in their time of need and Perodua welcome this new initiative as it further strengthen our efforts to help fellow Malaysians,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
The vouchers will go hand-in-hand with the Perodua Flood Assist Programme that has helped owners whose vehicles were damaged by the recent flood. Perodua’s Flood Assist Programme consist of a 50 percent discount for standard parts, free labour for all parts replacement and repairs as well as free 24-hour towing service via Perodua’s 1800-88-5555 hotline number.
“As of 10 January 2022, a total of 1,987 Perodua vehicles have been towed to 200 Perodua service centres located across Malaysia for evaluation and so far 323 units have been repaired. In fact, we have dedicated a flood repair hub in Shah Alam just to repair and restore Perodua vehicles that were damaged due to the recent flood,” added Zainal.
Customers can call the Perodua Customer Care Line at 1800-88-6600 for general enquiries or regarding the Flood Assist Programme.
