PROTON COMES TO THE AID OF FLOOD VICTIMS
PROTON has announced a nationwide ‘PROTON I-Care Prihatin Banjir’ flood relief programme to assist flood victims whose Proton cars have been damaged by the flood. The programme kicked off today on the 29th of December 2011 and will run until 29 February 2012. The programme offers affected Proton car owner’s free inspection and assessment of the damages, free towing within a 5km radius of selected PROTON authorised service centres and a 20 percent discount on the purchase of PROTON Genuine Parts. The flood relief programme is part of PROTON’s community outreach programme which also involves a road show by PROTON to several locations in Kelantan, Perlis, Pahang and Johor. The road show had begun earlier on 23 and 24 December 2011 at the Kompleks Perniagaan Saidina Ali in Kok Lanas, Kelantan and at the SCH Service Center in Kangar, Perlis on the 24 and 25 December 2011. The upcoming dates and venues for the road shows are:
30 December 2011
Petronas Petrol Station, Jalan Johor, Pontian, Johor
30 & 31 December 2011
Pekan Kerayong, Bera, Pahang
More venues and dates will be announced by PROTON in due course. During the road shows, PROTON technicians will be on the ground to share valuable tips with owners on how to handle flood-affected vehicles. Proton car owners are also entitled to a free 18-points safety check and free rear seat belt installation – a last chance for Proton car owners to install rear seat belt in their cars before the new regulation is enforced by the government beginning 1 January 2012. Customers who would like to learn how to manage their Proton cars when faced with a flood are also invited to any PROTON authorised service centres to talk to designated PROTON personnel for flood assistance guidance. For towing services and other related enquiries, customers can call the PROTON I-Care Centre at 1300 – 880 – 888 or 1800 – 888 – 398 for 24-hour breakdown assistance.
