Ford Focus Challenge Offers Chance to Win the Segment Leading Next Generation Focus
Ford in Malaysia has announced details for its All-New Ford Focus Challenge, with all customers taking delivery of their all-new Focus by 31 December being eligible to participate.The All-New Ford Focus Challenge consists of three competition stages that will take place early next year, with the winner driving away with the grand prize, an all-new Ford Focus (the 4-door Titanium sedan).
All customers who have placed an order and taken delivery of an all-new Ford Focus will be notified via SMS and email after the contest closing date on 31 December, alerting them about the first stage of the challenge.
In the first leg of the challenge, which will take place end January next year, 20 questions will be sent to each contestant via email and SMS, who will be given a specific timeframe to submit answers. Contestants who send the correct answers before the deadline will move on to the second leg.
The second leg of the challenge will test the creativity of the participants, who will be asked to complete a unique slogan related to the all-new Ford Focus. From this stage, 20 finalists will be selected to enter the grand finale event to determine who will drive away with their very own 4-door all-new Ford Focus Titanium.
The grand finale event will be held in February 2013 during which the 20 finalists’ knowledge of Ford and the all-new Focus will be put to the test in two rounds of elimination.
In addition to the grand prize, participants in the All-New Ford Focus Challenge will have the chance to win additional prizes, including a 10-day seven-night trip for two to Spain, an eight-day five-night trip for two to Australia as well as Nokia Lumia 800 smartphones and AEON Jusco shopping vouchers.
Malaysian consumers will also be able to preview, test drive and order the all-new Ford Focus when they visit all Ford’s showrooms throughout the country.
Ford is now offering a five-year warranty or a 200,000 km bumper-to-bumper new vehicle warranty for the all-new Focus. This five-year warranty also applies to the Ford Fiesta, Mondeo and S-Max models. As with all Ford passenger vehicles available in Malaysia, the all-new Focus also comes with Ford’s Extended Service Plan (ESP) to provide added peace of mind to customers at no extra cost. Ford ESP is a free three-year or 60,000km service maintenance programme that covers parts and labour free of charge. In addition to routine inspection and maintenance services, Ford’s ESP covers free replacements for selected wear-and-tear items, including spark plugs, shock absorbers, engine belts, brake pads, and wiper blades.
The five-year warranty combined with Ford ESP is designed to help Ford customers cut costs while increasing the resale value of their vehicles.
