At the beginning of this month, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) began its promotions for the coming Hari Raya Aidilfitri festive season. This was just before the General Elections and the company offers a special Raya bonus to customers of up to RM12,000, depending on the model/variant.
Then came the announcement that the 6% Goods & Service Tax (GST) charged on almost all purchases, including motor vehicles, would no longer apply from June 1, 2018. It will eventually be replaced by a Sales & Service Tax, the Finance Ministry has confirmed.
As the Mitsubishi Motors Raya promotion continues through June, customers will therefore enjoy an additional ‘discount’ on new vehicle purchases with the GST not being charged. The savings will not only be on the vehicle retail price but also in insurance premiums.
For those keen on buying a new Mitsubishi model, MMM has provided this chart which shows the amount that can be saved by not having to pay GST and the additional savings during the Raya promotion.
As proof of the confidence that the company has in the durability of its vehicles, every Triton variant (except the Quest) comes with a long warranty of 5 years or maximum of 200,000 kms after first registration.
The Outlander 2.0/2.4 and ASX models come with a warranty period of 5 years as well and owners can enjoy the full 5 years as there is no limit on mileage travelled.
Every purchase of a new vehicle from an authorised Mitsubishi dealer also comes with complimentary membership 24-Hours Mitsubishi Assist during the first year of ownership. This membership entitles the owner to a comprehensive range of services including 24-hour breakdown assistance throughout Malaysia, referral services, as well as emergency assistance.
