Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) is urging customers to service their vehicles exclusively at authorised Hyundai service centres to ensure that parts used in their vehicles are genuine.
This is in light of recent reports on the sale of fake Hyundai and Kia parts by unauthorised auto parts dealers with some sold at the same price as the original items. The fake items seized were fast moving consumables including oil filters, air filters, brake pads and spark plugs.
Hyundai authorised service centres now offer up to 20% discount on selected genuine parts until 31 July 2018. The service promotion which started on 1st June 2018 also offers 10% discount on labour costs, a mystery gift for customers who spend RM500 and above on service, as well as a 15% discount for a fuel system cleaner.
As for owners of the Grand Starex Royale, there are discounts of up to 50% on genuine parts and two mystery gifts for a spend of RM500 and above on service.
“Service promotions such as this are meant to encourage vehicle owners to service their vehicles at Hyundai’s authorised service centres. Hyundai service personnel will then be able to examine the condition of their vehicles and authenticate the parts used if the vehicles have been serviced at unauthorised centres”, said Managing Director of Sime Darby Motors (Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan), Mr Dennis Ho.
“Customers need to be wary of such products and they shouldn’t risk their safety by using parts that may not be genuine”, he added.
