Typhoon Maring left many car owners in Metro Manila helplessly watching in despair as their vehicles were swallowed by rising floodwaters. Thankfully for Toyota car owners who were among the calamity victims this past week, the Japanese automaker is helping ease their pain by offering substantial discounts on parts and labor.
In particular, Toyota Motor Philippines is offering a 40% discount on a brand-new engine control unit (ECU), which is the most crucial part of the car that gets damaged in the event of flooding. Also, TMP is giving a 20% discount on labor and select flood-affected parts.
"We believe it is our duty to be of service to our valued customers especially in trying times like these," said TMP in a statement. "In that spirit, we are offering special discounts on repairs of flooded Toyota vehicles."
So, if your Toyota got submerged in floodwater earlier this week and you're not covered by insurance, at least you'll pay less should you decide to have it serviced by an authorized Toyota dealership.
