The devastating floods in Kerala have led carmakers like Hyundai and Volkswagen to lend support to their customers across the state. The latest to join this list is Honda India, which announced its support to the cause on August 31. The Japanese carmaker says it will offer a discount of 50 per cent on labour costs and 10 per cent on spare parts. Moreover, there’s an additional exchange support for non-Honda cars as well. For speedy assistance, Honda has upped its roadside assistance network and streamlined the supply of key spare parts to its service centres. The offers are over and above the regular benefits available at Honda service centres.
Hyundai and Volkswagen are giving free roadside assistance and special benefits on spare parts. The Korean automaker has gone a step ahead and has contributed Rs 1 crore towards Kerala Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund (CMDRF).
