In addition, the company also made clear that prior to delivery, the vehicles will have been properly disinfected in order to ensure that both staff and customers are well-protect in accordance with the government’s call to effectively curb the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) virus in the country.

Customers collecting their new vehicles will be informed of the delivery dates by their sales advisor and be provided with an appointed time of the hand-over in order to avoid crowding or prolonged exposure in the outlet.

Isuzu vehicle owners whose vehicle warranties were to have expired during the MCO period will automatically enjoy a further 30-day extension from May 13 while those whose vehicles were also overdue for scheduled maintenance during this period will not have their warranty affected by the delay.

Customers intending to bring their vehicles in for service are advised to make prior appointments with their respective Isuzu Authorised Service Centres as each outlet is operating according to CMCO regulations in their respective states and are encouraging systematic social distancing by limiting the daily intake based on the capacity of the individual service facility and maintaining the minimum 1m distance.
