NEWS: Perodua and Nippon Paint Give Home A Makeover For Deepavali

Perodua and Nippon Paint (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd are joining forces to give a home for children and senior citizens a makeover in preparation for the festivals of lights.

The Kasih Sayang Welfare Home, which operates from a small house on a roadside near Perodua Headquarters, cares for 10 senior citizens and 13 children.

The home was established in 2003 by Mr Ragunathan and his wife Mrs Malathy, the home originally had 10 dependents, which consist of senior citizens and the couple decided to relocate to accommodate a larger number of people. 

“We recognize the selfless devotion and kindness of Mr Ragunathan and his beloved wife, Mrs Melathy in taking care of the elderly and children. May God repay your kindness many folds,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh said. 

Nippon Paint was represented by Ms Gladys Goh, the Group General Manager.

Perodua contributed food, clothing, funds and volunteers to Kasih Sayang Welfare Home to help ease their burden while preparing for the upcoming Deepavali celebrations. While Nippon Paint supplied RM 9,000 worth of paints for a total home makeover.

The couple are renting a single storey home at RM 1,500 a month and is assisted by 2 caretakers who also reside at the same address. 

“We thank Perodua and Nippon Paint for their generous contributions as this will go a long way in giving a brighter Deepavali for those under our home. 

“While we do our best to care for those under our charge, we hope that the general public would assist us as we still need funds to care for those in need.”

“It is our hope that one day, we would have our own home and further add to our numbers as we see many people would need a place to call home,” Mr Ragunathan said. 

In addition, Perodua volunteers also gave 25 orphans from the Pusat Jagaan Kanank-kanak Divine Life Society, Kuala Kubu Bharu, Hulu Selangor, which is home for children aged between 5 and 18, a full make over.

“The children were treated to a full day of pampering from our volunteers while at the same time the orphans were also given hygiene tips by our trainers,” Aminar said.

Perodua also contributed cash and kind to the home in preparation for the festival of lights. The contributions were handed over by Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Senior General Manager Mr Suresh Kumar.

“We hope that our contribution has had a positive impact in the lives of the people at these organisations and we also wish to take this opportunity to wish happy Deepavali to all who celebrate it and for those travelling to meet their loved ones this long weekend holiday, we wish you safe journey,” Aminar said.

NEWS: Special Service Campaign For Toyota Vios, Corolla Altis, Alphard and Yaris

UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT) has announced a Special Service Campaign (SSC) for the replacement of the inflator module in the SRS airbag system on the front passenger side of a certain number of vehicles. This follows the announcement by Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) that an additional number of vehicles are affected by the defect in the inflator module in the SRS airbag system.

This SSC is an expansion of earlier campaigns relating to certain vehicles equipped with SRS airbag inflator modules. The defect is due to propellant degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures and high temperature cycling. Inflator modules which contain a non-desiccated, phase stabilized ammonium nitrate propellant may cause the rupture of the module. Should such a situation occur, metal fragments will pass through the airbag as it inflates and into the vehicle interior at high speed. As a result, serious injury or death could occur.

Based on information received from TMC, the number of affected Toyota Vios, Corolla Altis, Alphard and Yaris in Malaysia, is around 80,000 units. The vehicles are manufactured between October 2007 and December 2011 and distributed by UMWT. However, units imported by other parties and sold in Malaysia which may be affected by this SSC are not included within this number.

TMC is currently working on obtaining the necessary parts for the SSC. Once the parts are available, UMWT will notify owners to request them to bring their cars to an authorised Toyota service centre to make the necessary replacements which should take about 1 to 3 hours. All costs involved for the replacement will be borne by UMWT.

UMWT is aware that some customers who are not the first owner of these vehicles may not be contactable. To ensure the safety of Toyota owners UMWT advised Toyota owners who own these vehicles to contact any authorised Toyota service centre or calling the Toyota Freephone at 1800-8-TOYOTA (869682).

For this new SSC, UMWT is also currently updating the VIN database and Toyota owners in Malaysia can visit the VIN Checker webpage through
