This very honest Peugeot 308 GT owner is selling his flooded car and let’s try and assist him.
Just a month ago, an insurance company issued a release advising car owners to get flood cover as the weather patterns in our country have changed drastically. The insurance company did a study and found some 59 percent of Malaysian car owners lacking flood protection.
Now with the devastating flash floods, we have seen an insurance company immediately taking care of its customers who have purchased flood cover for vehicles and also their homes.
Meanwhile, here is a car owner who has been very HONEST about the condition of his weekend ride. He has shared truthful information and current pictures of the car after being hit by flash floods at his routine workshop (the car just happened to be at the workshop for maintenance) and he needs to sell his rare Peugeot 308 GT to get back on his feet.
There will be many flooded cars on sale in the coming weeks, but this is the FIRST ever to be completely honest. Let’s help this 308 GT owner and share his car sale to get him the best possible price.
