The risk of floods is no small matter and can have a serious impact on a car owner’s financial well-being. So let’s take a look at why car owners need flood cover for their vehicles.
Malaysia experiences 2 monsoon seasons in a year:
This means one can expect heavy downpours to happen every year.
The worst damage to a car caused by floods can cost up to RM50,000 to repair. Cars that are fully submerged while engines are dead will not have serious damages where the cost to repair won’t be as high.
But if a car is fully submerged and car owner attempts to start the engine, the electric control unit (ECU) will be shorted out. This repair work can cost up to RM7,000 for an average car and RM30,000 for a BMW!*
