Typhoon Ulysses affected many Filipinos due to the destruction it has brought to the country. Many parts of the metro got submerged in floodwater, which resulted in damaged properties that include flooded cars.
With that, Ford Philippines decided to lend a helping hand by providing a special discount of 20-percent on selected parts as well as on labor. Ford hopes that this will help customers get their Ford vehicles up and running once again. Of note, Honda Cars Phlippines, Inc. has also launched a similar program that offers discounted parts for Honda owners that got affected by the typhoon Ulysses.
