PETALING JAYA: The current Covid-19 situation is not affecting car sales, thanks to the government’s sales tax holiday which ends on Dec 31. Many car companies are also throwing in rebates and discounts on top of the tax holiday introduced by the government to stimulate the local automobile industry.
Nurul Shazwani Suhaimi, 24, said she bought a new car after finding out about the sales tax exemption.
“I was planning to buy my first car next year as I just started working early this year. I have been saving up for the down payment.
