Road Test - Perodua Myvi 1.3 EZi (A)
12 Oct 2012  |  Perodua Reviews
Manufactured by Malaysian carmaker Perodua since 2005, the Myvi is surprisingly well-equipped. But will car buyers have this hatch under their radar? Read More

Review
A car that lacks greatly in car safety department. It does not meet the standards of EuroNCap crash rating, not even a star. This is a typical bread and butter car so there's nothing you can expect out of this car. Bottom-line is it is made of cheap materials making it affordable but compromises on safety.

I bought this 1.3A Myvi in 2009, @ard $43K. This is my secondary car, i used it primarily for driving between the work sites everyday, but i drive home in my VW Tiguan.

The car does not come with powerful Toyota engine but weigh a lot less than most cars in the 1.3-1.4 class, in fact too light for good handling. Again all these is a compromise for good fuel economy.

The bodyroll you get from this car is horrible, i hate to do fast bends with it, because rear passenger will complain a lot, especially my engineers. The ride is pretty bumpy, leather seating doesn't make much of a diff either. It has adequate leg room, but lacking in shoulder, so basically is comfortable for 4 persons only. Most of us are of an average 1.75m tall 65kg built men.

I do not recommend this car for long journeys, the leather seatings are not bad, but not too comfortable either. It is a car you wish to spend as little time in it, the road noise can be too stressing for long journeys. One of my engineer's Hyundai Matrix is an older car but has better sound proofing.

I do not know how reliable this car can be, because mine starts to show some wear and tear. I did the usual maintenance regularly, and i have only done 12,000km. The doors now rattles when the car idles. However, i think the door wasn't well design to fit well. I've to slam the door hard just to close it when i bought it 2yrs ago. It can get irritating whenever it refuses to close.

My suggestion, if you really wanna buy it because it has a Toyota engine, pay more to get a Toyota Yaris, especially if this is your first ever car. Perhaps get a Korean, they are getting better than Japanese in recent times.

Myvi is cheap to buy, yet not necessarily worth to own especially COE is on the rise.

What I like
It is cheap.
Small enough to park easily.
Fuel Economy is good.

What I do not like
Failed Euro NCap Crash standard.
Rubbish interior quality
Bad door fittings.
Noisy cabin.
Too much bodyroll when cornering.
No iPhone sync to car stereo

Review
While many are skeptical or have negative perception of Malaysian made cars, Myvi will certainly prove wrong to many. This is one car that will surprise you and meet your basic needs. I am just sharing with you my personal experience. I changed the original seats to leather seats and it looks perfectly good. Thanks to Xavier who relentlessly giving good customer service.

When I told my friends that I bought Myvi, many actually exclaimed 'Huh?', "Why you buy that car?", "Why never buy XXX?" and many other skeptical remarks.

After they have seen my car, sat in my car, and drove my car, this is what they said:
1. "Wow, the interior is so spacious. Better than some Korean made cars."
2. "I love this car, the engine is powerful"
3. "Cool, easy and smooth driving experience"
4. "Very sleek, definitely my choice of car as soon as I passed my driving license".
5. "You've made a good choice buying this car. Impressive."

What I like
Interior space.
Smooth engine, smooth driving experience.

What I do not like
Well, for basic needs to move from point A to point B, I have no complaints.

Review
Considered a few car model/brand and decided on getting a Myvi (even though it's a Malaysia brand).

Good fuel consumption (depend on how you step your accelerator), spacious, low maintenace and smooth driving/handling so far. A good Point A to B car. The price quite dependent on COE so not much comment.

Must comment on their salesman, Joseph, who is very patient when attending/explaning the details of their different models of cars. Good customer services and prompt in updating us with the COE results. Even after sales, he is always prompt and there for us when we have any queries regards to cars ownership (since this is my first time owning a car). Keep up the good work and services!

Of course, there will always be some down side. Just bought my Myvi for less than 1 month and the supposed to be leather covering on the car doors came dropping off and causing the inconvi of going back their office for Glueing which makes me car-less for 3-4 days... haiz... the initial leather covering (took 1-2weeks to do) then now 3-4days of waiting. don't know what will be next dropping off from the car.

What I like
Fuel Consumption, Spacious and Good Customer Service.
Overall a good and economical car.

What I do not like
Better to find your own car shop to do the leather (not leather anyway) seats and interior covering... *disappointed*

Review
At first i was not into malaysian car that much but after yesterday i was into it. Especially Myvi. The comfort is there and the engine run smoothly. And i found out the engine they use is from toyota engine. Good Petrol consumption and good for economical car. For those who looking for economical car i advise you try Myvi. I also manage to drove around for awhile. And i really enjoy driving the car.

What I like
the design and the engine.

What I do not like
I found out that there is no airbag. quite dangerous if accident. but i believe this thing can be done
