Car Review - Perodua Myvi 1.3 EZi (A)
Manufactured by Malaysian carmaker Perodua since 2005, the Myvi is surprisingly well-equipped. But will car buyers have this hatch under their radar?

A cheaper Japanese alternative `
Took over a Myvi (2009, pre FL) when its COE almost end and I just renewed it. Got the car modded already, thus my comments will be different than stock owners. My Myvi's ride is super harsh due to the sports springs and coils installed. The handling is pretty good, with the car feels very planted to the ground, helped by the stiff suspensions and strut bar fitted. I've heard stock owners complained their cars feels like swaying due to the soft and bouncy suspension, pretty normal on Japanese makes. Interior quality, mostly plastics. Some finishes are not properly fitted, mostly due to aging. Despite that, it doesn't rattle while driving at high speed. Obviously, being a cheap Japanese make, plastics are everywhere, hard scratchy plastic. My unit comes with bucket seats, so it feels lowered and more sporty. Reliability? Typical Japanese make. With a small engine, 1300cc, and a 5-speed manual gearbox, this thing literally doesn't give problems, unless you're that bad at taking care of cars. Parts can be found everywhere once you cross the water. You can also find parts from the halfcut Japanese make sibling, the Passo and the Sirion. Maintaining it is as easy as 1-2-3, with very little hassle. The 1.3L engine is sufficient when comes to daily drive in Singapore, especially city. It is very easy to zip around tight spots due to the tiny dimensions. Unfortunately, with a full load, the car will slightly suffer. The space inside is pretty good, even with full 5 passengers on board, they are able to keep smiling without complaining about legroom. With the seats able to recline 1 step, it also helps in long journey, eliminating fatigue. Boot space is on the smaller side. If you were to go shopping the whole day in JB, the boot probably couldn't swallow it all. Remove the spare tire and probably you can utilize that space. Folding the seats do help too, as it makes the whole floor flat, easy to load longer items. Long, fast journeys like around the highways can be quite irritating as the soundproofing is almost non-existent, but you can always install on your own. Stopping at a traffic light, you will not hear the engine noise but the fan noise kicking in, once in a while, which can be annoying.

A practical and easy to maintain car `
This is a very practical and easy to drive car. The 1.3 litre engine pulls well and is good for city driving. Could do with a bit more power for highway driving but more than adequate for city driving. The face lift version is more stylish with more curves than the old boxy version. Handling is fair for such a short wheel base car and ride is reasonable comfy. Parts are easy to find north of the border and servicing is easy with many work shops familiar with maintaining this car. The rear space is very good but the boot is small.

Budget car, but NOT for new drivers `
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.
