Excellant value and great for city driving


I had to have the starter motor replaced after 39,000 miles.

General Comments:

The Perodua Kancil is sold in the UK as the Perodua Nippa. It was very cheap brand new. It gets fantastic petrol mileage. It is great for driving around town, but on the motorway the limitations do show. Spare parts are expensive if anything does go wrong and 99% of mechanics have never heard of them.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
