1999 Perodua Nippa EX 847cc
White goods of the automotive industry
Well, the only thing to go wrong at the moment is the radiator. It leaks from one of the cores when it gets hot. The car itself has never overheated mind, just keep topping it up!
Vinyl seats a little worn on the bolsters.
Aftermarket stereo sounds awful, and one speaker is not working.
Rear windows squeaking when opened.
If the sun is shining and it's lovely and dry, this car is amazing! Great handling, great fun, wind the windows down and feel like you're in the past!
However, it's a different story if it rains! Brakes are a bit snatchy, which makes you skid. Due to the rubbish tyres on the car, the body roll is excessive and the handling is a bit interesting!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I find it amusing that the first review of the car I just bought was from someone whose previous car was a Saab. My 9-5 died, and I bought this as a stop gap as it was a week before payday, and now I think I will keep it. £300 well spent.
Not the spec'd interior I have become accustomed to, but the driving is more involved, albeit slower and cheaper. 60 is the new 100!
Reminiscent of my first car; a Mini-Metro. I will keep this happily until I can find what I truly want at a good price, and I may keep it even then as a handy second car.
Super little cars, called Kancil (little deer) in their homeland.
Check the oil breather pipes are clear, and don't crash it as you will be the airbag.
We loved ours, the Kelisas that followed, and the Myvis after that - but the little Nippa was a sweet little thing.
