1999 Inokom Permas 2.1 from Malaysia
This van is a Renault Trafic made in Malaysia under the name Inokom Permas. This is the worst van I ever drove. I had a Toyota Hiace before this and it was excellent.
I will never buy a Renault Trafic again. The dealer also never took care of us.
The engine and gearbox spec is really the worst in the world. It will sound very hard, like driving at 240kmh, even at 80kmh.
I would recommend anyone to never buy this stupid designed van.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Well, you could always have test driven it before buying it...
The desk board is worst like “keropok”no guarantee, It very difficult to get the spare parts. Right now my rare excel damage and cannot repair, I asked Quasar for the spare part, he said I need to buy complete set which cost RM 8,000.00. I don’t know what to do, Please Help me….
I think your situation is beyond help. What were you saying again?
As a testimony of how unpopular this Inokom Permas is, the Reserved Price of a 1999 model for auction is only RM5,000 and still there are no takers:

I've driven one of these Inokom Permas from Kuala Lumpur to Kunming, China through challenging Thailand highways and winding Laos road & back to Kuala Lumpur within 2 weeks without much problem. Only required one minor service along the way.
Hey, I need to find a Inokom Permas complete gear box. Any of this vehicle going to the scrapyard?
I need to replace the gear selection bushing for my Inokom Permas van. Can anyone help me?
Hello, can anyone advise what engine can be used to fit into an Inokom Permas?
I would prefer REAR WHEEL DRIVE. Auto would be nice.
The Inokom Permas High Roof is indeed a good buy, except for the engine is the very disturbing factor.
Thanks for sharing.
Hi, did you get the engine transplant, what type of engine is suitable? I'm also looking for one high roof, but worry about the engine & gear box. I'm from Penang Malaysia. Please keep in touch, my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
Some say Nissan engines can go in, but I've no idea what model it was. Anyway, these vehicles are now decaying on Malaysian roads. It's very hard to get spare parts; there's no support elsewhere.
I have this Inokom Permas model year 1999. I have a problem with thick white smoke from the exhaust. Don't know what to do, and the fuel is terrible.
