1994 Perodua Kancil 660 EX 660 from Malaysia
Good for economical driving.
The engine sound is annoying (noisy). The suspension is very bad. It is not strong enough to carry 4 adults at one time especially when climbing hills. The air-conditioner does not function well even after servicing. The gear is always stuck when you are changing to first gear when starting to drive from a complete stop. Recently, the driveshaft just broke and I had to replaced it. The transmission oil has been changed twice in 12 months. The wiper became loose from its place and had to be replaced.
This car have a very economical fuel consumption. It is a very small mini car that is easy to park and drive on narrow roads. It is more suitable to be driven alone as the engine capacity is only 660cc. The servicing fees are tolerable. It is like a toy car where you can polish your driving skills when you drive this car. A lot of driving schools in Malaysia use the Perodua Kancil as a driving car besides other cars. This car is not equipped with airbag, EBD, ABS, side impact bars and any other safety features. So, I have to be extra careful when driving this car to avoid accidents. You can imagine will happen if an accident occurs. The car might be smashed to pieces... I might become like KFC mashed potatoes. Just imagine..........
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My friend, I found that your statement is really sickening on that young and bright prospect Kancil. I think you had put to high expectation on that small car, why don't you put it as a light economical basic car. Well its just nice to its very suitable for learning period for just its widely use by the driving school in Malaysia. Anyhow I'm having 2 Kancils and my wife and kids is enjoying the car. Until today since 2001 I bought the car I let my kids to drive the car and taught them how. Now even my ten years old daughter can drive a car especially Kancil with my assistance, what a fun mennnnnn...
