What I love most about my Kelisa is that it is fuel economic and easy to handle. What I don't like most about it is that the brake and gas pedals are at an angle which is too high. You literally have to bend your foot upwards and after a while, that can get really tiring. If your seat is close to the steering wheel, your leg would suffer (because of the small foot space plus the weird angle your foot has to be placed on the pedal), if you push the seat back to relax your leg, you really have to stretch your arms to reach the steering wheel. I find it difficult to find a comfortable position when driving.

I think the kelisa is a boring and Unimaginative car. It was made with no thought or passion it was just made to make money. I think whoever likes this car or any other perodua car has something wrong with their brain. they are all boxy, boring, and make you want to gauge out your eyes.

Hi, Kelisa's driver.. I would like to get the Kelisa as I want to minimize my outgoing pocket money on my current Proton Saga. I need sincere advise before I decided to fish one.
1) What's the differences between the Manual and Auto kelisa?
2) What's the petrol consumption like? (How much full tank & how many km can it go)
3) What is the power if full loaded of 4?
4) Current price going at $33900, is it the best time for me to get the Kelisa now?
5) I understand it does not come with spare tyres.. any owner experience punctured tyre before?
6) How do you guys find the safety features? eg:brakes, lighting, and etc.
Kindly drop me your sincere advise please..

Hi, I'm one of the Kelisa owner (my Kelisa is the 2003 Kelisa Auto - the old model before they change the accessories). I'd been using it for nearly three years (complete 3 years coming this June) for extensive daily travelling to and from Skudai - Pasir Gudang for work. I'd been travelling with this car as far as Raub, Pahang and as high as Genting (the cable car spot).
So far, this is an economical car that I love most. Although a bit small, but yet powerful. I'm not too sure about the manual version as I'd not drive any of it before. A full tank equals to an approximate of 40 litres of fuel and I'd been driving to Melaka from Skudai with a little bit less than 1/2 tank.
A full load of 4 person will make it a bit slow for a start. But once move, the momentum is there. Anyway, it all depends on the weight of load that you bring in.
I believe that's a reasonable price. However, the kelisa that I purchased before comes with a spare tyre. Guess you gotta check with other dealers.
Safety features is OK with me. That's it.

Hi, I'm a kelisa owner too. Just bought it last year August. It is good in term of fuel saving and enough power to move your from the start, especially when the traffic light is turned to green, you will find no car is leading you.
Every time going to somewhere else, especially town area whereby hard to find a parking lot, you will then realise how good a compact car is.
For all kelisa owner, love your baby and keep it well as I doing.

Kelisa is a reasonable buy for the price. Value for money. Why? Because it is economical - fuel efficient and reasonable purchase price. It is efficient cause it has sufficient speed and excellent parking ease. Finally it is effective in getting me from point A to B without reliability issues cropping up.

I own a Kelisa EZ. At first I didn't like it because it didn't have the wow factor. But now, as I've matured, I've come to appreciate its qualities. It's fun to drive and fuel-efficient. Considering the high car price in Malaysia, I'll be using it for a long time.

I bought a Kelisa about two years ago; and am very happy with it, except for one thing. The car is getting water inside, front passenger side and rear left side. The water forms in the middle of the floor board with no sign of water on the sides to indicate where the water is coming from. This happens even if the car is parked. The dealer was unable to find the problem. Has anyone had a similar problem?

Check that your air intake collector area below windscreen is clear of leaves, and check that the heater unit below it has clear drain holes/pipes, as on many cars these can block and overflow into the cabin.
Check roof aerial is watertight.
Check all grommets underneath car and on bulkhead.
Check that the door cards (interior door trim) still have the polythene backing in place-we have found these to be poorly fitted in the Kelisa, or tampered with if speakers fitted.
If all else fails, tape newspaper around footwell to see where it is coming from.

Hello, I'm the owner of a Kelisa auto 2004 model..
I've just replaced my car with new extractor and it works well, as I can easily catch up to 160-170km/h.. this makes me proud to be a driver of this small compact car..

I'm the 2nd hand 1.0L Kelisa owner, I bought it 3 years ago. My plate no is JGN.
From the time I bought it until now, my Kelisa never once had a problem. I really love it, that's why I gave my Kelisa a 15X6" sport rim, better shock absorbers, strut bar, and it's so easy to handle. Also I modified the exhaust system from extractor to muffler, and it goes very light..
Everyday I go from JB to PSR GDG, and PSR GDG to JB. My fuel cost is about half that of my friend that uses a Wira 1.5 EFI... next time I want to give it a turbo set..

Hi, I'm using Kelisa ezi 1.0 auto, milenia gold. Bought it in 2005.
It sways a bit when making turns at 70km/h.
Its audio system is very satisfying, and I can feel its power whenever I start from a traffic light. I'm no.1.
Overtaking a car is difficult in urban areas due to its lower power, but on highways, no problem at all. Once it reaches 90km/h, you will overtake any car without problem.
It looks compact and cute, and once you pimp it, you can feel a monster beneath the hood.
Its light weight makes it easy to accelerate. Don't think, buy it. It's a good car at a low price.

Hey there everyone, nice to read lots of good comments about the Kelisa EZ. I own one too, for four years now. Very fuel economic, cute and easy to drive in.
There were some minor problems, but Perodua managed to take care of them all. Since it is no longer manufactured, a lot of my friends are asking to buy mine from me with a very very high price :D. But I won't sell it for the world.
Take good care of your baby Kelisa guys.
