Reliable and effective


Absolutely faultless. The is really a good value for money. To be very honest, at RM 49,700 for my Myvi EZi, it is indeed quite expensive. However, I now firmly believe that this is a really good car with good quality and reliability. There has been no funny noises and nothing seem to have gone wrong yet.

As for the power, it is quite a problem to run at a speed of 120km/h, but considering that it's an automatic transmission and only equipped with a 1.3 litre DVVT engine, this is to be expected.

General Comments:

Offers superior quality and reliability, and fuel consumption is also very good considering it's an automatic transmission.

Perodua has certainly done a very good job in delivering a 'Building Cars, People First' vehicle.

If you are single, and looking for quality, reliability and efficient fuel consumption, the Perodua Myvi has to be your No. 1 choice!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
