p/s: This is a personal point of view. Others may not agree with me or have different points of view.
Given a choice to buy a proton or a perodua car, I would always go for Perodua. I owned a Kancil (1 year), Myvi (7 years) and a Viva (2 years) before, and I was very happy with them. I’ve not encountered any engine problems and when I sold them off, they were still in good conditions. So, it’s worth my money. The only problem I had was only the space.
Here’s a bit about Perodua company; The shareholders of Perodua are UMW Corporation Sdn Bhd 38%, MBM Resources Berhad 20%, Daihatsu Motor Co. Ltd 20%, PNB Equity Resource Corporation Sdn Berhad 10%, Daihatsu (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd 5%, Mitsui & Co. Ltd 4.2% and Mitsui & Co, (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd 2.8%. So basically, with all these shares, QUALITY is assured.
After the Hiroshima bombing, Japan struggled to improve their economics status. They started off by manufacturing low quality products and at that time not many people wanted to buy products from Japan. However, after a few decades, Japan became one of the economics giants due to their quality products.
Take for example, Honda cars were not people’s choice of cars when compared to European cars.
But today, it’s a different story. Honda cars are becoming very popular among Asians due to their superb engine quality, state of the art technologies, modern design and interior accessories. In short, they have what you wished for. That’s why, when I decided to buy another car, I chose 2014 Honday City.
Now, here are my wish for the next Perodua’s car;
1. Bigger trunk for luggage.
2. Higher engine capacity. If possible more 1.5 cc models.
3. 6-speed gear transmission.
4. Use 15 inches rims for all models.
Does Perodua Axia has what it takes to be a better car than Myvi or Viva?
