FULL REVIEW: Perodua MYVI 1.3SXi (M)

In this blog entry, I'm reviewing my Sister's 2007 Perodua MYVI 1.3SXi(M).

This is the 52nd month she owned the MYVI SXi. We took delivery of the Perodua MYVI SXi in May 2007. I'd say that this car's Under-used. Mileage's only 43,752km.  Which translates to only 841km per month.

Perodua MYVI has 1 of the BEST RESALE VALUE in Malaysia with 66% retained value for a 5 years old car and 76% retained value for a 3 years old car.  Losing out only to Honda Civic FD, VW Golf GTI and Mini Cooper/S.  It's as good as Toyota Avanza and Vios. Price starts from RM26000 for an early 2005 manual onwards.  A 2007 1.3SXi Manual like this one still worth RM32,000.  Note that it's priced at RM47,000 OTR when new.  RM15,000 depreciation in 52 months is IMPRESSIVE don't you think so?

ABOVE: VERY LOW MILEAGE at 43,752km as at 30 August 2011.

BEST: 34L good for 550km. (100% highway driving)  16.2km/l .  (11.7 cents)

WORST: 34L good for 340km (100% City driving) 10km/l. (19 cents)

AVERAGED: 34L good for 450km. 13.2km/l. (14.3 cents)

(Note fuel tank is 42litres but my sister always pump once the low-fuel light blink nonstop appeared.)

0-100km/h in 10.7 seconds.
Top speed: Unknown.  But someone posted 180km/h in Youtube.

Any problems so far: 

I'm happy to report that the Engine, suspension and gearbox (including clutch) trouble free so far (touch wood).  BUT there's these minor issues:

1) 12V/Cigarette lighter socket STOPPED working since 1st year owning the car.  We only found out this problem on the 25th (June 2009) month owning the car when I tried to plug in my GPS Car Charger.  This means that WARRANTY OVER.  Too bad, cannot claim.

2) 1x Power windows need viagra.  Ie. Can wind down but Difficulty winding up.  Thank Goodness the Driver side's okay.  My sister just ignored and try not to open the front passanger side power windows as replacement power windows motor costs RM350++ EXCLUDING WORKMANSHIP.

Other replacements:  Wipers replaced once (recently Early Aug 2011), Battery replaced once, Tyres: 1 round (ALL USED tyres) Goodyear NCT5.  Spark plugs 2 rounds.  As my sister only send the car to Perodua Authorized workshop in the 1st 2 years,  ie. 1st 20,000km, many parts still unchanged.  Eg. Fuel Filter, Air filter (just cleaned with  blower so far), Air cond pollen filter etc.

Well there's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words, here's some photos:

Above: White backlit Optitron Meters.  Standard MYVI = Orange meters.

ABOVE 3 photos: Not only 60:40 split fold, the rear seat can pushed forward = FLAT FOLDING seats.  Good For 2 persons and a LARGE BREED DOG.
Being SXi, this car comes with Dual Airbags, ABS+EBD and Immobilizer.
Above and below: EXCELLENT LEG AND HEAD ROOM.  Note: I'm 174cm.
Better Leg and Headroom than Myvi Lagi Best.
