    actually DAIHATSU owned PERODUA 51%, owned PERODUA ENGINE MAFG 100%, therefore MYVI is a DAIHATSU instead of PERODUA, PERODUA not a nasional car.

  • Pual…. u are 40 days late, I read this website on the week myvi was launch.

    I am expecting my car within 2 weeks time, while I book a week before launch, ie 15th Mei.

    I read a fellow forum(er), he received the car 1.3EZ Standard (same as my order) where he book in Jun 10th.

    A bit dissappointed with Perodua delivery.

    I'm will only get my car on this Wednesday due to colour. My one is 1.3Ezi in Silver colour with car number W** 8**0. Order Black earlier but change my mind to Silver. I think beside the reds colour and mocha silver, others 5 color look greats.

    Dear mitsu_galant_2000, don't be a stupid moron! You're the one who is STUPID! Perodua is part of Daihatsu, that is why the Perodua vehicles looks similar to the once popular Daihatsus. Perodua have the RIGHT to reproduce these cars, and they produced based on our country's specs.

    If you take a look at the Acura RSX and the Honda Integra DC5, you'll find that both designs are the same. However, since Acura is part of Honda, they used the DC5 Integra as the base model for their RSX. As for you, you condemn Perodua just because of having the same vehicle design as the Daihatsus.

    If you're here just because you want to satisfy yourself by condemning Perodua, then GET THE HELL OUTTA HERE!!!

Kau ni belajar kat sekolah exam selalu dapat 'F' ke? Patutnya bersyukur ada Perodua. Lagipun nak import kereta CBU bukan senang tau! Kalau kau datang sini nak posting benda yang berunsur FITNAH, lebih baik GET LOST!

    Dear mitsu_galant_2000, why would you prefer to condemn Perodua just because of being owned by Daihatsu? You should be VERY mindful before sending your EVIL comments. We Malaysians, although supported Perodua, are NOT stupid! Stupid people like you only support anti-Malaysians.

    If you say that we Malaysians were proud of the so-called KERETA YANG DINAMAKAN SEMULA, you only proud to be an anti-Malaysian. You're truly a COWARD! Now read this saying- Cowards show their strengths by insulting, slandering and condemning brave people. Meaning? you think about it.

    And to everyone in here, NEVER support mitsu_galant_2000. He's trying to spread an anti-Malaysia propaganda. and to mitsu_galant_2000, GO TO HELL!!!

    Note to all (sorry because this is out of the topic)- Be mindful before sending your comments here. I've seen ANTI_mitsu_galant_2000's comment that indicates he's EXTREMELY ANGRY with mitsu_galant_2000, saying that he (mitsu_galant_2000) is slandering Perodua. You should know that slandering ONCE would cost 500 paybacks from the person who was slandered, and that means you're gonna get a serious beating from that person, and sometimes can be LIFE THREATENING. So please, be VERY careful and mindful before sending your comments here. And to mitsu_galant_2000, it's best if you stop slandering our car companies before the whole people in Malaysia point their fingers towards YOU, the cause of these car companies' bankruptcy. And to my best frien Paul Tan, I would like to apologise if what I gave is scarring another people's heart.
