myvi remote control not working

Stability control is not the same as traction control

Last week, we shared our insights on traction control and how does the system work, and due to the nature of the topic, we have readers that got it confused with the stability control system instead. In a world full of jargon and acronym, this is understandable, because both safety systems do work hand-to-hand to keep you safe. What is stability control? You might have heard various acronym of stability control such as ESC, VDC, DSC, and ASC, but don’t be puzzled because it’s all the same thing.

The Toyota Raize is not that much bigger than a Perodua Myvi

One look at the Toyota Raize/Daihatsu Rocky twins and it's obvious that the compact SUV’s overall silhouette bares massive resemblance to the Perodua Myvi. The Daihatsu Rocky is produced by Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd which also does contract manufacturing for Toyota, which sells the same car as the Toyota Raize. While the Raize/Rocky might look like a bigger and taller Myvi, but the size of the SUV is not that much different from the little hatchback. Compared to the Perodua Myvi, the Toyota Raize

Deal Breakers: Perodua Myvi – Love the value proposition, not its seats

There is a good reason why the Perodua Myvi is Malaysia’s best-selling car, as no other segment rivals can beat its value-for-money proposition. Couple that with its stellar fuel economy and reputation for rock-solid reliability, it’s hard to topple the Myvi as the nation's best-selling car. When it was introduced back in late-2017, it was the first sub-RM60k car to feature Perodua’s ASA ADAS suite, which includes Pre-Collision Warning and Braking, Front Departure Alert, and Pedal Misoperation C

Perodua to debut Myvi Style soon?

Following the footsteps of the recently-introduced Axia Style, Perodua is said to be working on an SUV-styled Myvi, set for a debut in the coming months. Expected to be called Myvi Style, the forthcoming model could receive the same styling (heh) cues as the Axia Style. As such, the new Myvi Style should be getting SUV-inspired front and rear ends, fender extension pieces, and unique wheels. The interior of the new Myvi Style is also said to get different seat upholstery materials. Under the hoo

Watch: Perodua Myvi brakes to 'kepochi' Bomba, causes an accident

A video of Bomba putting out fire on a badly burning car caught our attention recently, but it was not because there is a car on fire, instead it was what happened after that. A Perodua Myvi caused another accident on the highway as he slowed down to watch the Bomba put out the fire of the burning car. In the video, the person holding the camera was focussed on the burning car that the fire brigade was already working put out. But “auntie” unwittingly caught the accident between 2 Perodua Myvis

This Rolls-Royce Cullinan model is the most expensive toy car in the world

This toy is not for those aged 21 and below as it will set you back at least $14,000 to own one. You certainly do not want a 5-year-old ruining your one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce Cullinan scale model at all. Like all Rolls-Royces, no two models are the exact same. That’s right, this scale model of the Cullinan is entirely customisable and bespoke. Customers can customise everything from which side the driver’s seat should be, right down to the colour of the seat belt. The Rolls-Royce Cullinan scale

Perodua Myvi Cross brochure leaked, most likely an April Fool’s joke

A couple of months ago, we reported that Perodua is working on a crossover version of the Myvi, possibly called the Myvi Style. More recently, our friends over at Funtasticko posted photos of what could be the Perodua Myvi Style, albeit with a twist. Never mind the fact that the brochure depicts the Indonesian-market Daihatsu Sirion Cross (the Perodua Myvi is sold in Indonesia as the Daihatsu Sirion), we noticed some errors that indicates that the brochure is most likely a fake. For starters, we

New Proton Iriz - Is It Finally A Better Car Than The Perodua Myvi?

The Proton Iriz was conceived back in 2014 as Proton’s effort to counter the ever-popular Perodua Myvi. Back then, the Iriz offered considerably more safety equipment than the Perodua Myvi, but response from the market remained lukewarm at best. Proton updated the Iriz a couple of times, with the latest update being introduced earlier this year. Five variants are available in total, up from the four variants from the 2017 update.
