Woman born without arms drives a Perodua Axia, holds a job – what’s your excuse?

Life has always been unfair for Norfarrah Syahirah Shaari, who was born without arms. Completing simple daily tasks that most of us take for granted, she has to complete it using only her legs.Still, not having a pair of arms has not stopped the spunky 32-year old from Perak from living an independent life. Recently, Norfarrah made a name for herself when it was reported that she has been voluntarily sewing protective gowns for medical frontliners battling Covid-19.Yes, she threads a needle with

This RM 200m plant is why Perodua will continue using 4-speed automatics for many more years to come

Don’t expect Perodua to ditch its aging but proven 4-speed torque converter automatic transmissions anytime soon. Even as the rest of the world is trending towards CVT-type automatic transmission for city cars, Perodua’s tried and tested Akashi Kikai 4-speed automatic transmissions will continue to be sold in Malaysia for many more years to come.There’s a simple reason to that. Perodua’s customers are happy with what’s offered to them right now, so why bother changi

70 percent of Perodua owners still return to an authorised service centre, even after warranty

Nearly 70 percent of Perodua owners prefer to have their cars maintained by an authorised Perodua service centre, making one of the highest, if not the highest for any automotive brand in the country.Speaking at a press conference yesterday for Perodua's 2019 business review, President and CEO Dato' Zainal Abidin Ahmad said the figure is two percent higher than the Perodua’s forecast. Last year, Perodua’s network of service centres received over 2,347,000 cars, an 8.3 percent

Used Perodua Axia: It's already affordable so why buy used?

Considering that the Perodua Axia is already the most affordable car in Malaysia, is there a reason why you should buy the Axia second-hand?2019 Perodua Axia StyleThe Perodua Axia is well-known for being the entry-level car to get. At its debut, it comfortably succeeded its predecessors the Perodua Viva and Perodua Kancil without preamble thanks to the many built-in features that seem to cater to most Malaysians needs.Yes, if ever there is an “all-Malaysian-car” it would be the Axia

Why Perodua isn’t replacing the Alza yet

The Perodua Alza is a 7-seater MPV that was introduced here back in 2009, which makes it one of the oldest new cars you can purchase today.Despite being 11 years old, Perodua won’t be pulling the plug on the Alza just yet, as the company recently reiterated that it won’t be discontinued any time soon.Old as it may be, the Alza still does its job wellDeveloping a brand-new Alza isn’t Perodua’s top priority at the moment, as the MPV market is slowing down and Perodua's

Here’s why the Perodua Axia matters to Malaysians

(Model | Gallery)Malaysians can obtain their driving license at the age of 17 and most of us are behind the wheel almost immediately after. With over 116,000 km worth of tarmac across the country and the limited modes of public transportations, motor vehicles are still the primary way of getting around in Malaysia.Cars have and always will be, a luxury. Unfortunately, for many families, it has turned to a necessity. It is their means of getting to work, sending their children to school

Review: Perodua Aruz 1.5 AV, is it worth paying RM 77,900 for a Perodua?

The video also possibly hinted that there might be something in store for the Axia Style.We can easily admire the colourful animation as a Bezza swerves round a roadworks obstacle to demonstrate its ABS and EBD or even how smooth the Aruz moves up the hill so effortlessly due to HSA.But something interesting comes along as the Axia Style appears in the video.Per

You can say that you want about Perodua. Good if you like the company, but the company couldn’t be bothered if you think lowly of its budget cars anyway.Since launching the first Kancil in 1994, the company has developed a laser-like focus on its customers, giving them what they want, which turns out to be just very regular cars that are cheap to buy, cheap to run, cars that go about their duties with zero drama.Perodua ended September by recording its highest ever monthly sales of 25,035

Perodua still sells 2x as many cars as Proton, why hasn’t MCO affected Perodua?

With the on-going Covid-19 putting a damper on businesses, you would expect that a budget car brand like Perodua, whose range of lower priced A- and B-segment cars are bought mostly by lower income B40 group consumers, will be affected more than higher range brands.Actually the opposite is true. While the government’s temporary suspension of sales tax have artistically boosted market demand, Perodua dealers are reporting a higher number of customers downgrading from Japanese brands to a Pe

Is it true that the Proton Saga is cheaper to maintain than a Perodua Bezza? The answer is not that simple.

Both the Perodua Bezza and Proton Saga are Malaysia’s cheapest sedans, but which one is cheaper to maintain?Table is not a full representation of actual cost because Proton has parked some necessary maintenance jobs as optional, and doesn't reveal its price. Perodua however, includes all these optional jobs under the ProCare list.If you were to make a simple comparison based Proton's quoted prices for its maintenance plan, the Saga's total maintenance cost over a 5-year/100,000

Perodua Aruz vs Proton Exora: The inevitable national brand 7-seater comparison

Before we start the story, allow us to clarify: No, the Proton Exora and Perodua Aruz are not in the same segment. The Exora is an MPV while the Aruz is an SUV. But the reason we’re comparing both cars together is because they’re similarly priced (the Aruz from RM 72,900, Exora from RM 59,800; before SST exemption) and they sit 7.If you’re wondering that the Perodua Alza would be a better comparison to the Exora, allow us to explain that though the Alza sits 7, it is more of a
