the myvi looks fresher than other cars anyhow...very modern... yet spacious interior...if not mistaken the delivery is immediate depends on model and colour. my relative got her myvi in 2 weeks coz she chose white, otherwise can get less than 1 week...seems like the white myvi is in demand now.

In my opinion, u should test drive between myvi & Getz. i think myvi is better & their pros are to be highlighted. For a 49k (1.3 auto premium), it has ABS, air bag, a powerful 1.3 DOHC. Given other vehicles at this price range, u might not get similar specs. Besides driving around in a myvi is really comfortable, given its spacious indoor cabin, height...

However, it is still up to you to consider. if u seriously think you cant possibly accept the probs encountered by a myvi. Its better to buy the alternative. Its ur money, dun buy something u dun like or not comfortable with.

Myvi...
better for spare parts and bigger space...
better go and test drive it urself for fast result...
bare in mind, korean Automobile is not focus on selling the car but the spare parts... Damn expensive!!! coz my fren just change the alternator for his Sonata..
no recond can find and even second hand also hard... at last pay for 1k for the stupid alternator... some more... no second hand value... good luck...

mag9556, you may ask your friend to check with Mr. Lee at Subang. Around RM600 for brand new genuine alternator, all the way from Korea.
You can PM me if your friend need Mr.Lee contact.

To be frank for most of you who complain the Hyundai genuine parts is expensive, I believe you all can refer to zan's earlier post about the price of Honda Jazz genuine parts, it's more expensive if you compare with Hyundai.

Hmmm...I didn't think this thread would go very far to be honest, but it has.

Anyway, maybe I should rephrase my earlier posts a little bit. The Getz (the CBU one at least) is deffo a better car overall than a Myvi (apart from the engine. The Daihatsu sourced 1.3 of the Myvi is better). But it costs quite a bit more than the Myvi. Not to mention higher maintenance and parts (ok, maybe slightly if you know where to look).

But let's look at it from the top. We are talking about buying a small, cheap, hassle-free, relatively uninspiring car. So the most important thing is value and the Myvi truly is bang-for-buck the better option.

But hey...maybe it is just me. I'm the kind of guy that wouldn't spend 100k on a Jazz. I could get a bigger car for that or maybe even TWO Myvis.

i have driven myvi for me .. it has a very powerfull pick up for auto car.. but i think is not a fuel economy car because for the timing.. the timing is stated 0.8 when put at D without moving and sometimes touches up to 1.5 when its at N. this is why the pick up is very good .. timing is so high but is not good for the fuel....
but is actualy a good thing.. if u notice kelisa and kenari.. the steering use to shake everytime in p,n or d .... perodua increase the timing to make the engine more stable .. but is not good for the fuel...... but is local assemble.. so the maintainence is cheap, can easily find spare part, and is surely a higher demand car compare to getz when u sell it... better 2nd hand value...

is a spacious car for everyday driving and a very comfortable car for everyday driving...

never driven getz before so i dare not give any comment on that ... but i will still go for a myvi.....

cheers... :)

my sister own a getz, i've driven it for a couple of times..
it's the CBU hyundai unit,
i've neva driven the myvi so i cant really comment much..

the interior built is better than the myvi..
the myvi's good.. but the getz's just tat lil bit better..
u go to perodua's showroom get a test drive and then head to hyundai's and try out the getz..
u'll notice the difference.

the driving experience?
the getz is definitely no performance hatch or sedan..
there's no power and it corners err.. it just doesnt give you the confidence to corner at speed (but you shudnt do tat, it's not meant to be~lol..)
i dont expect much but at least it's comfortable inside..
the amount of headroom helps..
the seats are not good though..
maybe its just me..

the FC is just normal..
the one i drove around in was a 1.3
i dont have the exact figures but the car being underpowered,
it need a lot of 'push' to move it in speed..
but if you dont push it all the time it actually does fine..
coz IMHO, the car's lazee lump actually makes you drive 'slow & steady'..
which is good considering what kind of ppl this car is made for..

the pricing of parts is more expensive than local cars..
there are some parts that arent really tat much in difference..
and aftermarket parts? im sorry but the getz just cant compete w the myvi in this area..

the premium u guys said u gotta pay over the myvi?
if u're gettin the inokom one, it aint tat much..
comes w airbag (driver side only not both) and abs..
bear in mind the cbu unit doesnt..

second hand value? check the motortrader..
i honestly dont think the getz could do better than the myvi in this..

about the myvi, i cant comment much but i personally would go for the myvi.
I think you're better off gettin opinions from a myvi owner or try it out yourself instead of just readin off other ppl's comments..

Uninspiring, dats a good word to describe a Myvi, the ride is so boring to me. Somemore the car very bouncy to me.

Correct, but the same can be said about the Getz. And for that matter, most cars in this bracket.

The only thing the Getz has over the Myvi is build quality (in CBU form, not so sure about CKD). And you are going to hand over a significant dollop of cash for it.

That's why, for my rational, it isn't worth it.
