IINM Nothing much change between those model except:

-sei to v6
-bodykit and interior change
-added atf cooler
-tune by lotus.

Common issue on perdana is(based on cakap2 in workshop and other user):
-gbox
-alternator
-burnt gasket

but alternator and burnt gasket imo more on owner did not maintain it well. Myself have no issue except gearbox, change to manual and no issue and power window unit finally give in after 16 years.

price wise, the later should be expensive, unless the earlier version is not bone stock.:smokin:

basically its the gbox. but after installing ATF cooler. should be ok.
the gbox like i always said, its just the clutches have worn out.
but if no ATF cooler, the ATF may get too hot and damage the valvebody.
forgetting to service the gbox and changing both ATF and ATF filter may cause problems too.
ATF gone bad and dirty.

alternator no problem for me.

head gasket yes, after maybe 150K km, it starts to leak water or oil.

tappet sounding louder as the older the car gets.

power window no problem. only now (after 15 years), it starts giving me problem (on the driver side) coz always using it.

Running hydraulic tappets like 4G63? I am now using diesel engine oil much quieter already......lol
if i'm honest, its even worse. the hydraulic lifter sounded even louder. haha..
maybe can find newer generation or aftermarket lifter with larger holes.

my 4G63T's lifter used to sound loud.
after using HDEO, sound lessen a bit.
but now after i changed the lifter to aftermarket ones with larger holes, bunyi tiada lagi. hahaha

IMHO every ATF can withstand heat. how high is the difference.
also, is Dexron 6 suitable for Mitsu gbox?
Mitsubishi specified Diaqueen SP3 as the ATF to use.

A car of my friend's was stolen at Taman Bahagia, Petaling Jaya between the time 1.30pm - 10.00pm. It was parked at a housing area in front of a padang and no one would thought that it could be stolen there. Now, he has lodged a police report in BALAI POLIS SS2. Hopefully, the police could locate where the car is.

Anyone who sees a white viva elite, car number plate BKN 5608. Please do let the police know or call 017-2064126 Kevin Liew (Owner) !
