If wan to improve your ride significantly can consider the below :-

1) Use Liqui Moly 10w-30 semi sync engine oil
2) NGK Iridium Spark plug
3) K&N Drop in air filter
4) Eneos ATF Multi gearbox oil
5) Yokohama C Drive 2 185/60/15 tyre

Above is what i have change on my 11 months old alza you wont be regret on what you have done. More comfortable and quiet ride. Smoother and more responsive engine.

I've asked before in SC Rawang... they say cannot, and it will void warranty... they claimed that their own engine oil is optimised for the 1.5 DVVT engine... doh.gif

Depends on service center.

Some accept some not. But mainly not recommend due to sales.

According to manual book same spec and above are ok.

But if you not service at P2 SC during warranty period, then consider no warranty .... because no record .

yup, a bit expensive at P2 service center, but no choice because we need warranty 3 years/100,000km.

also every time after finish service, they give me back the engine oil balance, about 1/5 inside left.

Anybody keep it and use for next future? If 5 times can save 1 time.

Call me cheapskate but I do... and P2 service guys have no problems with it...

And since Alza is a problematic car, I'd rather go service with them and bug them for any warranty claims until the 3 years run out...

My piece of junk masuk kilang this morning for follow up inspections and repairs of the following problems:

1. Cabin light not always turned on when car doors are opened
Action taken: Minor repairs.

2. Rattling sound of loose parts on B-pillars.
Action taken: Dismantle and inspect

3. Brake and acceleration pedals vibrate when wiper is running or when there's external loud noise.
Action taken: Further testing required

4. Front suspension noise when going over road humps.
Action taken: Problem failed to turn up during test drive. Have to test drive more.

5. Loud burst sound from air-cond compression when activated.
Action taken: Suspect magnetic clutch issue. Investigate

6. Soft-voice over bluetooth calls on phone during high speed where engine and road noise are intruding.
Action taken: P2 will consult supplier Betamek

7. Acceleration pedal spring came off.
Action taken: Inspection and repair

8. Rear brake noise
Action taken: Countermeasures are available.

9. Rust issue near battery in engine compartment
Action taken: Minor touch-ups

10. Check spare tyre holding cage for signs of weakness/buckle.
Action taken: Tightening. P2 CRD confirms there are at least 10 reports of self-ejecting tyres.

11. Gap near quarter window where rainwater may seep in and causes rust inside door panel.
Action taken: Change entire quarter window (for the 3rd time)

12. Weird paper-like noise inside main air-cond blower.
Action taken: Dismantle dashboard to investigate ph34r.gif

13. Noisy engine above 110kph
Action taken: No remedies, SA suggests buying their solution to insulate firewall. This is a far cry from what some people in this forum claimed that it can be remedied for free.

14. Steering vibration issue on uneven roads
Action taken: None. SA claims its normal, and they don't have such thing as Orifice... doh.gif



How long will my piece of junk stuck in SC...? no idea... rclxub.gif

darknight6070, read through the entire post, you will realize only Eithanius has major problems with his car, the majority of us are quite happy with it.

Mine's been going good for almost 1 year now, wife drives it to work everyday. Don't expect continental feel but it's reliable and spare parts are cheap and available.

Please drive your wife's car for a year, then only comment that mine has major problems... For all you know, you wife may only know how to drive the car without noticing anything when in fact something may be brewing inside...

Eithanius, looks like mine too has mostly the fact you mention, but it makes me loving it more

QUOTE
1. Cabin light not always turned on when car doors are opened
Mine is the same, door ajar sensor not working after some period of use. Each door has independent sensor. Make sure you test them all. Can easily replace FOC in P2.

2. Rattling sound of loose parts on B-pillars.
Mine D pillar got sound, I tried many solutions then finally I bend the safety belt metal slightly, the sound is gone. B pillar is easy to dimantle, try DIY.

3. Brake and acceleration pedals vibrate when wiper is running or when there's external loud noise.
This sounds damn funny, mine is the same, but I don't care tongue.gif

4. Front suspension noise when going over road humps.
Mine too, after that found out it was the protective gaiter made the sound. So i don't care , maybe your case different tongue.gif

5. Loud burst sound from air-cond compression when activated.
I thought all Alza has the same shit like this? tongue.gif

6. Soft-voice over bluetooth calls on phone during high speed where engine and road noise are intruding.
I fed up with the bluetooth, our cabin is just too noisy to make it works, unless we stop at traffic lights

7. Acceleration pedal spring came off.
Calm down.. This isn't ferrari tongue.gif

8. Rear brake noise
Just ask the foreman clean the drum brake

9. Rust issue near battery in engine compartment
The yokohama shit water leaking, I already change to Maintenance Free battery

10. Check spare tyre holding cage for signs of weakness/buckle.
I hope mine is fine on this.. never really inspect that before

11. Gap near quarter window where rainwater may seep in and causes rust inside door panel.
Mine too, but my door is not rusted.. I thought myvi or other car also same? That's their so called drainage system..

12. Weird paper-like noise inside main air-cond blower.
I used to hear that, after that found out is the air con fin wrong position.. Readjust the fin then ok..

13. Noisy engine above 110kph
No.. I just haven't try to firewall solution this yet... tongue.gif but if I pump BHP Ron95 the engine won't be so noisy..

14. Steering vibration issue on uneven roads
My Orifice haven't come yet! That's a long wait..

Personally I'd like those to be fix permanently. This is the second time I bug them about it.

2. Rattling sound of loose parts on B-pillars.
Mine D pillar got sound, I tried many solutions then finally I bend the safety belt metal slightly, the sound is gone. B pillar is easy to dimantle, try DIY.
I've insulated all pillars with Insulflex previously to prevent the plastic from rubbing to the metal, hence the sound, but B-pillars are from another problem.

3. Brake and acceleration pedals vibrate when wiper is running or when there's external loud noise.
This sounds damn funny, mine is the same, but I don't care
I don't like it. It gives the feeling that the whole damn pedal can tercabut anytime... That may also explains problem 7 where the spring came off. Rattled until it came off...?

4. Front suspension noise when going over road humps.
Mine too, after that found out it was the protective gaiter made the sound. So i don't care , maybe your case different
Second occurrence... I want the same - to be fixed permanently.

5. Loud burst sound from air-cond compression when activated.
I thought all Alza has the same shit like this?
Heard of Russian-mafia style execution when you start your car, the car explodes...? This is something like that...

6. Soft-voice over bluetooth calls on phone during high speed where engine and road noise are intruding.
I fed up with the bluetooth, our cabin is just too noisy to make it works, unless we stop at traffic lights
No comment. Perodua is lousy with insulation...

7. Acceleration pedal spring came off.
Calm down.. This isn't ferrari
It's not about ferrari. It's about safety...

8. Rear brake noise
Just ask the foreman clean the drum brake
Foreman was puzzled why this problem only occurred now when it should have been many months ago... rclxub.gif I don't even know how to reply him.

9. Rust issue near battery in engine compartment
The yokohama shit water leaking, I already change to Maintenance Free battery.
The problem is, my battery just don't wanna die... tongue.gif

10. Check spare tyre holding cage for signs of weakness/buckle.
I hope mine is fine on this.. never really inspect that before
You better go check before you become the next n8210... whistling.gif

11. Gap near quarter window where rainwater may seep in and causes rust inside door panel.
Mine too, but my door is not rusted.. I thought myvi or other car also same? That's their so called drainage system..
I've checked my other MyVi, none has it. My Kembara has that wind problem, but since it's no longer with me, I can't vouch for that.

12. Weird paper-like noise inside main air-cond blower.
I used to hear that, after that found out is the air con fin wrong position.. Readjust the fin then ok..
It comes and goes...

13. Noisy engine above 110kph
No.. I just haven't try to firewall solution this yet...  but if I pump BHP Ron95 the engine won't be so noisy..
BHP and Esso no difference to me, the engine is plain harsh noisy. And they still wanna sell me that damn add-on instead of offering as a countermeasure. I've even asked them if they have better engine oil, I don't mind paying more. Firstly, they don't have, secondly they do not allow outside engine oil without voiding that damn warranty. Perodua means no choice.

14. Steering vibration issue on uneven roads
My Orifice haven't come yet! That's a long wait..
I guess you're dealing with Perodua Authorised Service Dealer and not Perodua itself...? They don't even know shit of what they're dealing with here and say it's NORMAL to vibrate that way.
