The last batch enhanced 3 PV6 is dirt cheap these days. Many units to be found in the 10k or lower price range. Thinking of getting one. Is it worth buying? Especially if it's manual, shouldn't be problematic right?

if you have the extra money, it is worth buying as in it is a powerful engine .
not in fuel consumption and you will not earn anything as time passes.

Was actually looking at the V6 ones, already converted to manual. But there are also tons of 4G63T & 6A12TT ones for sale. Most of them are scrapped for parts. So highly tempting

But turbos are gonna need lots of fixing and maintenance. Even the newest E3s are 24 yrs old dy

maintenance wise it is on the high side due to V6. and do remember that this car got issue with GB. other than that, it is comfortable with average handling

Expensive in terms of timing belt and plug change right?

Any other parts prone to have problems? Lower arms or something right?

Yup it's turbo era once again..but was referring to those relatively ancient turbo engines slotted into perdanas. Must be full of issues by now

workmanship when working on the car generally mahal. mau change plugs also blardy manifold has to come off. trouble shooting is no fun.

suspension itself isn't prone to issues but keep in mind. 1) its an old car 2) its got a multilink suspension all round. see what i'm getting at?

you should ask yourself first, how much are you willing to put into it.

In your opinion, old school turbo vs modern turbo, which is easier & cheaper to maintain ?

NA engines seems lesser in performance cars nowadays.

Modern turbo is more expensive to fix due to direct injectors compare to old type mostly port injectors.
Old turbo system more simpler & easier to fix but fuel consumption higher.
Both got their pro & con, if purely performance old type got more potential as fuel injectors can be upgraded easily compare to direct injectors.

Thanks for the info sir. Just spoke to my mech, he says it's quite alright to buy at that price. For below 10k not much to complain as the money saved can be used for changing the wear and tear parts and make it driveable on a daily basis. A 10 year old Myvi costs RM14K to RM15K, whereas a similar aged PV6 cost slightly over half of that these days. If able to find a rather well maintained one, it will be a steal. The parts aren't too expensive or hard to source either.

Perdana well known to minum petrol a lot more than other 2.0cc cars. if you can live with paying extra for petrol all the time, then go for it.

Yes..indeed. its due to v6 engine. But u get very very smooth buttery engine.

I see quite a lot v6 last gen on the road, but majority drive slow. Might be due cannot tahan wo with fuel consumption. Lol.

Not sure if can draw comparison - I drove the a32 cefiro v6..year 99, which I bought around 2013. Been driving it local and outstation without much problem, consider daily drive already but still work very well for me. Not sure of any difference between Cefiro and Perdana but V6 engine didn't give me much problem. Its a relative docile engine, with linear pick up, its a smooth operator - just don't expect scorching pick up. Power will come if you step on it.

I torture the car for 6 years and sold it end of 2018, its a good servant for me without throwing a fuss. My 3rd Nissan car and they don't give me major problem at all...fuel its on the high side, but if you have driven D segment before, its +/- not extraordinary. Having said this, the fuel meter can drop like pin if I really floor it and for its size, its a runaway train. Mine a 2.0 lugging 1.5 tons of steel, its underpower but as a cruiser, it serves the purpose.

parts are all ok.... but ill just say this, almost all the 6a12 owners i know, have swapped them out for 4g's.... some for power others cause of the maintenance when they are old. As i said earlier, its very very difficult to troubleshoot when it comes to this mitsu v6

Aren't the 4Gs equally old? The turbos are mostly landmines by now unless willing to spend money to change the parts that are bound to leak or fail. The NA 4G63 isn't all that appealing apart from better engine bay access for repair works

I thought about a pv6 too as it was my childhood dream car. Test drove one. Then decided not to. Wont have time to fix it. I do see many owners trying their best to get a better price. even at 6k i did not take the car. But nevertheless a beautiful driving machine

Thanks for sharing. Guess maybe the Perdanas are not as well built or reliable as the Nissans judging from the comments

ask me about perdana, i own 2 perdana.

1 was a V6,
another was a 4G63T

V6 is good, smooth like a cake.
4G, was fun but higher maintenance than V6.

my 4G is already 22 years old

almost straight through 63t, admittedly the ppl i know are kaki lenjan so thats the go to option. v6tt, errrr well lets just say they also went 63 later on (but high speed cruising on highways, the v6s were definitely nicer)

they tend to rebuild them. compared to overhauling the v6, its not horribly expensive. The few of my friends that kept stock 63's actually seem to be okay actually. All you need is some luck and a good mech. Replace the typical failing parts at this age and they were good to go... also, join the evo groups, you will find stock bits are easy to find and not that exp. stock turbos are everywhere and cheap

Yeah.. still holding to it.

Wanted to sell but can't bear to do so..
Too much love, time, money on it


V6 is a much easier engine, hardly any issue with the car.

But 4g, also OK. Easy to find parts, affordable.
Repair are mainly wear and tear.. like my dead alternator..

Hmm those RVR or Evos are also tempting. Also quite a number going below 10k with fair amount of stuff installed ie coilovers, upgraded brakes and cosmetic stuff. Pretty tempting. Maybe budget 2k to 3k to refresh it would be just nice eh

It's ok still can buy if u change ur mind. My friend who's a mech says it's not too hard to maintain. He comes from Euro and conti background and is a big Alfa Romeo fan.. but maybe PV6 might not be a good only car to have unless got 2nd car to use

So far i have only seen 3 perdanas. Didnt know there was a manual variant. The one i drove was an auto transmission. I still remember it was powerful during that time and the driving experience was abit similar to Toyota camry except for the FC.

Front double wishbone suspension with independent rear suspension good for handling and comfort, why not?

The car worth less than 10k, 20k to spend for gearbox a bit too extreme no? Besides it's not that expensive anymore those gearboxes

ha. ya ya. last time government spent hunderds of k to repair the gearbox.

now the gearbox only rm2k in mudah



the reason to avoid the perdana is actually the lack of safety system.

Yup, airbag also tarak. But at least the body is quite rigid structurally unlike other Protons of that era

but its still of that era, not exactly what i would call kuat...

memang a comfortable car at high speeds, so long as u dont pandai pandai lower or install way stiffer suspension.

gearboxes dont torture, tambah atf cooler can last. Anyway im not mistaken these days its under 3k to have it redone. i think its about 2k for a refurb box?

ya memang don't plan to do much. make it fairly reliable and comfy enough. long distance cruiser for cheap

Eterna/ Galant bodies are stiffer right? I see some P owners even swap out the doors for JDM parts

Proton never offered the Perdana with a V6 and a manual.

They only offically offered a manual transmission with an inline 4 engine.

Personally, I rather get a CPS Gen2 or a CPS Waja rather than a Perdana V6 because Perdana may have ABS, but it does not have airbags.

Yes they never made manual ones. Was referring to converted ones

Don't fancy wajas or gen2. They're pricier also

tbh no opinions on the 2.0, i literally paid 0 attention to em.

the real vr4 i like... but parts are not very common and the turbos enjoy getting cooked.

was seriously considering transplanting this engine into my car, (mind you mines a 'terbalik') but none of the mechs i approached wanted to do it let alone touch it with a 10 foot long pole. they said the v6 is troublesome, now throw in 2 snails all that piping into the small enginebay and its the definition of hell.

Sounds like pure horror. Saw a few VR4 converts going below 30k. Best to steer clear despite how good the beast looks. No time to deal with head aches
