I had owned a Myvi before. Good to be used within city centre and around villages when the drive is slow.

However I feel insecure on the highway.

1. The braking distance is far
2. It is easily swayed by the air pressure caused by overtaking vehicles
3. The steering wobbles during braking
4. The back brakes failed to work and my mechanic could not determine what is the cause.
5. The sound insulation is bad
6. The suspension system is flimsy.

1. can change brake disc and calipers
2. can lower the car for better aero profile
3. can change shock absober.
4. no one use rear brakes anyway.
5. can add insulation
6. can chance suspension

All these will violate warranty?

After market sales items cost is really expensive.

Even tank is not safe when hit by lorry.  biggrin.gif

Looks like people think that Jazz or Hyundai i10 is safer than MyVi  laugh.gif

An article in 2018 mentioned that for the frontal impact test, the Myvi scored higher marks than even Honda CR-V.  blink.gif

What about rear impact test?

Are the back passengers safe?

160000km, and the Myvi i am driving is still on its first set of dampers. You think the other 99% Myvi owners would change it if physically it did not show leak or exhibit extreme bouncing on road undulations?

Is your absorbers in good condition?

How old is your car?

I've experienced this. On wet road, i run over a speed bump at around 30kmh-50kmh. After that, my brake become loose, need to press deep to function normally. I really thought my brake kaput already. Once arrived at home, it tried press brake repeatedly several times and my brake suddenly become normal again.

I HAD THE EXACT SAME ISSUE WITH MYVI 2014, did u guys repaired it ? what part is malfunctioning ?

It happened a few years ago. I send to the workshop, which swapped a used one with mine but it didn't solve the problem. So I reinstalled my brakes.

I was determined to know why, drove to a deserted road, speed up to 50km/h and braked hard till feel the ABS pumping. After few times, I was confident the brakes were fine.
