All New Myvi models made between March 2011 and March 2012 have been requested to return back to their makers to fix an issue with its Electronic Power Steering (EPS).
The problem is a heavy steering at low speeds of just 30-40km/h, as well as the EPS indicator switching on.
Perodua’s quick fix for New Myvi owners is to switch on and off the engine and to restart the car. This is said to eliminate the problem momentarily, while a trip back to Perodua to complete the fix remains necessary.
Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh, Managing Director of Perodua said that all costs for the replacement of the EPS column will be absorbed by Perodua, and that the campaign time free is open ended.
“We apologise for the inconvenience caused to our customers but this campaign is necessary as the car’s performance may not be at its best and could partially compromise the driver’s response time at low speeds.
“The campaign time frame is open ended; that being said we encourage our customers to make their appointments as soon as it is convenient for them to ensure that the replacement can be done orderly and smoothly”.
