In this blog entry, I'm updating my family's ride. This is the 18th month we owned the MYVI 1.5SE+.  This is the 10th month since My sister took over the MYVI 1.5SE. She even called this car "BUMBLEBEE". 

THIS IS THE LAST UPDATE OR FINALE report of this MYVI Bumblebee.  Mileage of the car's now 22,000+ km.  Averaged 2000km per month clocked!  

Recently, over the past 2 months, the MYVI SE been to the service centre twice. 

 1 for 20,000km oil change (very cheap: below RM250 only).  It's a good thing that Perodua opted for Synthetic oil and 10,000km service interval.  Unlike Honda and Proton which still stick to 5,000km service interval. 

 The 2nd trip to service centre was for "PRODUCT RECALL".  Perodua Recall all their MYVI 1.5 SE - 20,000 units affected.  So my Bro-in-law, Bryan took the MYVI to update the "Electric Power Steering". 

I'm sad to say that there's a SERIOUS "Setback" preventing me to cover this car in the future.  Since September 23 onwards, my sister moved to Klang to stayed with her husband.  She'll tag this Bumblebee along.  But this is a blessing in disguise, as the Bumblebee gets to EXERCISED daily to and fro from BUKIT TINGGI, Klang to Damansara Uptown, then to PJ Old town  Yup, isn't it sweet, the newly weds carpooled to work?

This means that I'll STOP updating this LONGTERMER, Myvi 1.5SE NOW.  THIS IS THE GRAND FINAL UPDATE!   So it ENDS at VOLUME 6.  Sad but true...
