Review of "Perodua Nippa"
This is .....or should i say was the cheapest car on the road at the end of the 90's and up to 2002.
It ceased production in 2002, and was replaced by a new perodua model.
All nippas are 5 door, 3door models are not an option, this is good consodering it was cheapest new car on road at little over £5500!! There is only 2 specs in the nippas range EX and GX
GX is bout £800 more, but hell you get a lot more, the GX boasts, Sunroof, Radio casttee, alarm, metalic paint, plush wheel trims, as the Ex is as basic as well basic! But Gx is probably just as well equiped as its rivels, and probably has as much as a base model fiat.
Well at £5500 apx new, 2nd hand prices are not expensive
here is a rough guide
98S - £1050- £1500
99T/V - £1300 - £1600
00W/X- £1950 - £2150
01/Y - £2200 - £2750
02/ 51 - £3000 -£3850
Dont pay over the odds, they are a very cheap car! Great if you want a newish car on little money!Competition
Other cars thet you could think about when considering a Nippa, are Cinqicento's, older fiesta, base model micra, but the be honest if all you want is reliablity and value the nippas is super. However if you want a bit of style and image, maybe a second hand Micra or fiesta might be a better option!Image
WHAT? IMAGE MY ARSE!
this car carrys very little image if any!
"WHATS THAT SOME KINDA OF BITING FISH FROM CHINA!"
Typical reply when you ask someone if they know of the nippa!
However inrecent years they hav become more popular, the chances are someone has one in your area! But they have been around 6 years now! Image is better than a Lada, but not as good as a ford or Fiat
Image probably on the lines of proton!
DESIGN - ORIGINS
Its based on an old Daihatsu car called the DOMINO, which was out in the 80's. The domino was more or less the same, but slightly squarer.
Daihatsu who have a fairly large chunk of the market world wide, being very popular in the far east and japan. There is also quite a few on the road in the UK. Well Daihatsu own 25% of perodua. So basically you are buying a reworked Daihatsi, which are good cars, have a strong repertation for strong steady going cars like the Foretrack and Charade. Another good point in peroduas favour!!
DEALERS AND AFTER CARE
The GX model which is what this review is on, is fairly nice! well as nice as basic is! The paint work is metalic, and the silver and purple look quite snazzy really! Ok there not beautiful, but for £5500 apx new- what do you expect? your ahrdly buying a £10,000 PUG here!
Not bad for what it is!
The old saying comes to mind
"You get what you paid for".
YEAH, as far as i know, they are pretty reliable, after all what is there to go wrong? Its a safe bet
Even though if does not have image it has a reliable garantee! perodua carry a reliabllity repurtation, which they have built up.
Overall, not a bad car, worth £2000 for a school runner! bye, hope this was handy and useful!!One last thing to say...................CHEAP, BASIC, BUT ITS A GOOD MOTOR!
