‘No recall is being made for Myvi,” says Perodua

Perodua this evening issued a statement to clarify that there is no recall for the its Myvi model or any other model produced by the company. The statement was in response to an article in The Malaysian Reserve titled: “New Perodua Myvi May be Recalled” which was published on its front page on August 29, 2013. 

According to Perodua’s President & CEO, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh, the reason for the recall given in the report, ie that the company had stopped production for 3 days, was inaccurate. 

“There was a suspension in operations for one day at our plant on August 26, 2013 as we found some portion of the vehicle that did not meet the standards we specified during our normal testing process. But we resumed our operations on Tuesday after successfully rectifying the issue,” he explained.

He also pointed out that the Perodua manufacturing plant was on a scheduled shut-down for the company’s 20th Anniversary Gala Raya Celebrations over that weekend. 

“We apologize to our customers if this suspension resulted in a slight delay in delivering the vehicle but the action we take is to ensure that your experience with us is a pleasant one – because here At Perodua – You Matter Most. Perodua places great value on quality and even more so on safety in everything that we do,” said Datuk Aminar.
