As children growing up, chances are we have witnessed how our parents are willing to go above and beyond to ensure that we are able to enjoy safe, fulfilling and comfortable lives. And in return as adults, we aspire to be able to return the gesture in kind as a sign of filial piety. Which is exactly what one man endeavored to accomplish by making one crucial modification in his Perodua Myvi.

M’sian spends thousands to install motorised chair in his Myvi for his elderly father

In a video that was uploaded by TikTok user @mohdirwanshah46, also known as Mr Mohd Irwan Shah, he shares how he had recently installed a brand-new custom mobility chair to replace the front passenger seat of his Perodua Myvi. The customisation, which costed between RM2,500 to RM3,000, was made specifically to allow Irwan’s elderly father ease of access into the compact car.

Demonstrating its use, he shows how the chair would swing out slowly from within its mount from the front passenger side of the Myvi, providing plenty of room for his father to climb on-board from his wheelchair. Once safely seated, the motorised chair would then lift his father into the car again.

Such mobility chairs aren’t uncommon in places like Japan, where the first-generation Perodua Myvi’s sister car, the Daihatsu Boon, was initially introduced. In some cases, they are installed by the manufacturer and introduced as a separate trim level, like the Toyota Alphard Welcab.

Netizens commend him for being a filial son

His video, which has since gone viral, has garnered plenty of praise from netizens, many who commended him for going to such lengths to ensure the comfort of his elderly father.

“Salute to people who modify their cars like this. Other people modify their cars to look smart, lowered, or fast. This brother modified his car for the convenience of his elderly father.”

“I’ve been considering to do the same modification. I am a Grab driver, and sometimes I drive disabled passengers too. It’s such a pity to see them struggle to get into the car. Hopefully I’ll be able to do it soon.”

“As long as you are still able to show your parents gratitude, do it as often as you can. If they’re gone, you’ll feel the emptiness than only those who have experienced it first-hand will know.”

“Allahuakbar, I’m reminded of my late-father who I used to always bring out on road trips by the sea, to zoos. He’d love it so much. Now that he’s not around anymore, I can only bring my mum.”
