1992 Proton Saga GLX 1.5 petrol

Summary:

Good cheap car, but don't think would be too good at higher mileages

Faults:

Nothing, but replaced most things like spark plugs and full service, because it has had one previous owner, and had been sitting for most of its life.

General Comments:

Pretty good car. Am actually happy with it. You can tell it is an old Mitsy with the interior etc, and was built to a price, but quite comfy, not a handler, and not bad amount of power. I do miss my upper end power that my old Honda had.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I am the original reviewer, and have encountered some electrical problems since I purchased the car, such as central locking window jamming down and the other electric one falling down.

I seem to get less mileage per tank each week; the best I have had is 482km on a tank. My old Honda got 55 km plus.

The proton has given some starting issues every now and then. Great fun when I was stopped at a police breath test and failed to start again. Despite taking my car to my mechanic, they cannot find out why it is doing this. Have just had a full service and tune up, so hopefully this may fix it.

I have now accomplished 48200km in the Proton and am not enjoying it. If this vehicle continues to give problems, I will sell it and buy another Honda, cos they are brilliant.
