The best alternative motoring in Malaysia
The bolt of the the stabilizer bar went missing. Got it replaced for RM10.00.
There is thumping sound whenever I hit a speed bump. Most probably the front absorber needs to be replaced.
GENERAL: I just love the car. The solid feel when you close the doors. The electric mirror adjustor. The solid bumper which can withstand a 10km/h impact (experienced this).
ECONOMY: Very economical on long distance drives. About RM5.00/100km.
Servicing is cheap. About RM180.00/10,000km. You get fully synthetic engine oil and original air/oil filters.
Fuel filter needs to be changed every 40,000km. Timing/alternator/air-conditioning/power steering Belts every 60,000km. These are cheaper than Proton parts.
HANDLING & COMFORT: Believe it or not, this is one of the best handling cars I ever driven. It is very stable at high speed. You can take a 45 degree corner without lifting off the accelerator (at 90km/h).
The seats are quite nice and firm. My family members do not complain of back ache even after a 500km drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
