1995 Proton Persona SEi 1.6
A lot of car for little money
Speedo not accurate, but I use GPS when near gatsos.
Hot air blowers work great, all except for the windscreen demist. Hopefully its just a pipe come adrift.
The car is much faster than I imagined, especially with its age. Pick up from 15 to 45 is very good.
Have had two instances of front end skips, which were alarming. Not a car I would push too far on a bend.
Interior is functional, but a bit boring, but all the toys are there - power steering, electric windows all round, powered wing mirrors - not bad for 750.
I brought the car as a daily drive, and to tow my little caravan. I chose it mainly as it was the only one in the dealers with a twin electric tow bar fitted, which saved me 150 quid, but now I would buy another.
My real love is my 73 VW Campe. This car was just meant to be a workhorse, but it has now become a friend.
Also all the gadgets are welcome change from my 16 valve camper (8 are in the radio).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
