2004 Proton Gen-2 1.6 from Australia and New Zealand
Brilliant. I'd buy another Proton
So far, this car has been brilliant.
I can't say that anything mechanical has gone wrong.
It gives the appearance and feel of a reliable, solid vehicle.
Although I have only had the car a short while, it would seem to be the most comfortable car that I have come across recently.
The seats, especially the front passenger side, are extremely comfortable, with ample leg room - even for the tallest of passengers. The absence of a glove-box in the front passenger side is added room, without losing any significant storage space.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Still early to conclude;a lot of things to share especially what happen in Malaysia. Proton must have good quality control for national and international market.

Don't jump into conclusion too fast. Test the Gen2 for a year until you reach 50k km (Warranty expired). Then come back with comments. Anything new, most of the time is good.
