2002 Proton Perdana perdana v6 6A12TT from Malaysia
Very good super saloon
The car so far has been serving me as a very good servant. There are no problems at all with the car. Except that the front seats are not very comfortable for long distance driving or when stuck in jam. The leather used to cover the seats seemed to expand. There was no problem with the suspension accept that it has to be changed to a better suspension like TEIN with better spring for better traction and stability.
The Perdana V6 is indeed a very good car in it's class. Its worth it to pay 100k for this 2.0 litre car. It's a smooth car with quite a good handling at almost every cornering. However interior needs 'redecoration' especially on the dashboard and seats.
My dear friends, don't buy a Perdana V6 if you have lots of cash. If its possible, please stop with the grumblings and complains by comparing a Perdana V6 with a BMW X5 or any other continental cars as there is a big gap between the price of these cars. Thank you.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

May I know which model of TEIN absorbers you bought for your PV6? And which springs you compliment it with for street performance. Thank you.

I used to drive a 2003 Proton Perdana V6 and found it to be a good car until I met a friend who offered me to test drive his 2000 BMW 523i. I became envious of his car although the BMW seems to be slightly less roomy than my Perdana. Then I met my former boss who showed me his Mercedes E270 CDI when we were in Genting with our families. Within 5 months, I bought an avantgarde Mercedes E270 CDI. I am very happy with my choice still. Mind you, the Proton Perdana isn't a bad car though, just in a different class altogether.
