2004 Proton Saga LMST 1.3 Magma from Malaysia
Economically priced car for the average driver
Windscreen wipers are noisy. My mechanic diagnose the problem as a faulty wiper arm. Unfortunately the situation has yet to be remedied. It presses the wipers at a weird angle (seriously, just visually observing them you'll notice that both aren't following the same angle) thus wearing out replacement wipers in a short time.
My left rear door doesn't appear to be properly installed. Most of my passengers sitting on that particular side often thought that the door is stuck.
Decent power for its class.
It's a 4 seater though it's a bit snug, but I'm 6" 2, so that may be the reason.
Fuel consumption is comparable to the Japanese marques.
No frills design makes for a minimalistic driving experience.
Ample boot space and the back seat is collapsible.
Spare parts readily available. In Malaysia, at least.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
