2009 Proton Saga BLM 1.3 petrol from Malaysia
Front left wheel pulling to the left.
5th gear difficult to shift.
Reverse gear always makes a noise when engaging.
Vibration to the steering wheel, accelerator, gear lever.
First, had problems with alignment. Sent to service center. They used my spare tyre to replace the faulty front left tyre. Now I have a faulty spare tyre.
Second incident, 5th gear not smooth to engage. Sent to service center again, they told me it was normal, the design is such. Basically telling me to live with it.
Thirdly, vibration. From the steering wheel, gear lever, throttle. Sent to service center again... told me the same thing... design is such.
Can someone tell me what to do, as I think I've got a defective Proton in my hands. I want a replacement, better still, my money back. Never buy a Proton. In Australia, they are selling it for AUD11,990. The cheapest new car in Australia. It's called S16. 2 SRS airbags. 1.6 (M). How can Proton sell its car for so cheap in Australia and provide the best features, but in Malaysia, we get all the rejects for a much higher price. You get a better quality, cheaper Proton overseas than in your own country. What a rip off!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
