Better dump your Tiara into longkang or river near by. Or, put your car into a museum.

I have a Proton Tiara which I bought in 1999. I only have a problem with the aircon after I year I bought it. So, far it only gave me minor problem only e.g. battery. So far I am satisfied with the car. The seat is very comfortable and it's the best car to snooke around when there's traffic jam in KL e.g. going to Bukit Bintang, Petaling Street and along Jalan TAR. Now the car is 7 years old. Can anyone let me know where to get the Carburetor for Proton Tiara.

Your comments are quite inappropriate. Proton Tiaras have a bad rap because many of their owners don't know how to care for them. As with many 'un-qualified mechanics' who simply dismiss the car as a poorly-designed car from Proton. Which brings to mind why they are such mechanics and not 'auto engineers'!
Malaysian drivers are generally a Japan-centric lot about cars. They fail to see that Proton tried to offer an alternative to Japanese clones like the Viva or MyVi. But the driving pleasure or spirit of driving the latter Perodua offerings are non-existent compared to driving Proton models like the Tiara or Savvy. Look, I am sure many Malaysians want to drive Peugeots, Renaults, Fiats or baby VWs. But the price is prohibitive on the average Malaysian Joe. That said, Proton should continue on the same track, building cheaper compacts sourced from the France or Italy, plus concentrate on improving build quality and after sales service.
That done, Proton will have no problems gaining more buyers for its compacts.

I could not agree more. I am still driving one. Bought it in pretty bad shape, but repaired it until it is quite good. Will cruise on highways at 120 kph with ease. Fantastic handling on winding roads. Great value to have a Citroen on the cheap. BTW, Citroen make rally champions.
