A good car. Should improve on the durability of its fittings
Power window mechanism failed after 2 years on the driver's side.
Reverse sensor failed after 2 years; had it replaced.
Brake pump started leaking after 130,000km; replaced for a whopping RM380.
Brake disc rotors; all 4 replaced after 80,000, charged 200 per disc by the thieving Proton service center, then after another 60,000km was asked to replace the front 2 disc rotors; this time RM235 per piece.
Replaced radiator after developed overheating problems in 166.000km. Also replaced thermostat, temperature sensor, and both radiator and condenser motors. All in cost was about RM800. Was done with a mechanic near my home; Proton would have charged a bomb, as they seem to have the blessing of the authorities to rip off the Malaysian Public.
Generally this is a very reliable car, other than the problems mentioned above, and is a pleasant and stable car to drive.
It has covered many Km in relation to its age, just touched 5 years about 1 month ago.
Parts cost should be made cheaper, shame on you Proton.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
