2005 Proton Waja 1.6 from Malaysia
Nothing went wrong with the car.
Love the handling. Lotus did a good job in tuning the suspension. Stiffest chassis in its class also did the trick.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

After read few comments from 2005 to 2006 model, I have found out Waja has improved. My 2003 model may not be as good as recent model, but I guess problem rectification has been improved. I heard other proton models was rectified it's problem in less than a year.
Good engine, but need to keep up with the quality.

Proton Waja has improved. The car is reliable. Persistence schedule maintenance will make the car longer last. I have encountered no problem in the engine and transmission. A correct fluid type will protect these parts.

My 2005 WAJA has been a very good car for my family and I. It has enough acceleration to merge well with traffic. The seating accommodations are comfortable for all five of us. This is a good looking car. The Goodyear Eagle tires are a good fit for the handling and performance of this car. I've enjoyed the vehicle. It has served me well.

Of course there are big differences between Toyota Vios 1.5G and Proton Waja AT 1.6 (with airbag and ABS). In comparison of prices between these two types of car, you will notice that the different is over RM 20 K. That is a lot of money. No wonder Proton Waja used cheap materials for the interior.

I bought Waja because of it's specifications and handling suits my needs.
For me, although it is a cheap plastics, as long as it is safe enough to protect driver and passengers is sufficient enough.
I have a friend who upgrade the plastic not by covering it with leather, but spray it. I was surprised it looks upmarket.

I'm Fathy Fikry from Alexandria, EGYPT, I got my new Auto-WAJA one month later and I'm really proud of it.
Good price, Excellent Technologically advanced & smooth handling, please do not believe any lies about WAJA unless you test it.
You can compare its tech. with many famous cars, but you cannot compare its good price, well it was the best price for me.
