2005 Proton Waja 1.6 AT from Malaysia
Getting the wrong car!
I own the Proton Waja 1.6 AT just for 3 weeks, but lots of problems to this vehicle. Now at 2000 km and the "N" lamp in the instrument panel flashes slowly (Once per second) with the 'D' range selected.
This cause the gear locked at 3rd drive range! I sent to Proton Edar to check about it, but they can't justified the right problems and keep changing this and that parts until now still haven settle the problems. The change alots of original parts, infact, technical people suspect the gearbox problem, but the head office refuse to change the whole gear box, but ask for overhaul only.
This is wasting me a lots of time for me to waiting them settle down the problem just because they need to send the technical report, try this and that, they told me that need around one months to settle the problem. Do you think it is logic? I don't think need take for so long if I send my car to the workshop. But, what to do, we can't void the warranty. But I hope the service centre should do somethings! We need to do the repayment to the bank, but the car is keep in service centre! What a stupid decision, do you see?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I own Waja 1.6 Auto Transmission (2002). Luckily I never get all the major problems. The only problems are the stupid Proton Standards Quality. (I think the reader understood). Anyhow, if you got some extra money. Please do not buy this car (proton). Even though we sent a lot of complaints and suggestions to Proton, but they are the same, stubborn and stupid. Hopefully after firing of Tengku Mahalel there will be some changes in Proton itself.
