Summary:

Don't buy this car

Faults:

The back absorber is too soft and within a year the absorber making lousy noise.

Sound coming from the dashboard.

The part such as the rubber sealing of the door is in low quality especially rear door.

Still using radio player even for SE edition.

The quality inspection from the factory is not done by professional.

Even though already in the market about 13 year, but still same problem occur.

General Comments:

Price is too expensive for the low quality of the car.

Cheating people by launching SE edition, but no improvement.

After sales Service is low.

All the problems are same since day one proton produce the car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sounds pretty normal for a car this age.

Air cond not cool; wiper jumping on the windscreen while switching on since the first Wira I bought. Suspensions really very bad causing bad handling and near accident very often esp. rainy days. Never seems to improve since the very first day. Most probably consider Myvy, seldom hear any problem.
