Sure opp party.Those condemn proton there mostly heard from horses mouth pass hand by hand.Now Honda Accord also one of the worse car ever built also.The ones condemm usually drive Thailand Vios,Malaysia made Accords etc.

 

My mother in law use Wira/Waja for nearly 9 years without having the needs for overhaul.Wear n tear is normal.My uncle drive SG Gen2 1.6 for nearly 7 years also nvr even overhaul leh..Noisy?If ur engine is 4 years above and you're light footed sure got some noise mah.Campro IAFM idling is almost like diesel mah

 

 

i guessed he was refer to when the air-con kick in ma :)

Yup, agree. Nowadays it is very uncertain. Want to buy a sell car. The equation : Can sell car but might not be able to buy a new one because of high COE.

 

Test drive the Exora Bold CFE :D - Wow! awesome cannot even feel the gear change.

Ya. The CVT gearbox has a very smooth shift. Just make sure that only CVT fluid and not ATF fluid goes in the gearbox otherwise good luck!

But it's not as reliable as the conventional ATF gearbox.

 

Just got my car jack replacement from the proton agent after receiving a call from them.One to one replacement. The advisor from the fiat workshop very nice & helpful but the workshop setup & area space is rather disappointing. Such a vast difference from the proton edar standard in Msia.

 

Even if I would consider getting the "BOLD" . Will think twice about sending the car there for service during warranty.

Just went for my 30K servicing at TTS, service is quite good spent around $150 and got my car jack replaced. The new EXORA BOLD looks fierce and it comes with the cruise control and DVD player [bigcry]

This morning went to proton showroom at UBI......saw identical 2 units of proton bold.....which one is actually a facelift of M Line....comes with Bold bodyshell...Bold smoke tailights and now DVD player and reverse camera come as stock selling at $108K

 

As for Bold.....leather seats....leather wrap steering...reverse cam...dvd player...rear disc brake bodykit all factory fitted....selling at $115k.

 

I was told by the SE that COE quota will be reduce further on August...that means COE will not drop and will remain around 70+ for Cat A [rifle]

 

Test drove the Exora Bold yesterday and this is my FR

very smooth gear change...u can't feel the gear change at all...all this bcos of the CVVT engine....pick up wise is slightly better than my 1.6 manual matrix....

when u press the "sport" button u can feel the ride more power....

after cat A coe drop....they selling at 109k.

the only freebeis the SE offer me is tinted film

at the moment they are offering free GPS with bult-in car video recorder.

 

the downside is the cockpit....

I believe proton can do better....go away with the knob kinda a/c controller with button type....

use a better plastic.....

 

overall my rate is 8/10 :)

Saw a Malaysian registered Preve ytd around my house. Haha.

 

Not too bad a looker, and it sure does have good road presence!! If it drives well, it may be a good contender to the Chevy Cruze and Hyundai Elantra!!!

Larkin is nearer to Plentong. But both full of cars certain days. Best to arrive in the morning before 10.00. No need to make appointment though not sure about Plentong. I think Plentong got shopping mall but not Larkin.

 

For 20k servicing, should be a breeze.
