Hi there! I'm sure you're gonna get alot of BAD reviews because you know lah how Malaysians always have bad things to say about our national car. But like I mentioned in another thread last time, when other cars are not affordable, then you tend to complain less. Like me, I have experience with ALOT of proton cars and so far it's not bad at all. My dad used to work for EON also and he says because of the mass manufacturing, sometimes if you're lucky you get a really good batch. So we've been quite fortunate la so far.

I got a GEN2 high line version end of last year. Leather seats, cruise control and dual airbag. The car is very comfortable to be in. Easy to drive. But be careful of the backside cos hard to see when reversing and parking etc. So far I have had problems with the power window but that's been fixed. No other complaints about this car other then pick up is not as good as my other Satria 1.6 but that's probably because Satria is a lighter car. However, driving outstation is very comfortable as soon as the car reaches a certain RPM it just wants to go and go. However, driving in the city, petrol comsumption is quite high lah.

That's my honest opinion. I'm not sure what comes with the latest limited edition GEN2 1.6 but I think if you really like it, you should get it. There aren't very many affordable nice looking cars in the market these days. For some strange reason car manufacturers are making really strange looking things and calling them cars. The trend seems to be either very teeny tiny compact cars or what look like MPVs. I wish they'd make more normal looking cars..LOL! So all the best to you and if you like it, just get it lah. Cos if you listen to too many people, last last sure tak jadi one. It's the common Msian opinion that Proton sux, so expect bad reviews la. He he

Gen-2 looks ok but the interior too plastic for my liking, dunno about the engine and handling but i guess should be okie..kua.

Top Gear criticize Proton as if its dirt cheap and lousy and i think its not fair to Proton even though they can be much much better. Why dont Proton just change name to Lotus-Proton or something, should get more goodwill out of it.

I dunno why... it seems to me, people who said that it's a bad car, are those who doesn't owns one. I wonder how they judge that it's bad.

I've asked my friend who works at proton. He recommended me not to buy coz' the quality of the plastics used in the car isn't good. So, u'll end up with lots of rattling problems. Other than that, u'll have the usual proton power window + central locking problems.

He adviced me to get either the Neo or Waja.

Among all proton cars, i do agree waja , gen2 and neo would be best choice. Sawy ah? Hmm okay also if u dont mind the look. But i think this Sawy good in term of safety. Just my guess, havent seen much around her.

many of people already lost their trust with Proton... they just like a ex-prisoner right now..

even my friend bought Kenari & Myvi even within the budget they able to get a Gen2..
