Proton Persona : Like it or Love it?


I’ve heard many people congratulating Proton for finally listen to its customers. And here is my congratulation post for Proton for finally being able to produce a car that I’m proud of.

I just had my experience with the car in flesh at Perkampungan Hadhari in Kota Bharu yesterday. I really like the new refreshing color of Ribenaberries (Blueberry Tea). I’m glad that they chose that color for the exhibition. The fact that the color is being offered just to the top of the line models adds to its exclusiveness.

I heard people said Persona is just a Gen2 with boot. I thought the boot would only increase the trunk space just by a little, but I was surprised that when they said spacious, it’s really really space-ious. A great feature for family sedan.

Aside from improved overall quality, Persona also comes with affordable price. Just like what my auntie said, Persona is not just with its look, the price is also a persona (attraction). With 10% down payment, monthly payment for the top of the line model(yeah, the one with remote-controlled trunk) is just RM623. Not bad.

I regret that I didn’t bring my camera with me. If I did, this post would be full of pictures of me and the ribenaberries Persona.

More pictures and review at Paultan.

      sucks? …..hey you shouldn’t be in Malaysia…coz “pengkhianat bangsa and negara” never been proud of Malaysia brand…well now Malaysia brand will be the most of in the top.People talking about Malaysia,did you see in amsterdam people of their country is proud to learn our SILAT But why we should be proud with outsider brand?

    • #3 by amirul on March 7, 2009 - 6:31 pm

      everybody said that proton is cheap and affordable..actually proton ‘cekik darah’ malaysian…just think it…i dont mine about the quality if the price is acceptable even wthout excssive gov tax!!!

      • #4 by shameer on January 26, 2010 - 10:17 pm

        recently my car had a clutch problem..1 year and 7 month old persona baseline. Did it sound logic for a new car to have problem due to the way of the driver
        they said there is no waranty on tear and ware problem.. so i have to pay 650++ for new clutch plate..
        I’m proud of malaysian products but pls tell me is it my problem or proton have to take responsiblity on that

        • #5 by azham on June 25, 2010 - 3:56 pm

          hi shameer,

          regarding your clutch problem,

          are you using manual transmission?

          if it yes, did you put your foot on the clutch pedal when you re not changing a gear?

          if it yes, that proton guy are correct, the clutch wear bcoz by the way you drive.

          because, if the clutch pedal doesn’t release during you drive, although just placed your foot there, that action will effect the clutch, because the clutch will continuously had a friction although you just put on it. clutch that should be used 7-8 years will wear only in one year plus.

          if you doesn’t have that driving attitude, ignore my comment and proton have to take the responsibility regarding this issue.

        • #6 by shameer on June 29, 2010 - 12:03 pm

          thanks for the comment…i’ve been driving nearly 15 years..
          i even had a kancil as my second car…my driving is fine..
          only bonggok people driving with leg on the clutch.
          i’ve already sent my car to proton service centre.
          they solve my problem my adjusting the clutch…
          so do my driving or proton..

    • #7 by elyn on July 11, 2009 - 11:37 am

    ouch.. a total disrespect against my flattering post. haha joking. you can express your opinion anytime you want.

    I just hope this new model will change how people look at proton brand.

  3. #9 by Ash on August 29, 2007 - 4:01 pm

    Sigh..still in blur..Im looking forward to buy my first new car, but stil cannot make up my mind either Persona or Myvi..
    Im about to go for Persona, but all the -ve comments everywhere really make me wonder, does it a good car or not????help!

    • #10 by alia on January 12, 2009 - 8:25 pm

      in my opinion…proton now getting better than before..most our Malaysian people look down on ours national car.we should be proud of it because we have our own brand PROTON.We can see in Thailand,Singapore even in London they’re proud to drive our Malaysia car perhaps not our Malaysia citizen.They always think Malaysia car is worst and not standard.As we see,now a days our economy is totally down,we should support Malaysia brand and this will make our inflation goes down because our current money won’t be car CAMRY which is assemble in Thailand even there car is made from Japanese company.So,why we should proud with outsider brand rather than Malaysia.If we buy a Malaysian product we can save a billion dollar amount goes to outsider.

      • #11 by burn on June 7, 2009 - 10:21 pm

        hi..i think u better buy myvi lah.persona not that much good enough compared 2 myvi.myvi is a nice car.every 1 who using myvi so far giving a good comment about it.think wisely and plan..

        • #12 by just a comment on June 29, 2010 - 3:29 pm

          But i have try comparing persona and myvi performance by driving myvi and persona from penang to kl. i found that i spent rm55 on both persona and myvi for me to drive from penang to kl although the persona is 1.6 and myvi is just 1.3. tat’s for me prove actually myvi enginee is better than persona. everyone around me also tell me myvi is better. Yet, I have also found persona is actually more stable than myvi. Persona is more spacious than myvi too!! This offers me lots more comfort when i drive from penang to kl.

    An unbiased comment from me:

    But before i continue..
    For those who wish to test or judge the Malaysian made, please leave your crap head which says this Malaysian goods is crap. Be neutral or you might as well live in a cave where no one will judge you too.

    My Comment:
    Overall, the Proton Persona is very good indeed. The handling is never compromised as it is a breed of Mitsubishi n still uses some Mits parts. The interior quality is top notch considering the price and its range. The extra features such as the boot size, the folding rear seats (which is the flattest i have seen in my life!) and the keys are new and undefined by any other model in its range. If you noticed, you can open the boot lid by a push of a key button! Nice for a -RM 50k Car. The power window have a new improved design and new vendor thus should no longer cause any probs.
    Two Tumbs up for Proton Persona! A whole new Breed of Proton!

    • #14 by daus-law on March 9, 2009 - 7:48 pm

      the proton persona se is the best in its class..i dare to said so…
      compared to other-in range-valued i would say that proton’s quality team have done a great jobs..and based on the brand new saga BLM which i consider as a money-valued car..the quality now days for proton cars are acceptable..or say persona…with no doubt in mind is the best…go proton and go malaysia

  5. #15 by rudy on September 19, 2007 - 2:26 pm

    Hi, I’m going to buy a Persona soon. Previously, the Gen2 has a problem with Oil tank (not fuel tank, don’t be confused). What I heard from my brother, his friend’s Gen2 oil tank just not tough enough, when it got hit by hard object, mainly stone, it broke just like a thin can. Unlike older oil tank on older proton, it’s as tough as a army-tank metal. Do you people have any idea of any upgrades on Persona? plz, I really need opinion from u guys.

  6. #16 by tempo on October 28, 2007 - 3:33 pm

    The Persona looks nice specially the nice colours ,

    Actually I was looking to buy a Persona VS Honda City VS vios g spec,

    FInally I made up my mind and bought a Honda City Second hand cos I found it to be better specially cos of full spec and i was waiting for the feedbacks of persona,

    One positive thing is you get 5 years warranty or 175,000 km so no headache but think abt resale value ?

  7. #17 by Grabus on November 1, 2007 - 11:40 am

    I just got my Persona Hi-Line. Not a bad car for the price I paid. Some other makes in the similar vehicle segment (i.e. Vios, City, Latio) are priced approx. RM20K higher. It is beyond me why one would invest that amount of money for branding prestige. Proton seems to be trying hard to improve their battered image. This car (Persona) is a make or break case for them.

    Personally, I have found my new Persona to be a much better car than my trusty old Wira. The only gripe I have is the high boot which makes it impossible to have a good view of the rear especially when maneuvering in parking lots. Only time will tell ..whether or not this car is as good as Proton claims it would be. In anycase, I still have the 5-year warranty to fall back on.

    Well… to each his own.

    • #18 by alia on January 12, 2009 - 8:31 pm

      sounds great…I’m proud to have a Malaysian people like we know now a days Proton getting better than few years back..I also agreed with you the prices of vios,latio,myvi n etc are slightly the same.the difference is on the brand.That is…why we have to buy expensive car? because the value will goes down year by year compare to the property…any one agree?

      • #19 by Elvin on July 15, 2009 - 12:02 am

        Alia, i’m agree with you…. but i have some info to share with you…. i support national car & will buy Persona soon… but did you know??? Honda city & Toyota vios is same price with persona in other country… yeah… cry it out… my brother buy honda city at thailand for 48,000… For your information Honda, Toyota & other western car is not expensive at all… our lovely goverment juz make them exspensive… so don’t say they are expensive if u know nothing… hav wonderful day.. =)

  8. #20 by Irwan on November 1, 2007 - 12:02 pm

    congratz on your new car… I hope you get great experience with it.

  9. #21 by rudy on November 1, 2007 - 10:50 pm

    guys, how long is the delivery for M-Line? Particularly for Tranquility Black colour…please tell me if anyone of u know…thank you veryy much!

    • #22 by alia on January 12, 2009 - 8:27 pm

      dear Rudy…

      could u send me ur email and contact number? i’ll help you regarding about this matter

  10. #23 by Ash on November 2, 2007 - 9:24 am

    Hello Grabus,
    Congratulations for getting your new Persona H-Line then. One question, how is the engine performance?
    -I read somewhere on line that people made comments about the low pickup of the engine (auto transmission). When you press the pedal, the car isnt moving yet for a moment, but suddenly then it moves. Which makes it’s difficult to estimate or overtaking. Is that what you also experincing with your H-Line Persona?
    Hope to get you honest comments. Thank you dudes here!;)

  11. #24 by HLOwner on December 27, 2007 - 3:42 pm

    Dudes, I just got my Blueberry Tea H-Line Persona few days ago. What I can tell you is that I am very happy with Proton this time.
    The engine is very quite. The sound of shutting/slamming the doors is fantastic. Handling wise is excellent. I don’t feel any flaw with the gear transmission. The interior does not feel that cheap. H-Line comes with ABS, EBD, airbags, and the boot lid can be opened with a press of a button. I’m using V-Power petrol that costs me RM85 for the full tank and it moves like a wind. I used Kit to wax the whole body and what I can tell you is the body is solid, not like sardin cans. Also, thanks to the dealer that bundles with rubber protectors at the doors, steering lock, RM150 tint voucher, and an umbrella. But, there are two things that I feel dissapointed.
    First, they promised Captor System for H-Line but due to reasons knowns by them, it is replaced with GPS Navigation system which I don’t think I need it. How can they trade security with a nvigation system? At least, give consumer options either GPS or get the refund.
    Second, somehow I notice a small cracking sound while maneuvering the car at less than 20km/h (in car basement). I’m not so sure why is that so but the sound is very minimal. It takes an ear of a bat to hear it sometimes.
    Other than that, the car is fine. Worth for money.

  12. #25 by Jack on January 1, 2008 - 5:27 pm

    The Persona H line is bundled with many accessories, but the worst is the GPS navigator called mynavi

    My family got the car and we were forced to buy it with the GPS unit. This was despite reading many terrible reviews about it from other forums and complaining to Proton before we made the purchase. We told them we did not want it, and they told us we had no choice, or downgrade to the M line.

    Sure enough, the packaged GPS is lousy. It gives wrong directions, it runs out of battery life very fast, the map is not accurate and it is always telling me I “am going the wrong way, make a U-turn”

    I don’t understand why Proton would bundle a GPS when they already promised the customers CAPTOR. I saw the car specs when they launched it.

    I have heard of CAPTOR for many years and I know they have strong support from insurance companies. Why would Proton want to drop CAPTOR as a product and put in this inferior product in its place? Proton cars are so easy to steal. I don’t see why a GPS navigator that doesn’t work properly can help improve safety for the customers!

    Other than that, I also had some minor problems with the car. The back makes a squeaky noise, the door won’t close properly and the window rosak after a few weeks.

    Is Proton really improving?

    • #26 by Nurfissa on April 21, 2008 - 12:39 pm

      Just got my Persona 3 weeks ago. Same goes to me. Got squeky sound at the back, in front got sound also maybe becoz the aircond, and last but not least the window start making sound at the 2nd week. Right now, want to go to SC..but dunno which one is good. Heard that all proton personnel have this kind of behaviour which is…treat customer like idiot, not really know what they r doing bla bla bla…I just want the best for my car..huhu…Can anybody propose? I’m around KL. Thanks

      • #27 by Ron Howe on May 25, 2008 - 12:35 am

        Bought the Hi-line last yr.and have to say the pros are more than the cons
        1)Squeaky sound when going over the bums but the sc fixed it without even me asking.Good work they wash my car everytime.
        2)Noisy blower motor,they replaced it with a new one,so far no problem!
        3)One problematic central lock was also fixed,so far also no more problem
        4)Blinking door light and one loose air-vent were also rectified very quickly.

        The service centre is at Jln Templer near Federal Highway immediately after Petronas station left turn.Here u go.

        Conclusion:After all these minor hiccups had been taken care of I have been enjoying driving my car.Late burst of power quite impressive,no need IAFM,if u got it then congrat!Otherwise the TCU will make ado for me.Good PC and very good handling(feel safe n secured)Above all,looks great and value for money.Yeah why pay RM20000 more for the same conplains.Buy Malaysia!

  13. #28 by Sam on January 15, 2008 - 6:28 pm

    Having also bought the Persona premium car, the car did come with the GPS device.

    As correctly pointed up above, the comments are all true.

    But I would also like to add that the user interface is not good.

    I did complain to the Proton branch and finally sold it to one of the dealers for $500.

    Which is strange because Proton price to consumer is about $1,000 but they claim the retail price is $1,900.

    Here I am selling it back to the dealer for $500.

    Call me a fool but I never use this GPS and would rather have some residual cash in hand than a product that I would never use effectively.

  14. #29 by JJ on January 30, 2008 - 5:44 pm

    Was considering Persona and Myvii, can anyone tell me which is a better choice ??

    • #30 by paisunk on March 9, 2009 - 10:32 pm

      b4 that what are your priorities.for a city commute go 4 a myvi.if ur job needs u to travel to far places go 4 persona.1.3cc and 1.6cc have a lot of difference.myvi boot space is very small.few bags only.fuel consumption persona auto gulps more fuel than myvi.but if u use overdrive on myvi it gulps more than persona.i just got my persona a week ago n 4 me its very nimble n quite responsive 4 a 110 hp sedan.but the rear end is high.u cant c rear car’s headlight if they r near ur butt.lot of blind spot.not to mention small side mirrors.u can push myvi up to 180kmh n overtake 4 cars at a time using OD.for 200km it gulps rm40 of fuel if u drive aggrasively.myvi’s cornering is not so good.max 110-120kmh on tight turns.not tested on persona habis pantang.1000km.

  15. #31 by missy on January 30, 2008 - 8:33 pm

    i was also considering myvi and persona, but somehow I made decision that if I wanna buy persona, i will use it forever till it break or will give it to my siblings after 7/9 years.. or sell it cheap to my siblings if i wanna be a cheap skate.. just think that persona wont be under powered, has more storage when needed, and the body is much stronger than myvi… the drawback is ofcourse consume a bit more petrol with 1.6cc, and sell back price is lower… but the rest is better.

    hope this is helpful

  16. #32 by jj on January 30, 2008 - 9:34 pm

    Thanx missy 4 your advice but after reading all the -ve views on persona on the Motor Trader Malaysia Forum, I am really worried. Have booked Myvii initially but after seeing the Persona at Proton showroom, my hubby asked me to change to Persona. Persona do looks more elegant but with so many -ve comments I m very undecided.

  17. #33 by rudy on January 30, 2008 - 10:49 pm

    tmrw I’m getting my persona..wait for my comment…

  18. #34 by missy on February 1, 2008 - 9:04 pm

  19. #35 by rudy on February 1, 2008 - 10:37 pm

    helo, I got my Persona yesterday, I took it from sibu. about the car, yes it’s a slow pickup, too hard to drive in a vehicle-packed city. anyway, I’m fully satisfied with the car, coz right now, I just have to drive from 60km/h~80km/h, coz its still new. cant wait to reach 1000km, hehehe…then, woooosh!

  20. #36 by Lee on February 3, 2008 - 1:12 pm

    Oh my God

    The Persona H-line is so over-hyped.

    It is more like a replacement WIRA than anything else.

    And the comments above are true on that mynavi GPS. Really bad.

    I was in China a couple months ago and saw almost the exact same system selling at a RETAIL SHOP for about $400 to $500.

    Here is Proton selling us for over $1,000.

    Geez. What a waste.

  21. #37 by Bill on February 7, 2008 - 11:31 pm

    Why on Earth would Proton want to drop CAPTOR and put in a GPS you stick into a cigarette lighter??

    I was driving in my friend’s car and it was telling me we were going the wrong way!

    Completely hopeless. Why break something that already works?

    Malaysians don’t need a map.

    We want security in the face of rising hijacks, robberies, car thefts and crime.

    We want to feel safe@

  22. #38 by Fairuz on February 12, 2008 - 6:41 pm

    hi everyone !!

    anyone here can compare between nissan sentra 2001 auto VS proton persona H-line. which one should i buy if my salary around RM 2k.
    i mean more realiable in term of maintenance and performance. PLEASE!!

  23. #39 by noname on February 16, 2008 - 12:46 am

    full tank can drive how many km?

  24. #40 by James on February 24, 2008 - 11:43 pm

    If you wanna compare the Persona H line versus a non-POroton car, get a non-Proton car.

    My friend has the Persona and it sucks. Plus the GPS mynavi is useless. Can you believe that we put it on navigation mode (with no destination) and a few times the device was telling us “you are going the wrong way”.

    And look at the new Waja CPS. At $67k, you might as well pay the extra $5k and get a low end Toyota Vios. And why didn’t Proton have a big sales launch for the new Waja CPS? Because they know they can’t sell it!

    Proton has lost the plot. They try to sell cheap cars to gain back market share, but other than the Persona and Saga, they have nothing.

  25. #41 by Rudy on February 25, 2008 - 1:36 pm

    which viscosity is suitable for proton? generally, for new car? is it 15W40 or 20W50? what brand is suitable?

  26. #42 by missy on February 29, 2008 - 11:12 pm

    just got my new teaberry persona A/T M-line today… i took it during heavy rain… worry that it might dirty the car but however it just looks gorgeous even under the rain. 😛

    neway, everything is fine, except that the sr took 7 days to hand it to me since downpayment.. n the sr gave me 40% tint on alls, sandblast, steering lock and a bag..

    however to my suprise the car is too long 4.3m i think, and quite tall 1.45m (however compared to BLM’s height=1.51m), it looks enormous compared to my neighbour’s parked WAJA..

    test drive it around just now at night and it’s feels fine.

  27. #43 by LATIFAH SULEIMAN on March 5, 2008 - 2:07 pm

    hi every body..juz drob by to find any feedback and infos abt Persona. Actually i’ve already booking the new saga BLM last january. But then, after reviewing the feedback from the BLM’s owners which are more -ve, i think i would like to change my mind to another proton’s model..would it be Persona..Waja or Gen2 or Savy???? arrrrghhh…tension already!! still dunno which one I shold go for..

    Can anyone out there give me opinion?plzzzz….Or other wise, just wait for the BLM…huh…headache…headache….

  28. #44 by rudy on March 5, 2008 - 8:19 pm

    better u take Persona than any other proton model u mention. it’s worth ur money. rite now, I own Persona, very3 excellent. want to have a more smooth ride, better u try X-1R and Mobil with viscosity of 15W40. I guarantee u.

  29. #45 by Potong on March 7, 2008 - 2:33 am

    Hih…proton eh..more like kete potong…try buying it, it’s like untung batu tenggelam, untung sabut timbul and previously it was more like 90% untung batu. This is my last buy with proton.

  30. #46 by 328i on March 7, 2008 - 1:15 pm

    i’m only posting this because i feel that some of the negative comments levelled on the new persona and proton are a little too harsh and uncalled for.

    personally, i’ve found the persona to be a very good car indeed. there is no “gen2’ness” about it at all. I can say that I really hated the gen2 and all its quality issues.

    fortunately, the persona has change my perception on proton. its smooth, and relatively quiet at highway cruising speeds. the car is also comfortable, and still handles pretty well.

    some comments, i just dont understand…

    “The Persona H-line is so over-hyped. It is more like a replacement WIRA than anything else.” i just dont get this comment.. the persona IS A WIRA REPLACEMENT. we dont see people saying, “the new bmw E90 is so over-hyped. It is more like a bmw e46 replacement than anything else..”. i hope you guys see my point in this.

    and to james, if you’re gonna criticise, at least be a little more descriptive than just “the car sux”. that sure tells a lot.

    “And look at the new Waja CPS. At $67k, you might as well pay the extra $5k and get a low end Toyota Vios. And why didn’t Proton have a big sales launch for the new Waja CPS? Because they know they can’t sell it!

    67k 5k=72k. lowest spec new vios = 79k. as for the CPS, its just an engine change.. and its not a new car. its also an ageing model slated for replacement soon. i think proton did the right marketing decision by not doing a large launch, as they already know, or any smart marketing person will tell you, you cant sell it in large numbers already as its near the end of its cycle. no point wasting big bucks on a launch to sell a few cars.

  31. #47 by mehran on March 8, 2008 - 3:32 am

    Dear Sir
    This is Mehran Mahsafar mechanical Student of automobile in Iran, after a year and half research in pneumatic systems (air compress), system functions and power supply motors and power transfer systems (movement-speed-power-full stop) in automobiles, I have designed a mechanized automobile based on compressed Air and Air Magnet and Air rechargeable (from movement to full stop) with 100% function better than (gasoline – gas – hydrogen – alcohol and rechargeable batteries).
    Note: As you know MVM and its professional groups has designed pneumatic pistons with some mistakes in their egg shaped cars that needs about (2-3 hours) charge of air and it uses gasoline in necessary cases and some other problems that caused them to avoid for design and make them public. One of these faults is in Air escape of motor and the way they design the piston of motor with a little bit changes in the air based motor and injection of air (course car) and as a result a heavy motor with a law radioman has a big distance with automobile industry revolution of air compressing automobiles. I have ability to design and produce of all kinds of (cars-trucks-motorcycles- trains-boats and any cars that float in the water) with 5 different models and designs of pneumatic-air dynamic-magnet and rechargeable magnet (force injection of recycling air in motor and temporarily with filling of the air in capsules) without any need to petrol, in one of my latest designs there is no need to Motor or Gear box and the energy transfer Line makes ability for movement and air revolving in automobile removes the need for any expensive petrol in car and I believe that this project will bring the clean air and solving the problem of air pollution and lots financial benefits for you and this will be the phenomenon of the 2009.
    In one of my projects I can design a pomp that stores the compressed air and can use instead of CNG and Gasoline pumps and in mehrpnumatic the initial press in capsule is made and after that the capsule with Turbo or Super magnetic fans in 2ways works and will be saved in the automobile air store capsule for magnet pistons that with atmospheric or deaf springs will generate the power for air production and steady circulation of it that cause for movement of car and over drive in desert and mountains (Magnet rechargeable magneto). The main aim is producing the power in air store capsule with fully detachable and semi detachable two side and one side capsules.
    5 projects:
    1- Pneumatic motors with rechargeable capsule force by recycling of the air and development of MVM project (electricity and magneto), gearbox by your request, and the radioman volume is completely different from pneumatic motors and can be used in overdrive and over motors in mountains.
    2- Helix Motors with saving air that can be designed with gear box, power supply (high power compress)
    3- The latest design of Roto motor with direct force – Gear box omission with compressed air design, Vankel horizontal motor vertical.
    4-Motor, Gearbox omission (Air Capsules are generator of power with magnetic vacuums with a perpetual energy transfer line is used in city or roads for independent running of each wheels – forward running – the back wheels running or Variomatic weight which is used in boats in land or sea – moving system in sea-a) locust or direct jet form (it is a expensive but attractive classic design)
    In this design and plans we could use variomatic cincture and some other ways.
    Note: In all of these automobiles rechargeable force and electricity or battery (hybrid system) magneto or electricity generator is with brake and coolers – hitters and air conditioners – opening and closing of the doors and suspension of the back and front -Gearbox and clutch could be changed pneumatic by the least charge and for tenderness of them we could use Hydro pneumatic. For Train – Boat – Motorcycle and bicycle pneumatic plans are ready by me.
    If you were interested all of the security systems and control of the automobile could be done by Electronic Micro switches that sends signals to EC4 and software that controls the whole movement of the car even without any driver in it and just with a case nearby.
    If you were interested in my cases, please be in hurry till we get the industrial revolution of automobiles in the world.
    Note: all of my plans and graphs for motors are ready but for material which is used in motors you must be patient somehow.
    I believe on my plans and my aim is not just money because the vital purpose is the revolution in motor industry and air pollution that is cause by fuels. The latest product in motor car by me is the one that needs just air for movement and air capsules generator of power and Hybrid generators (emergency fortifier)

    we would like to invite all personarian out there to joining us.
    as persona’s owner, we glad that PERSONA had met Malaysian dreams to see proton climbing up again.

    so far, the PERSONA worth for money value.

    more info regarding PERSONA? come see us at

  33. #49 by Irwan on March 13, 2008 - 10:07 am

    i’m glad that people are started to like proton. This is what happen when a company listens to its customers. not just selling cheap stuff and hide behind government’s back.

    Hope to hear more good news from proton in the upcoming year.

  34. #50 by fayna on March 23, 2008 - 4:35 pm

    i think persona is quit better than gen2. why i said like that becoz the price n quality are suitable. but now i confius to chose the colour for my new persona. can you guys give me your sugestion.

  35. #51 by JJ on March 24, 2008 - 4:59 pm

    I think metal grey is cool. YOu can consider.

  36. #52 by persona on March 24, 2008 - 10:00 pm

    metal grey – look like bmw new color.. sometimes look grey sometimes look blue.. nice color..

    blueberry tea – new color.. like mazda color.

    solid white/ tranqulity black – identity color.. smart when you love to modified ur car.

  37. #53 by miche on March 26, 2008 - 5:28 pm

    for new car, go for fully or semi synthetic if you have the $$$. anything from 5w40 to 10w40. if not 10w40 to 15w40 mineral base also can. once the car is more than 5yo, you can change to 15w40 or 20w50. if depends on how much you are willing to spend. for synthetic lube, i think BHP brand is cheapest for brand oil. please dont go buy unknown brand for synthetic range. lots of recycled lube around now. (psst…i work in a lubricant manufacturing company) 😀

  38. #54 by Rudy on April 1, 2008 - 1:41 pm

    Helo Miche, thx. hei, lots of recycled lube around? aiyo…I think maybe u r mentioning the non branded one rite? anyway, after I’m using Mobil + X-1R, my fuel consumption decrease from 7.7L/100 KM to 7.6L/100KM, until rite now it is 7.5L/100KM.

  39. #55 by jai on April 6, 2008 - 1:33 pm

    after 10 years used iswara , i sold at RM6k and take it as deposit, 2 wek later i got my persona mline,wit big bonet smooth engine but slow pickup, petrol average 0.14-0.18 cent /km. the problem salesman said service every 10,000 km but servcnter said 5000km , which one is right?
    if 10,000 we safe on labour cost/fuel filter

  40. #56 by Paddle on April 7, 2008 - 2:26 pm

    Hi everybody!Nice reading all your comments on Persona…Im looking for my first car.Considering my salary (RM2K++),i think Proton suit for me.But which is more worth my money, new Gen2 CPS or Persona?If possible cud u share the price for these cars.Hope to hear from u guys….

  41. #57 by jai on April 7, 2008 - 10:14 pm

    hi, paddle

    if u bachelor buy new cps persona, if u maried buy new persona with iafm

  42. #58 by Irwan on April 8, 2008 - 12:59 am

    jai » haha nice advice. but can you explain more about the difference?

  43. #59 by Paddle on April 8, 2008 - 7:38 pm

    Yeah…what’s the different? i’ve heard that Toyota giving discount for Vios…with d/payment rm3300 and rm880 monthly installment..dude,that sounds affordable…nway,can you all share your YM id so that i can chat with you.Your constructive discussion sounds interesting…

    • #60 by jai on April 9, 2008 - 10:06 pm


      this brand also not good, my 10 yrs experience use same brand for engin & petrol oil for my iswara ,cubrator & valve problem (plug not function)

  44. #61 by mfairuzs on April 8, 2008 - 10:32 pm

    Lately, almost new car are assembled with cheap parts. So be careful as example, most of dashboards are made from hard plastic like kancil used. No more like wira dashboard.

    For good lubricant oil is Petronas Syntium….Its prooven…for long term.

  45. #62 by Zigg on April 9, 2008 - 12:02 pm

    I just want to say one thing about this oil “Petronas Syntium”.

    We are citizen of Malaysia. Don’t we deserve a better price from our home made producer. Too pricey la for an everage ppl like me.

    Right now I would still opt for Q8 oil (imported). Proven also but much cheaper than our own producer.

    Bila la malaysia ni nak jadi cam develop country. Dianak tirikan in our home country. Other develop country cost of living also high but purchasing power is higher too.

    Over here, businesses charging us as if like comparing with apple to apple to develop country (RM tp US dollar) but then don’t they realize we earn less than them on average.

    What’s the point of having our own brand, our own technology if the ppl itself could not afford it.

  46. #63 by miche on April 9, 2008 - 1:52 pm


    i’m working in a lubricant manufacturing co. i agree that imported lube is cheaper that locals’ because all this while we got the raw materials from US, Gremany, Korea, and Singapore.

    come this August, Petronas will start producing they own base oil (that’s the raw material for the lube). so you can expect cheaper lube soon. i hope. or they will get higher profit. hehe.

  47. #64 by mfairuzs on April 9, 2008 - 9:41 pm

    But now whole ppl in the world are know Petronas syntium since BMW Sauber getting podium in F1….
    I’ve informed by mechanic to get precaution on most popular product like S***L, M****L because some of the product are recycled. It happened on cheap product also….

  48. #65 by huhu on April 10, 2008 - 3:58 pm

    just buy la.. great car.. im use it..

  49. #66 by JJ on April 10, 2008 - 4:11 pm

    Just got my new car 2 weeks ago. Really love it. One thing about the reverse sensor, it’s not as sensitive as I thought. I have to reverse until very near the target then I hear the beeping sound. Anyone have the same problem or is it a problem for my car ?

    • #67 by Nurfissa on April 21, 2008 - 12:47 pm

      The reverse sensor sound is very2 slow la. hardly hear be more alert 🙂

      • #68 by Ron Howe on May 25, 2008 - 12:47 am

        I still dont know why they make the rear end so high,cant imagine parking without the reverse sensor.Works for me though.Also good to know it’s a Cobalt lookalike.Check it out!

    • #69 by farah on August 1, 2009 - 6:29 pm

      hey..i also have the same prob about the reverse sensor..i have to off my radio button b4 reversing my persona car, just to hear the sound..very sad..n i just dont understand y people keep bugging bout persona had so much.i think it is a great car. compare to myvi.i think myvi’s seat is too high for someone tall like me.. i feel like riding a kembara.and it is not sporty like persona bcoz of its height..maybe i’m more to sporty car..what do u think?..n can someone help me with the reverse sound??..plzzzz

  50. #70 by Paddle on April 10, 2008 - 11:06 pm

    JJ, what car did u bought?im looking for my first new car..what criteria u take in choosing ur car?

  51. #71 by JJ on April 11, 2008 - 5:46 pm

    Persona – Metal Grey. I love it. It’s really cool….

    Criteria – Save Petrol and pleasant looking

  52. #72 by missy on April 13, 2008 - 6:23 pm

    criteria is:
    *power 1.3cc / 1.6cc then this affect fuel concumption… for persona city driving is like 8.8L/100km=0.18cent per km, per month abt RM200-RM300 depends…
    *safety: airbag, ABS break, anti theft… for persoa ML, 1 airbag and no ABS, HL got 2 aibags with ABS..
    *space, persona is spacious and got biggg boot, myvi is ok (less spacious tho and small boot so u hav to reconsider buyin bigger car when u got married, else no problemo..)
    *maintenance, persona warranty is 5 years/ 60000km… perodua is only 2 years.. parts for proton is cheaper (am i right?)
    *depreciation rate, proton car value fall faster than perodua so far..

    i dunno wat else, cos i also just bought persona teaberry last two months and that is my first car…

  53. #73 by missy on April 13, 2008 - 6:26 pm

    sorry wrong guy, I mean to Paddle… and JJ, yep i also sense that my reverse sensor beep a lil bit too late but i reverse quite slow so its not a problem, plus the beeping sound vary wih distance to the object

  54. #74 by Paddle on April 13, 2008 - 11:36 pm

    Im thinking of buying this new Gen2 CPS….what u guys think?

  55. #75 by jai on April 14, 2008 - 7:33 am

    hi paddle,
    buy a car with latest engine t’nology ,new G2 with cps sporty ,suit for bachelor.

  56. #76 by bluffy83 on April 14, 2008 - 1:37 pm

    just buy vios laa.. just let proton bungkus maa.. sama olang sendili pun mau jual mahal.. buat kereta pun pakai besi buruk.. semua mau untung.. bodo punya olang..

  57. #77 by psona JKS on April 14, 2008 - 11:03 pm

    bluffy 83
    if u hav much money buy BM or Merc why VIOS?

    i read customer complain on vios
    as many complain, new vios has poor sound proofing … and the remote alarm not that sensitif

    low interior quality
    interior design very simple
    body very smooth..tekan saja dah boleh kemek

  58. #78 by hasz on April 17, 2008 - 9:25 am

    i drive a vios,i experience a few problem also,so don’t really trust the T badge…..nasihat saya kalau nak beli keta,tengoklah kemampuan sendiri….he..he..he..

    • #79 by psona JKS on April 17, 2008 - 7:06 pm

      i agree wit u hasz, i pay for 2.8% mbank loan via package tak kira model of new car to my company. buat ape nak pening2 kepala.

  59. #80 by XT on April 17, 2008 - 10:02 pm

    I’ve test drive on Persona and Gen2 CPX. Both models sound proof quite alright. For CPS model I hit 100kmh at ~ 12sec, but the torque at 2nd gear to 3rd gear, a slight of improvement only. (probally due to brand new engine).Overall this is quite a nice car base on the price range.

    I felt the con on the back sit, too straight and very unconfortable when sat on it.

    Hoping that Proton will improve it.

  60. #81 by Paddle on April 17, 2008 - 11:15 pm

    I do agree that ‘beli ikut kemampuan’…but hearing frm colleagues n friend bout how stupid r u to buy proton car make me undecisive…argh,for this is a big decision..i’ve to make a right one then..given if ur a bachelor with rm2.5k, what car will you go…guys,help me…

  61. #82 by jai on April 18, 2008 - 9:38 pm

    RM2.5K , Bachelor i think Suzuki Swift Sport suitable for u…

  62. #83 by Paddle on April 20, 2008 - 12:24 am

    Thanx jai…but sorry to say im not a fan of this compact car.Plus,y did pay rm0.8k every month for that tiny car.At that price,i rather go with vios.Nway,thanx for ur opinion.I think i’ll go with Persona or Gen2 cos i like to invest in property(beli tanah wo)….haha.

  63. #84 by JJ on April 21, 2008 - 11:42 am

    Missy, just got my car service today for the 1st 1000Km, told them abt the reverse sensor, they got it fix, now it beeps when it’s not too near the target. You can get the proton service center to fix yours too

  64. #85 by Just Wondering on April 25, 2008 - 4:36 pm

    Dear All,
    I only believed myself.If u want to buy something you like,just buy and don’t listen what people said or comment.Some will make you headache and some will make you feel positive.But,ask yourself,what you want actually?If you feel that is good just but.If you feel that is bad don’t buy.Outside there still a lot of model that you can choose.Why you bother what people said.Rite?for me i am going to buy persona because my company buy for me and i am not using my own money.Haahahahahahaaa…………So,seriously talk.JUST BUY WHAT U FEEL IS GOOD BUT,MAKE SURE U AFFORT IT TO PAY MONTHLY.

  65. #86 by Just Wondering on April 25, 2008 - 4:40 pm

    Hi,i’m back again.wat car u drive is not important.I’m own a peugeot 406.And i’m going to drive persona ( COMPANY CAR).I don’t mind drive from big car to small car.The most important thing is DRIVE SMART AND DRIVE CAREFULLY.This is wat we want.

  66. #87 by JJ on April 25, 2008 - 4:53 pm

    I agree totally, just be proud of what you drive. Most Importantly, drive safely.

  67. #88 by persona JKS on April 26, 2008 - 12:21 am

    i also proud drive persona just 4 month , no problem. sometime i went to office by m/cycle , save cost, avoid jem i don care wat my off mate say. asalkan bahagia.

  68. #89 by Paddle on April 27, 2008 - 11:23 pm

    Hi guys…i just booked gen2 aifm few days ago. i strongly agree with Just Wondering and Persona…plus,car is only a liability..i more interested invested in asset and property..

  69. #90 by Rudy on April 28, 2008 - 9:39 am

    Paddle, how’s the AIFM model? is it just a slight improvement only, or to say just same as the current Campro?

    • #91 by daniel on August 19, 2009 - 2:45 pm

      campro or IAFM version to me is all bullshit.
      overall the engine is 1.6litre with 16valve and DOHC, high fuel consumption and moreless 120hp +-,definitely is outdate tech.

  70. #92 by TESTDRIVER on May 3, 2008 - 10:09 pm

    I had long left buying proton but this year I felt to give a try for my wife on Persona.

    I felt so bad on the day I tried to take Persona found a undesirable dent( bengkok ) on the lower door passenger frame

    I refuse to settle the balance payment which I need to pay RM3K. They mention they will repaint and ketuk I ask for a letter if they could gurantee that this won’t void the warranty claims. They can’t give me a ltter yet and I still issist one. I ask if i could be compensented and no answers so far

    I was so frustrated as I cannot change to new car as all hire purchase have been signed off.

    If this how proton operates than I am so sorry for the prime minister and his visions for Malaysian made car quality.

    I will get repaired car next week and I pray there will be no side effects from the repairs.

    Does anyone know what can I do to get compensented ?? I wish to get compensented for this. Had add this note in several forums !

  71. #93 by persona JKS on May 4, 2008 - 7:47 am

    test drive
    why not u ask with tribunal tuntutan pengguna?

  72. #94 by Syukor on May 8, 2008 - 11:09 am

    II baru dapat Persona 18/4 lepas. Guys, cuba check fuel meter bila tangki betul2 penuh. My car tak sampai meter tertinggi. So I dah repair masa first 1000km service. Please check ya…

    • #95 by paisunk on March 9, 2009 - 10:57 pm

      i just get my persona a week ago.just reached 1000km.the problem is i cant fill up the tank.after 68 bucks it will spill like hell.the meter shows its still not full.few days ago when i was driving from gua musang to kota bharu in a heavy headlights(high beam)stops functioning.when i change to high beam due to heavy rain,my headlights from hero to darkness.imagine taking a tight corner at 110kmh in a heavy rain with sudden darkness.after a carefull inspection,its a faulty wire in the dashboard(not properly connected)

  73. #96 by peace on May 25, 2008 - 11:21 pm

  76. #99 by persona JKS on May 28, 2008 - 11:25 pm

    dont wori, ur salesman will brief u ,make short distance test drive, try all switch. check all door body (ade kemek ke takde)that my experience at jb plentong Pr-Edar ,they will take emediet action if any complain.

    Hi, any idea about sport rim type and color for my silver persona? Or if you have any good website related, please share it with me..Thanks

  78. #101 by Syukor on May 30, 2008 - 9:52 am

    BLM and Persona? Persona 1.6 right? Depend on how fast you are driving. Anyway if you are looking for less money spend on fuel ..BLM but muatan kureng ok…lebih muatan..jadi beban…minyak pun bertambah…pendapat saja.

  79. #102 by Syukor on May 30, 2008 - 9:54 am

    Persona JKS,
    How do you calculate the fuel consumption for your persona?


  80. #103 by persona JKS on June 2, 2008 - 7:27 pm

    sori my lowest indicator show 7.6L/100km (1.92 X 7,6 = rm 14.59) from Pgudang to mallaca (full 5 person,bags everthing for 3day-cuti ) via highway & jalan lama highway AMJ average speed 90-110km/h (pemandu berkhemah lo!)

  81. #104 by HLOwner on June 4, 2008 - 4:56 pm

    Dudes and dudettes,

    I have owned Persona for 6 months. No single problem at all. The best thing is that, the car can go very fast. I’m driving a high-line model and it can really go up to 185km/h! Fuel consumption is also not bad for an auto car – around 17 cents per km. Full tank can bring me from Putrajaya to Kangar – with full ‘cargo’ load.

    The pick-up is maybe a bit slow, but it is not really a big problem to me. So, don’t buy Toyota or Honda (unless you want to buy Civic or Altis). As a family car, Persona is truly a value for money in its class.

  82. #105 by Ice cold on June 7, 2008 - 11:52 pm

    Yey… what happen to u guys?? your fuel consumption higher than 7L/100km? I just bought Persona H Line AIFM black colour… I usually drive 100 to 130 km/hr and it always shown lower than 6.5L/100km… I’m always travel around and it still lower than 6.5L. Maybe cause the AIFM engine gives me a lot better fuel consumption… just buy it… lots better than Vios and City! ^_^

    • #106 by Syukor on July 3, 2008 - 2:01 pm

      Lower than 6.5L/100KM?? My Persona maintain saja 6.5l/100km. Mungkin I drive biasa saja (Perlahan) or muatan kureng…

      • #107 by Ice cold on July 6, 2008 - 6:09 pm

        Syukor. I have a very good news! Last month I drove from Kuantan to KL. Maintain 160 – 180 km/hr from Tol Jabor to Tol Karak. The highest fuel consumption was 6.9L/100km! It doesn’t always mean slow driving equal low fuel consumption. If we can maintain the car’s momentum at its highest peak, fuel consumption may be resonable.

        p/s: be alert… pak polisi is always watching… huhu…

        • #108 by Ron Howe on July 9, 2008 - 12:25 am

          Actually if u ask me;i dont really trust the trip computer on fuel consumption.My indicator had never even once shown a less than 9.8l/100km reading whether city or highway but the consumption was excellent,from KL to Seremban and back only RM15 petrol(old price)110-120 k/hr.with no IAFM.Better to calculate on my own than read the computer.

        • #109 by Syukor on July 16, 2008 - 6:21 pm

          Dari website proton edar @ perfomance persona (may be average kot) kegunaan minyak 6.3liter/100km pada kelajuan 90km/h. Memang benar pendapat Ron Howe(Replied on July 9,2008) Paling baik kira sendiri kot…ahaks

  83. #110 by Lim on June 14, 2008 - 11:10 pm

    I was very impress with Persona. Compare with 4.5 years ago I brought a Waja is totally not to Standard. Many issue on Waja. Means what we pay is not what we get. As for now, I will say Yes, Proton did a very good job on Quality. I can see the improvement but not sure how long it can last. The most respect to Proton is the 1.6 Proton Persona price. Is almost similar with Produa MyVi. This should be the way for to capture the car market. Honestly, I like MyVi shape, but it really not Value for money as the price too expensive. I saw few accident on highway which from MyVi. Is MyVi good and stable handling on Highway? I guess alot people speed more that the limit.

  84. #111 by Confuse on June 14, 2008 - 11:26 pm

    I went to check the price for Viva and MyVi. Thinking to own one for them. When I get a catalog from the salesman, I was so sad and unable to describe what happen. The price really shoot up compare 2006,2007 and now 2008. To own a small simple car 850 / 1.0 / 1.3 CC and below, I need to spend starting from RM26K-RM50K. Too high price. I asking myself try next brand. Went to Proton. Saw new Proton Saga price starting from RM32K. Check the spec, find that sufficient enough for 1.3 Spec. Also starting RM32K can start own a brand new 1.3CC car. What is next? Without question much, I go for Proton.

  85. #112 by Paddle on June 20, 2008 - 12:00 pm

    Now, i drove gen2 iafm. It such a good car…for it class.NIce exterior and interior…its 600km already,and no problem occurred. I drove manual transmission,and for me it gives satisfied performance. The seat such a cool design..even it not laether..Thank to Proton.

  86. #113 by persona JKS on June 20, 2008 - 9:44 pm

    ya la! proton many improvement, due no more subsidy on fuel the price should less right.

  87. #114 by persona27 on June 27, 2008 - 9:51 pm

    Hi everybody

    • #116 by Ice cold on July 6, 2008 - 6:04 pm

      Yeah… agreed with Ron. Just send to the service centre… tukar je when there still under warranty. Mine still excellent… huhu…

    Hi……..I’m just ordering my new persona……just to ask you opinion actually….which colour should i opt for? the most suitable for a man?…I ‘m actually been attracted to the Blueberry Tea..looks gorgeous though…but so does the silver…really in the problem now.can anyone help me for some advise? oh yeah…indeed my cloeague are laughing at me actually for the blueberry tea….a lady’s colour they said….anyone comments?


    • #118 by gomez on July 1, 2008 - 9:38 pm

      prefered black or white…if u put accesories…easy to paint and nice…also looks gorgeous when u tinted..

    • #119 by Ice cold on July 6, 2008 - 5:55 pm

      My advice is this; Choose other than black if you don’t want to see your car always “kotor” but mine is black… ^_^

      Why? Look very smart and executive in every angle…

    • #120 by paisunk on March 9, 2009 - 11:05 pm

      i prefer solid white.put a green goldish tint and sets of wheels.16inch cool.try to survey a campro supercharger.i;ve seen one on neo.exhaust n new camshaft suits the racer’s breed.

  89. #121 by Syukor on July 2, 2008 - 8:34 pm

    Persona 27,
    My Persona baru 3 bulan. Sejak beli lagi, sama mcm Persona U jugak, ada bunyi lbh kureng seperti tikus makan kertas (or doing whatever laa). May be bunyi dari lubang aircond but not sure. 1st time servis yg lepas terlupa nk britau mekanik PROTON. Anyway bunyi bkenaan bknnya selalu. Kadang2 saja. Tunggu 2nd time servis utk pastikan masalah bkenaan. If u solved dulu problem tu, jgn lupa britau dlm forum. TQ

  90. #122 by Syukor on July 2, 2008 - 8:43 pm

    Semua warna yg ditawarkan PROTON utk Persona sesuai utk lelaki kecuali kalau warna PINK kot (Ada ker?..heheh)..apa kata kalian semua?…huh.. Paling OK warna metallic cerah, kalau tercalar sikit2..tak ketara sangat…or pilih warna yg bleh cepat dpt kereta…Ahaks..OK.

  91. #123 by marisa on July 3, 2008 - 9:10 am

    Yes, I agree. Silver metalic the best kalau tercalar atau kereta kotor tak perasan sangat. You all tahu tak, warna kejayaan adalah warna silver? I attend satu kursus/seminar by Dr. Fadhillah Kamsah, warna yang melambangkan kejayaan adalah warna silver, thats why most of the corporate/leaders suka drive kereta warna silver metalic dan pakai bush-jacket or coat warna silver grey. Bila i visit my australian corporate expatriate friends who stays at exclusive condominium, can see cars park there about 90% silver metallic color!
    Kesian u all kereta baru beli dah berbunyi air-cond, I dah pakai kereta 4 tahun (ATOS )alhamdulillah nasib baik tak ada problem dan masih sejuk mcm baru beli, kadang2 nasib juga beli kereta ni…

    • #124 by Ice cold on July 6, 2008 - 6:00 pm

      I quite not agree with you Marisa…
      It depends on luck actually…

      I have one friend… he bought Mercedes E200 Kompressor and after 3 months there were few problems occured. Car battery mulfunction, low battery remote key and computer sensor gone crazy….

      • #125 by Syukor on July 16, 2008 - 6:31 pm

        I agree with Ice cold…depend on luck. Kawan I
        1)Toyota Avanza baru – Problem dgn power window, dah solved masa hantar servis.
        2) Naza Citra baru – Cooling tank leaking, sampaikan injin terus jam. Nasib baik masih ada waranti tapi at least 3 bulan kot (Sampai sekarang masih tunggu).
        So Marisa, I rasa U antara yg bertuah kot…ahaks

    my chinese friend always said
    beli keleta mau harga mulah,
    balang mau baik , tak bunyi sana sini.
    beli bmw la

    ‘persona syer fan aircond & engine’

    my 6mth persona so far no problem,

  93. #127 by Success on July 9, 2008 - 4:05 pm

    Yes, i brought a new Persona B-Line (Silver). The car is good compare previous proton quality.(Iswara, Wira, Waja). I agreed with others, the Air Con sound like “Ada Tikus Dalam”. And the Interior Seats quality is lousy. Anyone plan to upgrade it to leather?

    • #128 by Syukor on July 16, 2008 - 6:44 pm

      Kalu leather seat perlu tinted cermin yg mahal skit kot. Pasal bila mula2 duduk waktu panas tgh hari…pedih kulit sebab panas..aduh. I try byk kereta, semua sama even dia punya window tinted IR 70%. Mungkin IR 100% paling sesuai (Ada ker)..ahaks. Tapi leather seat senang cuci. Pendapat saja. Thanks.

    hye all, i baru jer amik persona H-Line AT hitam.. cun gak.. berapa skang braper hinggit tangki penuh?

    • #131 by Syukor on July 16, 2008 - 4:43 pm

      Ikut Persona punyer spec tanki penuh 50 liter (Check kat website proton ler) RM2.70 X 50 liter = RM135.00 sahaja…tu pun kalau seblum isi minyak betul2 kosong (Bleh buat ker?)…ahaks

      • #132 by Syukor on July 16, 2008 - 6:47 pm

        Sorry 50 liter tak pasti ler mana dtg maklumat. Bukan dari website proton, mungkin manual book kot.

  96. #133 by Syukor on July 17, 2008 - 8:34 am

    Since AFC(Average Fuel Consumption bukan Asian Food Channel..huh) reading terlalu berbeza antara satu sama lain. Last night I refer to Persona’s manual book. So lepas isi minyak sampai penuh selepas lampu figure pam minyak menyala (Dekat RM95), I reset all type of measuring and calculation dekat meter except jarak perjalanan. At the beginning bila U drive meter L/100km sgt tinggi…cecah 15+ then semakin jauh perjalanan nilai semakin menurun. So last night I dpt 5.3~5.4. I drive 60~80km/h.
    Kalian semua bleh cuba kot?

    • #134 by Ice Cold on November 9, 2008 - 10:46 pm

      My AFC shown 7.0 L/100km when I drove 160 – 180 km/hr. If I contanstly drive 110 – 120 km/hr, it always shown 6.3 – 6.4 L/100km. Usually still under 6.5 L/100km when I drive around KL. Good fuel consumption for Persona, what you all think?

      • #135 by cm on June 17, 2010 - 4:33 pm

        y my persona AFC shown 9.0L/100KM ? lowest is 8.5 only. any problem? FYI my persona is auto.

  97. #136 by persona JKS on July 17, 2008 - 7:54 pm

    tu vios baru rm69k sekali pandang macam persona , kale pun same,

    for persona indicator, ala! at least we know fuel consumption, balance petrol in the tank. dpd meter manual yg dulu .waja pun rasanya tak ade

  98. #137 by AGG on July 18, 2008 - 6:42 pm

    hi folks…thanks for your advice on the colour of the persona. you all dulu order persona berapa lama baru dapat ha? I order dah nak masuk 2 bulan tapi masih tak nampak batang hidung kereta itu. Buat tidur malam tak lena aje….I order kat EON but seems like they have a problem of stock for H-Line la….at the end i told them just give me whatever colour they have in hand except black and white…tapi still tak dapat2 jugak….i rasa proton ada main diskriminasi la dengan EON sebab nak jaga Proton Edar….anyone agreed?

    • #138 by Syukor on July 21, 2008 - 11:15 am

      I raser U kene main dgn saleman ler. U slalu follow-up? Hope U tak bayar lebih utk cepat dpt kereta.

  99. #139 by DrASAG on July 21, 2008 - 8:59 am

    2 bulan tak dpt lagik? i order kat proton edar area batu caves. persona H-line, hitam. dia cakap leh deliver in 1 month. paling lambat 2 bulan. tapi i dapat dlm 3 minggu jer.. 🙂 sbb i slalu kontek dia. hihihihi…

  100. #140 by AGG on July 21, 2008 - 1:22 pm

    Syukor & DrASAG..itulah I tengah garu kepala ni….tapi I just pay the exct 10% deposit jer..tak adalah pulak diaorang mintak lebih2…bestnya DrASAG dapat keta dalam 3 weeks…hai…geram betul la nak tunggu lama-lama ni…buat nyusahkan aku nak buat kerja ja hahaha….ada jugak yang kena bom jap lagi ni muahahaha….tak pa la kalau samapi hujung bulan ni jugak tak dapat2 memang kena lancarkan World war 4th la hehehhe…..

    Setakat ni you all punya Persona ada merengek manja apa-apa tak?

    • #141 by Syukor on July 21, 2008 - 8:07 pm

      Biasanya RM500 duit booking saja. Bila loan dah ok dan nak dpt kereta baru bayar 10% tu. Resit yg U terima tu resit rasmi EON or resit bodoh biasa yg stamp EON? If biasa, confirm dgn manager tempat tu or confirm ngan EON HQ. Jgn plak serang manager tu, dia mungkin tak tau. Kira salesman dia mungkin buat bisnes luar pengetahuan la. Anyway..sabar…ahaks
      Komen pasal Persona – Pls refer prev reply. TQ

  101. #142 by shameer on July 22, 2008 - 11:06 pm

    i just bought b-line model of persona.. Is it any different of engine between b-line, m-line, h-line…is confusing?..b-line looks more like gen2 engine..

    • #143 by Syukor on July 23, 2008 - 10:23 am

      Sama..kecuali U amik yg tak ada IAFM..

    • #144 by AGG on July 23, 2008 - 5:23 pm

      Shameer, why don’t you opt for H-Line cause if I’m not mistaken the different of monthly payment is not so major between m-M-Line and H-Line. It just only eat you for the 10% deosit only. With H-Line, at least you’ll get ABS, EBD, dual airbag and the most dramatic thing is….tadaaa….remote trunk opener…muahkss…ala- Benz gitu….no need to open the door to open the trunk….senang apa…well it just my opinion laa…heheh

  102. #145 by DrASAG on July 28, 2008 - 8:54 am

    hye all… nak tanya sket arr. masa nak isi minyak persona nih. apesal bila tarik picu pam tu, tiba2 dia berenti. benda ni jadik start masa i mula2 nak isi minyak persona tuh. tarik jer picu pam, pam tu stop, macam tu la. apehal eik. so utk isi minyak i kena tarik picu pam tu slow2, baru leh isi, jenuh la kalo isi RM100, berkurun lama la nak tunggu siap. berpeluh jgk la. huhuhu.. bila baca manual, dia ckp kalo nk isi minyak, pastikan muncung pam tu masuk dlm2, then bley isi minyak. dah buat macam tu, takleh gak, apesal eik….

    • #146 by Irwan on July 28, 2008 - 9:15 am

      x penah dgr pulak isu isi minyak. biasenye i just tarik picu slow2 sampai minyak tu dh cukup laju. rasenye klo tarik slow2 dia x stop. bile dh laju, lockkan kunci dia tu.. so blh tinggal je nozzle tu.

      • #147 by DrASAG on July 28, 2008 - 9:29 am

        ooo yer ker. ni start dari mula i beli, sampai skang, kalo isi minyak slalu jd macam tu. maybe la kot, kena tarik slow2 dulu, then baru tarik kuat sket. nnt ar nak try, minyak banyak lagik ni. hehehehe

        • #148 by TePERSONA on July 31, 2008 - 7:24 pm

          DrASAG, Muncung minyak I masukkan sikit saja, sekadar tersangkut kat hujung. So far no problem…nak laju bleh nak slow pun ok.

        • #149 by lehins on June 28, 2009 - 3:15 pm

          oo… itu mungkin masalah terdapat bengkok pada salur minyak, factory defect.. boleh pi tukar kalu masih dalam waranty, maklumat ni saya dapat dari pembacaan dari blog org.. TQ!

  103. #150 by AGG on August 1, 2008 - 2:50 pm

    hahaha ok la tu DrASAG…at least you tau isi minyak…aku ni sampai sekarang lagi tak tau nak isi minyak hehehehe….;pas ni kena pi praktikal jap kat stesen minyak muahahahha………..

    oh yeah by the way…good news, I just got my persona…..light gold colour by the way…boleh lah tu….

    • #151 by DrASAG on August 1, 2008 - 4:14 pm

      kekeke… awatnya tak reti isi minyak, hang ni wat kelakor lak. kekekeke… semalam dah try isi minyak. dah masukkan muncung pam tu, then tarik picu dia slow2, pastu bila dah ok sket, baru tarik kuat sket, ok jer minyak tu masuk, takder lak stop. huhuhuhu… apa la.. kekekeke.. tapi aku tak puas hati lagik, nnt kena try lagik, kalo cara ni jadik, baru puas hati. hehehe.. wawawa tahniah akhirnya dpt jgk ronda2 ngan persona eik AGG. nanti ar kita lumba sama2. kekeke..

  104. #152 by AGG on August 8, 2008 - 5:55 pm

    muahaha DrASAG sekarang aku dah pandai isi minyak la………hahahhaa…tapi masa 1st time kelakao jugak la…selamba je aku pi kaunter cakap kat diaorang aku tak reti isi minyak sebab tak pernah buat pong…terkebil2 mata bebudak SHELL tu…pas tu bolehlak sorang buat lawak tanya aku selam ani pi kerja naik apa…selamba jer la aku jawab naik bas hahaha padan muka aku tanya banyak lagi……..nasib baik diaorang hehehe… the way DrASAG aku lagi tak puas hati sekarang ni sebab baru hari ke-2 aku bwk keta aku dah dicalarkan oleh si bedebah soot mana ntah……..dari lampu belakang (sebelah tepi la) samapai ke depan……….penat aku tonyoh scratch remover malam tu (turtlewax) padam la sket tapi masih lg boleh nampak…hancurnya hati ku ceh siap la kalau aku boleh dapat org yang buat tu nak je aku blender tangan dia baru padan muka dia ….ada sapa-sapa nak join xtvt mem’blender’ ni ka hahaha? heheheh……..

    • #153 by DrASAG on August 11, 2008 - 8:46 am

      uik.. kekekeke… dah calar ka? siannya… kalo dah nampak cat putih tu, mmg tak ilang dah kot calar tu, cuma leh tutup sket2 jer ar… depa toreh ngan apa? duit syiling ka? hehehe.. org cakap kalo beli keta baru, baca2 sket, hehehe… tatau betul ke tak ler… cam aku, ada org ajar la… sediakan air satu baldi kecik tu. bacakan al-fatihah 3 kali, pasti baca setiap surah tiga Qul tu tiga kali, pastu hembuskan air tu. then siramkan air tu start dari pintu depan driver ikut lawan jam, sampai ke pintu depan drebar tu balik. org cakap cara tu, bley elakkan kemalangan yg besar2 ar.. tatau la jgk kan. tapi yg penting, kita sendiri ar kena bawak keta hati2… lagi satu, kita merancang jer, Tuhan yang tentukan… 🙂

  105. #154 by Ron Howe on August 24, 2008 - 11:25 pm

    I think all u Persona owners should take note of this.Yesterday,while waiting inside my car my rear windscreen just shattered under the hot afternoon sun which i think due to extreme hot air outside n cold aircon inside.My advice is when driving in a very day,dont turn ur aircon to very cold.
    Anyway,I will try my best to claim even though it is not under warranty because they have given me a lousy product.It was a least expected incident and very humiliating!

  106. #155 by AGG on August 29, 2008 - 8:10 pm

    Hi there.

    Is all of you facing same ‘rat bite’ sound whenever your aircond is turn on like me?

    I don’t know how to ‘kill that rat’ la….grrr…grrr.grrr….

    not a nice sound inside a nice car…..

    • #156 by TePERSONA on September 11, 2008 - 12:15 pm

    • #157 by zali on September 8, 2009 - 11:03 pm

      Dear AGG,
      The rat bite?
      I think that it is the manifold. Talked to the service person and he says that the problem with Persona is manifold.
      Hope that helps.

  107. #158 by Lina277 on September 12, 2008 - 2:07 pm

    Which is better between the Persona HiLine and Vios J?

    • #159 by TePERSONA on September 18, 2008 - 6:28 pm

      Bergantung kepada berapa byk barang yg U suka nak bawak dlm setiap perjalanan. Banyak kalu Persona.

  108. #160 by amen on September 19, 2008 - 2:53 pm

    i’m owner of persona M- line..
    mmg berbaloi sgt dgn harga if nk compare ngn toyota vios or kete sedan yg lain.. lagi2 lah klu myvi.. dh lah kecik, mhl lak tu..
    yg bestnye persona nie bleh isi brg sebanyak banyaknye..
    aku order dulu 3 mggu jer trus leh dpt kete

  110. #162 by joehan on September 22, 2008 - 11:50 am

    to Lina277..
    buy hline persona than vios J. why..vios J is just like a piece of abs, ebd, air bag, manual side mirror, expensive price tag etc.
    but having hline persona is worth of money as u will have almost everything where every driver dreams of.

    • #163 by TePERSONA on September 22, 2008 - 1:20 pm

      Last Saturday, I pegi servis (Ke-2) kat EON. Tgk Persona SE, cantik ler. Lina 277, pegi ler tengok model tu.

      Ok to AGG, pasal rat bite tu, I dah inform EON, lepas raya mereka akan tukar baru. So to those yg ader problem yg sama, beritau ler kat mekanik masa hantar servis.

  111. #164 by DrASAG on September 23, 2008 - 10:31 am

    terpesona, dia tak cakap ke kenapa bunyik macam tu? and lagik satu kenapa lepas raya baru diaorang nak tukar? sbb sy punya pon ada problem bunyik bunyian tu. huhuhhu.. next sabtu baru nak g servis ke-2…..

    • #165 by TePERSONA on September 25, 2008 - 1:10 pm

      I raser part tu problem kot, kalu tidak kenapa sampai nak tukar, tul dak? Sabtu lepas tu jugak I beritau pasal fin aircond yg rosak kat seblah penumpang, itu pun mereka janji nak tukar lepas raya siap beri no phone orang yg bahagian sparepart lagi utk confirm part dah sampai or belum. Janji lepas raya pasal part tu tak ada kat tempat servis berkenaan. FYI I pegi dekat EON Sungai Petani, Kedah.

      • #166 by DrASAG on September 26, 2008 - 9:38 am

        aiseee…. nak tau gak, part aircond yg nak ditukar tu, under warranty ker? atau kena kuar duit gak… jenuh2…. baru baper bulan pakai, macam2 hal ler…

    currently, i’m really headache with my Gen2..
    sana sini dah rosak..ptg tadi baru je tukar indoor opener & fuel panel..both of them dah patah..baru je 2 tahun pakai kete tu…

    erm..wat to do..suffering lah! need to be more carefull in future..

    • #168 by Pak Pandir on October 7, 2008 - 8:39 pm

  113. #169 by Naiem on September 27, 2008 - 11:42 am

    Tu la pasal. Proton kureng invention compare dgn company keta yg lain. Most design luaran keta proton pun ada dh mcm concept car dh. Smart mmg smart tp mesti ada internal problem utk setiap model.

    Proton kena wat sesuatu yg lebih gempak. Kita pembeli proton ni la yg wat proton trus maju. Hrp diorg ada invent teknologi yg lain dr lain competitor.

    • #170 by Pak Pandir on October 7, 2008 - 8:37 pm

      Tu ler yg proton kene tanggung bila nak sangat tawar harga yg rendah dekat pembeli. Dpt part yg murah tapi kualiti tak terjaga. Ramai pembeli rasa terkena bila dapat barang defect. Nasib baik proton sanggup tanggung segala beban masalah macam ni. Ada gak ler rasa bertanggung jawab…heheh

  114. #171 by AGG on September 29, 2008 - 7:45 am

    DrASAG & TePERSONA , TQ for info….hahahah finally ada pun ‘racun tikus’ tu……….hmmmmmmmm…… korang nak tau tak…….belum sampai 6 bulan aku pakai persona aku tu, mcm2 jalan road divider dia dah sagat…careless la aku ni……….kalau bumper plastic kat bawah tu dah rosak, ada cara lain tak nak repair rather than change a whole part? Tak lah rosak teruk, small part jer kat bahagian paling bawah tapi sedih la jgk sebab terkoyak sikit PVC dia tu………..

    Satu lagi, ni nak tanya soalan cepu emas ni………..minyak kereta brand apa paling bagus? Shell, Petronas, Esso, Caltex? bla…blaaa…

    aku perasan persona tu kalau masuk minyak murah terhegeh-hegeh jer….tapi sekali tonggang RON 97 laju tak ingat dunia…ceh!

    • #172 by TePERSONA on September 29, 2008 - 10:59 am

      Bhg yg pecah tu ko kene pegi riki kat kedai ler kot2 masih bleh touch-up. Nak cakap lebih pun tak tau seteruk mana ko sagat divider.
      Utk minyak plak, kalu aku nak jalan jauh dan laju aku guna Shell yg muncung nyer kaler kuning (Ron 97 ker? Tak taulah aku).. Aku pernah bubuh minyak nie kat Subaru. Aku raser sumer kereta akan dpt effect yg sama…lebih power.

      • #173 by Pak Pandir on October 7, 2008 - 8:43 pm

        Wuiiyoo…ko try minyak muncung kuning tu dekat Subaru WRX STi ker?…mesti berdesup pegi…dan cis-cis bunyi angin…heheheh…

    • #174 by Ice Cold on November 9, 2008 - 10:38 pm

      If you want more power… try v-power (shell). If you want more distance… there isn’t any recommendation. It depends on your driving and your car’s performance. Drive like crazy and your fuel’s consumption become crazy… haha… I know because I work in oil and gas company…

  115. #175 by Doug Sumner on October 18, 2008 - 6:30 pm


    The missus and myself bought the new Persona some 2 months ago in Sarawak…so far we have had the following issues shall we say..

    1) Squeky noise in the back seat.
    2) Main Key broke off while in the ignition!…this has even been compounded furthur by the spare key just about getting the same treatment.
    3) Main handbrake still not working, even after having it fixed twice!!.

    Overall, not a bad car, though one feels for the price paid, Proton have at least short changed me!!. You would think, that at least a rear window wiper could have been added!…they are all noticable on the chaper malaysian cars knocking around!. Just a few minor things…i am semi impressed with it..not as good as my Ford Focus in New Zealand…somehow i feel i should have got the Gen 2!…but i suppose for a Malaysian’s a big step for the company to get this far..and the car has improved a lot since Proton first started. I am hoping i don’t get any other issues, in fairness, their customer service has been excellent…i am glad to see at least they are keen to get the issue/s fixed.

    • #188 by pak pandir on January 6, 2009 - 5:42 pm

      aku beli kat proton edar pun kene juga bro…staff proton edar sendiri main…

  125. #189 by DrASAG on November 27, 2008 - 2:52 pm

    ermmm aku dah kurang lebey 4 bulan pakai persona, H-Line… setakat ni ok, cuma problem kat blower aircond tuh. krek krek krek.. dah 2 kali g servis kat proton servis.. pastu nak claim, dia ckp 3 minggu baru brg sampai. tu pon takleh janji. apa da… takkan 3 minggu tu aku kena tahan dengan benda alah tu. apesal depa tu tak simpan stok kat proton servis, nak kena order lak. keta dlm negara pon ada masalah carik stok ka. tah hapa2…

    • #190 by pak pandir on January 6, 2009 - 5:45 pm

      Aku pun sama…next servis aku tukar..pasal dah order..

      • #191 by Nikm on February 18, 2009 - 11:58 am

        Pak Pandir..
        mintak pndanganlah ckit
        persona aku kuar mgu dpan,wrna Blueberry Tea
        tp aku xpasti lg dgn warna ni
        lg 1..persona sesuai k perjalanan jauh yg bbukit2?
        aku mengajar di Kudat, sabah jarak lbh kurang 45 Km

        • #192 by pak pandir on February 18, 2009 - 12:40 pm

          Nikm, persona nie gear 1 dan 2 dia tak lincah sgt..kureng pecut. kalu ko nak memotong secara cepat biasanya drop gear sampai gear 3. Power stereng kureng galak..sangat sesuai utk highway..especially membelok laju. kalu ko suka cilok2…memang tak sesuai (jenis mat rempit) sebab stereng kurang aktif…kalu honda city..sesuai merempit..pasal stereng dia sensitif…tapi kat highway kereta ni tak selesa pasal rasa stress kat tangan dan lengan…especially membelok laju…aku kurang experience jln2 bukit pasal dok kat utara M’sia yg kebanyakannya tanah rata. Tapi ada ler sikit experience masa pi N. Sembilan hari tu, tak der masalah…even jalan bengkang-bengkok macam ular kene palu macam Balik Pulau pun ok…cuma Persona nie panjang awas waktu membelok..Top speed aku pernah cecah 190km/j tapi aku tak bawak lama…takut siut..laju2 nie…ahaks

        • #193 by pak pandir on February 18, 2009 - 1:00 pm

          nak tambah sikit lagi..minyak penuh bleh jalan lebih kureng 460km…so pandai2 ler budget dengan kelajuan yg ekonomi..heheh

        • #194 by DrASAG on March 19, 2009 - 11:38 am

          190km/j? huhuhuhuhu.. aku sebulan sekali ulang alik trg-kl,lalu LPT… paling laju aku leh pecut 160km/j. aku tekan lagik, cam takleh g jer. huhuhuhu…. latest aku kena tahan dek abg polis, kuikuikui… dia tgk lesen idup lagik, pastu dia cakap, xper ar, 128 jer… nasib, hehehehehe….

    • #195 by nurulfa_ on March 16, 2009 - 10:22 pm

      mmg diorang x simpan stok. stok is money. pastu senang diorang nk kira mana brg claim. pastu bila letak kat central, mana2 proton servis boleh la call.. cakap..”wei aku nk brg tu..cepat tau..aku tunggu..customer aku dh marah ni..huhu”

      • #196 by aku on December 16, 2009 - 8:00 pm

        aku dah try persona aku sampai 180km/j.

  126. #197 by persona JKS on November 30, 2008 - 4:25 pm

    semasa service di pr.edar plentong JB,i tanya dgn mekanik , bunyi bising tu dtg dari sirip econ (loggar) atau blower filter , dan kerusi belakang (yg boleh lipat) kena tape tempat cangkuk tu supaya hilang bunyi.

    • #198 by pak pandir on January 6, 2009 - 5:39 pm

      taruk gris or minyak pun boleh..

      • #199 by persona27 on January 13, 2009 - 4:35 pm

        oo..taruh gris or minyk boleh hilang yekk..
        i dh xlarat nk balut tape dh menatang cangkuk tu..

        • #200 by pak pandir on January 13, 2009 - 5:16 pm

          bhg tu dah berkarat..pasal tu bunyi..ko taruk gris lebih baik…then kalu ko terer lap kering2 then spray cat…kat bhg tu cover bhg karat..misti ok or tahan lama. bunyi lagi..dulu keta iswara lama aku pun sama…

        • #201 by pak pandir on January 13, 2009 - 5:18 pm

    i dh pkai M-Line auto setahun 4 bulan..
    mslh terbaru yg i alami skrg adalah bnyi berdesing kt dpn sebelah pemandu dan bnyi mengaum yg luar biasa kt enjin…
    slow atau laju stll bnyi kadang2 la..yg peliknye bila i tekan brek bnyi tu hilang..lepas brek bnyi balik..
    pergi ke proton servis dia xbunyi la plak..susah la nk explain kt mekanik tu..
    ade sape2 yang alami perkara yg sama ngn i x?
    boleh kongsi bersama…

    • #216 by pak pandir on January 13, 2009 - 5:12 pm

      logiknya bunyi brek ko sangkut ler tu…

    • #217 by pak pandir on March 13, 2009 - 12:25 am

      injin mengaum nie aku pun sama…berbanding iswara lama aku…injin persona dengan agak kuat dari dlm kereta..especialy masa tukar gear 1,2 dan 3…hampir nak sama macam bunyi tukar ekzos bising. Aku pernah habaq kat mekanik..dia kata biasa..dan dia beri aku test kereta lain…standard saja bunyi tu…

    • #226 by pak pandir on March 13, 2009 - 12:13 am

      Servis mahal? ko compare ngan servis keta jenis haper huh? Tingin gak nak tau…pernah ark ko pegi servis kereta toyota…kalu tak..tanya ler sapa2 yg pernah servis..
      Pintu/tingkap rosak…pegi ler complain kat pusat servis..waranti 5 tahun maa….complain cepat..
      Pintu tinggi? Pagi2 seblum pegi keje usung jer bantal tidur ko tu buat lapik bontot…bior tinggi sket…
      Ko beli keta tru internet ker? Heran sungguh…takkan tak cuba dulu seblum order/beli…

    aku pakai kete ni baru setahun……dah tudung minyak patah….ape barang? ko kate pergi claim kan….claim ape sampai 2 minggu….servis lembat laa…..sebab tu la keta kite x ade sambutan……..aku memang2 x puas ati……..

    • #228 by pak pandir on March 13, 2009 - 12:04 am

      Ko tukar ler servis tempat lain..tudung minyak patah amik masa 2 minggu pasal tak der stok ler tu…jarang rosak…kalu selalu problem sure lepas ko kelip mata terus dia letak depan idung…(Banyak stok ler)..

    • #229 by aku on December 16, 2009 - 7:54 pm

      aku pun hairan kenapa tudung minyak persona cepat patah. aku malas nak claim sebab aku tak tau apa yang blh claim. stakat ni aku tengok dah banyak dah persona mcm tu, kancil 10 thn pun tak mcm tu. lg pun dulu aku claim power window proton ckp tak dpt, jd apa yg blh. tak ada kualiti.

    • #236 by AkuWady on April 8, 2009 - 4:03 pm

      aku dah pakai persona Mline AT sejak Oct 2007. so far masalah besar yang kena…power window belah driver… bila tekan auto open.. dia turun and pastu ada bunyi mechanical. pastu xleh naik terus…g SC diorang tukar terus..under warranty. tapi skang problem yang ada bunyi rattling bila pasang aircond.. dia bunyi bila tima pasang aircond drive 20 to 40km/j and 110 to 130km/j.. tensen gak…

      lagi satu bila jalan kat bumper…ada squeaking sound kat pintu blakang….

      lagi satu … air cuci cermin depan slalu leaking….

      but so far aku satisfied ngan persona aku… aku dh tukar rim.. pasang mugen nyer spoiler.. tinted gelap sume lampu..dah la keta hitam…bulan depan plan nak taruk R3 nyer skirting… insyaalah

      • #237 by pak pandir on June 19, 2009 - 11:01 am

        squeaking sound kat belang tu..aku raser penyangkut seat belakang kot..kete ko bleh lipat seat belakang kan?? sapu gris sikit kat tempat tu…mungkin dah karat.

    tapi aku duk pikir2 balik harge samer jer macam pesona M-line.. maner satu aku patut pilih…..
    pesona atau myvi…
    tu jer yang mampu mampu bayar bulan2…

  149. #243 by hau on April 21, 2009 - 11:31 pm

    kalau beli persona, 1.6, myvi 1.3 saje. lagipun, space persona more than myvi. i dah 1 bulan pakai persona m-line. secara keseluruhan, i puas hati. bagi exora pula, cuma satu komen, takut exora under power coz baru 1.6 saje untuk tarik mpv yang muat 7 orang dan luggage.
    anyway, ia bergantung kepada nasib juga bagi memiliki kereta baru sama ada ia bermasalah tidak. tak kira kereta local or import.

    • #245 by pak pandir on June 19, 2009 - 10:55 am

      myvi pemanduan tegak…selesa..nak kuar dan masuk kereta senang…tapi 1.3 saja. Anyway aku pernah try dgn kereta iswara 1.3 aku. myvi power lebih sikit. walaupun aku masa tu tekan minyak dah sampai nak berdiri…(tekan abis ler tu..heheh) myvi 1.3 nie sep minyak kalu ko spesis bawak perlahan…ok laa…kalu laju2 tak jimat sgt pun..lebih kureng mcm 1.6 ler…cuma 1.6 ko bwk laju sikit…tekanan kureng pada enjin…so biasa jer effect ke atas penggunaan minyak…kelebihan persona..ruangan barang cukup besar..kalu ko dah kahwin..Persona antara kereta murah yg aku suggest…servis pun murah/mampu. pemanduan pun selesa…especially membelok laju…:P

  150. #246 by Halim Tsiang on April 30, 2009 - 11:18 pm

    I’m from Indonesia, and Proton has just re-entered this past 3 years. I’m quite intrigued by Persona, especially with the IAFM version. Anyone has any idea about how the IAFM Campor version fare against the conventional Campro?

    Been wondering why it’s never been compared with Vios, City, or Suzuki Baleno?

  151. #247 by KE on May 13, 2009 - 4:43 pm

    just nak mintak ur opinion, Persona it really worth the extra they charge? ke lagi elok amik Hi or M line?


  152. #248 by chris on May 15, 2009 - 5:11 pm

    Actually proton does cekik darah. well the concept is getting better because they dont have a choice thats wat their sepos to do, its just that they are still slow. Malaysian cars can be way cheaper if this is all we get trust me and to me this is the least problem the people are mistreated with.. no offence this is my home and where i want to die but with this mindset, move strategies, concept of government and leaders we all will be murdered sooner or later. we are over due if u ask me.. and heres somethings from the insights with all this years and after calculations, malaysian cars can actually be sold for RM2000 new and they will face no loss. too good to be true? if you have a brother who wouldnt lie and is in high post and who has a good calculation ask him to check it out with the papers. Seriously you got to burn money for them to disapear. Good luck Malaysia!

    Hi Brother,

    Saya baru je beli Persona highline 1.6 auta pada 30 jun 09 dan bila saya check semua aksesori, dua benda saya tak jumpa. 1. Navigator system dan 2. Palam pencucuh api (rokok)

    Bila saya tanya salesman, dia kata terlupa nak bagi Navigator system.Dia juga kata kereta persona memang tak de Palam pencucuh api (rokok).Betul ke ini ? tolong explain kat saya kalau ada brother brother yand ada same model ngan saya.

    Saya juga dapati bumper belakan tak dilekat rapat-rapat, macam skru tak ada.Bila saya tanya salesman, dia suruh saya bawa service center…leceh betul lah.

    Tapi overall saya puas dengan kereta persona sebab berbaloi wang saya…cuma ada masalah kecik kecik je yang buat saya tension…

    • #264 by aku on December 16, 2009 - 8:31 pm

      palam pencucuh memang tak ada sbb kerajaan malaysia kempen anti merokok

    I’m planning to get a car soon but can’t make up my mind on Persona, Vios or City? Frankly, i’m in love with Persona’s outlook but if compare value for performance which one’s better? Please advise!

    • #266 by daniel on August 19, 2009 - 3:02 pm

      go for vios or city.
      dont let the persona outlook cheating you.
      proton natural defects is quality issue after 3-6 years sure have.(depends your luck)
      dont think the small small part issue is not a issue, think can close one eye but actually the small part issue is to cost you money time to time.

      • #267 by Lil on August 19, 2009 - 4:58 pm

        Thanks Daniel for the advise, but now i’m also considering Nissan Latio. How’s is it compare to Vios and City?

          fully support you to go nissan latio. interior is spacious.
          as long as not protons…waste money, waste interest paid to bank.

    Hi Everyone,

    I just feeling really satisfied with the Proton persona that i just bought 2 weeks ago..i had drove the car and found that its really cool and smooth..really worth it..those who are planning to buy proton persona, i recommned you to buy..its really had me happy so far and good job proton as proton can be equal with other imported cars…

    • #271 by daniel on August 19, 2009 - 3:08 pm

      ya , you will satified because its only 2 weeks old.
      you bought car not drive for 2 weeks, 2 month or 2 yrs.and for those buy persona and pay 7-9 yrs loan. this is not encourage.
      fuel consumption is important. engine life also , proton engine always happen over heating after couple of years.
      and suspension problem starting too.. like bust,lower arm,water pump, meter not working. etc.

  166. #272 by Yeo on July 16, 2009 - 12:33 am

    Hi all,

    I felt disappointmented about persona. Because as i understand petrol full tank is 50 lite mean based on current price is about RM90 for full tank but my persona even i drive until calculation of the petrol is show “—” but i only can fill about 36 to 37 lite and then full cannot already. I wonder this 50 lite is true?

    I tested to fill about RM68 about 35 lite and travel from Muar to KL and back half-way about 400 and estimate still can run 50km. Based on this calculation the petrol is about 1.5 it is quite expensive which most of time i run in highway.

    And my air-con also got funny funny sound.

    I really really felt sad to proton.

  167. #273 by Motor Gal on July 22, 2009 - 12:29 pm

    Just some thoughts about Proton car models and it’s brand: think that this car manufacturer has done it’s best to promote different car models and due to the its small distribution, it’s not able to finance better designers to work on the aesthetics of their car…or at least it seems so to me. Certainly, when compared to Japanese cars or European cars, Proton is still far off, yet I feel that they’ve owned their niche very well and have even got a small acceptance in the overseas market. I believe Proton does not intend to be a world leading car manufacturer as they do not invest heavily in R&D, and most of their major car parts are adopted from proven technologies bought from other auto giants.

  168. #274 by Wan on July 25, 2009 - 12:34 am

    Today is the 4th month of my car MLine 9000km, the experience were:
    1. In around 1000km, driver’s door and right passenger door suddenly opened by itself when driving. First time was the passenger door on the highway just before Jelapang toll construction north bound, and the driver’s door on kampung Bachok, Kelantan road. Lucky got the safety lock half way door opened.
    2. Had complained to Proton Edar service during 5000km service about the doors, but mechanic cannot find fault. Suddendly after drove for less than 5km after left the service centre, the driver’s door opened again when driving normal road at Bukit Kemuning Shah Alam. Whatthe….
    3. Last few days, realized the next/skip button on steering was doing changing Mode to CD/Radio, it was working fine before.
    4. Cracking loud sound on right front when bumped on even small hole or making turn.
    5. Shaking mirrors. Any ideas on fixing this?

  172. #282 by daniel on August 19, 2009 - 11:40 am

    if you go persona (what ever line) better go vios j type.
    can enjoy low interest,no small part failure issue.
    fuel consumption guanrantee lower than proton engine. somemore proton engine normaly up to 5-7 years will facine over heating. then suspension problem. all this problem will cost you money. and not guarantee after changed can tahan how long.perhap few month or lucky 1 1/2 years.
    persona outlook can cheat consumer but their quality issue is forver have.

  173. #283 by daniel on August 19, 2009 - 11:46 am

    for those who want to buy persona, car loan should not above 5 years. because after 4-5 years, the small small part starting cost you money..
    if want to go 7-9 yrs loan , be smart consumer buy vios j type. japanese brand car dont have small part issue.

  174. #284 by daniel on August 19, 2009 - 11:49 am

    persona engine is outdate. what their have campro type, etc. to me all these is bullshit.
    overall is just a dohc engine. and 4-5 years engine will over heating too.

  175. #285 by kumar on August 19, 2009 - 9:50 pm

    Your feedback is not 100% all depends on how the car is maintain..i have more than 2 national car and its more than 5 years and yet the performance is much good…I even have friends and family members who are using proton persona more than 2 years and it seems to be running cool.Imported cars are good in away as it is expensive and malaysian cars such as persona is better and doing better now.Malaysian cars are manufactured to meet the local people needs as it is affordable and not everyone can buy imported cars as it is expensive compare to our local made cars.

    I think we should encourage our national car and those who wants to buy persona, its better for u to do survey rather than listening to what people say..try to approach those who are already using persona and ask them..even i will say go for is really worth it …..

  176. #286 by daniel on August 20, 2009 - 5:11 pm

    you got 2 national car which above 5 years, and persona 2 years.
    i got 12 years old proton wira.
    the car problem started 7 years old. and my wira is consider good QC because my wira manufacture year is 1997 at that time proton still partner with mitshubishi.
    but now i sold it and buy city. at 1st i not want to sell it.but i cant tahan every month change part cost me few hundreds. in this few years i had changed suspension parts, air cond parts, radiator system , top overhaul.
    body start leaking. rear boot enter rainwater tru rear lamp gasket.actually 12years old car is not that old.
    if we see other japanese car. they dont have this small ill happen.
    No..foreigner car is quality is not because expensive. what the price now is because after those duty tax by our good government.
    city , vios can deal in below 70k if less some duty tax

    • #287 by kumar on August 20, 2009 - 11:20 pm

      Anyway imported cars are better in quality terms and if you compare proton cars..the proton cars are still slightly behind due to the QC (quality control)…but i beleive our national car will be in good level soon or the way Daniel thx for your comments and hope you can advice on how we tackle issue on our proton cars in terms of faulty parts since you already have proton car which is older than mine.i also wanted to buy a honda at first place,but after considering, eventually i bought proton persona.yet no regret as life goes on… 🙂

  177. #288 by Yap on August 26, 2009 - 4:02 pm

    Persona is a great car, Especially the handling is so good. It is really worth to buy it

  178. #289 by cli on August 30, 2009 - 10:07 pm

    My Persona is 6mths old..i had this cranking sound each time i went over a bump. Recently it got last service (5k) the mechanic at the SC said they are unable to fix it n ask me to go to one of those major proton SC to rectify it… any u guys have the same problem? is it really repairable? Pls share, thanks!

  179. #290 by Wan on September 1, 2009 - 4:21 pm

    Mine also got that sound, right front side, maybe somewhere inside the body. Ever told to mechanic, he said already tighten something, but then still got the sound.. not yet go for further check though..

  180. #291 by cli on September 3, 2009 - 9:32 pm

    sigh, yes mine also from the front right. My area SC’s mechanic did do some works on it but still the sound persist and my subsequent visit they just take the easy way out by refering me to some major SC in Bandar Utama area…sigh i suppose this so call small sc earn much more in an hr doing normal servicing then solve my problem…

  181. #292 by Jack Chua on September 12, 2009 - 8:29 pm

    I do not understand what is Proton doing.

    If crime is rising and car thefts are increasing, why put in a GPS system (B-SMart) that will drain your car battery in one week?

    Is Syed Zainal thnking properly or does he have a hidden agenda?

    Perhaps MACC should investigate him.

  182. #293 by naivesick on September 13, 2009 - 9:29 pm

    Problem with Msian products especially cars is the volume.. it is not that proton makers dont wanna make it cheap but local material that made our proton is a tad more expensive than what we wanted it more to be. Foreign cars got volume on their side thus making it possible to make it a little cheaper.. Yes the tax imposed doe makes the price higher.. but buddy, nothing is cheap nowadays..

    But it is your choice.. foreign cars is better than our local cars no doubt.. but if i buy local, i would support the supporting industries for proton which is out other local companies.. i wouldn’t be surprised if you work for one of this company..

    I believe our local products including proton has potential to go far.. and as a Malaysian i would certainly do my part to support it and suggest improvement for them to do that.

    Pada pendapat saya, Proton persona ok jugak.Bcoz ianya 1.6 dan lebih selesa (sizenya).Saya pun kerap travelling dari kl ke far my persona ok je dan saya memang puas..But try survey ngan member-member lain sebelum beli…lain org lain pendapatnya..thx

  186. #298 by Elfaridz on October 8, 2009 - 11:39 am

    H i All…..

    the persona is impressive in many ways, however, it has it weaknesses just like any other car.i could have bought a vios or a new city but i when for a persona coz it is as good, and its obviously cheaper.. the car is damn good and the so call ‘noises’ cant make it any less. the performance of the 1.6 iafm auto engine is excellent. fuel consumtion for a 1.6 a very good. i really dont know what are they complaining about?
    i took the car for a test after the ‘pantang’ period. KL to Bentong in 40 min at an average of 120 km/h. the gear up shift was excellent, all though the down shift is probably 0.0005 sec slower or a tad slower. but it goes unnotice after a speed for that drive was 170 km/h. it was a great running in test drive. the suspension is great. check it out, i was driving with both my mum and dad in the car and my mum was like sound a sleep at the back.
    that goes to proof that the proton persona is a beautiful car people..

  187. #299 by desperado on October 8, 2009 - 12:05 pm

    hmmm, baru keluar my persona,
    1st day masa test drive dah boleh dengar air cond punya bunyi macam tikus , masa tanya sale gal tu, terus suruh gua bawa pi utk service, hellllooo kereta baru gua bawa for less the 5min ler, aduhi tension , k tak pa tu satu kes, then masa balik try wipper , air wipper tak keluar pulak, hmm no choice dah next day pi service center, mamat tu dtg and ketuk something kat bawa kereta tu then air wipper keluar, tanya pasai air cond noise, dia kata normal benda tu, WTF right, k nvm la, then went for 1st service , then try long way drive to KL,notice that masa bawa kereta on highway about 140KM, the stering macam too easy to move around, not like my dads waja, heavy and can knw that u are still on control when driving fast also, but persona macam driving on the angin, naik kia masa bawa the persona tu.and do any of u guys knw where to update the GPS map thing?till today i think GPS is kind of crap, one day i tested it and then i took a short cut terus GPS tu senyap nvr mention anything else after i took the short cut, damn pening also ler.but overall i am ok with the car ler, just kind of down when a new car start to give problem as fast as this even it is small issues.and i notice the car engine , mak ai sound macam kapal terbang so loud certain time, and i notice da car got makan minyak also ler hmm but surely better the my dad’s waja ler,

  188. #300 by kumar on October 9, 2009 - 5:27 am

    Hi desperado,

    I also had the problem with the aircond after 1 month using the car. When i brought the car to the service center the tecnician mentioned its due to the aircond host pipe..they mentioned that they need to order the parts and will replace for free. So after all its under warranty.About the GPS, it is really working good for me as i dont seems to have problem at all..if you need help on how to use it please contact the below number and also you can update the map from this website hopes it helps you..

    bagi yang ada persona, tutup tangki mesti letak gris supaya tak patah. mula2 tutup tangki rasa ketat tu sebenarnya engsel tak bergerak, yang bergerak adalah besi penahan lama2 buka tutup tu yang patah.

And the service center staff can’t help any to repair. I buy proton cus is only cheap. Currently my brother driving myvi he said the car is best, the engine sound is soomth on problem at all.

  205. #327 by Chong on April 12, 2010 - 8:01 pm

    Never never buy proton!!! I have a persona (bought Oct 09). I am totally disappointed!! Problems:-
    1. Wiper start to shake and can be easily taken out!!
    2. everytime i step down from the car, yik yok sound!!
    3. When i turn my steering, again yik ok sound!!
    4. when driving down bumpy road and turning, the steering start to kling klong!!
    5. the brake, when you brake, it starts to yiiii …
    6. the front dash board, when you turn the air con to max, or drive more than 100km/hr, you’ll hear tik tak sound (like raining!!)
    7. back seat got tiny tik tik sound on and off!!

    The worse part is I went for all these repair work 4 times already!!! and they only manage to fix problem no. 1 (somemore is after I have taken the car and found that the problem is still there and i drove straight away to their workshop at the back and supervise them to fix again!!! Malaysia BOLEH!!)

    And everytime i told the service counter guy of these problems, they seemed so relax that they have known all these problem already, and told me its because of this la that la. but why they can’t fix it?

    ha, let me tell you, like the brake problem, he said because the brake rubber piece is MADE IN MALAYSIA, only RM 30, if you wan the problem to be solved permanently, you need to change the original one RM 300 (from Japan, ha?? I tout proton is made in malaysia one, so original should be made in malaysia, why suddenly original become Japan??)

    There just soooooooooo many problem with it, not to mention the blood sucking engine and bad sound insulation (u drive 100km and above, u will have to turn your radio much louder). Haiii…. tired of the car d. Eventhough it’s only 5 mths, already like 20 years. I am selling off the car and getting a 2nd hand car (not proton definitely!!)


    • #328 by kumar on April 15, 2010 - 2:16 pm

      I am one of persona 2009 model and so far i dont have any major problem.I am satisfied for wht i paid for the car.

    Kumar didnt have any major problem so far. Are you saying that you did have minor problems (a lot?). There is a problem in terms of QA (so still got quality problem); again so far no big issues (means lots of small issues?) amid it, it’s not as good as you said it is.

    You don’t really paid lower price for the car. It’s the tax that you have paid lower, not the car. Take away the tax price and you’ll find that you are paying damn high for a car with such quality!!

    You might not be happy, you just got used to it d. Just like Proton gets used to all the complaint from their customers!!

    • #331 by kumar on April 16, 2010 - 10:35 am

      Hi Chong,

      I am not getting used to it as i am just satisfied for what i paid.

      As for me i didnt notice the problem with that car as you mentioned.I too been using proton and perodua cars for years.I think your car might need to be taken again for service check and really escalate to them.

    hi guys,
    I like get some info on proton saga BLM and persona. i plan to buy proton cars. currently i using MYVI 1000cc already going to 5 years. as point of me MYVI cars also have QC problem since i buy i sending this car to SC to repair and the spare parts are relay killing me. since day one i have repair noise at Tyre SC still not able to solve this problem. air-con not cool after six month specially when you drive long destined and now getting worst. The exzos make noise like the pipe sharking every early morning. even you worm up the engine. my clutch plate getting hard (after 1 year+++) need to change clutch plate cost you round (rm600). O2 sensor faulty engine light always ON price cost of the sensor is RM380 with engine tuning. back Absorber faulty after 1 year ++++ cost of the part is (RM 230 include installation).Cost of changing timing belt , bearing , oil bush , power staring belt, air-con belt cost around RM500 (the price relay expensive compare to proton parts)…….and so ONNNNNNN…… all the this parts i change at NORMAL WORKSHOP not at SC . because SC not able to solve my problem even my car in warranty. so i go for out local workshop. …..This may happen to my car only you may get info from other MYVI user.

  211. #337 by leo lee on June 14, 2010 - 11:43 am

    I just bought persona medium line last 4 months!!! If i knew PERSONA got so many problems so i wouldn’t buy it, REALLY REGRETTTTT!! Both front left & right windows got “crick crack” sound when i 1st brought the car home! REGRET that i didnt check at the 1st place!! Aft one week the radio hang pulakk!!! No matter how i pressed the buttons it didnt working at all!! Even i off down the engine but the radio still on with lightings. Gosh, macam ada hantu!!! At last i plugged out the battery then plugged in again then could work alrd!!! Aft abt 1 month the brake got “tak tak tak” sound pulakk!!! Then follow by aircorn sound, front “boxed covers” sound!!! The sound REALLY annoying when i drive in highway!!! REALLY wanna burn the car then send it to hell!!! When i checked the aircon at an authorized PROTON in JB the guy told me very STUPID answer!!! He said:” Memang macam tu mesti ada suara punya!! Kalau u tak puas hati u boleh datang next time!!” What the hell!!! VERY ANGRY!!! Really wanted to smack him!! Haizzz, does anyone has the same problem as mine pls reply me i really want to chit chat with u!!! PLZZZZ!!!!!!!!!! So my advise is if u got choice pls dont buy proton persona!!

    • #338 by leo lee on June 14, 2010 - 11:57 am

      Does anyone know how to complain to persona company????? ii really dissatisfied the car!!! Can i refund the car!??!! PROBLEMS PROBLEMS PROBLEMS!!!

      • #339 by pak pandir on July 15, 2010 - 3:33 pm

        Cuba hantar kat pusat servis proton yg lain, atau EON. Mereka cuma repair kereta, bukan pasang kereta. Use a really good and nice word to them and hopefully all the problem solve. My car also got problem but already solved. Anyway good luck!

  212. #340 by pak pandir on June 24, 2010 - 8:44 pm

    hi, aku baru pakai viva full spec kaler oren sejak january 2010. bumbung leaking masa hujan atau basuh – dah repair. radio kereta rosak- dah siap repair, tapi blum ambik lagi pasal aku masih kat italy. mmm…harap tak dak lagi masalah lain. anyway viva sangat jimat kalau jalan2 dalam pekan. untuk perjalanan jauh, hati aku masih dengan PERSONA B-LINE kesayangan aku tuh…heheh. Sampai sekarang dah 2 tahun pakai, aku dapati minyak semakin jimat. untuk tank penuh kereta aku boleh pi sampai 500 lebih km berbanding dulu. aku memang selalu hantar servis kat EON. Tak berani aku hantar dekat kedai bukan2. pilih spanar pun salah. ngeri2…

  213. #341 by pak pandir on June 24, 2010 - 9:06 pm

    Aku ada benda nak syer dgn korang semua, ni antara tips nak dpt kereta perodua baru dlm keadaan baik. Hampa semua kena servey bila staf perodua dapat bonus tinggi. Time tu kereta2 yg depa pasang dlm keadaan baik, sebab depa sgt happy dapat duit byk. Jgn terus attack salesman bila dpt kereta tak bagus, sebab depa cuma jual kereta saja…bukan pasang kereta. Mulut depa sentiasa manis macam gula. Nak tinted free, spoiler free pun depa sanggup adakan…tapi aku tak tau pulak pasal Proton. Ada sapa2 nak komen?

  214. #342 by bhullar on August 10, 2010 - 12:04 am

    VERY HIGH PETROL CONSUMPTION for a 1.6 IAFM engine. It is 21 cents a km. Better to pay the extra 20K to buy a Vios.

  215. #343 by MEMEY on August 24, 2010 - 9:09 am

    i’m in dilemma either to buy vios or persona,huhu.want vios but it is pricier than persona.but after all complaints heard about persona, i dont know which one sud be bought for this coming raya, it really a very high fuel consumption?or it is depends on one’s luck je sbb ade je komen gtau minyak kete jimat je..huhu..

  216. #344 by Lyrxxx on September 30, 2010 - 12:48 pm

    about 1 month . i have one persona..

  217. #345 by Sheerona on October 6, 2010 - 4:44 am

    Grabus, don’t talk too soon. I was thinking on the same line as you, but wait till your car is 1 or 2 yrs old, then you’ll be talking differently. 5 yrs warranty? you better go ask what exactly does the warranty covers. I did and I felt so cheated. My stupid Persona before one year, battery konk, and they say no warranty because my milleage just exceeded 10k. Then brake pad problem, just changed 3 mths ago and now it’s broken again. Normal brake pad is RM67.71 excluding labour, but no warranty. Advised me to use Bosch which comes with 6 mths warranty, guess how much… RM350!! I ask technician if he ever come across cases like this, he said first time, it’s my luck…
    Then there’s a problem with the tyre bearing and needs to be changed, RM154 plus labour RM35, again no warranty.
    Apart from this, other problems include the air cond, got hantu. It comes on and off on it’s own, bila suka. Sensor pun problem. Brought to workshop to change and they scratched my bumper, now got one long line. Made complaint, they say bring back we check. I dare not, wait they add a few more lines.
    Not forgetting the frustration when dealing with the workshop. Call them till the cow comes home nobody pick up the line, or they pick it and put down again so the ringing doesn’t bother them. After that you can never get them on the phone again. Call at the wrong time, they’re having tea break. Typical lah. This will never ever happen at Toyota workshop.
    It has been 20 yrs and their service and quality leaves much to be desired. Will I still buy a Proton next? NEVER AGAIN! Don’t want to be a fool twice! Lots of people ask me, I say never buy Proton. So whether you want to be a fool or not, I say up to you, try your luck if you dare. Thank you.

  218. #346 by Yk on October 16, 2010 - 5:59 am

    Yes, i agreed with Sheerona, what is the 5 years warranty covers?? I’ve a two years plus Persona, just after 4 mths, the dashboard got bubbles, driver side door water leak in. After another month or 2, car boot can’t open with remote and then radiator leak and worst no WARRANTY. When reaching a year front disk drum not even need to be changed and same as Sheerona kena RM350 just for the brake pad. Just after 1 1/2 years, power window konk again no warranty! Then, front bearing got sound, send to Proton Edar to check waited whole day and no mechanic said no problem. Went to another services centre and found the bearing konk and no warranty also. why? wear and tear part warranty not cover. So what is the warranty covers??? do you still want a Proton??

  219. #347 by Aaa on October 29, 2010 - 4:20 am

    Cant say much,but u gotta understand u pay that price for that kind of quality.
    Even 1 out of 10 benz got problem.Just see who unlucky.

  221. #349 by Naramiro on November 24, 2010 - 12:45 pm

    Im also driving the persona since thats the only car within my budget. Well not so surprise with the 5 years warranty since it is only cover for engine. and the other parts of car still come with 2 years or month(s) warranty as usual proton cars. And also the warranty not cover for plastic or rubber parts. FYI, most of proton cars they wont deliver to the customer with the alignment done etc. So, just make sure that after get the car u need to do the alignment by ur own. And one of the mechanic did told me that most of Proton cars will use “skru mati” to the tyres instead of flexible screw (that can save ur tyres for easily “haus” or “botak”). I did change mine.

    dissapointed with proton..i bought my proton persona half year the car is spoil..repaired and take spoils again..then send back to proton…check for around 10 days..they only know what spoil..and have to wait for another around 1 week – 3 week more for the that the type of quality proton gives to the customer??really dissapointed with it..

    proton…Im proud to have a proton made car… however when u re facing a problem and sent over to near authorized workshop for repairing and change parts which is still under warranty, they will giving you a tonne of excuse/ reason which not as they re promised.
    Proton need to fix this up asap….
    One thing’s i regrets with proton… the export quality/ features is different made for locals why ?
    Please answer ?

  225. #353 by Faudzi on January 2, 2011 - 3:13 am

    my persona have just covered 5thousand it failed to start,worst still after getting all luggage on ready to leave to KL. Never I have felt most disgusting, I feel most regret for trading in my 15yr old nissan which never gave me such trouble.

  226. #354 by MJ on January 18, 2011 - 3:52 am

    I am thinking of buying Pesona HL but with the negative comments, I am thinking twice. I can accept that in a batch of 10 maybe one is faulty even in high branded car, but the problem lies with the warranty and the backup service provided from Proton as mentioned by some of you. It is either non-existent or take too long. Again is this isolated case only or most of Proton service center is as bad. Where can I find the warranty statement in Proton web-site. How good is the mileage? For example, how much is cost you if travel from JB to KL?

  227. #355 by Janxxx on January 20, 2011 - 5:57 pm

    i have using persona M-Line for two years..i’m satisfied with the car..never let me down until now..always send my car to proton centre when the time come,.my mileage already 40K and now i’m in thinking to upgrade my engine from campro to mivec or any type of engine that suitable to persona..last month i’ve already buy full body kit R3 for my lovely persona..maybe for me money is not the always look the way we drive..if we drve like a crazy one, easy said no car will suit your need except 4×4, or maybe next time buy lorry, maybe it fit ur need..selalunya org yg xsuka proton trpksa amik proton gak sbb kekangan kewangan..dah ada persona sebijik, vios sebijik & unser sebijik..nak ape lg..pndai beli kena pndai jaga ar..tau guna jer xguna..

  228. #356 by persona user on January 23, 2011 - 2:24 pm

    ei~do u all the persona user have tis problem?! my persona’s door is so fucked~when u open it~thr got a “click, kak”sound~it really annoying~and then maybe the road has many holes~when u passed through the holes~the door will hv “jit chat” sound out~tis gv me safelessness when i drive my car~

    do u face tis problem ?

  229. #357 by John Doe on January 27, 2011 - 9:19 am

    Yes no doubt that every Tom Dick and Harry is comparing perodua and proton. To me its a matter of what you like. I personally like the design, interior and price tag on a proton car. To me it makes a different when space comes to play comparing with perodua’s compact car. Not to compare, but like i said, its personal likings.

    I own a persona elegance HL for 6 months now. Previously was a saga, merdeka edition.
    Pros :
    Extremely spacious. Great leather. Fun to drive. Very stable. Great sound system. Dashboard meter is stunning. Spacious boot. Value for money for the price i pay.

    High Petrol Consumption. QC issue, replace rubber visor on my left side just after 3 days, then i notice, quite obvious that they are either blind or definitely no QC control. High rev when your engine is cold in the morning.

    Either then that, its really great to have the car if you ask me. It is not as bad as most of you out there think it is due to the flooding comments online. My aunt uses a Gen 2 and it is problemless and my mum and cousins uses Proton New FL, so far no problem and my friend uses a persona 2008, only problem is the sound in the breaks. Either then that its alright. So, my questions is, do you really own those cars to comment and furthermore i have so many relatives who uses proton and do not face those type of problems that everyone is claiming. Perhaps its just your luck in getting those cars or you guys are fussy over small problems. I believe that, you guys are paying for something which is not up to Japan’s standard and thus the complain. People tend to compare proton with second hand Honda and Toyota which i think is ridiculous.

    Moving forward, perodua has problems of their own as well. Although there are lesser problems, but if you notice the QC is not as fantastic as everyone claims as well. I am not saying that its not a good car, it is still worth to buy but to me, i dont like the plastic interior for the price i pay 45k and it still looks plastic and small. Its good for female drivers especially parking and all, but its too girlish for a guy to drive that car and thus me buying a proton persona for the same price. To me, perodua is not worth the price. Super downfall of the car is that, there is no boot!! How can i put things when i need the space. That car should cost 40k for HL, then i will say its worth the money. Its 55k for HL, ridiculous.

    Concluding, its actually a matter of opinion and your personal liking.

    I bought a second hand H-line Persona (blueberry-tea colored) four moths earlier, and I enjoy every seconds of driving it. The initial owner bought it in April 2009, and so far , fortunately, no problem whatsoever, save for the minor things like low rattling sound from dashboard. Oh, I live in Jakarta, Indonesia, so it must be the export version, yes ? The engine is more than enough for city driving , even when compared to other brand of automobile found here. Comes with safety features such as dual-airbag, ABS, EBD, etc. for the same price as other brand that’s equipped with less features. Torque problem should be handled with the change of driving style and get-to-know the car’s “character” better. Have I mentioned that it’s fun to drive and has great handling ?

  235. #363 by bhullar on March 12, 2011 - 1:37 pm

    Go ahead and buy a persona, but do remember it is a petrol guzzler. With the price of petrol sure to go up, think again. My Merc C200 has better consumption than a Persona!

    the click kak sounds is normal all have one and jit chat sound is common problem, its the sound when the metal hook? on your backseat clicking when u passed through the holes ,just open the backseat and tape it.

  238. #366 by encik syah on May 11, 2011 - 3:50 am

    hi everybody.

    better u choose persona compared than myvi if you care a lot about handling performance. it is because, persona’s handling performance is superb. Myvi handling is okay but from my experience in driving so many cars such as perdana, waja, gen2, iswara super tank, myvi also, kancil, honda, toyota and others related, i think proton handling is really superb. Like mitsubishi handling could be. In addition, myvi still have problems of absorber, there will be some sound will appear and we can hear precisely when driving on district road. By the way, off course honda handling is superb but it too costly to us as malaysian.

    anyway, that is my opinion only.
