According to Proton, they said it is due to emission and to reduce fumes during initial start. They have to do this due to emission standard.

The sluggish was not present in Exora CFE.

Most old proton drivers have never experience abs before.

so they think its a problem. cause normally when they hard brake, confirm bang cock the car infront already.

They have the same expectations for their new cars also tongue.gif

Nope, I am fence sitter.

When I said I want to get Preve, my family disagreed. But anyhow, I will only decide by the end of the year.

Ill be frank.

Even inspira, which they down right copy also can have problems.

Let alone something this morons built from the ground up.

Give it another 2 or 3 batches for them to resolve everything.

They have very poor qc, very reactive methods to handing a problem rather than preventive.

i like this is why the car comes with 5 years warranty...anything, just send to SC to change for free

and u should hang out more in FnF's Preve club/thread
not come here and complain cannot fix

Dont buy proton models for the first year. dunno what problems it has, and proton will not replace it for you even if there is known problem.
you can go SC, they will replace this replace that but problem still re-occur...

1. is not turbo lag or CVT lag or whatever lag lah. Its the overly retarded throttle response tuned by Proton. 2nd batch onwards the throttle response is much better. Most people have this conclusion after driving the test drive unit because the test drive units are the first batch Preve.

turbo is from reputable company...how can it kaput so easily
hoses and part are all from reputable company like denso and bosch..won't spoil so easily
the thing for proton is...all of them are minor problem/inconvenience only...rarely got major problem

turbo is from reputable company...how can it kaput so easily
hoses and part are all from reputable company like denso and bosch..won't spoil so easily
the thing for proton is...all of them are minor problem/inconvenience only...rarely got major problem
*
i think only temporarily from a reputable company (B & W right?)

before some kroni from random state come in and say :

"My company can do that!we are positive about it!grant us the job to supply the turbo!"

yes...borgwarner
and no..its actually permanent now...proton system now different than last time already
last time after 1st batch, all the part also want to locally made to save cost
proton now dn't do that already...proton now let the company do the manufacturing and supplying already
when proton want part, they call the company thn only the company make
and the warranty also back to the company itself already
that mean if theres anything wrong, borgwarner will be responsible
in this way, the part will be better quality cuz that company's reputation is on the line not proton
and proton won't loss money when many part start to fail...all will link back to the supplier's company(which is borgwarner or etc etc)
simply said, all the blame will be taken by the part's company, not proton

just get it la...u thought buying other brand no problem?..haha..thn you're wrong
plus if buy proton, if its under warranty, can change for free
even after warranty, change part also won't heartache/blow a hole in your wallet
example is like T and p1 uses almost same part from the same company(denso and bosch) but T's part cost like X3 of p1
rule is premium brand = premium price for parts

just get the 1.6L FLX SE...thats a mighty car...only downside is its using torsion beam not multilink like preve
so its gonna be bumpy

how about the hoses for the oil and water for the compressor?
BW must be very particular about that, and i think their warranty void just by not using a good hoses or hoses supplied by them ,

i've been using turbo cars for quite some time, and i think a good supply of coolant to turbo compressors determine your turbo lifespan

even honeywell or IHI didnt dare to commit warranty biggrin.gif

i think its not they want or not...its they have to...its under the contract between proton and their supplier
not just turbo...a few of their major part...warranty also link back to company itself
like the CVT gearbox, the HU and speaker, the aircon...all warranty not by proton
the hoses i think are all ok since i never heard proton ever have hose problem.....their part will fail 1st be4 the hose does

if u wanna get the 1.6L FLX SE, just get it
once they renew it, it will be back to 1.3L...need to wait SE for 1.6L
persona is a good car actually...rear is multilink..very comfy ride
the only downside is, its outdated, even a 40k saga is more advanced
like gearbox still using 4AT which FC is quite high

If your car is milo tin pls call china metal company cos they support the metal. Nothing to do with proton.

Saga auto gearbox sucks cos its mitsubishi. Proton cannot do aything.

to be honest... it is a standard proton reply...

just like how i once commented on their savvy...

the person who claimed a proton employee can only say the engine etc was not from proton but from renault and can already see by looking at the gearbox...

i f***ed him back until he lost of words...

lol....if the supplier's fault...its definitely its fault
in proton case, they will fix it/change it for u thn send back the part to the manufacturing company for claim
every company did that...they dn't literally send the whole thing back
this is for company to minimize their damage
and yes, proton will ask the owner to go to the company's shop to fix it cuz that part isn't their expertise(parts like the HU and speaker , A/C and the tint)

ppl nvr learn. summore sappork them to build more lemons. actually potong is a nice car. too bad the parts just don't widthstand the test of time. my sister potong saga blm no complains except the enjin like motobot and makan petrol like hell onli. Other than that, quite ok.

when u buy a car from the company that is restricted with no freedom to change suppliers, this is what the end consumer will get.

the above problems are actually not acceptable, especially when the car itself is considered the cheapest sedan.

the reason ppl buy a cheapest sedan is affordability, and high FC is entirely not acceptable biggrin.gif ( in my opinion).

thus myvi and viva rule the selling chart biggrin.gif

Preve is a good car. But I hate the design. The interior is spacious....but from the outside...it looks kind of small.

Boot lid problems and sounds are considered minor issues and it is part and parcel of owning a proton. I used to drive a Wira and I have non-stop small issue problems from day 1 till I sold the car. However the engine and transmission were problem free. I supposed a Mitsu engine + 3 speed outdated AT gearbox cant cause much trouble.


For Preve, the main concern is how the Proton engine is mated with a turbo and the CVT.

the turbo unit may be from a reputable maker
But I cannot say the same proton's engine and the CVT.

These things are complicated and I doubt the mechanics and technicians know their stuff when dealing with turbo and CVT related problems.

This kind of things may take 2-3 years or more to surface and I would advice someone to wait first (if they can wait) or buy something with more proven and reliable technology although may not be as stylish or well equipped as this car.

when last time u visited proton SC?
btw i think honda's CVT even shittier whistling.gif
QUOTE(selinix @ Jul 27 2012, 04:09 PM)
2008 Honda City is the one with CVT gearbox?

If yes, please forget it. The CVT is well known to be defective and it is unsolvable even by Honda itself. I know because I own a 2nd hand Jazz VTEC before.. The car jerk like crazy from time to time .. Do a little more research on it and you will know about the famous issue of the gearbox
