Good thing I found this thread
Am opting to get a new car if they have raya promo
same as TS, am looking at either MyVi G3 and the MC2 Iriz (I like the looks on the newest one more but of course looks aren't everything).
Looking at the MyVi 1.3 X or Iriz 1.3 Exec (Though if the people in here can convince me to jump to 1.5/1.6 variant that would be appreciated /poisoned).
Let me start with that I am a current 2005 Perodua Kancil 850 ezi user, so I am well aware with Perodua's good after sales support as I am still sending my kancil to official perodua workshops for servicing.
However, the new Iriz FL got my attention and I am leaning towards Proton for my next car. Yes I am aware of some minor differences between Proton and Perodua cars such as the turn signal and fuel port side on both brands. That is just a matter of preferences and getting used to it.
My fears before taking the jump to Proton side are the after sales support which till now I am still hearing issues with available part stocks, low quality workmanship during servicing and the overall build quality of their cars like their punch gb.
Would love to hear your input on this, thanks a bunch
personally, Proton is a way better car that imho is worth dealing whatever pitfalls that proton SC/after sales may have.
Myvi suspension is just absolute crap in today's standards.
go test drive one and drive over a speed bump/bad pothole and then do the same condition with a face lifted Iriz (or Persona)
then the steering, overall driving experience.
I joked with my sister during our test drive trips - Proton's "it's in the drive", they really literally meant it.
From show room, maybe after sales, everything the p2 may have an edge. but car wise, P2 doesn't even come close.
If i'm going to be paying much cash over a period of few years and interests as well, i might as well buy something i actually enjoy to drive.
P2 is never going to give me that in its current form.
