My savvy AMT having a problem recently. Auto warning light turns on and cannot change gear. Also jerking in low RPM.
I sent my car to COE last week and they told me 3 parts need to change to fix this problem.
1. Modulate Actuator - RM9674.72
2. Cylinder clutch - RM2764.38
3. Electro Pump - RM2006.05
My car is just 2 years old and milage is 48K. Warranty expired on Sept 08.
Who the hell want to pay RM15K just to fix car? Anybody have the same problem?
Any advice? Is it possible to appeal to proton to claim this under warranty?
Err...I know this happen like a year ago but just wanna share my experience with my AMT Savvy
I had the same problem last year, the AMT start flashing AUTO amber lite when drive in auto and that time mileage reach 45K. Sent to SC more than 5 times (3x in Cheras, 2x in Kepong) and the technicians keep quoting "wiring or electronic prob". I might not well versed in technical stuffs but it does fishy already.
Then, one day the gear box just stuck at N an cannot move at all and we had to call i-Proton and was advised to call our insurance to tow the car to SC. Guess what, SC in Kepong dunno wht happen to the car and fix abit here and there and ask us to send the car to HQ (Shah Alam)
. Otw to HQ, car gearbox jammed again in Subang. Call tow truck again
Reach there, was hold up for almost 2 hours then the engineers came out and says had to leave the car for a day for fully inspection. Next day came as per appointment and was advised that the HYDRAULIC PUMP was defect and need to change. Some tech lingo and quotation total goes to RM20K. I went beserk coz my car was less than 2 years and was maintain in good service record. And the engineer have the nerve to say I could be 'abusing' my car as it is a FRENCH build engine, not Japan. Bla,bla,bla...he said probably need a month to fix the car.
Ok lah after they fixed and all and they said all charges being lieu except I have to pay some service fee around RM150 (maybe coz I make really 'good' feedback email to Proton ppl...dunno).
Till today, after the the major MAJOR service, Savvy had no big prob except I can't get over the amount I have to pay for changing Timing Belt, wheel bearing, battery and service around rm2k. Probably had to look for generic parts after this or buy import cars,..coz am paying the same amount of money maintaining my Savvy with Toyota cars.
