Hi everybody, not sure i m asking question at right place here. Anyhow, I am planning to buy a car, and persona is one of my choices. As everyone know, proton has a bad reputation since long time ago. However, with the intro of persona, what I see from proton web site (i went to one of the show rooms too in puchong once a time before) does demo me that its a nice car and i m considering to give it a try.

Besides, i do heard from ppl feedback that persona still have quite number of problems, like power window problem after few weeks ride, and many more tiny problems that I do not know how to mention (i m not car expert that know all the naming, jargon). So, I hope that any Persona owner can give me your valuable comments base on your experience with the vehicle.

Pls be reminded that what i wish is to hear concrete comments, and not just bashing proton, and this is not the reply that i wish to c. So, persona owner pls give your feedback here and your feedback sure valuable for those like me who r actually consider to buy persona.

Basically what i want to know is that how many problem that persona gives you, and is there any other major problem beside the small problems.

Thanks in advance for any reply.

i can understand that you like tht car. IMHO you should just get a myvi since its around the same range as a persona.why bother getting a brand new car with sooo many tiny problems that later on will annoy you?

btw, off topic awhile..i was test driving my friend's savvy,wanted to put on the seat belt and its jammed.brand new car just drove 4,000km.just shows that proton cant even get the fundamentals right.

Are you sure that the Persona has sooo many tiny problems? So far my dad's 3-4 month old Persona is doing well

And it's hard to travel places having a small boot capacity like a Myvi's ... not that I'm a basher of Perodua or a fanboy of Proton, just stating the truth.

Lol...what a lame reply. Why bother to buy myvi that lack of boot space and engine capacity when its around the same range as a persona?

Btw ts, if u really like a car just go test drive and feel the car. Dont have to ask here.
U will get this kind of answer. 100% u will get a bashers and supporters words which make u more pening.

Thanks for the opinion. Honestly, I did had ride on my colleague's MyVi for few times, and what I can say that it is superb. The sound isolation is so good till i can't really sense the engine sound if i do not hear it purposely. Also, myvi is crazily spacious and rarely has problems except for the few which is really tiny one, as according to few of my collegues that is myvi owner. However, my one collegues told me that for him, there is one downside of myvi is that the car's weight is just below 900kg, so we might feel the car shake when there is some heavy vehicle pass by, esp in highway.

Now, why do I prefer persona at the first impression? Of course there is sth not that impress me about myvi. First, MyVi is quite expensive and for 1.3 full spec will cost around 49k++, which is 50k. For 1.3 car sold at 50k, it is kinda expensive for me. Second, I wish to have a spacious boot because my family member always travel to oversea, and most often time it is useful to have a spacious boot to carry the damn big 28"/29" luggage. Third, I would balik kampung quite often and I need to carry number of people, with persona's weight of more than 1100kg, together with ABS (HI-Line Model), I would feel safer when I am on my balik kampung trip.

However, however, as mentioned, I have to admit that Proton had done a bad bad job coz of the quality issues. Though there start with what i-Care program if i m not mistaken to address the old issues or any new issues for persona, but, to be a wise consumer, I need to make a good survey before I buy. I dun want to get regret with my foolish act later when the vehicle gives me a lot problems. I am sure everyone also like to have their satisfaction for every single cent spent, right?

This is why I wish to gather opinions from Persona owner, coz they are the one who knows the vehicle well. laugh.gif Of course, different people might have different opinions and I can't stop that. But I really wish that whoever want to bash persona, of course you can, but with a good reason la, not just hearing other ppl say so then follow. For me, bashing with reasonable answer and prove = Positive Feedback. biggrin.gif

MYvi actually a good car only price are not reasonable.

for me that mini car I would desire to buy if is below 40k.

in another hand persona having a good value for buying due to larger space and performance.

as I been ride in my frend persona, dun think QC much improve maybe abit improvement. Room for improvement maybe increase time to time.

who says that new persona got window problem? that person must be an idiot ignorant who never had a persona, and judge the car by proton past history.

we are talking about persona, not proton saga megavalve or proton wira, ok.

my persona is running strong since october with 0% defect. full stop.

stop listening to comments from a person who said that he heard another friend's friend said something.... that's just lame old trick

myvi faked spacious with high roof which indirectly makes ur car unstable at corner.. there was once i went to malacca a-famosa with i leading (proton wira) and my friend myvi (follow).. he even called me to slow down because his car is shaking left right at 'kawasan angin lintang' area sweat.gif true story, believe it or not up to u wink.gif
u try sitting 3 average size person in myvi rear vs persona and i will get what i mean by faked spacious.. but i got to admit, it is nice sitting alone at the back tongue.gif
