which service centre and usually the sound come from the regulator - i mean power window motor not properly tighten....or did u fix any tinting? worry they didnt screw on yr door trim properly.
Never did any tinting before...cheras perdana service centre. Not rly sure bout the regulator..but 1 things is, if i completely turn down the window, those sound will gone. So..isit the regulator things?.. u got any service centre to recommend that can fix this kind of problem?

the nearest u can go to desa tun razak, near bdr tasik permaisuri, opposite UKM hospital beside the perodua svc centre...its branch svc centre...the one at cheras perdana if not mistaken is dealer svc ctr.

if u wind all down, then should be the regulator, i am guessing based on my own car experience...i did tighten it b4 and no sound after that.....

Talking about Warranty, Bro Evo... I got one silly question. If i remove all the existing soft cover in the BLM and put an extra layer of Insulflex Isolator as sound proofing. would that be void of warranty? and my 1.6MT FC is RM50/280KM ~ 300KM is the FC too high? I'm only using it in the city. On ya, one more issue, my 1st service, cost me RM200+, some more they did charged me services charges about RM19++... isn't that a little bit weird? the SC is Proton Edar Penang Branch! Plz advice...

P/S: for sound proofing, I'll DIY...

u didnt meddle with the wiring and other mechanical parts..then its still under warranty.....
but the part that u remove or modify will be void, e.g roof lining, pillar cover, door trim, fender trim etc....
rm200 is high, it should be rm110 to rm120 only with semi sync oil.
u should tell them do not charge me on extra items, i need basic things only.

Proton Saga 1.3 BLM actually improved a lot if compare to previous Proton Wira 1.5 auto. Stronger chassis, better suspension, better fuel consumption (about 11km/L) for 1,070kg car. No major issues so far for my brother car, current mileage = 6k.

Just one thing I don like, the headrest of front seat. No so comfort. The rest all was ok. Don compare with Myvi. Myvi only engine and gearbox was japanese, the rest still local parts like proton car caused supplier same. Myvi rear boot very small, not comfort when cruising on highway, chassis weak, FC not so impressive, bigger possibility roll over when lost control. Compare to Myvi tyres and BLM tyres, BLM M-Line was using 185/60/R14 while Myvi Full Spec was 175/65/R14.

I'm not pro with proton, my comment based on testing for 2 cars when my brother want to purchase.

For those who always balik kampung, SAGA BLM was the cheapest and safer solution to you cause stable when 110km/h ~ 120km/h.

Saga is a reliable car and reasonably priced for its range. It comes with std package of 175,000km or 5years warranty. So far there is no major cases of breakdown or defects. I don deny there are some minor concerns which i believe most cars do have it, but it will subside once rectified by the svc ctr.

After sales service: as long as you maintained yr car with proton's periodical service interval, its all under warranty. the service interval are 1000km, 5000km and 10,000km (with free labor charge) then followed by every 10,000km service. The recommended engine oil is mineral based 20-50w and it does not cost more than rm100 for normal lube change, major service is every 20,000km and the cost is around rm150 to rm250. overall you saved half of the service cost with every 10,000km service instead of the norm of every 5000km.

to add on to it, the saga runs on lotus tuned suspension and it has great handling and comfort too. the FC has improved with proper tuning whenever you send in for service. The power to weight ratio is sufficient for the size. latest model comes with tinting and immobilizer key for added comfort and safety. Hope this could clear your doubt in purchasing our national pride.

Bump: the 3rd pair of seat belt is underneath the seat, you may get our svc ctr to pull it out or u can try pull it from under the seat.
Dear Bump,

As you said after the first three services, comes to the fourth service which needed the labour charge the service charge will not over RM250? I just went to EON service centre, they said the standard service for fourth service will more than RM500. Including changing engine oil, oil filter, air filter, coolant, spark plug, and etc...

They refuse to give me the price and parts that needed to be change, as they said the price will print out when comes to invoice, the times is after we done service and the payment time.

Do you know the pricing and parts which need to be change at fourth service?

Regards,

Stanley
