    Proton more then likley cause there such a great underated car. People expect to much and you wont get the luxary or quiet on the road. But if you want reliablity and cheap running costs this is the car.

    January 2009

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    I bought the proton because there cheap to buy nearly new or just afew years old. There very reliable and underated cars. The car parts are made by mitsubishi which are easy to get hold of. Also some of the higher models have Lotus suspension and handeling. The running costs are very cheap cost next to nothing. Also the servicing parts are very cheap also. These cars are pulled down alot but they get a to b everytime if there looked after. You cant complain for the money you pay for them there so cheap to buy.

    What's it like to drive?

    Its simple to drive no fuss and effort needed. It gets a to b very reliable. Yes its alittle noiser then some other cars. But you cant have everything for a car so cheap. But I put bigger alloy wheels on the car from 14inch to 17inch which it handles great. But the standard 14inch alloy wheels are fine to better then standard normal tyres and metal rim wheels.

    What's it like to park?

    Parking very easy with the power steering on board. Also the mirrors have a good view all a round. The windows have plenty of view nice and clear all a round.

    What's most practical about your car?

    The car so cheap to run you pay nothing to run these proton cars if there looked after.
