Excellent

GREAT RIDE , GREAT VALUE

NONE

I AM A DEVOTED FAN OF PROTON CARS. I HAVE FOUND MINE TO BE; ECONOMICAL, RELIABLE, AND OVERALL GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY. I DECIDED TO UPDATE MY OLD PROTON FOR THE NEW LIMITED SPECIAL EDITION. AFTER CHECKING OUT THE SPECIFICATIONS I WAS AMAZED TO FIND SO MANY EXTRAS BUILT INTO A COMPETATIVE PRICE. THE...

Excellent

moderately inexpensive

low trade in value

You can tell a lot about a person by looking at the car they drive, I'm not quite sure what that says about me! We used to joke that the typical Proton owner was retired, never took it out of second gear and always wore a hat.It was no mistake they used to sponsor the BBC 'Come Dancing'...

I have recently been driving my dads car due to not being able to use my car, but I do not like to be seen in a budget car, but on this occassion I had to have the Proton. The car is nice to drive but the M reg persona that I was driving does not like the motorways that much. I tend to prefer the...

“I love my Proton”

published 12/07/2000

Reliability, Price

Basic interior

Proton is not the most glamourous or exciting manufacturer of car and when I bought it I was not convinced that I would like it. I have had the car a few months now and I love it. The car has a Mitsubishi engine which is as reliable as they come, done over one hundred thousand miles and still...

Looks good,Has a bit of power behind it

Poor ride, cheap looking plastics

I bought my Proton Persona XLi 1.6 in June 2002.The car had a metalic finish and included alloy wheels. It was comfortable enough to sit in and certainly had a bit of pull when driving, however the ride itself was poor and you could feel every pothole, bump that the car went over which made it...

image, rattly interiors

Oh the proton persona, I've had 2 of these now the first was a 1.6 SEI and the second the 1.8 SRI. This model is based on the Mitsubishi lancer and it also carries the very fast reliable Mitsubishi engines. I have got to admit when I brought the first one I got ripped by my friend at first then...

“My Proton”

Low purchase price for newish low mileage car

Depreciation

I bought a Persona as I had to buy a reasonable automatic quickly and have been pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure about the P and Economy button AND an ovedrive button as they are fiddly to use when going on/off a motorway and I find it a little underpowered considering it's a 1.8. However, it...

Good handling, low price, fuel saver

Looks too similar to Proton Gen2

I got my Proton Persona in June 2008. Basically, Proton Persona is a great budget car with great functionality. It is also a fuel saver car, which can be drive over 320km with 35 Liters of petrol on normal road in Penang, which having traffic problems almost all the time. This helps me save a lot...
