Entirely unremarkable and fantastic value Review with images

Advantagesmoderately inexpensive

Disadvantageslow trade in value

"...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' competition. Being a thertysomething family man, I certainly didn't fit the target market. Proton emerged in the late 1980s as an economy brand 'family' vehicle manufacturer, making rather boxy five door hatchbacks im Malasia, using Mitsubishi power and suspension units in a 'home ..."

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS NEW SPECIAL!!!

AdvantagesGREAT RIDE , GREAT VALUE

DisadvantagesNONE

"...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 MODEL I CHOSE WAS THE 1.6 LXI 5 DOOR HATCHBACK. THE PRICE WAS £9,299 FOR THE LISTED MODEL, AS I HAD NO PART EXCHANGE I WAS ABLE TO NEGOTIATE A BETTER ..." Read review

Cheap, But not nasty

AdvantagesCheap, econmical vehicle

DisadvantagesInterior trim is not hard wearing

"...engine out of an MPI proton for only £100 quid with only 32,000 miles on it. The car drove very well, no bangs or groans even with the mileage.The gearchange was nice and smooth.Brakes work very well.I had a non PAS model but didnot miss it as the steering is already light.The only fault i had with the car is that the rear suspension bushes went and the rear tyres scub at an alarming rate(another fault but more common at high mileage).It cost over ..."

my proton 1300

Advantagesvalue for money

Disadvantageslooks

I bought the first proton i viewed from an old gentleman outside of London, although i wasnt impressed at first when i viewed the vehicle my older and wiser! girlfriend said i should buy it and i only have her to thank now. The thing that put me off initially were the looks of the car especially the interior , but have since found this to be an amazing little car for the money, ..." Read review

Cheap budget car but it is a life saver

AdvantagesDont mock a budget car as it is the best thing I have driven.

DisadvantagesHandling could be slightly better and the features on the car.

"...dont get me wrong, the proton has the reliablity and security but yesterday came to the test of the safety of the car. I was involved in a head on collision by a young lad that looks as if he has not been driving long speeding down a steep hill after storms. The roads were very wet still and this lad came down the hill between 40 - 50 mph in a 30 mph limit and lost control when he saw me comming up the hill. I had only just turned up the hill and ..."
