LONGTERMER #3, Vol 2: Proton Waja 1.6 4G18 (A)

LONGTERMER #3, Vol 2: Proton Waja 1.6 4G18 (A)



In this blog entry, I'm updating my ride, the Waja 4G18 (A).  It's been 1 month and 1 week I "owned" the car.  So far I spend minimal amount of money on the car.  Just RM40 for REVO Oil treatment. For more info on this REVO Engine Treatment, see my review last year:
http://otoreview.blogspot.com/2010/06/product-reviewrevo-engine-treatment.html

The result?
SMOOTHER, Quieter engine, slight torque gain (Pick-up).


Spent 7/10 occasions STUCK in Horrendous KL Traffic Jam.  Going there usually took 20 to 45 mins and Coming back would take 1 hour TO 2 HOURS and 10 MINS (After a heavy downpour) from WISMA GENTING to My house in Section 17, Petaling Jaya.  Note that it's a mere 16km to and 14km fro ride (Using Jalan Perak/Jln Sultan Ismail/Jalan Parlimen/Semantan/Sprint Slip road).

The car's alignment and balancing is TOTALLY OUT.  Steering wobbles at high speed (above 110km/h), front tyres uneven wear (outer almost bald but inside still 60%).  Time to rotate tyres?  Maximum speed I've driven is 140km/h so far due to the "Unstable", uncomfortable (Noisy engine + Loud wind noise) ride at that speed.  Kinda Scary if I drove above 120km/h.  Hope this can be changed after the Alignment/Balancing.


Without further ado, let's proceed to the Logbook.


Mileage at "delivery" (10/7/11): 128,548km


Mileage as at 12/8/11: 129,700km
Mileage this month: 1152km

FUEL CONSUMPTION:


Best: 12.8km/L (RM14 cents) - 100% Highway. (NKVE)
Worst: 7.1km/L (RM25 cents) - 100% City.  Stuck in KL traffic for 50mins to and up to 2 hours fro for a 15 km journey.  Shell RON95


EXPENDITURE:


1) Petrol: RM230 (RM20 cents average).
2) Toll: RM50 (1 time top up touch & go)
3) REVO Oil: RM40.


That's all...


Well, there's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words.  Here are the pictures:

  4. 3 of my original rims Bengkok. I changed new rims. Did alignment, on wheel and off wheel balancing and camber readjustment.

    Now can go up to 180km/h comfortably.

  7. Depends on where you stay. ANY Mechanic will know how to fix Waja. It's NOT A Continental Car like Audi or Alfa.

    My mechanic is Ah Choy. Block C, Happy Mansion Flat, Sect 17/13, Petaling Jaya. This is the NEAREST Mechanic from my house. Walking Distance 500m away only.
