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

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

In this blog entry, I'm updating my ride, Proton Waja 1.6 4G18(A).  This is the 4th update.  I spent minimal compared to last month.

 Firstly, I had a hair raising experience, Hard braking as I approaching invisible bump from 90 to 30...  As a result, the brake LOCKED.  Thank God I didn't hit the Bike and Nissan Frontier in front.  Man, I missed ABS.

Secondly, the central Air cond vents design's CRAP.  Front passenger complained no air.  Why?

It's due to the "Alfa" or Early BMW design (see photos below) which angled towards the driver.

I planned to upgrade the rims. Went to a shop in Pandan Mewah (We Automobile) they quoted me RM450 for trade in my rims for "Taiwan" SSR Type C Gunmetal 6.5jj x 15" PCD114.3 (see picture below). I told them I'm coming back end of this month.

Second potential Damage's "PIONEER DEH-4350UB" Head unit. Quoted RM440 + 30 console box = RM470. This MP3/WMA/CD Player head unit has USB/AUX, 2x RCA Out, Remote Control and supports Ipod cable. Target: 2 months time.

Also, the Fuel Consumption is consistent from last month, hovering between 7.1km/l to 8.65km/l. This Waja seems to prefer EssoMobil over shell and petronas.

Without further ado, let's proceed to logbook:

Mileage as at 12/9/11: 130,680km
Mileage last month: 980km

Mileage today: 131,656km
Mileage this month: 976km


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

This month:
Best: 8.65km/l  (RM22 cents) 50% highway, 50% city. Esso RON95 (6 October)
Worst: 7.1km/l (25 cents) 100% city driving (Shell RON95) 20 Sept


1) Petrol: RM220 (average RM22.5 cents)
2) Parking: RM60
3)Reload touch and go RM50
4) Car Wash: RM6


Before I go, here's some parting shots:
