TOP 6 WORST Protons

1) Proton Tiara.

Why?
24,000 units sold from 1996 to 2000.  How many can you see on the road today?  Mostly kantoi.  Utterly unreliable and Cramped interior + useless boot.  3 wheel nuts = A JOKE!




2) Proton Juara.

Why?
Ugly as sin (Too boxy).  Underpowered 1.1 engine, Impractical fixed 4+2 seats instead of 7 seats as seen in similar sized Suzuki ERV.  Also, low rear lights (At Bumper level), what a Joke. No demand =  1 of the WORST Resale value car.



3) Proton Saga LMST.

Why?
Montage above: What I mean by Side bumpers. Saga LMST no longer have them.

Milotin car; They removed the Side bumpers (found in Iswara), Almost 0 safety features (only front seat belts that's all; Bumper drop upon collision. Dinosaur Carburetor engine. Floaty at over120km/h. An irony consider it produced from 2004 to 2008. 1.3 only as they dropped the 1.5 engine.

4) Proton Iswara LOCAL Spec Milotin/ Taxi spec.  1993-2003
Why?
Milotin.  Thinner body/steel VS UK-specs.  Rust issues (Esp 1993 to 1999), Floaty at over 120km/h.  Bumper drop upon collision = USELESS.

5) Proton Waja Campro / 1.8 Renault Engine.
Why?
Campro drinks petrol especially Automatic (RM0.27/km average), slower than 4G18.  Difficult to tune/Re-map ECU.  1.8 Renault engine = Unreliable, ultra-high maintenance, Gearbox problem.  A pity.  Otherwise very high-specced car with Excellent ride and handling.

6) Proton Wira 1.3/1.5/1.6 1994-1999. 
Why?
Chronic Rust issues.  1.3 and 1.5 3 speed Auto paired with a Heavy body = Underpowered.  1.6 Auto = Gearbox problem.  2000 onwards = better because they FIXED the Rust issues (Salty glue used for Welding).
