LONGTERMER #3, Vol 11: Proton Waja 1.6 4G18(A)

In this blog entry, I'm updating my daily ride, Proton Waja 4G18 (A) 2001. This is the 11th update  and happened to be my 17th month owning this car.  Sorry for late update, I added my recent trip to Ipoh 2 weeks ago and my Waja 1st time broke down story.
On Mid October, the Waja Driver side Power window jammed. Costs RM260 to repair the motor. I drove from Putrajaya to PJ with the window down.  Half wet as a result. 

On Mid Nov the Waja cannot start.  Tow to Ah Choy in Section 17.  "Camshaft Sensor" problem. RM340 poorer.  Changed the Spark Plugs too.  

On November 29, I drove the Waja to Ipoh.  The car consumed only RM67.05 of fuel to and fro Ipoh, ie. 12.7km/l.  This means that the Waja 4G18 is a Long distance cruiser.  Check out the Huge Boot (photo below):

My average speed was 110km/h.  Fastest I driven was 130km/h.  I fetched a couple and a baby (baby seat fitted facing rearward at back).  Also, I followed another car.

Without further ado, let's proceed to Logbook:
