2nd Visit to Proton Service Center

I went back to Proton Service Center to complain about noise when hit a bump. They mentioned about spring fully compressed and other rants but I insisted it to be rectified. My exora was there all day long and the next morning when I drove it, guess what? That sound still there.

I called Proton Customer Service 1-300-880-888 to tell about my problem and they suggest me to send back to COE. I already make an appointment to COE for next Monday 8.00AM. Hope it will be solved. 

Mileage: 2005 KM

Mileage - 4/6/2009

It's 700km now and the average fuel consumption drops from 13.4 initially to 11.8l/100km. For those who 'forgot' about this features, press the button on the lower middle of that meters until panel on the right shows ODO. Then press again that button until panel on the left flashing, it's normally 5 seconds and release it. After that press again the button to cycle between average fuel consumption, km until empty and timer. Good luck.

Hi everyone who stumble upon this blog. I'm trying to document my experience with Proton Exora that I bought in May 2009. The ODO shows 690km only and so far so good. However there are two minor issues:

1. Strange sound whenever I hit a hump or pothole. It's not loud but nevertheless annoying.
2. Probably due to my inexperience in handling auto, it feels difficult to get into the right gear especially when overtaking

I'll service it for 1000km soon and tells about it.
