obviously mr hercules knows the a$$ from the hole. test drive can know
got prob or not?

why not you ask some owners out there who has had their engines replaced
whoose life was ended almost instantly by a bump. HAHAHAHA

also obviously u have not opened up a low mileage cylinder head cover of
a Cam tak Pro Engine before.

give yourself a life, la, just becoz u canot afford better cars dont mean
u need to say what u paid for is good and damn good.

it is pure crap. period.

haha..perhaps mr powerhaus is a rich person? mind to share wat car u r
driving now??

but for me, it doesn not matter wat car u r driving. for me, its is
called respect. Watever car mr powerhaus drive, i will respect u. just
that if mr powerhaus got any problems wif ur car, u can always post here
and we share about ur problem. that is a healthy forum about.

And if u r rich, it doesn't give u right to deny people or disrespect
people car. yup, indeed i cannot afford a better car, then so what?
what is the meaning of a better car?
for me, the proton car is a better car for me..

there is a bmw 320i parking in my house, it also got its own problem. The
car is onli 1 and half years old, but the door lock fail 2 times and the
rubber from the door side drop.

i don need to ask other people who owned a campro bcos me myself driving
a campro. And everyday i travel more than 130km, and it serves me so
good. why i still need to refer those campro owner who is just bad luck
to have their engine burst.

since mr powerhaus always like to listen to the owner of the campro car,
as a campro car owner, i tell u that the engine is reliable..no problem
at all. but i believe that mr powerhaus will not listen to me even i am a
campro user. why? tats wat i post previous, a problematic mind that live
in his own imagination 20years ago.

mr powerhaus, i was a proton basher b4. i once told myself that i will
not goin to have proton in my entire life. but that was few years back.
People need to move on...don close ur mind and some good chances or
oppurtunity will just disappear like tat.

Sorry if my word offend u.
But for my opinion, give some useful comments or suggestion rather than
bash blindly here. i did agree wif u mayb campro still got weakness, but
really, it serves me so well..

no prob man, no offence at all....

my suggestions are good and simple...AVOID the campro at all cost
otherwise time will tell.

good for you yourcampro has served u so well, maybe u r one of the few
lucky ones....but how many KMs u have clocked with the engine?

i am not a basher, i am just talking facts.

supposed to have been complete before it rolls out of the showrrom?


Are you going to accecpt a car that is delivered to you with 3 wheels or
maybe no radio? no central locking?

haha..ok..got ur point here...nice to meet you mr powerhaus

My car mileage is 20 000k

and i always went to the uneven roads and bumps due to my working
environment, but really not giving me any problem. and so are my
relatives tat driving campro oso.. they told me their cars are reliable
and they drove for few years already (actually they are both driving

And different people different requirement to the car. mayb Mr powerhaus
want his car to have CPS and can make it more powerful or etc.

but for me, as long as the car can serve my purpose to travel from one
place to another place then it is good enuf.

So, i do agree wif Mr powerhaus...proton is still not up to the standard
But wif this persona, regardless of its same look wif Gen2, everything
inside it had been improved. if we still insist our thinking wif the pass
bad experience like wira and saga era, we may just lose one good chance
for this car..

Anyway, its all depend on mr powerhaus whether want to give persona a
chance onot.mayb mr powerhaus is rich enough, u will not put the persona
in ur eyes at all. then its ok..but i think majority of us not as rich as
mr powerhaus, so if proton offer a good chance or good deal, we will
still give proton a praise..

anyway, nice to meet u mr powerhaus

ah, i see only 20K kms.

ok, next time, try to go more on those big road humps, not uneven roads.
i dunno how to explain la...usually the type they put in front of the
gate of a construction site...good place to try it would be now in
Bangsar,,..u know Bangsar Utama....they have such hump...

also, after u pass 50Kkm or 80Kkm, try to open up the cylinder head...but
obviously, susah la, because nobody is going to do that...

yes, not up to my standard , in fact i dont think it is even fit for
human consumption, unless the boss himself drive one to work and not an
imported european sedan hahahaha and then give thumbs up hahahaha

will you buy a Honda Civic Type R but no Vtec coz not ready yet....??

yea ture true, i dont even wana look at persona and fail to understand
why people get exicted over stoppid advertisements

i will update u once my car clock 50k km.. it won't take so long time to
do that..but i think if i service my car well and take good care, it
should not be any problem for my campro.

but wat i think is, even when a bmw or mercedes is old enough, the car
will also got his problem if u r not service well.

u don understand y people so excited over the persona?? very simple,

1. mayb u r too rich tat u can afford car like beemer or mercedes until
persona this kind of car can't even fit in to ur eyes..

2. or mayb u r blinded by the hatred of last time bad experience or u
close ur mind towards the new proton but other people are always open
mind for a better deal in proton. (haha..anyway..just my opinion..no
offend..forgive me if i say anything wrong)

and ur example wif honda civic...agree wif u in this point..hope proton
will faster roll out the cps

anyway...again nice to meet u MR powerhaus..

Big Smile
