New White Proton Exora – My Own Review Version
I received this car (my new Proton Exora) on the 25th of May 2009 (Monday). This post is published for the purpose of sharing my experiences as a user of the new Proton Exora. I’m not a technical person (automobile wise) So, my review will be in a simple layman language. For your information, I bought a new solid white colour 1.6 liters M-Line version of Proton Exora for the price RM 69,998. The price of the better version H-Line is RM 75,998.
I’m now a proud owner of the first Malaysia MPV. 100% engineered by Malaysian engineer. I support Malaysia products, Malaysia Boleh!!!
Following will be some short experience sharing of me and my new proton MPV. I’m lucky that my new Proton Exora problems have not appeared yet at this moment.
Monday (25/6/09): Received my Proton Exora. At that moment, I have three cars in front of my house. The Proton Waja was in the process of letting go.
Tuesday (26/6/09): We went to Brothers and fixed the tinted on all Exora’s window. More privacy now… Released/let go the Proton Waja. Uhuk-uhuk… My Proton Waja enhanced version was such a loyal and reliable servant. However, we’ve made the decision mainly because the family has grown bigger. So, we need some space in whatever vehicle we have. That’s purely the reason why we were forced to let go the superb Proton Waja…
Saturday (30/6/09): Went to Wet World Batu Pahat and the present mileage is 980km. Need to service it at 1000 km. We love this car. It’s great and awesome. Spacious and quite inside.
Monday (1/6/09): Fixed the LCD DVD/TV player at Brothers, Taman Universiti, Johor Bahru. It cost RM1,300.
Tuesday (2/6/09): We got a GPS holder for our Proton Exora.
Wednesday (3/6/09): First service 1000 km
Side Angle. Actually I already hit 1180km. I serviced my Proton Exora at Proton Service Center at Taman Teratai, Johor Bahru. Ironically, my Proton Exora was the first one of its kind to be serviced there. So, for the sake of White Proton Exora enthusiasist, sorry to only include these set of photos (while servicing) for the time being. I have problem with both my digital camera and camera phone. You can see from this photos that I’ve fixed the tinted and already pasted black smooth sticker between the windows to make the entire window area black in colour. The cost of tinted + sticker is RM350. I did not choose the special V-cool tinted or other more expansive one. The tinted was fixed at Brothers Taman Universiti, Skudai.
Side + Rear Angle View. The significant differences between H-Line and M-Line (mine is M-Line) from this angle is I don’t have the “top spoiler” and the bar is the same colour as the MPV body. H-Line rear bar is chrome coloured.
Another side and rear angle. I’m glad we get white Proton Exora. I think white is nice…
Front angle view. The front bonnet is not properly closed, that’s why you can see the gap there. One of my next project is to install nice cool fog light under the bumper. Also, when Proton Exora skirting is available, I’ll get it done for my Exora.
Front Angle View – closed up.
Front Angle 30 degrees. Proton Exora touch down.
Final check before the technician test drive the car again.
We installed the 10.4 inch LCD DVD/TV Player at Brothers. It was a little bit tricky to fix this huge set. They Brother’s crew, approximately around 5-7 all of them managed to get the work done under 1 hour. They screwed the based onto the metal top frame of the Proton Exora. The original LCD DVD player in H-Line is white colour and is customize for only Proton Exora. Cost of this set is RM1,300. The LCD DVD/TV player also has a pair of white lights, built in speakers and come with a slime sleek remote control. The player sound is connected to the Proton Exora sound system by FM frequency.
Viewing the LCD – not switched on. I’ll post it later when we play a DVD cartoon. Just bought few DVDs for my kids.
The dash board interior. Notice, on the top side, we just fixed a holder for our GPS. Inside M-Line, there’s no GPS and GPS holder. So, we have to get one from a local hand phone shop which cost us around RM30.
The Proton Exora engine. I can’t really comment on this. I’m not that technical to explain how the engine works or perform. I leave it to the technicians and mechanics to do what ever necessary.
Wait for later updates.
