    Proton Exora owners - your feedback, please.

    I'm planning to buy a Proton Exora (manual). I've tested drove it and found it to be to my liking but before I take the plunge, I'd like to hear from Exora owners. How's the Exora experience? Is it worth the $? Also, the engine is locally made...any comments on that?

    Thank you.

    I thought Perodua is coming out with a MPV?... wanna wait for another choice?

    P.S. I'd never want to touch a Pro*** car even with a 10 foot pole. Sorry I'm biased for numerous reasons (non political of course)

    Dennis..........you have test drove the car and it is to your liking and I suppose the price is also to your liking.........then why ask others opinion? It's your money and others are not going to pay for it........go ahead and buy. Later when you have good/bad experiences about the car .....you can be satisfied/regret that others didn't make the decision

    Dragonfly,
    Dennis is being a smart consumer here by doing some research. There is so much media advertisement and hype in marketing that important details can get smudged or conveniently left out.
    The first month I got my new Wira, the bonnet tailguard drop off during a storm. Later, I found that I was not the only owner that had the problem..
    Test drive does not tell you of the car's quality.

    Even though u ask for a comment from a Exora Owner,
    i believe that you'll receive hundreds of comments from non-exora owners.

    it's every non-exora owners personal CRUSADE to prevent another Exora being bought.

    My new Myvi had a defective clutch plate causing gears to jam (had clutch plate changed), left front drive shaft came off and leaked gear oil (perodua just reinserted the shaft), cabin smells of petrol after filling up (Perodua resealed the tube to the petrol tank), was cheated by two Perodua service stations (SS13 and USJ19) when they did not change my car's engine oil when they were supposed to (Perodua Genmarie found the enjine oil very dirty when I went for third service). Even if the Myvi comes highly rated by consumers I was one of the unlucky ones with these problems. Call it luck of the draw.

    yes, it will be a mega-MyVi as far as I know...a MyVi with a stretched wheelbase and higher roof.

    It would make a great taxi too.

    I'm only guessing but our so called local MPV's (not the import ones or expensive ones ah!) are nearly always underpowered especially near to full load. To me MPV should have an engine thats capable of at least 120bhp on tap for good power to weight ratio, otherwise your fuel consumption will go up.
