i still do not recommend this SC, as i live nearby. the last time i went there buying air cabin filter, they gave me the wrong one even after reconfirm it will fit. they did refund for me but i just feel they follow their experience than the book. Last time, they skipped engine air intake filter, so right now i have an overdue air intake filter. frankly i dont feel confident in them. RULE OF THUMB: regardless which SC, download the service timeline from proton website bring it and specifically ask any SC to follow mati mati, i dont like them over charging ,suggesting me additional service that has zero benefit, like washer fluids and new car 1k engine flush(engine flush at 1k thats a freaking scam) i tried service at Cose and i can say they also dont know what they are doing, after service suppose they gonna reset my next maintenance warning to 40k or 6 months, when i ask them, they say after my previous warning reached to 0 then come back to reset.... im like really??? i also tried SC at puchong jaya jalan serindit, they dont even bother reset my maintenance warning. im driving the new persona as well. i would prefer service at senaxis at Taman Mayang Jaya.

Can i ask the original rim change the tayar size to 195/55/15 can? since original size is 185/55/15.
ChaosSaberX (4 days ago)
you can use 195/55/15 you can use this calculator here for precise measurement, overall diameter must not be over or under 3% https://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-Size-Calculator/185-55R15/195-55R15/185-55R15?ismetric=False
Kon Wai Luen (5 days ago)
Dont see a reason why not, but you may want to consider 195/50 R15 instead so as not to have too big a diameter difference.

Can bring own engine oil to service??
Kon Wai Luen (5 days ago)
For my Waja, no problem, but not the Persona, as the car is still under warranty.
Hi Kon, are contintenal cc6 reliable? Considering changing swap silverstone with cc6
ChaosSaberX (4 days ago)
im using cc6 195/55/r15, road noise is significantly dropped. This is a soft tyre, it deforms better to adsorb bumps, and thus it consume a little more fuel about 10% more, probably due to my up size tyre. Ecopia would be a good option if FC is your concern, for better grip michilen energy mx2 is good but pricer, not sure about good year, gonna ask those new batch persona owners
Kon Wai Luen (6 days ago)
It's a definite upgrade from your Silverstones
Hello Guys (7 days ago)
Hi Kon, would like to ask you should i go for coating or waxing on my newly bought honda city in order to protect the car's paint? or don't have the need to do so? just daily driving car, thinking want to avoid those stones that might scratch off the paint
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
It's not an absolute necessity, but go for it if you a particular about your car's appearance. Come over to Wearnes la, we offer packages for Gyeon coating.

Can't wait to rent this persona vvt in july..if it lives up or surpass my expectations,might as well consider this over the inspira evo/hyundai sonata gls as used models hover around 30++k
crysisownz (7 days ago)
Kon Wai Luen might consider one besides the other two i just mentioned
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
It's a decent car. 1-2 year old examples are good buys.

Mine 60,300km... Gear auto jumped to neutral on moving. Went to workshop and informed gear box is not showing good sign. Need to change. For those Proton Persona 2017, do check gear box...
Ling Hwa Lien (5 days ago)
Well, I just spoke to mechanic.. he said he cannot give me the report details (due to P&C issue) but can give me the photos of the gear box. I can share the photos to you if want them.
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
There are many complaints about the Punch CVT, but I don't hear unreliability among them. Usually, people kutuk it for being noisy and unrefined, but the transmission, to my knowledge, is also pretty robust.
Ling Hwa Lien (7 days ago)
No. The mechanic in charge told me that he also surprised to see the condition of the gear box. Now I just need to wait for phone call. I also want to see the report details which to be submitted next week... Because the car was inspected yesterday while going 60k km maintainance. I will share the info once I got it.
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
Did they mention specifically what went wrong with the transmission?
Ronaldo Kme (8 days ago)
Does the computer reset total trip meter as well?
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
It resets all three trip meters and the average trip computers. Odometer of course not la.

Hi Kon, any ideas for engine mounting market price now ? For Saga Flx. Car steering is shaking . Thanks
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
Really not sure mate, but shaking steering unlikely result of engine mounting issue
firdausnew zuraeny (8 days ago)
Bagus proton.. good service.. promise deliver by them.. x mcm perodua.. minimum waiting service 1jam 30minit.. maximum i wait hit 3 hours service.. so much waste time.. plus.. if do diagnose by computer must add on rm60.. aiyooo.. haha...pape pun good job proton..
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
Kalau small service centre, it's easier to meet the promised time. Where do you send your car for servicing? Usually, I hear good comments on Perodua service.
John L (8 days ago)
Hey, Mr. Kon, unrelated but, you know the jerkiness in the CVT? I went to Senaxis for service a few months ago and complained about it regarding my Iriz and they did something to greatly reduce it. I didn't catch what the foreman said, but I think he said he retuned the clutch. My Iriz felt really smooth after that. But of course, it's not a permanent fix and my Iriz is starting to feel jerky again already. Also, I finally got an answer about ECU update from Senaxis - no ECU update for 1.3 model Iriz. Only available for 1.6 models. But there is an electronic steering update available for my 1.3 Iriz. Proton HQ couldn't give me a straight answer regarding this but somehow Senaxis could. Also, regarding my bearings issue, I lodged a complain to Proton HQ and they said should be covered under warranty and will issue refund. Still waiting for the refund... More than a month already. Called up the service center who was at fault and they said will call me back with an update but they didn't call me back. Now it's raya already. Have to wait some more to call them.
John L (7 days ago)
Kon Wai Luen oops. Taman Mayang, not Taman Megah.
John L (7 days ago)
Kon Wai Luen yes, it's in PJ. Near the Kelana Jaya LRT. I think that place called Taman Megah? One of your viewers recommended that SC.
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
My wife complained of the jerkiness initially too, but has since gotten used to it. Senaxis is a Proton Edar service centre?
Nurafiq Khir (8 days ago)
Woah you got free gift..i servicing at honda nothing they give to me ..not bad proton nowadays..
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
The free gift came with the Petronas engine oil, I think.
Ganesh c (8 days ago)
can u start do  property review   like  aman damai emrald hills condo by guocoland
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
Beng is doing that, but I guess I'll have to try my hand on it some day.
Ganesh c (8 days ago)
abang ,  i changed cvt fluid.   we need 4 liters.  they have one big bottle 4 liter.  i remember it was around  or less then rm130.  i change cvt every 20,000km.    laugh at me  i dont care.
Fitri Zailani (7 days ago)
Ganesh c I won't laugh at you. That a good thing actually. But still, I think you need to replace the filter at every 60k km though.
Kon Wai Luen (8 days ago)
It's a reasonable precaution. Transmission fluids are subject to severe stress and degradation.
Ganesh c (8 days ago)
so nice of them giving free gift. some shops hide the free gift and pakat with spare part shop to sell them for proifit.
Ganesh c (8 days ago)
STOP IT.   proton 4s  rm100  semi synthetic  saja la. maybe they kon u cause ur name is kon.  oh no.  pls save ur money.
Fitri Zailani (7 days ago)
Ganesh c The RM 100 is only for the 800 SE. If they are using the others, IT'S RM118. but if you pay 118 for the SE, then they you pay extra lah.
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
ok lah... anggap RM18 pay for the screw driver set. haha
kohson koh (8 days ago)
hey kon, possible for you to do two reviews? vw Arteon and Kia Stinger?
Kon Wai Luen (7 days ago)
I think the 2.0T is definite, not sure about the 3.3.
kohson koh (8 days ago)
hey kon, which model will be in MY? 3.3? 2.0?
kohson koh (8 days ago)
possible to get vento or polo?
kohson koh (8 days ago)
i see kon, hope to see your review soon!!! Just wondering, why persona??
Kon Wai Luen (8 days ago)
Neither models are currently in Malaysia. But Stinger will be around soon la.
Wan Amir (9 days ago)
I noticed that your motor oil price is abit high than suggested price from Proton apps. Normally i service with Petronas Semis and it just cost me rm100 before GST.
Fitri Zailani (7 days ago)
It depends. If they you the 800 SE semi. Then it 100. If you got the 800 semi, RM 118.
Kon Wai Luen (8 days ago)
Oh.. that's reasonable! But RM118 is not too bad also la, so no complaints from me
pro akkie (9 days ago)
How much would the cvt fluid cost?
Kon Wai Luen (8 days ago)
Not sure. Havent change yet.
just doing minor service? no other complaint ?
crysisownz (8 days ago)
Kon Wai Luen if i change the headunit inside will it void the warranty?
Kon Wai Luen (8 days ago)
Yes minor service. There are some minor complaints la. Bumper paint mismatch, laggy infotainment, and small rattles.
kokjiean choo (9 days ago)
Hey kon, I owned a Persona MT that I bought this year, I have some issue with minor occasion rattle that came out from the passenger side of the dashboard near the airbag, would u recommend going to Mutiara Damansara SC for warranty?
Thanks! if from behind the dashboard on the driver side, I'm not sure about that, haven't had that sound before though, if coming from A-pillar, B-pillar and C-pillar is easier, just push the fitments back till they click into place
Kon Wai Luen (8 days ago)
Great info Cyrus! My car has some rattling from behind the dashboard at the driver side.
check first if the padding is still sticky then don't yank it out, let them do it.. Yeah, I replaced it for free and haven't given me any problems ever since
kokjiean choo (9 days ago)
Cyrus Wong Kiing Chien thanks for the info Bro, so I should just yank out the padding myself then? Did u replace a new padding?
Check under your glovebox, open the glovebox and just peek under the compartment to where the airbag module is located, sometimes the padding's adhesive comes lose cause of heat (maybe stuck in traffic or parked under sun for a long time) and would rattle whenever you're driving or idling or choking your clutch, same thing happened to my Iriz, yanked out the old padding (it's useless anyway because the adhesive is destroyed by heat), and replaced it for free at Proton COSE.
Faris Ariffin (9 days ago)
Bro, so far how’s the car’s interior and exterior condition ? No rattling and stuffs ?
john david (8 days ago)
i just done 3rd (10,xxxkm) service, use petronas 5/30 fully synthetic, this oil really good,u know wht i mean ;) , overall nothing issue, only bumper very poor colour mismatch.
Kon Wai Luen (8 days ago)
Exterior.... overall paint quality feels poor. Bumper colour has a minor mismatch. Interior... laggy infotainment and minor rattles. No major complaints.
Thayanand Palanisamy (9 days ago)
Bro, how long is the service duration for the semi-syn Petronas oil?
John L (6 days ago)
Fitri Zailani I see.
Fitri Zailani (6 days ago)
John L That one you have to ask Petronas and Proton. The 10k service intervals is only claim for Proton cars only. That is why the SE is only available at selected Proton Service Centre hence the name SE. The 800 one you can buy it at any retails shop but not the SE. Once I saw at retails (the SE) they sell it at 126 ringgit, I don't know how do they get that, but I have to consider it fake considering they sell other Proton oil without Proton originals signature at their bottle.
John L (6 days ago)
What's the benefit of the 800 over the 800 SE?
Fitri Zailani (7 days ago)
John L Seeing that they gave him the 800 instead of 800 SE semi. I don't think so. That one has been sold for RM 118 even before the SE was introduced.
John L (7 days ago)
Fitri Zailani seems like that SC overcharged Mr. Kon?
