Aku Dan Kereta, Gen2 aka Jenny

This is a contest post for SalamMedia (yes, even as the owner, I want to win the iPadMini!)

RichPlan4u is an online service for Car Road tax and Insurance renewal agent. Something similar like MyEG, except they are offering 15% off on top of NCD. You can refer to this link for the terms and you can also prebook the discount by submitting this form.

So my story goes on about my love and hate relationship with my Gen2.

It’s been 8 Years plus I have driven/owned the car. It has been with me through ups and down, street racing, dates, road trips, chances are, everything. To be frank Proton Gen2 is probably one of the most problematic car I have ever driven, but cars and cars. When I had my Mustang I never thought I would be able to find a supplier of 1964-68 classic Mustang parts but I found it at

I could list down all the problem but I think I should refrain from doing that now.

Few days back, my wife borrowed my car, since I ride daily now. Yes, she can drive a manual car and I complain a lot about her driving. Anyways, she literally broke the steering while pressing the horn.

Can you believe it, by pressing the horn and it breaks to smithereens? Ok, maybe not smaller pieces. It is broken!


I remember running into the car in front and the airbag never deployed. When I called Proton and asked about it, they said I have to be at certain speed for it to deploy. I don’t know how they calculate the G, but that is one lame excuse. It’s like telling me to break my neck first, then it will deploy. They also told me to bring the car to the factory, to get it fix, I have to pay for the airbag and 1 week in the bay. Wow, that’s a handful!

If you ever want to buy a car, don’t buy Proton. You’d probably say it’s my luck, but if in 100 cars manufactured and there are at least 17 faults in a brand new these Proton, it’s no longer luck. It just means quality is secondary.

Anyways, if you want to renew roadtax insurance and get 15% off, book now. Offer ends 31st March.
