Perodua led the market again and it can be assumed that the Myvi was again the best-seller in the country (the Malaysian Competition Commission does not allow sharing of model data)

Kia sales recorded an impressive 151% increase during 2012

76% increase in sales saw Volkswagen move 4 places up from 10th position in 2011

Toyota continued as the best-selling non-national brand with strong sales of the Vios as well as its hybrid models

Although Honda sales increased in spite of short supply of vehicles, it slipped one position. In December, it recorded a 7.8% market share, the highest ever since Honda Malaysia was established

Edaran Tan Chong Motor put in a strong effort in 2012 and though the new Nissan Almera came late in the year, the brand was able to move up another position

    TWICE AT PROTON EDAR SANDAKAN, I WAS REFUSED TO TEST DRIVE THE PREVE WITH THE REASON THAT NO KEYS AVAILABLE FOR WEEKENDS (SAT AND SUN). THE SAME GOES TO EON MILE 4, SANDAKAN. AND WHEN INSPIRA WAS ACQUIRED FOR A TEST DRIVE, I WAS ASKED TO GO TO PROTON EDAR.

    COME ON PROTON ! WITH SUCH ATTITUDE, I WONDER WHAT WILL IT BE IN YEAR 2020?

    I M NOT A GOVERNMENT SERVANT WHO CAN GO OUT CURI CURI FOR A TEST DRIVE DURING WORKING DAYS . AND NOT ME TO TELL YOU, NORMALLY, THE WHOLE FAMILY WILL BE FREE TO GO FOR A TEST DRIVE ONLY ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY … SO TO PROTON, TO WHOM YOU WANT TO SELL THE CAR TO ?

    AS A MALAYSIAN, I SUPPORT PROTON AND I CONVINCED MY WIFE TO ACCEPT A NATIONAL CAR AS I HAD DRIVEN A BASIC PERSONA AUTO FOR A 12 DAY TRIP WHEN I WAS IN SEMENANJUNG. AND I LIKED PERSONA SO MUCH.

    BUT WITH SUCH DIFFICULTY IN TESTING A PROTON IN SANDAKAN, I M DISAPPOINTED WITH YOUR SERVICE … PROTON MUST HAVE CHANGED – BUT THEY PREFER TO STAY LIKE ONE TIME – OVERSTOCK OF WAJA ! YOU CHOOSE THIS NOT US !
