Proton Revels In Latest Reliability Research Undertaken By Direct Line Breakdown
BRISTOL, UNITED KINGDOM – July 13, 2011: Proton Cars has had cause to celebrate following new research released by Direct Line Breakdown which has revealed the most reliable cars on the UK’s roads.
According to the research, Malaysian-owned car manufacturer Proton’s range of cars have been listed as the fifth least likely to suffer mechanical breakdown, coming hot on the heels of Honda, Toyota, Mazda and Nissan.
The results are in contrast to general consumer consensus which saw Volkswagen, Mercedes and BMW topping the poll and were perceived to be the most mechanically reliable by motorists. The research on which cars are most likely to breakdown was based on Direct Line Breakdown’s call out records which shows that consumer beliefs are inconsistent with reality.
Simon Park, General Manager, Sales and Marketing, for Proton Cars (UK) Ltd said: “We are proud to see Proton ranking at number five in this research, and it is testament to the genuine experiences of our extremely loyal customer base. Many of our customers have owned a Proton for years and have been very satisfied by how reliable they are.”
Proton’s current line-up includes the fun and spacious 5-door Savvy city car, the sporty Lotus inspired 3-door Satria Neo and new Satria Neo Sport, 5-door GEN-2 family hatchback and the 4-door GEN-2 saloon and LPG dual fuel GEN-2 ecoLogic range.
