i don’t buy the explanation. If hit the pavement the bumper would give way first, no? :mrgreen:

cover up

I don’t know why driver likes to drive fast in public roads. I suggest proton offer test drive for customer at sepang/track and let them rev all the way.

tat means east malaysia customers have to fly to sepang track and test drive as well? how interesting…

i don see the tyre line on the road… how come drive 120km?? i think is steering over turn it … ahahah
(I donno anything bout car)

An obvious cover up story.

Won’t the bumper goes kaboom first before the tyre :roll:

The bumper is I think same as any latest proton cars is pretty flexible… my guess is the pavement scrape through underneath and probably one of the tyres took the impact force in full and in short bends the tyre rod. At 120kmph that could probably be exactly what happened. You see this often when people speed and accidentally runs one tyre into a deep pothole like in… ahem… miri - kch road :X

i saw one preve testing near miri food court thursday around 5 30pm like that :mrgreen:

sponsor tambang belon juak lah…haha…

aiya proton high end mah…just like F1 can only drive in sepang lo…In general, proton = F1

huhu proton, proton. Ok lah let the first timer go buy proton and test the reliability and durability for themselves at the expenses of their car loans.

I’d go for vios, though is a bit more costly -in this case i’d sacrifice performance for long term reliability and resale value. :slight_smile:

hit divider? u didn’t see any skid marks, i didn’t see any damaged on the bumper… u know la how high the divider is…

to think of it, if the picture is taken after its been moved/towed away. then sure there will be no skidmarks.

From Proton Edar:

We would like to address concerns regarding pictures of a damaged Proton Prev circulating on the web.

At around 4.45pm yesterday, one of our sales advisors was involved in an accident while driving from Jalan Sentul towards Jalan Pahang in KL, when the Proton Prev that he was driving hit a divider and landed awkwardly causing the lower arm to break.

While we’re happy to report that our sales advisor is unhurt, our test-drive unit, however, was damaged as a result of the accident. So, remember to buckle up and drive safe because accidents can happen - to anyone and to any car.

Woohoo Malaysian Pride!

some members of cari chinese forum indeed went to the accident site and they do saw fresh skid marks on the dividers…120km/h for a tyre to land at the divider will break the shaft. Why must the bumper be off before the shaft breaks :?: Preve is quite high as a C segment compact.

Proton mmg cheap, but long term reliability kinda bad. If u plan on keeping a car fr a long time, bttr nt go for proton le. those who want cheap car n plan to upgrade in 4 to 5 yrs cn la.
