The Power Window


Proton claimed that their power windows are now better with zero defects and vast improvements.

Funny fact: After two glorious years, I now can wind down my window, but I can’t put it back up. Well, I can… but it take’s extra effort.

I don’t wind down my windows that often, so I am actually puzzled because people say ‘to keep the Proton power windows intact and lasting, use it less‘. Practically, it sounds like a good idea because the less wear, the less tear, right?  But I don’t wind down my windows because there’s this invention call ‘car air conditioning’ which I must have switched on when i go in my car, and it’s not because of that saying.  After all, I bought a car for use, not for show.  So, what gives?

Well, since I bought my car prior to the announcement of the ‘lifetime warranty’ for Proton power windows, I may not be eligible to use that ‘lifetime warranty offer’ but I’m bringing my car for a quick check up anyway, and I hope the repairs will fix this ‘powerless windows’.  No lifetime warranty means less money in my wallet =(

Zero defects my ass…


  1. hehehehe. Do you still have warranty? Maybe you can get it repaired for free.

    My car MyVi is now 6 years old and starting to give me headache. Last month i spent hundreds to repair the wheel bearing.

    Last weekend spent again almost RM500 to change the belting. And now i have to find money again to repair the absorber.


  2. haha..same goes to my friend’s saga..well sometimes(which is very rare)it works well,without the need to push it up,this is a very interesting fact .haha

  3. Hi Cyril, just wondering if you’ve “redeemed” the offer yet. I ask because I couldn’t find any info elsewhere. Short of calling EON, I thought I’d see what the first-hand experience is like 😀
