Proton Gen.2 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Proton Gen.2 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • My car had its electric wiring redone and now it doesn't work.

    Get out of the car, it’s a money pit. Have an auto electrician check the electrics for you. I assume the transmission is automatic, if so have it serviced, but it could need a rebuild.

  • 2011 Proton Gen 2 can't get in gear

    It would seem likely to be an air leak in the system, which you should look for. Perhaps a damaged hose, loose fitting, or something like that.

  • Gen2 fuel consumption

    Proton's official consumption for the Gen 2 GXR is 7.9 L/100 km average, but 6.2 L/100 km on highway and 10.8 L/100 km on urban use. The latter suggests your car is not far away from the company's claims. Normally the trip computer is more accurate because it measures the fuel being injected into the engine, whereas the old fashioned method of fill-to-fill measurement has plenty of room for error. But in your case there is reason to suspect the trip computer, even more so when you've been told there's a dealer bulletin to check for fuel consumption. That suggests there is something wrong. Take it to the dealer and have it checked as has been recommended.
