Proton Jumbuck Q&As

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

  • Small ute options in Australia?

    Sadly, the Jumbuck has gone the same way as the Subaru Brumby — the world now wants bigger utes. In any case, the Jumbuck was based on the old Mitsubishi Lancer, which meant it was barely safe, and Proton has insufficient funds to develop a new model.

  • Good small ute?

    The Jumbuck only got a two-star safety rating from ANCAP and the Mighty Boy was regularly rated in the bottom 10 cars sold in Australia for safety. You should not consider either but get something like a pre-loved Nissan Navara.

  • Proton Jumbuck ute alternative

    The short answer is no-one. Subaru was first with a half-tonne ute in its Brumby, which I owned and loved. But it has no plans for a replacement and neither does Proton, as all utes are now one-tonne and bigger. Hyundai revealed a ute based on the ix35 compact SUV at Detroit, but any production version is still a couple of years away.

  • Poor Proton experience

    The issues you are concerned about are not ones I would expect would make a carmaker want to buy the car back, but they are certainly things that need to be fixed under warranty and you must make sure they are fixed. That they don't seem to care about you and aren't responsive to your requests are issues you need to take up directly with the dealer. I would suggest you make an appointment to meet the dealer principal to discuss your problems. Attempt to get from him/her an agreement they will repair the car as they must do and work out a timetable of when it might happen. Although you are clearly frustrated, and you are probably right to be so, it hasn't in my view gone far enough to consult lawyers. That would be the final step.
