Proton has launched the Proton Certified Pre-Owned (PCPO) website. It allows customers to browse through current stocks available at selected dealers nationwide as well as quickly trade-in their existing car for great deals on a new Proton model.
Proton established a Used Car Management (UCM) division, which was tasked to grow a network of dealers to sell used cars alongside new ones. There are now 36 Proton outlets that feature the PCPO programme.
There are several requirements before qualifying for PCPO; cars less than seven years old with less than 130,000km covered at the time of trade-in, no flood or major accident damage that may affect their structural integrity, and each car undergoes a comprehensive 201-point inspection. Each car is given a new battery, fresh engine oil and an oil filter too.
Proton will also sell cars from other brands that have been traded-in via its PCPO website. In this instance, the vehicles do not receive an extended warranty from the company but will still be thoroughly inspected and repaired if necessary prior to being put up for sale.
“Aside from helping to drive new car sales the aim of Proton’s UCM division is to help stabilise and gradually build the residual value of Proton vehicles. By offering high quality used cars, we hope to see a general lifting of prices for all our models, making it easier for customers to obtain competitive financing rates and raising trade-in values when they want to buy a new car,” said Roslan Abdullah, CEO of Proton Edar.
