Evolution of the Proton Saga in 35 years  - The pride of Malaysia or wasted potential?

Proton was one of the few carmakers to emerge from the 80s (coincidentally, Geely was also part of that small batch). The first car to bear the Proton name was the Proton Saga. Based on the Mitsubishi Lancer Fiore, the Saga was a big deal for Malaysia when it first came to fruition in 1985.Thirty five years later, the Saga remains highly relevant. The compact saloon is affordable and perfect for young families. It is a worthy successor to the “Saga” name. Having evolved over 35

Why scheduled oil changes are important for your car

The most “car maintenance” some us have done ourselves have probably been checking the engine oil dipstick, ATF dipstick, or at the very least, refilling the wiper fluid.

Once upon a time, a man didn't change the oil in his Audi TT for 130,000 km.With complete service packages offered when you buy a new car, you rarely need to make a choice when it comes to engine oils.
