    And cmon....cultus's design is exactly as old as SAGA's!

    plus..SAGA is giving the most horsepower in its class in PK...correct me if i am wrong!
    RX-7? An RX-7? Really? I hope you know it's just a sports car with a washing machine under the hood.

    nice car.very good if a bit of boby design is altered.but at the moment if u resale this, no one will pay even 5 lac for this....i think
    the problem is not with the car but our mindsets. even if u put japanese junk, people would luv 2 buy saying "AAY TAY JAPAANEI AAYE"

    My answer-NOT.NOT because i'm of Indian origin.Mahathir Mohammed, the man behind Proton is half-Indian.His father is of Indian Tamil Muslim origin!.Indians consitute the largest ethnic group in Malaysia.I'm all for Malaysia.I'm leading upto something here!.Travel with me...

    Proton is in deep trouble financially.It is
    now in the process of being bought out by GM.Even Malaysians have stopped purchasing these cars that have been around for a long time.GM is developing some Daewoo variants to be sold as Protons.All this will happen in the next year.Proton is in the process of entering the Indian market, as a 'quid-pro-quo' for TATA cars being given access to the Malaysian market.BUT, the Indians are getting the new Daewoo variants.NOT, these obsolete Mitsu variants or the quirky Lotus disaster.What are they selling in Pak?.'Why?', is another question that should be addressed too.Regarding pricing!.Some soul searching is required, is my humble opinion.They say "charity begins at home".And, i don't mean it in the literal sense of the word.You can come to your own conclusions.

    I think saga can grab Market if some Modification made to its body by Aerodynamics and Some thing Dasing and good looking but at same Price.

    Otherwise its already experiencing the Market taste.

    dude..dont make ur own assumptions about indians being the largest ethnic group in Malaysia ..LOL

    First are the bumiputera ..
    Melayu..

    Second are the Chinese...
    Third are the indians..

    Proton has not been bought by GM Motors..there are still on going negotiations with VolksWagen and GM..none of these companies have bought Proton ...clear..

    This Saga/Iswara is still widely bought in Malaysia by many ppl i know personally as well as what ive seen on the road..the local price here falls around 4.5 PKR lacs and on leasing the monthly payment is very cheap..its actually around 26K RM..

    Kindly post accurate information for fellow forummers

    Regards..

    No offense mate!.I included the Chinese under "Oriental".My mistake.I stand corrected.As far as the Proton purchase , i stand firm.It is only a matter of time before the current models are phased out.Ten years ago there was only Proton in the Malaysian car market.Today competition has driven Proton virtually out of business.I wish Proton and all Malaysians well!.My comment was specific to these cars being sold in the Pak market.Anyone buying a new car will do so under the assumption that it will be current and serviceable for atleast a minimum of three years!.

    Yikes!.26k a month for a 25 year old design??.Lord have mercy!.'Tis better to live in Dhaka where there is no duty on imported used cars!.LOL!..."Iswara" is the name of a south Indian Hindu deity!....cool!

    Dude no offence but i just wanted to correct what u said earlier..

    26K RM is the total price yaar ...convert to PKR is around 4.5 lacs..

    To be honest..may be the production will phase out in the future i.e after the merger..but they will keep the service and support for the cars..just like they did for Putra..

    @nickatnite
    Thanks sharing information as you mentioned above. I don't beleive what you said about Proton

    With due to respect! I don't think that GM will buy Proton. GM is so keen to buy Lotus but not Proton because Lotus has in advanced technology. GM and Proton do have a couple of things in common: they are both steadily losing market share. GM has problems globally, and I don't think Southeast Asia is the solution.

    I say that Proton and Lotus should not be sold to GM.

    My friend owns saga too and he always runs in CNG. He is very satisfied his car. Saga's price is great in the Paki market and it is the same price of Cultus and Santro but Saga has 1.3Litre included CNG kit and has a bigger capacity. I suggest people who don't have enough money would be affordable to buy Saga.

    @psychic_monkey
    Brother! I totally agree with you as what you said above. I hope Saga would continue existing in the production lines after Proton to be sold to anyone except GM.

    For Pakistan : Get a local Cultus instead! This car is horrible.

    If you can only afford a car in this price range, you will kill yourself with a Saga. It is a gimmick. Dont fall for the different design. It's new for you and because of that ALONE many of you are risking your hard earned money on an unreliable, lousy, cheap, unsafe and depreciable car. No one knows of this car. The people that do say it sucks. You wont find spare parts. If you do, they'll cost a fortune.

    The cultus is a newer design than this. It's more reliable. It's safer (YES, THATS A FACT). It's cheaper to maintain. And you'll save your money when you decide to sell it.

    TooFast,
    Would you agree, a cultus is a better bet for a Pakistani family looking for a 500,000pkr car? Would you also say the Cultus looks like a well constructed/fit-and-finish type of car compared to the Saga? I do.

    Guys, remember - Dont buy a 500,000pkr car you cant afford to keep running. If you're looking for a car that's so cheap I question if you need to be burdened with expensive repais. This car will drain your pockets dry. Sure you'll get your foot in a Saga. No one will know what it is ofcourse, but in 3 years down the road you'll hate yourself.

    I would agree with anonpak and would buy Suzuki even they are crappy instead of proton. Suzuki is a best bet for Pakistani family unless they are rich

    @ Guys for Proton Saga

    What is the actual sale pattern of this car here? I think that its now several months since this car was launched; I have not seen even a single one on the roads? Why?
