Proton introduces ’60 Minutes Express Service’ at 21 outlets – if they exceed the time, you don’t have to pay!

Proton introduces ’60 Minutes Express Service’ at 21 outlets – if they exceed the time, you don’t have to pay!

To enhance customer service and satisfaction, Proton has introduced the 60 Minutes Express Service programme, initially available at 21 service centres nationwide from today. Under this initiative, Proton promises regular maintenance service in 60 minutes, including a free 18-point quality and safety check. Should they exceed the promised one-hour, you won’t have to pay a cent for labour.

“A frequent complaint we receive from customers is that it takes too long to service their Proton. More often this is attributed to the number of vehicles that are being attended to at the service centre at any one particular time. In order to address this, we now have dedicated service advisors to attend customers, dedicated technician to work on the vehicles, and dedicated service bays to get the job done,” said Proton Edar CEO Mohamad Shukor Ibrahim.

“It’s much more than just changing the lubricants, oil and air filters but a detailed service check-up. As we continue to improve our services across all areas, we will be working aggressively to reduce the servicing time even further. And while customers wait for their car to be serviced, they can also enjoy our warm hospitality and take advantage of our WiFi facility,” he added.

The 60 Minutes Express Service programme is only available via appointment from Mondays to Fridays from 8.00am to 5.15pm, and is only applicable for basic maintenance service which includes lubricant change. Look out for a 60 Minutes Express Service logo or call Proton i.care at 1800-88-0888 to find out which centres are included. The programme will soon be extended to cover all Proton Edar service centres.

      I agree… I was just thinking of that. How is there any assurance to commit such services based on time factor? Customers do not know what were done as we are not allowed to be at our vehicles to observe the service. I would appreciate if any part change/lube service rendered should be shown to customer to build our confidence.

        ong, that is a definite problem, but my theory is that maybe the situation is like this:

        proton center doesn’t have to bother about doing a good job or whether listening to client, because every day there is someone buying a new proton, which means every day they got new customer, confirm. and even the ones that they do a bad job, most likely will return to them because they don’t want to void their warranty.

        ah beng work shop tauke knows that around him got thousands of other ah beng workshops, so if he doesn’t do a good job, customer can just go to another workshop. he will lose customer. and also if that customer spreads bad word-of-mouth, his business will lose out even further.

      It’s ashamed that when P1 wants to improve their service, loads of people look down on them, bila nak maju kalau asyik berfikiran negatif sahaja?

      Hope P1 will continue to improve on each and every aspects.

    60 minutes for car service?
    rushing staff doing their job, will produce low quality finishing.
    to increase customer satisfaction, proton must prepare good condition in waiting lounge like free internet, more seats like sofa, free tea/milo machine, create environment to let the customer forget their waiting. i’m afraid, if you force your staff to do their work in rushing time, they will more tension and low performance.

      Fast service is important too, as it can tell whether those mechanics in a typical service centre are efficient or not. If it’s just for changing motor oil + oil filter, it should not take long; it is bullshit to wait for centuries just to change the motor oil and oil filter. Like in a particular kapchai bike, around 5 minutes is what to take for thanging the engine oil and oil filter.

    The thought of how those cars were assemble in the 1st place were done with shiity PDI approval already give me doubt their shitty 60 min service.

    Its like saying”Because of the shitty quality of the car we dont mind repairing it as many times as required by the customer.”

    If they are going to give us a ‘macdonald’ kind of service we can bet its going to be shiity.

    Its like going to see a doctor REGULARLY who promise the waiting time to see him is not more than 15 mins.

      well i 2nd that mate!

      reason being from my experience with Proton service as well. But first off, I would say AT LEAST proton is trying sumthing to improve here. a lil appreciation for tat.

      But like wat alfie60 said, what customers seek nowadays is quality product and services! we dun mind waiting as long as its a job well done. Even with so much time (say 2-3 hours), you still manage to screw up a simple task. not to mention that juz a simple fixing of tail light cant be done properly.

      Also I was just wondering about the service here. As my 1 year old Neo CPS interior light has never been working since I got the car. Everytime i have a service appointment at 9am, with additional fixing of 1 simple light, they wil ask me to stay until 5pm for the repair! like seriously WTF? takes you half a day to fix the simple light?

      Whether proton is blind or juz plain ignorant, i dont know! but seriously like all my previous post, i will repeat this again. They nid a good tight slap to wake up again!

        If Proton is selling WATER to the public and if their source of water is dirty and tainted they will came up with a scheme to sell us SHITTY WATER FILTER with free installation instead of rectifying the problem at source.

    if u arrive late or early, no appointment in advance or car got problem other than regular maintenance of course laa will take more than 60 minutes…

    what is wrong with u guys? don’t raise irrelevant issue lar… i’m quite a proton basher too..
    just let us bash positively for the sake of national make improvement…

  • My last experience was the worst ever, just a normal service and I have to wait for 6 hours. So I opt out from servicing in their service centre anymore. With this new express service, I can’t imagine what’s gonna missing in my car.

    hahaha…
    lawak2 bace komen basher

    bagus la diorg nak improve bt 60 minutes service same as perodua they have 1 hour service… lg pown service nie more to minor service yg tukar minyak itam,oil filter, air filter and etc small thing and 18 check points

    lgpown dier offer service nie tuk org yg bt appointment on monday to friday which is weekdays during office hour which is convenient for people yg x nak amik cuti to service their car especially yg first timer or org yg busy…

    klau da korg terlebey masa sgt nak tggu time service kete tuh dan x yakin ngan kualiti kerja diorg, x yah la bt appointment, just come and wait especially on weekend…

  • Good step proton, but will see how the service and quality,
    before, just change the lube will take me 2-3hours at SC,
    maybe bawah pokok can be done in 20min, but how about after service that their can guarantee you? i dare to say their will lepas tangan lor.
    Indeed i’m more confident to service my proton at authorize SC rather than ah-beng workshop.

  • This 60 minutes service is only for regular maintenance like changing of engine oil, oil filter and the like plus the 18-points safety and quality check. Read again – regular maintenance.

    So, why so sceptical? Not that Proton promised to overhaul the engine or change the timing belt within 60 minutes.

    Proton MUST be desperate!! The CEO DSZ is not thinking straight.

    The cock up is piling up.

    1)Got Malaysia Rally driver Karam but give whitemen to drive our rally car, unpatriotic yet expect us to patriotic to buy shitty Proton cars.

    2)Using radio DJ to lie for them that their cars is good hoping the public will believe it if its repeated many time on air.

    3)Lifetime warranty for power window!! Some more using the poor taxi driver to endorse the product because he never call back. Saw in the STAR newspaper last week one of the vendor of the power window Delloyds ‘got’ his Datuk Sri from Pahang.Business must be good for him! Proton buying more parts from him for replacement. We all know what the warranty means unlimited REPLACEMENT!!

    4)By putting body stripe on the SAGA and calling it executive is stupid. Its a taxi car. I think if we allow DSZ to paint the SAGA in gold paint and gold plated some parts of the interior of the car,he probably wants to call it SAGA PREMIER or SAGA PRESIDENT and the cars is fit for our ministers and sultans.

    5)The launch of AMP replacement parts is pathetic.Bad enuf made us buy the overpriced shitty cars cause got no other choice, now tells the government to ban import of cars parts because of safety and imitation problems.IF our safety is their concern then why is AIRBAG is still optional!!!! WTF

    Proton problem is still quality. NO amount of PR and media spin can change it.

    • What quality issues we’re talking about?

      We know about famous problem with power window, door handle and the like. But those was from the previous models especially Waja.

      I’ll be grateful if you care to list down the quality issues on the present models namely Saga, Persona and Exora.

      If you put the same amount of effort that you put into bashing Proton cars you’d probably be able to buy an imported car by now.

  • I don’t see how “express service” will help things out.

    Even the current “standard speed” also produce lousy quality and bad service.

    What more do you expect from “express service”?

    Most probably, you’ll find the quality of service provided would be even lower (as you try to speed up engineering). Speeding up things tends to produce more human error.

    The criteria that Protong needs to improve is the Quality Assurance and Quality Checks (QC/QA) of its products/parts vendors. The quality of works provided by their Factory Staffs at the assembly line. Finally, they need to improve the 1980’s fuel guzzling Campro engine.

    Dear Paultan.org and Co…

    i think, if you have another posting about Proton or Perodua… dont bother writing long articles… enough by posting its headline…

    because, most ppl commenting here, seems not reading your post…

    they read the headline, and jump into comment box.

    “A frequent complaint we receive from customers is that it takes too long to service their Proton. More often this is attributed to the number of vehicles that are being attended to at the service centre at any one particular time. In order to address this, we now have dedicated service advisors to attend customers, dedicated technician to work on the vehicles, and dedicated service bays to get the job done,”

    assigning experienced personnel regarding car maintenance to take appointment calls should be a great preemptive measure in case the car may have to be attended thoroughly… so the dedicated 60 minutes servicing bay will not be compromised…

    my experience with sc during my PE 1st service, i told the personnel about my PE abnormalities during my appointment call, but they seems to have no idea about the abnormalities and reply “takpe bang. bwk dl kereta nnt kita check apa masalah..”

      i think this scenario is the biggest culprit besides the number of vehicles attending resulting the long waiting time… not that the mechanics working terhegeh-hegeh with the vehicles…

      so, understanding the scenario that is common, i think there is nothing to worry about the express service as the mechanics will work on the vehicles as pernormal…

  • I think a lot of people are confused with real service time and waiting time. Normally if you go to any SC, it is the waiting for your turn that really eats your time. The real service is normally less than one hour. I believe what Proton is promising is less waiting time, and less rushing for every car that comes in.

    If you feel that other car SC can eliminate the waiting time, do let me know, k…

  • This 60 mins refer to what?
    a) Time taken from they start working on your car, or
    b) Time from customer check-in?
    My experience, I arrived at the 9am as per my appointment, they put in my service sheet completion target time 11am.
    Yes, they did achieve the 60 mins because they only start service my car at 10am.
    I guess the purpose of the appointment is just to ensure they limit the customers so that they can go back & close shop on time.
