Proton Edar clarifies viral Proton Preve accident pix

Proton Edar clarifies viral Proton Preve accident pix

A set of images picturing a Proton Preve suffering accident damage causing the front right wheel to appear crushed in has been making its way all around the internet today, especially on social media spaces such as Facebook and forums.

Proton Edar’s Facebook account has posted a clarification on what they are claiming actually happened with the car. According to Proton Edar, the accident happened around 4.45pm yesterday where the red Proton Preve in the picture driven by a Proton Edar sales advisor hit a divider and landed in a such a manner that caused the lower arm to break, resulting in the awkward position of the front wheel in the photo.

We think Proton Edar has used its social media channel effectively in this case – rather than try to bury the story it has come out to try to explain what actually happened (many people were coming up with their own conclusions on how the wheel ended up in such a position), and signed off with an advice to everyone to drive safe so that such accidents would not happen. Of course, only those at the scene would have really 100% known what really took place exactly. There doesn’t appear to be much other damage that can be seen on the car other than the wheel.

Perhaps the sales advisor was too enthusiastic about the new turbo engine’s torque. We at paultan.org would also like to remind everyone to drive safe. Proton has entered a new era with turbocharged engines in two of their models now – the Preve and the Exora Bold. The new turbo engine makes more torque at a lower RPM than most people are used to, so don’t go crazy before you learn your new car’s limits.

Give yourself some time to get acquainted with the car, which is especially hard to do if it’s a test drive unit – there’s definitely not enough time to learn the car’s full behaviour! It’s really not necessary to drive a test drive car as if you stole it just because you can – after all how often are you going to trash your car during your course of ownership?

You can click the image above to view the full message or head onto Proton Edar’s Facebook.

          • I hate proton because the moment the company’s got deficit they will propose to govt that people with 20 years old car need to scrap or trade in w proton 2k. Secondly i see many previous protons dont use real engine gaskets. Only use gasket glue only. Thirdly water can go to rear bonnet. Fourth, dashboard failure. Too much separate joints makes the dashboard rattles.

            Just because to protect Proton and crony, we all paid almost double for any car. Some more local model’s quality and spec is lower than export model which is selling lower price. Why double standard? Just do a test on Preve, use yr hand press hard on the body to feel and compare with other car with the closer price.

            Lots of people hates proton because they are one of the companies that causing us to pay almost double price for imported cars, and also for the price some paid for Proton, it’s way over price for a local manufactured car! Just compare the quality of Proton with any other foreign cars! Most protons failed Euro ncap test, while small cars like ford fiesta get good rating! Also most road hoggers are Ah Bengs driving proton! Some even modify the protons to the likes of BMW, Audi or least to said their twins like Lancer etc. If can’t affort the ori, just stick to what u paid! Don’t modify them like stupid assholes!

        • What is your comment when lambo get burned recently? That one is luxury-sport-car.. But then since it is not proton.. It seems like nothing wrong.. The same thing happened for toyota.. The whole world know.. With the brake problem, it still moving forward.. And what is your comment? People like you will said, that show how professional toyota when they dare to recall.. But when that kind of thing happened to proton, people like you will response.. ” you see.. Simple like this cannot do properly.. Still want to talk about global.. Go to ____! Stu___!”

          Most here is proton fanboy. Well understandable, it is proton article anywaybut Can we just have a good informative convo without slamming each other and just stating facts and individuals opinion? Btw this accident, i assume when they claims the accident happened at speed of 120km/h i found it quite hards to believe because in that speed the car (any car) damage should be more severe and after one accident myself i think perhaps that is the last speedometer reading before the driver hit the brake and slow down before hitting the devider . Hence explaines the lack of damage to the car.

          Personally i do believe proton’s car chasis is sufficiently strong. I got an accident in gen2 spinning twice on the road due to avoiding incoming traffic (i was driving about 140km/h) hit devider turns turtle slam into a roadside about 3m deep ditch and landing back first upside down. I kid u not only back winscreen smashed(but of course other tin parts of the car quite substantially damaged) . The rest of glasses including windscreen intact. I survive without s single scratch (except for the im a freaking good driver atitute). True story.

          The problem with preve is .. Price.. . Its not good looking (my personal opinion only). Got all (maybe more) bells and wistle like some korean offerings but doesnt have the badge. We are paying 2 times the actual price of foreign car in malaysia. On that logic proton should sell their car at half the price of comparable foreign cars.Who are we kidding for middle class to part with 70k (dammit, almost my whole year salary), a car is not just a need but a statement and unfortunately owning a proton is not a good success statement nowadays. It should be priced at 55 to 60k max.

          Well said but proven nothing about the truth.

          Murders happen everyday, everywhere, but in Malaysia, the death of Altantuya, TBH, Kugan & Sarbari were not ‘explained ‘.

          Corrupted politics are everywhere, in every other countries, but in Malaysia, the truth about the RM250mil cow project was not handled well.

          Cheats in any contest is so common, let alone during election, which happens in all countries too. But in Malaysia, every cheat uncovered – be it phantom voters, foreign temporary voters… The truth was never explained convincingly.

          The same with this Proton accident, it might be a genuine accident – be more transparent, tell all to convince the public that it was not as what they imagined. The Malaysian public is not arrogant – just that too many incidents happened went unexplained well, causing most of to lose faith with government related entity.

          I am sure, if Proton cares to reveal more of the truth, it will win back more potential customers. The truth always shines!

          Just my 2¢ sharing!

Lucky for you, today is sat, our weekly “family” dinner, my uncle, holds ME, and EE and his sons, one EE, the other working in US, holds physics degree from and working in chicago, now live by facetime, would like to say this…watch the 1st video, its 45mile an hour test, the second one give you an idea of 80km/h crash, at 40-44sec. mark, and the third, maybe our saleman think he is in a carpark competition. the s2000 hit a curb too. the last one is by my dad request, asking suv not to drive too fast,

            kereta tu bergerak dengan laju, ada daya momentum. Bukan statik. Tentulah ia akan melambung dan terhempas ke bumi balik dalam keadaan nose dive beberapa darjah. bila cara peluncuran masa jatuh tak seimbang, arm atau screw atau nut yang berkaitan tentu tercabut.

            Dulu aku kutuk Gen2 macam kau la… lepas tu aku beli jugak. Then sampai sekarang okey pulak. Janganlah jilat ludah sendiri macam aku. Kau kalau dah tengok Preve potong / cucuk kereta kau jangan deengki pulak. Preve tu pun nampak besar dan mahal tau.

            Sebelum proton nak jual Preve, dia kena buat macam2 test. kes ni terpencil jer….Ferrari pun terbakar kat jalan. Banyak yg komen mengarut2 tanpa berfikir.

            Alza mmg boring. Tapi to buy a Proton? no more. No matter what its name or design.

            I was a proton fan. So much in love with Proton. Some of my family members bought Proton. Some have problems but I wont mind after looking at DSZ determination to improve Proton.

            I bought a Persona Hi Line. 1st Month, Power window problem. -fixed at EON service. 4th Month, Rear brake lamp faulty – fixed at EON Service. 5th Month, Gearbox problem. Now in EON service. 1 week, they said changed the computer box. then inform me issue replicated. they need another 2 weeks to order new part and replace the gearbox. Log case to proton i-care. A Proton engineer with “IR” title (yes he stated his title when introducing his name) called me and inform me he will look into it. The next day I called him for update, he asked me to call the service center myself.

            So there goes my Proton Persona, 5 months old. Thanks a lot Proton!!! Thats gonna be my 1st and last Proton product.

            BMW built is strong. That you cannot deny.

            Yet, the the M5 crashed at 300km/h without killing the driver is pure luck given how the incident actually happened. It will be another story if it was a head on collision or crashed with any moving or stalled objects.

            Nevertheless, this M5 did a good job minimizing the driver injury. I see curtain airbags deployed. And the shell is strong enough given the car had rolled several times.
            Anyway, drive safely!

            I remember last year, one whole Malay family in a 3 series BMW back from vacation passed away after crashing into truck that park at emergency lane Innalillah… That BMW totally crashed and burn. Accident happened in early morning maybe driver sleepy and hit the truck.

Persona beats Myvi at every area, handling, comfort, stability, quietness…….unless of course you’re talking about quality. But my myvi’s two power windows were not working but Persona’s ones were working fine all this while. Have you driven these two cars? If not, stop making baseless comment like this.

            Let’s not talk about the Jap and the Conti.

            My conclusion is every cars has its own problems… Just hope the SC & manufacturers will respond positively.

            In P1 case, I see marked improvements in how they handle their customers.

        • True…dont really like the design of the Polo, but it is a global brand nevertheless and it has a proven motor…not to mention…VW has won numerous awards. Safety wise…VW is in a different league. As for this car..no one knows. The NCAP they are talking about is crap. If they want to go global, they should send it to be assessed by EURO NCAP. That is the benchmark everyone refers to…not some half past six NCAP or even Australian NCAP. So what if it scores 5 stars there? A Proton has never scored more than 3 stars under EURO NCAP. I think they are not confident yet to send the car over. They would rather sell the car to the Malaysians first..ie use them as test mules…

          • It’s true that euro ncap Choose the cars they want to test, however a responsible manufacturer will send in their car for assessment by sponsoring the test. There should be a budget allocated for this. I’m sure Proton did this for their Waja. I doubt euro ncap chose to assess the Waja which never sold in huge numbers in Europe in the first place. They should do the same for Preve to give the car some credibility when it comes to safety. As it says in the website, manufacturers are allowed to send in their cars by sponsoring the test.

      Only that , the relevant department at P1 should think something that is original.
      And , to be better , educating all , no matter who , about road safety..

      How about this? If they can make a car that they claim to be the best from them , so doing some kind of publicity seems like a piece of kacang right? Not saying that they need to use this same piece of junk.If they can send a car for crash test , or make a raksaksa pijak a car to show it’s so keras, better think for education to all.

      accident doesn’t always mean the car has to hit something. in this case, the car hit the divider which is low, so the bumper not affected. only tyre..yes, only the tyre hit the divider and the car slam down after that. the result is tie rod break.

      • Raoul on Apr 21, 2012 at 11:39 pm

        Agree with you Aswan.

        I was involved in a mishap and was in a similar situation with a volvo (that safe car brand) at around 90kmh only. so yeah, if it’s another brand, the same can be applied. I didnt drive it tho when it happened… so don’t shoot me, accidents can happen when you least expect it (malang tidak berbau).

        the arm bent and the car chassis has to be realigned and the tyre went into shape as what is in the picture. Nope, no bumper/body has substantial amount of distortion on my car when it happened, but it was a sad situation.

        this preve case is similar. if you look properly the bumper on the affected tyre was offset a bit. crumple zone worked, it crumpled to absorb the impact and returned back to original shape. maybe need to look at the hooks. dun blame the hooks not strong tho, it served a purpose – to absorb impact energy, for your and the car’s essential components’ safety.

        on cars nowadays crumple zone allocated at certain part of the car. usually the front hood (or where the engine is) and driver and passengers’ cabin have shell made from ultra high strength steel. crumple zone works in great ways, even at certain impact situation an engine is engineered to dislodge from the car, in order to divert the energy from the impact away from the passengers.

      • Actually, my relative who drove a Vios also hit a road divider or to be more specific, a concrete island at a junction. He was not going fast, as he was going to turn left, less than 40 km/h.

        As he wanted to turn left, a car from the left so he swerve right and his Vios ran over the concrete island. In that short process, the island concrete hit the Engine, Gearbox and also severely damaged the car lower chasis.

        Insurance assessed the damage and repairs was more than RM40K+. So, he got a new Car after some minor top-up

      Give a try to hit your current driving car to the divider and see if nothing happens to your car. Then start giving ngetive rating to Proton… No matter the car brands, every car will have impact in such accidents, unless as said by Mat Min Bucik (tank)..

      what we can see here is preve has poor control, good crumple zone but then again if at such a low speed the will crumple beyond drive means huge business for accident workshops

      Ball joints don’t simply come off. If it did, it won’t pop off the lower arm because there’s the weight of the front end bearing down on it. It will only come off if the car is jacked up.

      But in the event of a hard impact, it is possible for the front hub’s knuckle to fracture and break. Or, the ball joint pin to snap. These are not indestructible materials, people. They do have their mechanical limits.

      If you can prove that only Proton’s ball joint or knuckle can break from hard impacts and not other manufacturers’, please do so.

        The preve’s front suspension is carried over from Exora. No issues on exora.
        The wheel did not deform due to the material used AlSI7Mg which is heat treated This alloy has a very high uts if compared to other untreated alloy wheels.

        The good thind is that nothing broke off. Cars suspension are designed to deform under missused condition. If you know about fracture mechanics, ull understand this. In this case it was a curb strike at 120km/h. If there was a detachment on the suspension, the outcome of the accident would have been more severe.

      the sensor uses the speed of impact as opposed to travelling speed. those are 2 different values after taking into account of many factors such as braking force, crumple zone, tyre pressure, etc. and we don’t know that is this case.

      so many things are involved in an accident. if we don’t perform in a controlled environment, the chances of having an exactly same case is extremely rare.

    I believe, proton will not release a new car in such frigile condition. Otherwise, it should have fail during testing phase.

    On the oither hand, proton also has demostrated a different level of maturity in handling the publicity. The adoption of social network to reengage and spread the right info to the right group of people. Nice move.

    In anyway, for what had happened, time will prove a product.

    Preve only use 2 years to develop the whole car compare with other car makers which are using at least 3 years. i don know wat Proton want to prove…mayb they want to show to the world they can waste lots of money and make a failure car with a shorter lead time… compare with their previous model…

      If we Msian are given tankers also to drive, there will still be death on teh road coz of our own ATTITUDE. we are too arrogant when driving. we care about nothing when the steering wheel is right in our hand.

    I test drove this car the other day.I still felt the car was a bit sluggish off the traffic light,somewhat similar to what you get when u drive the Saga 1.3,but once the Turbo is kicks in at higher rpm its ok.But its kinda annoyingly slow off the traffic light.The handling is good,and the interior noise level is not as good i can hear the engine roaring and the turbo at low speeds.I also felt some kick back from the brake pedal when i brake. Anyone with similar experience?I think the low torque problem with Campro engine is still there also it has been marginally improved.Overall i think the car is good value for money..but the campro engine lets it down.

      To answer your first question, I experienced the same sluggish feeling when I met the first traffic light. And things got going at 2K rpm, as expected.

      To further answer your question, I have to ask a question; what is your expectation? May I know what you’re driving now? I drive a Sylphy. I was quite annoyed at first when the SA said I could not disengage the SAT to compare the refinement of the package. He said it must be done with another key that is left at the office and the test drive car is locked that way to give that conventional automatic to potential customer.

      But the SA let me test the car until I’m satisfied. I found the answer for you. You must accept that this car has only 1.6 litre displacement. And the turbo only kicks in at 2K rpm. Before that, the car does NOT behave like a 2 litre car YET. And the engine is not a free-revving unit (anyway, still new, still tight).

      If you want to extract the performance, that’s what the paddle shift is for. At the traffic light, regulate the gas pedal around 2K rpm (pedal to the metal if you have a heavy foot). And drive like a manual (don’t drive like a maniac).

      I wish there was a non-CFE model to test, but I think I’ve found the answer as well. It would be sluggish just like the CFE before 2K rpm. It won’t be as fun. Yes, the Campro is a letdown. Unless you have the RM73K for the CFE, might as well find another alternative (you won’t). I think it’s a trade-off la. We can’t have an engine that Proton doesn’t have yet, sourcing from others would be expensive and pointless.

      Don’t have the money? Just find another hobby for the fun you’re looking for. Else just drive safely with whatever car you can afford bro.

  • Something tells me, we will be seeing more accidents involving the Preve. Simply because of the mentality of some here thinking the Preve with soft turbo is like an Evo and wanting to smoke other makes just to prove a point. Utter stupidity and low level mentality. Can this be due to inferiority complex? Why need to drive so hard just to prove the Preve is better than Korean or Japanese makes? Just leave it. Even if the Preve manages to outrun another make at the traffic light… may not necessarily tempt someone who owns another more expensive make to change brands. so just let it be and drive civilized. the more such stunts Preve owners start to pull, they are just going to make a fool of themselves…like this guy in the red test car.

      This kind of foolishness is not limited to Preve test drivers, but across the whole range of spectrum called cars. Maybe it’s my pet peeve, but I found many Vios, MyVi and Avanza drivers with that kind of attitude. This is due to (probably) superiority complex driving the pseudo-T branded Milo tin cars. I won’t deny the power-to-weight ratio of these Milo tins, but just because you have a right foot doesn’t mean that others don’t.

      Don’t tempt others for a race la. When they won’t bother to entertain you doesn’t mean they can’t. Just with a drop of the overdrive button I can smoke all of you back to oblivion, but I want to return home to my family, safely. Let us all die of old age.

        Banyak factors causing this thing. Jangan cepat melalut. Inilah Malaysian. Suka buat conclusion sendiri, cepat menuduh, suka point fingers, lari dari masalah instead of solving that problem, suka condemn things, jarang bersyukur.

        Some of the PROBABLE CAUSING FACTORS namely:

        (1) It’s a normal Joe who drives that car, who was test-driving that car, not the SA himself, but Proton didn’t wanna say the car was on test-driving session.

        (2) That normal Joe may be just an average driver who is not competent to handle high-speed driving, high-speed cornering while car is equipped with extra power & torque and extra controls such as shift-tronic, paddle shifters and CVT own characteristic such as revving up while downshifting gear.

        (3) The centrifugal force that is reacted onto the arm, trailing arm, lower arm, vertical arm, tie rod & absorber/tower assembly must be taken into account in order to know at what point exactly the assembly got broken.

        (4) Having said all the above, studies must be made by Proton to make sure how sturdy the parts are. Material used, durability, strength and bendability of those arms. Arms are made in Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan & China. From my experience, Japan made the best parts. Followed by Taiwan, M’sia & last China.

        (5) Revise those parts quality. If you (Proton) need to do recall, please recall. This is a good incident to improve Proton for unknown facts, before it’s too late. If Proton needs to redesign the whole thing, please do so. Average uncles, aunties, kakak who already ‘considering’ this car might change their mind after being wrongly-informed by competitiors SA (Fiesta, Forte, Vios, bashers, anti-Proton) and they believe it. Scientific explanations are needed.

        (6) While me myself have high confidence in this car, this incident is a bit putting my ‘doubt’ level few marks higher.

        (7) Simple logics behind: If my previous Nissan & present Honda are using parts from Japan, which are firm, solid & durable – but Proton is a Malaysian-made car – so Japan is not making parts for Proton, are they? This can come to a conclusion that Proton has to, use Malaysian-made parts which are 3rd grade? Correct me if I’m wrong.

      I used to live near a nice spot in Penang where tow truck tontos used to wait during rush hour and post-party hours. Suffice to say, I’ve seen my share of interesting outcomes from accidents.

      This one looks like it could have hit a curb or clipped a median.

      A road median usually has broader base before tapering in for about 1.5 feet, then going straight up for another 1.5 feet. The car could have clipped the median, sending at least 2 wheels airborne and hence the broken arm upon landing. Of course, the damage to the vehicle depends on the angle of approach and the speed.

      Have you guys noticed you only sometimes see trye marks on road medians but not much scratch marks? These are usually made SUVs because of their higher clearance.

      I’ve seen an SUV go 3 wheels off the ground at just 50kmh after clipping a median. Some even turned turtle.

      As for a curb impact, I have to say that I’ve only seen this kind of damage on rear wheels where the driver probably lost the back during a fast corner, sending the rear skidding into the curb.

      FYI, I’m a BMW owner currently but my first two cars were Protons. Both makes have their own problems and I’ve been called an idiot for buying both makes by two different sets of people (mix of relatives and friends). In the end, it’s up to you. If you like the design, can live with the setbacks and most importantly – you can afford it, then buy it.

            a person can reach one place in an hour, yet, i still reach there after 2 hour,! slow and steady as oldtimer use to say.

            after long, i feel no different driving any car models. as long as dia tak buat hal, is good enough for me. my favorite car model is ford!

    Mmm…rarely come across broken lower arms these days unlike the Mini Minor in the fifties when it was a familiar sight. I find it difficult to accept the explanation provided by Proton i.e. for a lower arm to break after hitting a divider in these days of technology used in the manufacturing process? I believe it could be due to production issues. If this happens in the States, I am sure a thorough investigation would be carried out.

    Proton has done well with the Preve. I hope they will take pro-active approach to. investigate the actual cause and make their findings available to the car buying public.

      Ongtk , i believe you got wrong understanding of physics. The things is moving high speed, full of momentum. When it hit the divider, the car might got tossed to air a bit. by sheer power of the car weight and speed momentum it carry, this definitely broke even a M1 Abrams tank wheel too.

      Now please experiment this with your car. try ram any divider or bumper in 120km and see how high you car fly.

      If not, get an RC helicopter or rc car, you will learned that any accident caused a lot damage variations.

    U all sure it’s a 120km/h accident?? I wonder if the driver can remember it when it happened?? More like a cover up story. If that car hit a kerb at 120km/h with one front wheel….sure the car had turned turtle already. The driver must be very good bcos in that short period when his right front wheel hit the kerb at 120km/h, he/she managed to stir it to avoid turn turtle & broke the back wheel too.
    More like a 60km/h accident :P

    Let us cut the “Bull Shit” here. Why don’t we all go over to the showroom and test the Preve out. Since it is still technically not yours, put some endurance and other test on it. Let the salesperson “faint” lah. However beware, most likely insurance won’t cover for your for reckless driving. Now I bet Proton will not let anyone to test drive the car.

    2. get the personnel involved to come out and tell how it happened
    3. make an analysis of the crash
    4. mention the car safety qualities – how the car only suffer minor damages despite what happened

    voila, a disaster turned out to be marketing campaign.

  • paul & team, it was reported that the max torque for the CFE CVT gearbox is only about 220 nm. The CFE torque max torque is 205 nm at between 2000 – 4000 rpm. This means that the CVT gearbox will be subject to 93% of its max operating limit on a dailly basis. Would subjecting to such high stress shorten the life of the CVT?

    To put this in a different prepestive, its like driving V rated tyres with max speed limits of 240 km/h at doing 220 km/h on a regular basis. That is asking for trouble, isn’t it?

      I am no engineer so I can’t be sure of the norms but I assume that when someone defines a “limit”, the part would be designed and tested to be safely used up to 100% of the limit during the expected lifespan of the part. It’s only usage above limit which would pose problems.

    • Not 222 Nm but 215 Nm gearbox input torque. Which means the gearbox itself can withstand torque up to 215Nm max. So ok la with 205 Nm max torque from engine. No high stress issue or life shorten as long as it is operating within the limit.

    I had the chance to talk to a Proton sales man who drives the preve for test drive.
    According to him this may not be an accident after all.
    He claim the car was at about 40kmh doing the turn and suddenly the arm broke and the car stalled upon front right wheel displacement.
    However he suspect may be sales guys could have hit a bump or something at high speed in previous rides or prior to the incident, and that could have cracked / damaged the arm. According to him during test drives people like to drive into pot holes and uneven roads just to test the performance ect…not sure which is true but i seem to feel his explanation is more rational than what proton claims. No way you hit a 2 feet high divider without breaking the front bumper in my opinion.

      Agree with you Bro, looks like it either hit a hump or pothole. Looks like the arm that support the front tyre just give way and resulted in the awkward shape of the right tyre.
      A very bad thing Preve is trying to prove.
      Haven’t delivered cars to the buyers already accident.
      I hope nothing much more bad things will come out again..

      No la, truly an accident. Don’t believe? You can go check yourself there. Someone posted the location on Edar facebook comment somemore. Still have scratch marks on the divider and some break mark on the road.

  • I’ve hit a divider with my golf gti last year & i still think this preve is better because my gti need to change the whole front undercarriage, new set of front wheels, front bumper, the body need to be straightened a bit, but yet still my brembo kit is in great condition (lol). Just give p1 a chance, u cant just blame them because of their cars like that. Look at what happen to satria neo nowadays that made a lot of achievement until cusco itself sell a rally tuned one in japan. Anyhow, best luck to proton.
