Proton has announced a “free inspection service” for the Proton Exora Bold CFE made between October 2011 till April 2014 due to a possible leakage in the radiator connector.

“In response to the feedback from our customers with regard to the Exora Bold CFE radiator connector issue, Proton has taken a precautionary step to provide free inspection to owners.
