In conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations and Proton’s 30th birthday, the national carmaker is offering a free 30-point safety inspection at all of their authorised service centre nationwide.

The programme starts today – coinciding with the launch of Proton’s first ever Saga back in 1985 – and will be ongoing till 31 October 2015. This inspection will see certified technicians checking fluid levels, battery, wiper blades, radiator cap, pedal operation, suspension system, steering linkage, ball joint systems; just some of the 30 parts (see complete list below).

Besides the free inspection, customers will be given free consultation on proper engine and car maintenance as well as how to differentiate between genuine and imitation parts. As part of their 30th birthday, Proton is offering discounts on parts such as absorber, brake, clutch and timing belts.

To ensure the safety of their passengers during the Balik Kampung journey, Proton will station five teams at selected Petronas and R&R stops for those who are already on their way back home. These stations are as below:

1. Klang Valley (Petronas NKVE at km 15.3, Damansara Bound) – 9th, 10th and 11th July

2. North-South/PLUS Highway (Petronas Juru, Penang) – 13th, 14th and 15th July

3. East-Coast (Petronas Tok Giring, Terrenganu) – 13th, 14th and 15th July

4. East-Coast Highway (R&R Gambang, Pahang) – 13th, 14th and 15th July

5. Southern Area (Petronas Seremban, Negri Sembilan) – 13th, 14th and 15th July

That’s not all. The 30-year old brand is now offering special deals on all new Proton cars including an RM3,000 rebate for aspiring Proton owners turning 30-years old this year. There’s also their ‘Even More Value’ campaign offering 100% financing scheme for government officials and 1.99% interest rate per annum; all while enjoying a 7-year extended warranty programme from the automaker.
