Proton has just expanded their dealership network in East Malaysia, as the third 3S centre in Kota Kinabalu run by Shirba Auto is now in operation.
Carrying Proton’s new corporate image, the new facility with a built-up area of 2,259 square meters will offer 12 service bays with 6 service hoists, a comfortable customer lounge with free Wi-Fi, as well as ample parking space for customers’ convenience.
Proton’s ongoing effort to upgrade its existing outlets and expanding their dealership network has been progressing steadily. The company currently has 104 3S and 4S centres nationwide, making them the brand with the most number of outlets to offer sales and services under one roof.

The new Proton 3S is located at KM 18, Jalan Tuaran, Tebobon Menggatal, 88450 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
