The Proton Jumbuck is not as bad as we initially thought.

Build Quality

Overall the Jumbuck's build quality is not that bad!

During our week with it the door open warning light kept coming on even though the doors were shut, the sill kick plate came off and there were a few rough edges here and there but bearing in mind the price £6895 + VAT there was nothing that couldn't be rectified under the 3-year/60,000 mile vehicle warranty.

Value For Money

The Proton Jumbuck is not as bad as we initially thought. It drives very well although it is a little underpowered. Don't be put off by minor build quality issues as we've seen them on more expensive vehicles. The Jumbuck is a good workhorse for little money especially if you can claim the VAT back and definitely worth a test drive if you are on a budget or just like a bargain.
