Dealers Celebrate Wira Customer Satisfaction Success

Proton Wira Quicksilver

Proton dealers are celebrating their success in securing the Wira model range’s second place ranking in the small car category of the 2002 J.D.Power survey by offering a Limited Edition of this popular family car packed with added value.

Called the Quicksilver, this Limited Edition model is based on the Wira 1.3 Li five door. It features special wheel trims, front and rear bumper mouldings, special side body mouldings, chrome exhaust trim and rear number plate surround, electric tilt/slide sunroof with sunblind plus carpet mat set, and is finished in mercury silver.

The Quicksilver LE also comes with three years / 27,000 miles free servicing, subject to compliance with the warranty schedule. And to make it as easy as possible to buy, a 0 per cent finance scheme over two years with a 50 per cent minimum deposit is available.

Priced at £7,999 OTR, the Quicksilver represents true value for money with this outstanding additional package of consumer benefits. This Limited Edition offer runs until 31st July 2002.

The standard Wira 1.3 Li five door model is also available with three years / 27,000 miles free servicing and 0 per cent finance until 31st July 2002.

According to J.D.Power, dealer service was the key to the Wira’s success in this year’s UK Car Customer Satisfaction Study, doing better than even the first placed Toyota Corolla in some respects.

It also outscored the Toyota in terms of its appeal, especially its seats, comfort and convenience, and proved robust mechanically. The results are based on the experiences of V and W registered car drivers during the first two years of ownership. A total of 29 different models were ranked in the small car category.

Special finance packages are also being offered by Proton dealers throughout the UK on the four door Impian Limited Edition range, which runs until 30th June 2002. Impian LE customers can take advantage of 0 per cent finance over three years with no deposit or 0 per cent over two years with a minimum 50 per cent deposit, with the balance paid on the second anniversary of purchase.

Buyers are also eligible for either a £750 cashback or £1,000 worth of free extras. With the Impian1.6 LE, these extras comprise five year extended warranty, one year/9,000 mile free servicing, metallic paint and six disc CD autochanger, while the 1.6 X LE gets three years / 27,000 miles free servicing, five year extended warranty and free metallic paint.
