Proton Recalls Savvy To Address Possible Wheel Bearing Problem
KUALA LUMPUR, March 31 (Bernama) — Proton is recalling its Savvy cars to address the possibility of water entry into the rear wheel bearing which could lead to a malfunction of the affected components.
“The safety and satisfaction of our customers is a primary concern. As a precautionary measure, we are recalling all Savvy’s for inspection and repair.
We do apologise to all Savvy owners for any inconvenience,” managing director Datuk Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir said in a statement here Monday.
The recall will affect 34,000 Savvy cars and Proton will conduct the necessary checks and replacements at no cost to the customer.
Proton said all Savvy owners are advised to take their cars to the nearest Proton Edar or EON service branches for an inspection.
“This recall is purely a precautionary measure as the convenience and safety of customers is Proton’s highest priority,” Proton said.
Customers are encouraged to immediately contact the nearest service branches for an appointment to have their cars inspected. As an alternative, they can call Proton i-Care at 1-300-880-888.
Hmmmm…well well well, finally Proton has admitted that there is something really wrong with the Savvy’s problematic rear bearing after all. It took them long enough to admitted. I for one am glad that current CEO of Proton, Datuk Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed, has the guts to apologize to all Savvy owners for this boo-boo unlike the previous CEO before him.
As for me, I am going to send my Savvy to EON Service Centre near my house for the precautionary checks.
