Defer new Hire Purchase Act, Proton dealers urge Govt

 

KUALA LUMPUR: The Proton Edar Dealers Association Malaysia has asked the government to defer the implementation of amendments to the Hire Purchase Act 1967.

Its president, Armin Baniaz Datuk Pahamin, said the postponement was to facilitate a review of the new law which, he said, had been gazetted without prior consultation with the industry.

In a statement, he said the amendments which took effect yesterday were considered not pragmatic and could potentially stall the growth of automotive industry.

He said vehicle dealers would be facing serious cash flow problems if they had to hand over booking fees and deposits to the bank first.

Besides, the price of used cars would also be affected when costs also increased with more stringent sale and purchase requirements, he said.

“About 70 per cent of new vehicle sales depend on trade in. With this, the market for new cars is also expected to be affected,” he said.

Pay Puspakom RM90 to sell used cars

 

PUTRAJAYA: Used vehicle sellers will have to pay a RM90 inspection fee to Puspakom before the sale can be made, in line with the implementation of Hire Purchase Act (Amendment 2010) on June 15. Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said used motorcycles were exempted from inspection due to the small number and amount involved. He said the compulsory inspection was to protect buyers of used vehicles and not meant to incovenience sellers or buyers of used vehicles. Previously, Puspakom inspection was needed for transfer of ownership to ensure that the vehicles were not stolen. “If previously, checks were on four items, we have added another 14 items to ensure safety. Puspakom will issue a certificate that can be used for ownership transfer and hire purchase agreement with banks.” He said the issue of car dealers returning 90% of booking fees should deals fall through did not arise as it was not stated in the law. However, sellers may request a 10% deposit from buyers as required under the Hire Purchase Act. The Government has also set new conditions for vehicle repossessors to protect the interest of consumers. Only those registered and given permits by the ministry will be appointed vehicle repossessors. Ismail said permit applicants will have to undergo screening to check for criminal record. “They also must adhere to procedures whereby repossession can only be done from 9am to 9pm daily. No force must be used in the process. “If the vehicle is in the garage, they can’t enter the house compound except with a court order and can be reported to police for flouting it,” He said this was in line with Hire Purchase Act 1967 (Amended 2010) and Hire Purchase Rules (Permit Acquisition and Repossession Procedures) 2011. Some 451 repossession permits had been issued in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor while 1,053 people had applied nationwide. -Bernama

IRC Yalta Rally Ukraine: Two Protons in top 10 after Leg 1

The Proton Motorsports team is now in Ukraine for the Prime Yalta Rally, which is the fourth round of this season’s Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC). Their last IRC event was Round 2 (Rally Islas Canarias) in Spain, where the team collected its first points of the season. The yellow Neos then skipped Round 3 (Tour de Corse) to focus on the APRC’s Queensland Rally in Australia.

The three-day event sees Proton fielding its strongest line-up to date in the IRC. Against the backdrop of the Crimea region’s Ai-Petri Mountains on the north coast of the Black Sea, Yalta consists of 14 special stages run entirely on asphalt over a combined distance of 721.61 km.

Things are off to a good start. Two of three Proton Satria Neo Super 2000 cars finished in the top 10 after Leg 1. Italian Giandomenico Basso, who scored in Spain for Proton, is the highest placed in eighth position after the opening day’s two SS and just 5.6 seconds adrift of current leader Thierry Neuville (Peugeot 207 S2000). Teammate P-G Andersson is a further three seconds behind to round up the top 10 dominated by Peugeot and Skoda.

Proton’s third entry, piloted by Ukrainian rally star and former USSR rally champ Oleksandr Saliuk Sr is 18th overall from a total of 42 registered competitors, 26.7 seconds down the order. Saliuk Sr’s son Alexander had earlier been scheduled to drive the third Neo S2000 but suffered a broken arm, so in came dad.

Special stage 1 began in the outskirts of Yalta over a short 2.12 km sprint before moving on to Livadija for the second special stage, which was run over a distance of 5.49 km. Leg 2 will consist of six special stages to be run today while the third and final leg on Saturday will also be run over another six special stages.

New to the IRC calendar, the Prime Yalta Rally has levelled the playing field somewhat, with teams not having the benefit of previous technical data to rely on. The changing weather conditions has also made it even more challenging with the varying levels of grip, according to Proton team members in Ukraine. Good luck guys!

Proton introduces ’60 Minutes Express Service’ at 21 outlets – if they exceed the time, you don’t have to pay!

To enhance customer service and satisfaction, Proton has introduced the 60 Minutes Express Service programme, initially available at 21 service centres nationwide from today. Under this initiative, Proton promises regular maintenance service in 60 minutes, including a free 18-point quality and safety check. Should they exceed the promised one-hour, you won’t have to pay a cent.

“A frequent complaint we receive from customers is that it takes too long to service their Proton. More often this is attributed to the number of vehicles that are being attended to at the service centre at any one particular time. In order to address this, we now have dedicated service advisors to attend customers, dedicated technician to work on the vehicles, and dedicated service bays to get the job done,” said Proton Edar CEO Mohamad Shukor Ibrahim.

“It’s much more than just changing the lubricants, oil and air filters but a detailed service check-up. As we continue to improve our services across all areas, we will be working aggressively to reduce the servicing time even further. And while customers wait for their car to be serviced, they can also enjoy our warm hospitality and take advantage of our WiFi facility,” he added.

The 60 Minutes Express Service programme is only available via appointment from Mondays to Fridays from 8.00am to 5.15pm, and is only applicable for basic maintenance service which includes lubricant change. Look out for a 60 Minutes Express Service logo or call Proton i.care at 1800-88-0888 to find out which centres are included. The programme will soon be extended to cover all Proton Edar service centres.
