Proton Savvy recall break record

No, it's not an April Fool joke. Proton now has break the Malaysian record for being the first local manufacturer to recall it's car.

Proton must be desperate to break the market monopoly for the sales of locally made car currently held by Perodua that they asked for the recall. For safety purpose, it's a must. But on the bright side, Proton basically earn free publicity and soon they probably start to lelong their unsold old Proton Saga hatchback. The old Proton Saga hatchback numbered in thousands have littered the nation car yard because it cannot sell.

So the problem with Savvy would allow them to do stock clearance on their old Saga hatchback stock.
