Proton Preve Executive – Service 20000 Km

This post is about the 20000 Km Scheduled Maintenance for my Proton Preve.

For a start, Here’s the exact specification of my car:

Manufacturing Date: 2016
Purchased Date: December 2016
Model: Proton Preve 1.6 Executive Manual

Firstly, let’s check the price quoted at the Proton Official Website for my car.
You can view the file here.

It is stated that for the Proton Preve Executive MT 20k Km service will cost RM184.45. The work that will be done during this service as per the Website are as follows:

1. Engine Oil (Syntium 800 SE 10W/30 SN) 4L
2. Engine Oil Filter
3. Drain Plug Gasket
4. Spark Plugs
5. Air Filter
Free Labour Charges

However, the Service Advisor quoted me the following work:

1. Engine Oil (Syntium 3000 SE 5W/30 SN) 4L
2. Engine Oil Filter
3. Air Filter
4. Drain Plug Gasket
5. Spark Plugs
6. Labour Charges

Cost for all of these ? RM269.26
However, my car is still entitled to a 20k Km service voucher which was valued at RM197.73. In the end, I only paid a total of RM71.50

Why the differences are huge between the Proton Service Menu on the website and the ones quoted at me ? Well, the Proton Service Menu uses Petronas Syntium 800 SE 10W/30 SN which as per Lazada website it costs RM90 while the one quoted to me uses Syntium 3000 SE 5W/30 SN which costs RM190.80.

Is it worth it to pay that price for a better Engine Oil ? Well, if you accelerate up to 6500RPM before changing gears all the time, I say it is worth it. 🙂

Where did I send my car to ?
