Hello friends, I found that Proton X50 is going to launch in Malaysia, so I want to introduce my SUV Coolray (PH) to you all. I bought the car for the purpose of working and it has brought me a satisfactory experience since I started to drive it.
1) Remote control
I am a forgetful person and always keep losing my stuff. Coolray has the keyless entry so it is convenient for me to unlock the door without the key. Besides that, the remote start of Coolray helps me to locate my car, I'm no longer seeking my car in the crowded lot.
It has brake auto-hold and I just need to move the shifter to Neutral, even don't have to pull up the handbrake. When the traffic light signal turns green, I can drive directly and don't have to disengage the handbrake.
3) Fuel efficient
Coolray uses the 3 cylinders with Dual Clutch transmission and it's much more fuel-efficient compared with my old car. It’s also quite smooth and also not a lot of vibration...
4) Driving experience
The staff of the car workshop helped me connect my phone with the car system so that I can use the car steering wheel hand-free control. So far I rarely miss the incoming call while I'm driving the car.
I always appreciate the good job Geely did on the car radio. Due to the great sound insulation, I am able to enjoy the music and don't need to turn up the media volume very high.
It seems that Geely is confident about their products, they give a 5 years warranty for every Coolray. This makes me feel secure on my daily drives.
By the way, the maintenance service interval for Coolray has been set at every 7,500 km or 6 months.
That's a shortcoming of the car for my family members who are a bit short, they feel uncomfortable with not being able to see the road ahead when they are sitting on the second row which is a bit too low.
I hate to admit it but the exterior of Coolray is not so attractive for me. It looks as normal as I expected and really didn't entice me. It just looks normal and just a good value car for me.
It has been nearly one year since I bought my Coolray. It accompanies me through my daily commute and maintains good performance. I believe that Malaysian friends will like the car and hope to see it on the roads soon!
