As a 60 year old female who currently lives in the snow belt, i bought this as i loved looks (sort of like a small lexus?), love the leather. I just bought this VX Dec 5th and the check engine light came on yesterday? It passed Ohio's e-check two weeks ago.
Also if anyone can tell me what to put it in while backing down an icy hill, my driveway, would appreciate it! Mary alias Trgve ( my husband)

my first VX was bought in HK 1997 with Blue metalic, cause I got to move back to Canada, that why I sold vehicle with no choice. then I bought 2000 grey in Toronto in 2002, but my wife wrecked a year after, currently I am look for the third, anyone can help me to locate a VX with good mileage and good condition, i am planning to buy one and keep it, it does have a lots of centmental value for me. hopefully i could get one soon.

I bought my JDM Astral Silver in April 2012. This car is 15 years old as it is 1997 made. However, I still decided to own because it is my dream car since 15 years ago. Very rare in Malaysia, less than 8 in the country.
Very exciting to know and join this community.
Enjoy!

Hello, I purchased my White 99 Ironman about 2 months ago. I love, love love it. I live in Arizona and would love to find other VXers that live out here. I am keeping my eye open for any great deals on a Yellow Proton. I am so glad I found this site. Hasta Tomas

VX KAT here...up the hill near Prescott like Billy said.

Sounds like a good time to start planning another VX meet :thumbup:
but um.... not until it's cooler.....(only Billy likes it REALLY hot...cuz he's a little crazy!) :laugho:

Billy, have any suggested trails, maybe Crown King or around there?? Don't know if the fire has altered any near there.

Drove home in the new to me 1999 VCross 200 mile first trip. Rode, drove and handled well. All Florida flat lands and turnpike. Set the cruise at 75 and sat back to feel the sensations of a different vehicle. Have a few things that need to be done and will be reading everything available here.

Hey everyone. Finally signed up after lurking for a while. I bought my vehicross a few months ago with 55,000 miles and it now has 64,000. Its a great little unit for Alberta winters. I currently use it to commute to and from school and its taking the miles well. I've got a slow oil consumption issue and will be switching oils here for a while and hopefully that will clear it up. Aside from that its mostly stock, I've removed the radio, and added an aftermarket one where the CD player used to be. Plan is to use the upper space for a couple of gauges. I have focal front component speakers, Polk rears, and Polk 8" sub in the rear being ran by a digital design 5 channel power house. Currently fabbing up my nitrous system, with the intent of running a 100 wet shot on a wot and window switch. Other then that its pretty well stock. My future plan is to line-x the plastic cladding and I've just seen a member who put a rear facing heat extraction hood in and I'd like to copy that. I know everyone likes pictures. Ill try to post some after I'm back from Mexico. Big shout out to the communtiy from a new Alberta VX owner.

Saw one a few years ago and looked it up on the internet. obviously i was unable to buy one as there were none for sale. browsing ebay last Saturday night after a few beers and THERE IT WAS. the very same car. the very next morning it was parked on my drive.
the guy i bought it off had it for his wife and it was not understood exactly what i was. Its currently in the shop as the suspension bangs from the front left but, i did get it for a steal.
its a 1997 JDM silver with the 3.2 and the Recarro cloth interior, but only has 88,000 Km on it and OZ rally wheels with 33" MT Tyres. Also has the JDM satnav, TV, Reverse camera etc. CArbon door cards, original over mats, wind deflectors.

Hello. My name is Larry Barker, and I live in Rockville, Maryland, which is a suburb of Washington, D.C. I have been a used car manager and wholesale division manager, at a local MB, Bentley & RR Dealer for over 20 years. In this position I have purchased 3 VehiCross as trade vehicles, and I presently own a 2000 model which I purchased from a local, one-owner with only 36k miles. I think the VehiCross is one of the most unique vehicles produced, and I have truly enjoyed driving them. This vehicle was ahead of it's time, and I will always remember the first one I saw at the local Ford/Isuzu Dealer. I will be selling the 2000 soon, due to down-sizing, and moving to a location where I will not have adequate parking. I wish I had found this forum sooner, and had access to the information I see available.

I have read a few threads about how to post pics; however, I must be missing something. When I click on "gallery" on the top menu, I don't see "gallery links" on the top menu of that page, or anywhere else for that matter, thus I can't find the "upload photos" drop down either. Thanks for any help.

not sure, but maybe you have to do a certain minimum number of posts before the Gallery feature is available to you? It's that way on other forums I've been on.

Make a list of what parts you need and check ebaymotors everyday. Post the list here and keep an eye on parts for sale. Supplies are a bit rare but with luck and diligence you should be okay.

Well, the search should become your best friend, just look at the top of the homepage, or just start a thread and as you type the title it will suggest other threads that already exist that might answer your question before you post. If all else fails send a PM and ask someone, there are plenty of helpful people around here.

What is it you are looking for help with? What are you looking to do first with your VX?

Hi: My name is Dave and I own a 2001 Proton. It is my everyday driver and I am loving it. If you are shy don't drive one of these(everywhere you go people want to talk with you about the vehicle. I took it to my exhaust guy that has been custom fabbing exhaust for over 25 years(he had never seen one before). I took it to my mechanic to do complete brake job with rotors,calipers,pads and he had never worked on one before. I like it because it fits in my garage with all my Motorcycles and it has a very small turning radius(like my wrangler had). The turbo muffler sounds more like a crotch rocket than a car when I get on her. I really want to find a person that knows what make and model I could possibly use to put a nice beefy bull bar on her. i would put some pics on here but not very comp savy and don't know how.

VX KAT
12/03/2017, 10:46 AM
It's a Westin bar, can't recall model number right now, but then you have to have custom mounting brackets made. There's a few threads here and on the FB VX page where I've listed the info and included detailed pics of the mounting brackets. Search "Westin bull bar" should find it.

My name is Ysaac & I purchased a 2001 kaiser obsession with a dead engine and tranny. Since I was young I have always liked the style and stance of the VX to show my commitment to the brand I am bringing one back from the dead.

It was debadged except for the grill emblem and wheel center caps. I changed the grill badge to a vx thanks to the 3d file online. Center caps wil be relabled vx if I find a solution to the alternator problem.
