continental car in future but would be a first time for me to drive a
I had in mind:
i) Volvo 240GLE Fuel-Injection
ii) Citroen ZX Auto 1.9 or 2.0, not sure which model would the gurus here
iii) Peugeot 405 SRI Auto
What do I want in a car:
i) Realiable, easy to find spare parts
ii) Good fuel consumption, might consider diesel units if repair is not

Pros: Spacious, solid and large.
Cons: Drinker and maybe modest performer? I heard that it does RM
0.15/KM to RM 0.20KM. No offense
Peugeot 405 SRI Auto
Pros: It`s a french, and it`s cheap for a used unit. Comfortable (as
Cons: Is it more "unrealiable" than Citroen? I`ve search through Peugeot

good fuel consumption.

If you insist on a conti car..get the solid Mercedes W123. Can be had for
like Rm10k only nowadays. Spare parts way lower cost than any of the
other 3 cars...and far more reliable.
