… what about Proton Personas? They seem quite popular.
Or if you don’t want Protons, how about Myvis? I hear they are quite reliable and low maintenance.
While most of the country is bracing for an economic downturn, exco members in several states have turned their attention to procuring fleets of new cars.
Maybe it’s beneath the “dignity” of the Pakatan folks – they are supposed to be different from the BN folks, who are accustomed to big flashy Mercs and BMWs – to use the ordinary cars that many of the rakyat use. Don’t forget many of the rakyat don’t even have cars.
I guess they must have their “foreign” 2.4-litre Camrys or what-have-you … In Selangor’s case, they are even thinking of 4WDs so the state exco members can travel to rural areas. Last I heard, such vehicless are fuel guzzlers. It’s not as if the only thing stopping them from visiting rural areas is the lack of a good 4WD!
If not local or more fuel-efficient cars, how about public transport?
While most people are tightening their belts during these difficult times, with overtime slashed and bonuses trimmed or non-existent, they want to spend public money on new fleets of flashy cars.
