    Thanks. Have checked that. Most of them are dealers. Hoping to get from an owner.

    Spare part is very expensive, and fuel consumption is about RM0.24 per km.

    Parts are easy to get and they are not as expensive. My old 2001 Kembara is consuming only RM0.14 per km

    In times like these, the best car to get is a fully paid up car.

    My suggestion, if you really need a Kembara, get one whereby you can pay it in full (cash). A year 2000 is going in the region of RM 14-15k (really depends on the condition) and a 2004 dvvt is going for about RM 28k (if i am not wrong).

    Thus, a 2004 costs DOUBLE that of a 2000 car. I agree that the DVVT saves some fuel (maybe about 10% more than a normal Kembara) but is this 10% payable back in the very short term (perhaps 12 months or less)?

    And to address anyone who is not using a Kembara about its maintenance issues...I have had my Kembara (it is now my wife's) for close to 9 years. It does not cost an arm and a leg to maintain. The key is to service it regularly which is every 6 months or 10,000km. If you adhere to this advice, it will bring many years of reliable service.

    The only major components that I have had to replace include timing belt (every 70,000 km), front and rear absorbers (last time it was RM 150 per pair) and that is it!

    It is my favorite car for...Parking!

    I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone and in these times of economic uncertainty, a fully paid for car is the best car to drive (regardless of the make).

    Thank you all for the replies and sound advice. Tupai, may we view the car, please. Perhaps you can sms me the owners contact no or alternatively, please contact my dad to make arrangements to view the car. Thanks for the offer.

    My Kembara is 6 years old. Never had any major breakdown most major would be car cannot start (battery weak). Love my Kembara to bits and true that parking is so easy. Always send it for regular maintenance and you'll go far. It is so convenient esp during those days that I have to move around. Even carry a two door fridge in it .
