SHAH ALAM (Jan 18, 2009) : By Maria

Selangor spent RM2,356,123.35 to buy the 15 Toyota Camry 2.4 cars for use by its executive councillors and senior officers, Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said today.

Via a statement which he promised to issue after the state executive council meeting last Wednesday, he said each of the Camry bought at RM157,074.89 after a RM10,000 discount, comes with a three-year warranty.

Reiterating what he had said on Wednesday, Abdul Khalid said: "It costs the state RM694,735.55 to maintain the Proton Perdanas it owned."

There were several instances when the gear boxes of some three-year-old Proton Perdana had to be changed twice in two years, he said.

It is understood that the cost of changing each gear box was more than RM20,000.
