It's not uncommon to see old cars being driven around
in Malaysia. Some are better kept than others but what cars are on our
streets because they are truly reliable and which ones are only still
around because their owners would have to pay someone to take them? Here
we look at the five most reliable cars in Malaysia in no particular
The first generation Honda Accord from 1976 was popular because it
offered great fuel economy and features like cloth seats, a tachometer,
intermittent wipers, and an AM/FM radio as standard equipment. In 1978
an LX version of the hatchback was added which came with air
conditioning, a digital clock, and power steering. Until the Accord,
sub-2.0L cars didn't come with power steering.
The E30 BMW 3 Series is one of BMW's most successful models ever
produced with a huge array of engines and body styles - saloon, coupé,
touring and convertible - as well as an all-wheel drive variant. Such is
its popularity that spare parts are not difficult to come by, further
adding to its popularity.
Another oldie but toughie, the Datsun/Nissan Sunny 130Y. This is the
version from the Nissan website but the Malaysian one had door-mounted
wing mirrors and different rear lights. Even after the B12 Nissan Sunny
had already been launched in the mid-80s, the B11 continued to be sold
in Malaysia as a low-cost alternative. The B11 continued to be produced
until the mid-90s.
In its time, the Mercedes-Benz W123 was Mercedes-Benz's most
successful model selling over 2.7 million cars worldwide before it was
superseded by the W124 model. Many fine examples in good condition are
still running around. Most plentiful are the saloon models though there
are a few stationwagons and coupés around. The car was so popular when
it was launched that in Germany, there was even a black market, with a
hefty premium on top of the original selling price, for Mercedes-Benz
W123s. This was because there was a 12 month delivery time for the car
from authorised dealers. The car came with a slew of the latest
technology in its day including power assisted disc brakes (as
standard); ABS on models after August 1980.
Toyota's best selling car worldwide by 1974, eight years after the
model was introduced, the Corolla continues to be one of Toyota's most
popular cars. Models from the 1980s, the fifth generation, were tough
and resilient. After several 100,000s of miles, many are still going
strong, a testament to the reliability that Toyota is famed for.
