Fond memories of your car: This is when a continental vehicle shows her true quality. SAFETY!!! Worth every penny, TRUST ME. I was on my way from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur driving at a speed of 160-170 km/h and the road was wet after a downpour. All of a sudden, the car right in front of me just stopped and I was a few meters away from a collision! I went for the emergency brake at the same time mentally prepared to crash but the braking system didn’t fail me!!! My car stopped just a few inches away from the car in front.
