A rakyat’s feeling about Terengganu Barisan Nasional government’s purchase of Mercedes

A complete waste of funds!

A STATE government has changed its fleet of so-called “ageing” Perdana V6 for a new fleet of Benz E200k at RM3.43mil.

Replacing four-year-old cars does not seem to make sense these days. Cars of company executives and directors are usually replaced only after five years (if the company is making money).

Since the Government is using public funds, they should use it wisely. The oil price has increased, but it does not mean that they should replace the Perdanas with E-class Benzs for low-cost maintenance and safety.

A Benz is not cheap to maintain. It is not even in the top 10 list of least problematic cars. Topping the list are three Japanese cars.

Buying Japanese would save RM1.3mil. Maintenance cost would likely be 30% to 50% less than what the Benzs will incur. The millions saved could be used to build schools, roads and provide help to the hard-core poor.

Our Prime Minister has just told us to be moderate on luxury, change our lifestyle and set a good example for the people, but this is the news we get from a “rich state”.
