So who’s telling the truth now? Is it Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Nizar or Proton, our national car manufacturer, over the Perdana V6 maintenance cost issue.
Nizar is obstinate to use RM2.7mil taxpayers’ money to buy 16 Toyota Camrys for his exco men citing the high maintenance cost of Perdana V6.
However, Nizar has yet to come out with the breakdown cost of maintenance for each Perdana V6 possessed by the state government to authenticate his claims.
He is just making a sweeping statement to validate the use of the taxpayers’ money.
Proton in a statement rebuffed Nizar’s allegations.
The company said the fee charged is reasonable and depends largely on regular servicing at authorised service centres every three months or every 5,000km or recommended by the manufacturer.
It said the typical mileage for a car under normal usage is between 20,000km and 30,000km per year where average total maintenance cost of a Perdana V6 is about RM2,300.
So, what is Nizar talking about? It is typical of Nizar, a PAS leader, making
rash claims over things that he did not know for sure. Obviously, the statement was made to warrant the purchase of the cars for his exco men.
A piece of advice for the unpatriotic Nizar. The rakyat is not stupid. Don’t fool them all the time.
