Perdana V6 Executive or Mercedes E200 Kompressor

Terengganu dah pakai Mercedes E200 buatan Pekan Pahang.
Pahang masih lagi pakai Perdana V6.
Sepatutnya Pahang lah mula pakai kereta Mercedes tu sebab dibuat di Pekan Pahang. Bila lagi nak promosi buatan tempatan hasil tangan orang Pekan setanding dengan orang German.
Kenapa tak patut pilih Perdana V6?
1. Gearbox banyak masalah. Dalam "D" boleh tiba-tiba tukar "N". Bayangkan kalau sedang memotong kenderaan lain. Tiba-tiba tak ada gear, kereta depan pun sampai...
2. Tiada airbag. Bayangan bawa VIP penting Negeri. Kalau accident parah. Tak kan hendak pilihanraya kecil pulak.
3. Dari pengalaman, Perdana V6 memang seronok dipandu 2 tahun yang pertama. Lepas itu mulalah masalah sana sini. Mula lah gearbox buat hal.
4. Dalam bandar, Perdana V6 memang OK. Tapi kalau jalan luar bandar macam di Pahang, memang masalah. 2 tahun habis semua bergegar.
5. Jangan samakan Perdana V6 yang dipakai di Pahang dengan Melaka atau Perlis. 10 kali pusing Melaka dengan Perlis tak habis separuh Pahang pun.
6. Spare parts Perdana V6 mahal. Tukar gearbox RM25,000 (baru) RM13,000 (recond). Itu belum masuk labour charge dan lain-lain. Jangan kiralah hati sakit tu.
7. Jangka hayat Perdana V6 tinggi2 pun 10 tahun. Lepas 5 tahun pun tak ada siapa nak beli secondhand. Mercedes kalau dijaga baik2, 20 tahun pun masih boleh diguna macam baru.
8. Banyak lagi perbandingan yang tak perlu sebut...
Satu saja pandangan.
Gunalah Mercedes itu TAPI tukar perkeliling yang kata pembelian tiap-tiap 5 tahun (1 penggal) kepada 10 tahun (2 penggal).

  3. Francis,
    Thanks for "Do not agreed" with me. The Star talks about privately owned Perdana. Pls appreciate the different with Govt. owned cars. Govt. owned cars have many drivers & travelled long distance too often & at times non stop. In Pahang, travelling 15,000 km per week is common. Proton can't stand the strain. Compare to Mercedes...no match Francis! The Pahang MB is still using the Mercedes from the time of DS Najib as MB i.e 1982 (26 years). Tell me if the Perdana can be in that good condition after 26 years?

    Letting the time pass me by...
    Bukan masalah Camry ni... Saya kata Mercedes tu pasang di Pekan Pahang. Kalau kerajaan Pahang yg pakai, bolehlah promosi kata hasil tangan pekerja anak Pekan setanding dengan hasil tangan pekerja di Jerman. Dan saya rasa Camry tak setahan Mercedes utk kegunaan lasak.
    Salam.
