How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Car warranty and the required mileage or 3-month service, whichever is earlier

One of the things most car owners dislike is the requirement to have the required service done according to manufacturers' condition: eg. every 5,000 km or 3 months, whichever is earlier. This is especially ridiculous if a car owner seldom uses his car. The disparity between mileage based on actual usage and the deemed mileage based on 3-monthly intervals can be ludicrous even after one year.

Even a fairly used Honda Jazz is already faced with this:

Actual mileage: 11,500 km
Deemed mileage after 1 year, based on 3-monthly intervals: 20,000 km

A retired owner having an older second car might have a situation of say, 2,000 km on the odometer of his new car but had to have the 20,000 km service done!

We are told motor oil deteriorates over time, but what about other parts which can only deteriorate with actual usage? Seems a waste having to change certain parts based on period of use rather than actual.

But of course, we are stuck with it simply because manufacturers have the right to void the warranty if not according to their schedule.
