Cars are more trouble than they are worth!

Do you agree? Mine keeps breaking and it costs so much money to fix each time. I hate driving as well, I wish I could work from home all the time and not have to have a car at all

I half agree. Cars are a pain to maintain and repair, but they have so many advantages too. I've been lucky to have a company car for a few years, so I just put fuel in and drive it. If anything needs to be fixed I take it to the garage and they fix it for free (free to me anyway!). In a few months I will have to buy my own car and pay for all servicing and maintainence. I'm dreading that, but have a mechanic friend who I will be buying lots of pints! There are too many cars on the roads, so I think anybody who doesn;t need a car should not have one and just hire if they need one occasionally. Those living in inner cities don;t really need them, but I live in the 'burbs so I would have to spend about 3 hours every day using busses just for work. As someone already said, I don't make best use of it as I'm busy these days but it's nice to know that wherever I want to go, it's outside my house waiting.

Cars can be a real headache and expensive to keep up. I am fortunate enough to have a husband that knows how to fix ours when it breaks down. I used to love driving but I leave it mainly to my husband now to drive. I moved to Nicaragua a couple of years back and most people here do not own cars. There are many taxis and buses.
