I know in every country, the path to car ownership is very different. In fact, in many countries, it is easier to get a car as compared to some others. Where I leave, in order to own a car, you have to first purchase a Certificate of Entitlement. But this certificate only give your car a life span of 10 years. Given the above scenario, what kinda car would you buy?

If I can own my car for 10 years, I will not consider to buy an expensive car because it is not worthy. I love China

I am not familiar with cars. My husband is learning to drive and will get the driving license several months later. After that, probably we will consider to buy a car. I think the less expensive car which costing lower oil is our choice.

I have recently bought a Hyundai Elantra and I intend on having it a long time. 10 years is actually a long time to alot of people where a car is concerned...depending on how much you drive it of course. The last car I had was a Saturn and I drove that thing for 8 years..lol...now..I give it to my daughter and she is driving it. Here..you can have a car for as long as it runs..lol.

Ohh... the Elantra. The latest model with the really fluid lines? The latest release of the Elantra is really beautiful. So far, my experience with Hyundai cars are pretty good.

In my country, you can buy a car and then are able to keep it for a long or as short a time as you would like to. However, if I had to keep the same car for ten years, I guess I would get the best car that I possibly could. It would have to be brand new as I don't really like owning cars which are older than 6-7 years, and I would try to make it as economical as possible as well, because the prices of petrol are rising rapidly and I wouldn't want to be stuck with a car that I couldn't afford simply because of the rising fuel costs.

If I could own a car for 10 years, I would choose to buy "Monterro Sport". I like big cars although Monterro Sport would look very big for a girl like me. Hehehehe.. I like its make. It's spacious. :) I think, it could carry a small family. :) I just hope.. Hehehe

It has been my lifelong dream to have a car. I know i can release my own car by the age of 26, which is 10 years later. I want my car to be Land Cruiser, the latest model. I also want a jaguar car, which has GPS in it, very nice. I also want to have my own ferrari and porsche. I know i can have the money via network marketing and buy those cars. Good Day!
