You know my husband was looking for a car for me and his boss had a nice one that was automatic but it was smoking everywhere and he wanted me to drive it home but I told him no and he kind of got mad he said if I were to get a ticket he would pay for it but I don;t want a ticket of any kind! So the time passed and he came home with another car which is a standard which I do not know how to drive at all! I did when I was younger but not now so anyway he asked me how long would it take me to learn I said maybe 2 weeks or longer? I am not sure but I really like the car but I prefer an an automatic!!! I have a bad knee to so maybe he will change his mind? I hope! This morning he said can you take me to work because there is no gas in the car he brought home he he and I the other car did not pass the inspection I have to get 2 new tires which I had the money Saturday to do it and he told me to wait! Now the money is gone! Urrg!!! I should have just got it over with!!! What would you do? I really don't want that car he said I didn't bring it for me I got it for us but I can't drive it! And I am a little scared that I will not be able to learn?

That's too bad. You should talk to him about it and if you think you really can't drive it or learn to drive it anymore, then tell him so. Don't let small things be reasons for conflicts especially if they can be fixed. Next time you get a car, or a hand me down car, make sure that you got something that's worth your money. If you're not good with cars just like me, then ask an expert opinion from a friend or from someone who knows cars a lot better. Things like this can easily be remedied as long as you know what you want and you let the other person know about it. Good luck!

I would want a car I would be sure of being able to drive. I would also want a car I felt confidant about both in my ability to drive and my ability to keep it running. I would tell your husband this. You could sell the car that is a standard and then use that money to buy an automatic.

That was a real waste of money, sadly it costs a lot if you dont know someone in the business. I know my entire family in that business, and even then its hard to get a *good* pass on a car. I would go look at cars myself, and say I really like such and such. When I was looking for my car I wrote down what I anted i.e. automatic, 4 door, etc.

Well, despite the automatic transmission in Italy, is not very popular, I seem to have realized that this drive system, go a lot from you in the USA. Now you told me about that, unfortunately, you have a knee "that's not good." The automatic transmission frees you from the clutch pedal, then driving on that car for you, you will definitely comfortable. The fact to consider when buying a used car (at least, from what you've written it does not seem new) need to see the condition of the engine, how many miles has come and tires. everything is then proportional to the selling price. Now evaluate the condition of the vehicle, it provides the price and make an estimate if it's worth it. This is my personal advice.

I just do not want the car sure it is pretty and all but just another bill that I see that we can not afford at the moment but men will be men is all I can say and I am bit mad at him for this becasse this morning we went to get full coverage on it and it took all of our money knowing other bills were late already as I have told him a week ago!
