I have been thinking about buying a car for a while now, but haven’t been able to come to a decision. The car would be for a few pracitical reasons (getting groceries, going to my parents etc.), a few good reasons (being able to go horse riding etc.) and probably another lazy reasons (go to work in half the time). On the other hand there is the huge cost involved even if I leave out the cost of buying (which I don’t mind as much) and the environmental cost. I am not much of an environmentalist, but I do feel bad sitting in a car all by myself, while there is a good public transport system available.
The next slight challenge is actually buying a car given my lack of expertise or interest in cars. Luckily I have brothers and friends willing to help, but in the end I guess I need to make a decision and I don’t even know where to start.
Anyway, I don’t want to leave this hanging forever. Either I buy a car or I leave it for another year and take a decision then. 3 years ago
