I’ve been thinking about this for a few months now. I really need to get a car of my own. After driving for 6 years, not having round the clock access to a car makes me feel handicapped. I feel as though my mobility is impaired and it’s a terrible feeling!
I initially thought that using taxis to regain my mobility might be cheaper than buying another car. Based on my rough estimation, however, if I wanted to take taxi to and from work daily, and when I go out on weekends, this may come up to $1.5k per month because of all the peak hour surcharge and additional fees to book a taxi (bearing in mind that queuing for a taxi is contrary to regaining mobility).
If I buy a car whose monthly instalment is abt $500 + insurance + road tax + petrol and parking of $400, it would come up to about $1.2k – still cheaper!
So I’ve decided. My priority for this year is to get a car. I shall start looking in this Sat’s papers!
