dotenvironment892256di have not even started about the problems with people.
1. used car dealers are untrustworthy from what i heard. one should get a car tested by mechanic .
2. mechanics are assholes who wanna make car buyers their permanent customers, as per my family. they know multiple mechanics and trust no one to give a sound advice
3. having sour relations with neighbours and relatives bites in the ass when you want to buy such an expensive item and have no one to guide/help. thank you mom nd dad :/
4. "every neighbour is selfish and wanna exploit our simplicity, let's keep our shields up, do loud fights with everyone, have no friends, and do not contribute to society stuff" ~ yeah , that's the strategy you should be keeping if you live on the top floor of a block with 4 adjacent buildings and 15 similar homes and expect to get a car parking under your home /s .
people WILL take revenge. your tyres will be punctured and ink stains on your car. you pay the price for not being political :/
WildOrangutan2673256dI'd say you're overthinking... everything.
Just get a drivers licence and learn the rules first.
Even if they teach you nothing practical, you will at least know the rules. And even good teacher can't teach you everything.
After that, just buy some cheap car, that you can learn to drive with, and scratch it all over the place.
Demolishun27781256dIf I lived in a place where I could get to work without a car I would never drive to work. The maintenance sucks, the gas sucks, and driving with assholes sucks. When I lived in a bigger town the bus was a God send. I could sleep to and from work. If I needed to drive for some reason I would keep a car just for that. Lower wear and tear.
retoor6332256d@WildOrangutan totally agree . I would only check what gas is cheaper for my usage. Check if tires are OK.. Check if timing belt has to be replaced if it has one. My country requires "apk" which means proof that your car is safe. This is renewed every year... But you want to have this recently renewed by purchase. Many cars 2000,- and up match this criteria.
Me and my family purchased three times second handed fiat Punto with no regrets. Cheap to fix also.
b2plane5130255dI bought my fiat punto for 3k euros used one 2011 year. Such cars have often mechanical failures and u spend additional money on that shit. But at least it drives
electrode453255dHehe, I was once in your shoes; I was 24 as well; after hours and hours on youtube, Reddit, and old car forums, I decided to get a Mercedes Benz GLK350 2015 model in Nigeria. It was an excellent option for our roads here, $10k two years ago (2020), and apart from the $100-200 for three-six months of servicing/checkup and a one-time I had to replace the AC compressor.
I've had no issues with it so far.
Demolishun27781255dAlso, cars will make you fatter. I used to rollerblade to the bus stop to supplement. I was a lot fitter then.
