I live 30 minutes drive from the nearest town. If my child gets sick or injured at school, do you suggest I just let them there? No thanks, I'll drive.

No it is a need. I need to be able to take my kids to Dr appointments, IEP meetings at the school. Hubby needs to go to work to. I am currently borrowing a vehicle. And it sucks. The person has to have it through the week and they also work weekends. So i have to wait to shop for groceries etc. Plus where i live there is no store within walking distance. Everything you have to go into town. There are no buses , cabs here. And the 1 company that does exist for public transportation will not come out here at all. With 3 kids if a emergency comes up , i am susposed to always call a ambulance or walk to the hospital. I do not think so. Plus my husband work more then 15 miles from home.

Yeah, I'm not walking for an hour and a half on the highway to make it to the nearest bus stop with two kids. Not happening.

My 2007 subaru impreza is only $239/mo. Tell him to trade it for something cheaper that's still nice.

If he's an engine/ speed guy: my impreza has a 2.5l engine- blows the focus away haha

We have no public transportation here. It's a need. If we had buses and trains it'd be a lot different. I never had or needed a car in germany.
