Car problems

Our
car its becoming an expensive hobby, it was a huge novelty having one a few
years back, prior to that we walked everywhere regardless of the weather
conditions – we simply had no choice.

Life
suddenly seemed much more comfortable, a chance to sit down and enjoy a journey
protected from the elements! Until of
course the inevitable happened the car started having problems… then I had to
consider who can fix my car? and panic
about the cost implications!!!

Now
car ownership does not seem such an exciting proposition. Once little red started heading to the
garage to be fixed, she must have decided she liked it there as she insists on
going regularly! Hubbie has no clue
when it comes to fixing cars so we are forced to rely on the knowledge of
mechanics, which is all well and good but that comes at a price! I guess I should not grumble too much hubbie
does have other skills, but I just wish fixing cars could have come as a
welcome extra! Maybe I should go back
to studying and learn something to help the family and keep costs down. Although I am not sure I fancy getting
covered in oil…

Our
car is making some strange noises again, so it will be another trip to the
garage soon. We have spent hundreds of
pounds on little red lately; it can be stressful finding a garage your happy
with and its nice to have the luxury of choice. Luckily the search is made easier if you head online car mechanics can be found with
relative ease and that way you can shop around and hopefully get a bit of a
discount off the work. Otherwise it
will be back to beans on toast for us here until the work is paid for!

I think we should have kept walking and stuck to a remote control car and saved HEAPS of money for more cake and wine!

One thought on “Car problems

  1. My car broke down 2 weeks ago and it was going to cost more than it was worth to fix it. So I scrapped it and now I'm back on public transport for work and walking. I'm taking a while getting used to it would prefer my car but im glad not to have to worry about repairs and insurance etc for now my car tax was conveniently due for tax at the end of this month!
