Your own personal vehicle is a WANT, not a need!

Yes, I own my vehicle bc I satisfied my "want". What do you all think?

    Nope. It's a need here. I'm in LA, CA. My DH works over an hour away. Grocery stores, schools, whatever are not right around the corner. I need my car to be able to do all that I have to do.

    I agree.  A vehicle always makes life easier but you dont need it.  We used to live 7 miles out of town, my husband had to walk in every day to go to work and walk back before we had a vehicle.

    Well, my husband's job is 15+ miles away from our house, and there is no direct bus route.  So, yeah, a personal vehicle kind of IS a need for us.  We don't NEED two (though it makes life about 1000x easier), and we don't NEED new cars (we only ever buy used.)  But no car at all?  Not gonna fly.

    my car broke a week after I paid it off, needs a full new engine. I've been carless since December. Sure I want my own personal vehicle and sure I need to go places sometimes but we have another working vehicle so its not entirely necessary for me to have my own.

    My husband however does need a car he works all over the state and his company no longer offers a company vehicle so he has no choice but to drive.

    Lol we live out in the woods in NH. Its a need- especially in the winter. A good vehicle for the snow is a *want* and we have them :) subaru all the way

    Haha a need. I live 20 minutes from Walmart with no buses. Suburbs you know. My dh works away often. What would I do? Walk 30 miles with three kids. I doubt it. Then the hospital and doctors offices are further. I'm not talking country roads either. I'm talking south Louisiana elevated interstates over the swamp.

    I would normally agree but I have talked to a few women where a stable way of life would honestly not be possible without a vehicle.

    Now if you said a brand new vehicle, ya know, fresh off the lot with a $300+ payment attached, that is definatly not a necessity. Just because you need a vehicle doesn't mean you can justify a new Cadillac.
