I think owning a car depends on the interest and financial capacity of the person, but abroad like New Zealand, homeowners own cars not for pleasure but for their daily needs. There are no utility vehicles there. I saw buses and trains for those who travel far from home. Even old people there could still drive, but in my country, not all own a car. Also, some cars there in NZ are affordable. My cousins bought two cars at $ 5,000 NZ dollars each in cash . If someone owns a car in my country , it is done through installment. Only those well-off can afford to buy a car in cash. My first car was purchased through installment.mWhat can you add?
