So, you have a car…it’s not great, but you can’t really afford anything else and you only really use it to potter around town in. Every now and then, you look to see what else is out there…even though you can’t justify the outlay, not even for a cheap one.
You see hundreds of the damn things, within your theoretical price range. All of them, arguably, better than what you have. You consider it briefly, and then realise that it’s stupid as you already have a perfectly serviceable car.
Fast forward to getting a job that you won’t be able to get to without a car and, you can probably already guess, your perfectly serviceable car becomes less than perfect and most definitely un-serviceable and you find yourself looking for any one of these hundreds of cars.
In the last week, I have seen around 4 or 5 cars that fit my needs and they are all adverts that have been online for more than a month..yup, already sold.
