    I have a DD compact car with over 160K mileage. I also have a used and well worn GMC Sonoma for dump/HD runs. My wife has a 14 year old Honda for going to school in the city. All cars are paid for.

    I think it is necessary. There are a lot of times you need versatility, then on the other hand you need economy.
    quality creates its own demand

    A real necessity, at my house. My wife drives 45 miles westof where we live, and I drive 15 miles east of where we live. My '64 has come in handy when one of our other cars is sent to the shop.

    Re: Having More Than One Car - A Luxury Or Necessity?

    I see a second car as a necessity. If one of the cars has broken down you can save yourself the cost and hastle of renting a car. Not to mention the fact that the insurance and registration is probably cheaper than a two day car rental. Plus the second car can also be a test bed for new Meg's products. In my eyes it is a win win situation

    Re: Having More Than One Car - A Luxury Or Necessity?

    i think its a necessity depending on the two vehicles you drive. i personally have a two door coupe and a truck. the car gets decent gas mileage and the truck is useful when i need to haul stuff or go out to the lake, desert, or mountains when a car isnt practical.

    for folks that drive two cars, or two trucks i would see it as a luxury so it all depends on what you're driving...

    I had to put necessity. I have REALLY BAD MOOD SWINGS and the only way to resolve them is by driving a different vehicle.

    Sometimes I'm in the mood to drive the truck, other times I'm in the mood for the Camaro. On real nice days, I'm usually in the mood to ride the motorcycle. :-)

    Re: Having More Than One Car - A Luxury Or Necessity?

    Depending on how many drivers you have in the family it could be a necessity...

    We have 3 daily drivers for me an my kids who are in High School and College.

    Now we do have 3 cars that are toys. One, a 2010 SS Camaro is my wife's driver but she works from home...

    So for us I would say its a luxury.

    Re: Having More Than One Car - A Luxury Or Necessity?

    I used to think 2 vehicles were a luxury but am now convinced I'm going to need a 2nd vehicle out of necessity. I drive a 7 yr old 4x4 year round and spend most of the summer on the bikes. I like the truck well enough that I'd like to keep it another 7 years. Which means cutting back on the miles and reserving it for winter use. There's times when a bike isn't practical so I'm shopping for that elusive low-mileage creampuff with some charactor at the right price. Figure with some patience I ought to be able to find something interesting by Spring.

    It really depends. I can see someone owning two cars for a necessity, but anything more than that is just a luxury.
