I got a 04 Honda Accord coupe in May 07, then my daughter was born so i needed a 4-door. Traded in the Accord for a 06 Dodge Charger in Nov. 07,customized it then crashed it in August 08. I drove a rental for a month (insurance paid for it) and got a 06 Infiniti M45. Dont believe me? Heres the pics.

Got this...

Depends on which side you live on. It's doable in the city on any side, just far safer and in a lot of cases nicer on the Northside.

eh I used the big blue bus back in 01-02 to get around santa monica, it was alright since I was like 13 or 14 at the time. LA's public trans.for the most part is non-existent, the few places it goes to in the valley I would use but it's $15 round trip for 40 miles, cheaper to just drive


if metrolink tickets were 5 bucks I might use it once or twice a month but they stay ripping people off so nahh

I will use what is better for the situation. Right now I live in the suburbs so the car is why better than the bus or the metrolink. When I move to LA and livenear downtown, I will probably take the redline and the buses most of the time and only us my car if I am leaving the city.

where i hail, minneapolis, it's too hard to get around without a car, which sucks imo...i'd rather be able to ride the rail to work everyday.

I don't mind taking PT, but it's just easier for me to drive because I don't live near MTA service. On the weekends, i'll drive to the LIRRstation and take that into the city, but other than that, I don't really use the MTA.

its all relative to situation. i took the bus when i was back home in the earlier parts of HS cuz i had to and hated it. then later parts drove the whip cuzit was easier to get +%*% if you had a whip and it was just "cool". got to college and stayed like 15mins from campus and not having a car isnt anoption. moved close to campus and i havent drove my whip in months because there's no need to and its like literally an expense that has completely goneaway

plus havin a nice whip seems marginal to me nowadays. dont get it twisted. benz's and all that is nice, but the depreciation on cars is
. and if it aint what id really want(lambo, rari, range, etc etc) how important is that

truth.

i'd rather just roll in a reliable accord or somethin for savings purposes. rather put that money into keeping a nice house/apartment.

Public transportation in 619 is horrible. I honestly would take the bus/trolley on a regular basis if it didn't take an hour to travel 8 miles.

I'm bougie as hell so I know where you're coming from (
) but I've never felt like I was too good for public transportation
When youwork downtown parking gets really expensive so it's more practical to take the subway/train/streetcar etc. I still prefer to drive though

I have a bus that comes by my apartment about every 15 minutes. It goes from here to campus (about a mile away), hitting a few other spots along the way. Ineed to start riding that instead of driving, but I just like having my car on campus. That way I can go to pick up food or run any other errands I need toright after class, instead of having to wait for the bus to take me to the apartments.
