    Default Why do the people who live in big cities buy more than one cars?

    I've come to know from this forum that it's quite normal to own one big car and one or two small cars. Why do you guys waste money while you're so careful for the fuel average and such? Does 1-2 more KM/L average matter?

    P.S. I have a 2010 Prado and I don't need any other car. Though, I'd like to sell it. Anyone interested PM me.

    the fuel difference you refer to, is at least 10-12 km/l, on average, a big vehicle does 6km/l and a small one does 15. most people in big cities travel around 40-50 kms a day, calculate the fuel cost difference and you shall understand why people do this.

    Lack of good public transport, and two or more breadwinners in a single family who go to different workplaces. Its more of a necessity than a luxury/status symbol thing.
    _ 22 km/l from '03 VTi automatic, with plenty of room for improvement

    For me its not about fuel average. In city traffic, especially in Lahore when so many projects are under construction its pretty difficult job to manage sedan car so in order to save my new car from scratches and all that I use hatchback within city. As far fuel average is concerned my 1.0 vitz consumes more fuel than my Altis 1.6 so i guess that can clear your doubts.

    In smaller cities its very easy to drive, there are no traffic signals, no bumper to bumper traffic. Whenever I come from my factory after couple of days to Lahore I find it very difficult to drive in dense traffic of Lahore

    I don't think it's wise to start a new thread for another question.

    My question is, can one drive without a license as a young teenager in Lahore, Karachi, etc.?

    you can obviously but it would be illegal and you can be stopped anytime if the cops doubt or if you break the signal or anyother law. Then when they ask you for license and you tell them you dont have one, then that would bring up more trouble. Drive it only with a license holder as a passenger or otherwise be very vigilant

    Everyone has his own reasons, but to me the answer is simple.
    Little hatch back in city; easy to park, easy to reverse & easy to drive etc. Most importantly, scratch to small car = heart break..... Scratch to big (and new) car = Heart attack!

    Also in a country where people have calcium deficiency in bones and can't even stand without taking support from a nearby car in the parking, it is better to have small car.
    Some morons even sit on bonnet or trunk......
    Annoying motorcyclists is whole another story........

    It's not about the fuel economy imo.

    If you meant a small car like the Cultus, I'd say that the Corolla or Civic is perfectly tiny car.
