Car in Singapore is just a convenient tool and status symbol. I need a car to move around in Malaysia though. This car spends most of the time in Malaysia than in SG and hardly drink Singapore petrol laugh.gif.

Even with so many ppl driving during peak hours, the public transports are still packed to the brim. So one can imagine what happens when no one drives in Sgp and everyone takes public transport. Some of the passengers will have to sit on top of buses and trains just like in Bangladesh. biggrin.gif

Jokes aside, with our current population and public transport system I would say it's a need for some of us but not all. Largely depends on our public transport. If frequencies of trains & buses are improved, shorter waiting time and reasonable fares I'm sure the needs of a car will be less. But I highly doubt that will even happen at all.

U dun need a house, u jus a need a roof over ur head. U dun need food to survive, u need air & water, just imagine a "vege" patient.
U dun need to wear clothes, jus cover ur "modesty" from us. U dun need transport, u have legs. Everything since human evolution are not needs but wants. isnt it obvious? All that a livng human need is just to breathe, feed/drink & to survive. So a car is definitely a WANT.

Actually I dun need a car also. But I have to give support to the car manufacturers otherwise a lot of ppl will loose their jobs. What will their families rely on. So I must not be selfish and only think for myself. I must buy cars to save ppl from losing their jobs. biggrin.gif

Yes. It is a need.

You need a car to show to others you are successful and better than them.

You can't prove to others you are more superior if you were to queue for taxi or squeeze in bus.

family going out together does not justify that the car is a need. without one, its very troublesome to move around. but troublesome does not mean that we need it

Beside that you dont want to be one of the other unseccessful 4 million Singaporean that can't afford to own car.

Just imagine one day, your son come back from school telling you, his classmate's dad drive a Honda FIT, why you don't have car ?
No face right ?

And all your colleagues are discussing and complaining about ERP but you have no idea of it ! No face right ?

So, it is a need.
