Just like how some people here like to boast about how they full cash everything and look down on others who have to take a loan for something .... As if everyone will have to ask them for help if they cannot pay up their loans ....

Buy within one's means.... [bounce2]

 

As long as one is able to afford the monthly expenses and no need to borrow from others ... it's their choice [bounce2]  

 

If everything need to pay full cash then there are quite a long list of items which one will never get to enjoy it in their life time..... [grin]

 

It's their $$$ and their choice so there is no right or wrong :a-noway:

if the convenience and satisfaction of owning a car is more than the sacrifices on other stuff due to their financial constraint, then they happy can liao. 

 

i guess this is why many young couple say they die die must have a car.

nothing wrong with wanting to own a car (which is why we are here in MCF), but need to see the reasons for saying die die must own...

would you sacrifice everything else to own a car?

i think this article is trying to portray owning a car with low income as something of a wrong mindset. then sell garment's initiative of car lite SG...

I think if they do not spend beyond their means, are not being subsidised by current transfers from parents, who are we to begrudge them their choices. #justsaying

True, i have a friend told me he dont need a car, waste money to buy car before he has kids. And after he has kids liao, he bought a car, told me inconvenience to take public transport when kids are young, and after kids in school still need a car cause need to fetch kids to tuition, swimming etc classes, now cannot live without a car.  [rolleyes]

paying full cash doesnt mean anything. if you can generate higher return by taking loans .. why not. actual car loan is translated to be around 4 to 5% instead of the proclaimed 2+% due to the way the calculate. thus if you can get higher return of maybe 20% then why not take loan. nett you still make 15%. so who is stupid is subjective who you look at. i dont see anything wrong taking loan. many company take loans to expand. the same concept.
