is it ever worth owning more than 1 car?

is it ever worth owning more than 1 car? Ive heard a lot of people saying its important to have a beater as a second car but to me it just sounds moronic

>double maintenance
>double registration/taxes fees
>have to pay more insurance
>cars dont like sitting without being driven, so you are sometimes gonna have to drive the shitty beater even if there is nothing wrong with your nice DD

meanwhile, if you just have 1 car then you can spend all of your resources on buying a really nice car you really like and taking care of it and IF it ever breaks down then you can just catch an uber and it will be cheaper than all of the above shit for 2 cars

          I was a KHV until 28, DESPITE GOING TO PARTIES, lol
          It wasn't until I got fit and on tinder that I changed that, only to get my dream girl from college, frick her twice and then get dumped by her BPD ass, fricked me up for a good year afterwards. Fricked some MILF to fill the void, then a childless cougar I've been with for over a year now. My relationship doesn't make long term sense but I'm too stupidly attracted to her to bail out (and would hate myself for hurting her). I was probably happier as a virgin, premarital sex is a mistake.

          I can't even remember the last time I hung out with someone -- I think the closest thing was attending a company happy hour at a shitty restaurant over five years ago (I remember that much because it was back when we had our old office).

        You're not alone there. I remember a workplace morale meeting where they asked if everyone considered the lockdown a negative aspect of their life. I was the only one that stated a neutral, or even positive change due to lockdowns.

          To be fair, I encountered Hemi-Sync out of boredom during lockdowns and if any of those out-of-body-experiences have any credence, I will never be left alone, similar to the NSA joke that they will never leave the public unmonitored for even a moment.

          Now I wake up seeing ghostly grids and it's steadily turning into a realization that the timespace reality is a steadily degrading illusion was the waveform perception doesn't feel as concrete and certain as it used to. Weird audio tapes, that's for sure.

            There was a great YouTube channel Phase..something. I forget the name.

    I had 3 shitboxes at one point. Spent most of my spare time getting the next one running before the current driver broke down on me. I was never stranded because I always did the repairs before the issue got too bad but I got tired of being up to 11:00pm covered in oil just so I can reliably make it to work the next day.

    yes, yes, yeah, yep, shure, absolutely and 7 times yes again just in case you didnt get it the first time.
    >double maintendance
    the beater you dont give a shit about so you just drive it anyway. its the whole point, a car you dont care about so you can do maintendance and have periods of downtime on your good car.
    if you can afford some maintendance you can buy a slightly bigger car, truck or van that lets you haul shit around but its up to you.
    >cost
    how much is it really when you go for the lowest option? its 40€/month for me, well worth it.
    >sitting
    non issue, you end up not using up your good car since you will be driving the beater most of the time. trust me...
    and it makes it more fun every time you take out your good car.
    ideally you should have 3 cars, so wastly different you have one for everything life can throw at you and every time you go between them you get this nice

    I'd say it's only worth it if you can get it for a tenth (maybe 20th) of the price of your main vehicle. If you have a 10k or less car you'd be better off putting that money into something with more reliability or mileage.

    But if you had a 20k car, it's value is probably gonna go down fast, and having a 2k beater so you could repair the 20k car would do you a lot better than taking it to a shop and dumping money into it.
    A few months ago I had my pump replaced on my car (regular maintenance) for 1.8k (which if I did it myself it'd be less than $500), and they also kept the car longer than they said and they returned it without power steering so they could try to keep it even longer (I called them out on it and fixed it in their lot). Let's say you fall for the scam, you also have to pay for a rental vehicle -- that's an additional 300-500 dollars per week (for a cheap vehicle) -- plus whatever they try to scam you for, so you're probably paying 3k or more when you could've bought a car for 1.8k and fixed the other car yourself for 500 and a weekend.

    It sort of depends on what you're capable of doing. The other option is to just buy and lease new cars so the warranty will cover everything (some places cover rentals), but then you're paying for more than what the car is worth anyways. Inevitably, vehicles are just an expense unless you make them do work for you.

    nah i would rather have 2 cars that are cheap and are specialized like 1 car thats comfy, fuell efficant and has back seats and one car thats older and more spartan in features. You cant have both in one car and some do that but at a high premium like M or AMG

    It's worth it especially if you have shitboxes that need repairs and shit. You're spreading out the wear and tear across 2 or more vehicles which means you're doing about the same amount of maintenance. Registration is like $80 for 2 years, pretty negligible. Insurance is pretty negligible too. You generally only have one vehicle as your primary vehicle. Adding on a second pleasure vehicle is only a few hundred a year. Unless you're some sultan hoarding cars it's pretty easy to give 2 or 3 vehicles enough drive time to not let them rot away.

    Owning two cars is like owning two women. Depending on your circumstances and capabilities, both will need attention to keep them around. If you are literally incapable of doing that, stick to just the one.

    Beaters are only worth it if you live in rust belt hell. Having a practical daily and a separate fun car is always a good idea if you can manage it though, especially if you want your fun car to be something that needs constant wrenching or you do high-risk stuff like trackdays or hardcore canyon running with it.

    >double maintenance
    No. The mileage is dramatically less and the car is older so it's less featured and parts are more affordable.
    >double registration/taxes fees
    Those are based on age and/or vehicle value so it won't be double.
    >have to pay more insurance
    No that's value based and dependent upon your driving record, melanin, and credit.
    >cars dont like sitting without being driven, so you are sometimes gonna have to drive the shitty beater even if there is nothing wrong with your nice DD
    The entire point is to drive it a lot to keep miles off your good vehicle. It would BE your DD. That's what a beater is for.

    >worth
    Define "worth".

    For example, if you are obsessed with accumulating money and care for nothing more than dying with a large fiscal legacy, no, it probably isn't "worth" owning multiple cars in any case because it isn't absolutely necessary. If you like driving, yes it is probably "worth" it. For me, I have a family car that I use to commute and drive the kids around when necessary, haul parts and supplies, and it's inherently limited in its fun ability because it is necessarily fairly large. Because I like driving I also have two fun cars which are old and small and varying degrees of fast, and 5 motorcycles for different purposes. Financially maybe not the absolute best for my retirement and ultimate net worth but I'm not money obsessed a long as I can retire in my 60s and so far my 401k and savings say I'll be able to do that.

    While I have a business that relies pretty heavily on moving shit I can honestly say having 7 trucks 2 cars and 2 bikes is pretty sane as shit gets tied up or breaks and backups are super handy. Hell sometimes I want more to just scatter around properties to make shit easier for movement if things are hooked and in use.

    Yes, two or more vehicles is optimal, especially if you live where it snows. This way you can drive your nicer car for fun during the nice weather and your crappier vehicle in the snow. Also you have a backup to do mods or maintenance to your other one. Personally I like the newer car/ older truck combo. Really this works best if you own a house and have parking.
    Maintenance is not really doubled since youre driving the same total amount, just one of the cars half the time. Similar with insurance, your yearly mileage is the same and your older vehicle should be liability only, not costing that much.
    I drive my truck in the summer regularly to pick up dirt/mulch, to HD, go dirt biking, etc so it stays pretty well maintained. I park my car over the winter for 6mo and put it on the trickle charger and it is G2G. Bought the truck for 10k 12 years ago and the car for 39k 6 years ago. 145/28k respectively.
