No upkeep, no maint, no car pmts, no leases, no depreciation on the cars ...

Another friend is paying $1,100/mo extra for his boy, ONE BOY - they are also considering.

In SoCA automobile society, this trend is not a rarity.

Those are crazy numbers. What do they drive, new Mercedes?!

Wouldn't expect a 10 year old Kia to be that much. Right?

Those are absolutely absurd amounts to be paying for insurance.

Wow, I must live a sheltered life as I had no idea people were living off Uber and such after selling off their motor vehicles. In some respects and in the right geographical area I could see it as an option, but I don't think I could ever buy into it unless my kids put me in a "home". Funny how some of this stuff seems to be happening quite rapidly as I get older. Reminds me of the sales guys at the dealership where I bought my SS who used to go out and start a demo SS just to hear in run then shut it off and go back inside the building. Where are we really going I wonder????

Both my 70 year old aunt does this for the last 3 years in Palm Desert and my 30 year old sister-in-law has done this for the last year in Los Angeles.

It's not unusual in most populated places.
