what cars? the picture is all trucks

Motoring 'cheaper than in 1988

roads are full of trucks, foreign ones drain our economy of 55 million quid....each year... if motoring is cheaper, then why are people poorer? Must be because we have a stable economy with no inflation and affordable houses!!!

  • Owning and maintaining a vehicle is substantially cheaper now than it was twenty years ago. It’s a fact – when a political lobby group like the RAC’s own data shows this you have to accept the fact that it is cheaper.

    The evidence is before your very eyes – the roads are full of cars and most households have multiple car ownership. We have moved within one generation from a position where only the wealthy could afford to own and run a vehicle to one in which the majority of people own cars.

    Cars are now cheaper to own than ever before – even with rising fuel prices. Because something is paradoxical and doesn’t fit with your particular perception is doesn’t mean the evidence is wrong it means you need to re-evaluate your opinion.

  • Off-topic. Try petrolheads.co.uk instead.

    Anyway, headlines like “cheaper than in 1988” are about as meaningful as Rightmove’s “house prices still up compared to 2005”.

  • I wonder if the used car market will soon be flooded with BMW Minis belong to former EAs, who got the sack. Maybe as cheap as Ford Escort? Hmm, will be a dilemma whether to buy or not. Bit like an ALDI bag. You know it is a bargain, but you don’t want being to be seen with it!!
