Expenses involved in owning a vehicle

While local intelligence, security agencies, especially in panaji, goa are quick to defame people who do not have a vehicle as uneducated people with no income, there are a lot of expenses involved in purchasing, maintaining and using a car or any vehicle which include
– initial investment to purchase the vehicle
– registration fees
– insurance
– fuel
– repairs
– keeping the vehicle clean, washing, painting

On a website, a vehicle owner was complaining how the insurance company was not paying all the expenses to repair the car, which was involved in an accident, the insurance company was paying less than 40% of the expenses. However car and vehicle owners have a better social status, especially in small towns, so they should be ready to pay the extra amount or not purchase a vehicle at all
