I calculate that if I sell my car (~$12k), I will collectively save around $22,000.00 over the next 2.5 years (before investment) in insurance, gas, maint, depreciation, etc. until I am out of school, and can make a new decision from there.
I live in Philadelphia, and my commute to work is ~2m, which I bike, and it's only a few blocks to classes.
What I use my car primarily for are beach trips (every few weekends), and to go down to DE (around a 35 mile trip that is extremely bike unfriendly). I can take public transport home, but my beach trips would be done unless I go with a friend.
Just wondering; if I want to drive my parents car when I go home, what kind of insurance will I need? I am paying $1100 a year for insurance currently.
What would my ballpark costs be to maintain a license and insurance to just drive my parents cars, and the GF's car from time to time?
