Owing a car enables you to have full freedom to go and come anywhere at anytime, without depending on the goodwill of others to give or offer you a lift.It's a complete independence.Another advantage is that you don't need to rely on buses or any different way of public transportation.
The disadvantages are numerous like the high prices of fuels, the high cost of maintenance, the insurance (insecurity and criminality in our cities oblige you to have a car insurance).
