hi all

really dont know what to do!

basically ive been out of a job for 4 months.i got letter after letter rejecting me from jobs ive applied for.as most of you know ive sorted my cv out/changed my hair doo and got funky specs now to hopefully help

the dilema is though

i drive my 1.6 sport everyday and the tax is up at the end of the month.not sure what to do


re-tax it and drive it breaking more parts....or take it off the road and sort the parts out then once i got a job bring it back out?


curently ive had a new o/s balljoint and its knocked the tracknig out,im thinking if i keep driving it it will wreck the tyres and n/s bearing as it pulls to the right slightly


what shall i do?

Tracking problems will bugga up your tyres. mine were eaten up in 1month. ild get that sorted asap if you carry on using.

Can you cope without your car? if so- taking it off the road may be sensible. would save loads, and im sure a new job will be around the corner

yeah thinking that may be the best option.im normally the main driver out of my mates but they have cars so im sure picking me up isnt a problem.really gotta get my head down and look 10x more.im waiting on 10 people now as to what ive applied for so my fingers are crossed!

might get myself a car cover and leave it on driveway

Take it off the road mate. I was in the same kinda situation but just managed to sort out car funding in time. It won't hurt to SORN it for a bit.

Stay with Vauxhall mate! you know it makes sense I'd say keep your current corsa or buy the smoothed white one. Im not too keen on those old polos to be honest with you
