I have just moved to BC and found out that the 5 day trip out here started a leak in my drive train which will cost over a grand to fix, plus need some other work done to pass a safety.
I had every intention of using transit and pedal power for getting around, but every so often I need a car for those trips to whistler, or to head out for a hike. I am seriously debating joining the Co-op as an alternative to owning a vehicleâ€¦ In fact if they accept my application it will likely be a done deal. I live in the commercial drive area and they have a few car locations near me, and also a minivan spot should I require it.
I am financially quite able to afford my own car, but the co-op sounds perfect for my needs.
Anyone have any testimonials/comments to help my decision?
