Awesome letter of the month
TWO WHEELS OR FOUR?
My sister-in-law is planning to buy her firstever vehicle which she intends to drive every day. Those thoughts began because she wants to avoid traffic on her way to work, and minimize the time she consumes compared to when she commutes.
So my question is: Which type of vehicle should a first-time driver and buyer like her opt for? A budget, pre-loved automatic transmission car? Or a brand-new motorcycle? Given the budget constraints in the past, it will be the first time for her to own her own form of motorized transport.
Her sister and I both agree that a secondhand car would be more practical because it has seating capacity and can be used for family trips as well, but my sister-in-law isn’t convinced. She says that she might not be able to afford its maintenance, and a motorcycle is better because she can make singit.

As you already know, we love both cars and motorbikes at Top
Gear PH, but traffic has gotten so bad in Metro Manila, even a small scooter can get caught in a jam! She should try driving and riding before making a decision. In any case, kudos to her for wanting a motorbike. Much respect.
