My first family car…is a junk car. No kidding. It’s an old Kancil car my husband bought from my father in law, and I was told that the car has not only changed owner for more than 3 times, but it survived an accident that nearly send my younger brother in law to an early grave too.
I have no idea why my father in law sold that car to my husband. One would have thought that the car is no longer safe to be on the road, but since we were very youngÂ back then and desperate for a car to move around with but couldn’t exactly afford a brand new car, we bought the car for Rm3,000 from my father in law.
We paid cash. A car is a car. As long as it can drive us around… it was good enough for us.
Once upon a time, I would have think that Rm3,000 for a Kancil was a very good deal, but thinking back, while the car did serve us well and get us to where we want to go, I got to admit, that junk really did give us a lot of problems. Hell, it even give us problem the first day we brought it back! The first time my husband drove the car back home, the drive shaft of the car wasn’t exactly in a tip-top consdition and it konck on him in the middle of the road, and we had to send it back for repair before we could really drive the car.
And if you think that is the end of our nightmare with the car, then you’re dead wrong. The car is highly expensive to maintain and it would have at least gobble up Rm800 each time it break down. One thing will break down after another, and each time such thing happen, I will go ape on my husband, cuz for what it’s worth, the car gives us nothing but misery each time something goes wrong with it’s engine and stuff. Nothing ever goes right with that car.
It happens almost every month, and it’s safe to say that I will go ape on my husband each time the car gives us trouble. Not to sound ungrateful, but sometimes, I wonder if my father in law’s intention was to help us or sabotage us. 🙁
Anyway, I suppose my father in law feels guilty whenever I hinted at him that the car have been eating most of our hard earned money, and he offered a newer car, an old model Iswara atÂ reasonably cheap price. Another second… ahemm… third hand car. It used to belong to my second brother in law.
Thinking that any car would be better than the wretched Kancil, we took it, but having to deal with the old Kancil that we bought from my father in law, I’m still skeptical with the performance, and started to browse around for better options. You know… just in case this ‘new’ car started to give us problems like our old Kancil. As they say, ‘once bitten, twice shy’ and while you wish for the best, you got to be prepared and expect the worst too.
