Scooters – a good idea?
We're going to need a second vehicle at some point in the next year or two and we're thinking about getting one of those little scooters. My husband would be using it to get to and from school and maybe for small errands, while I'll use the car for toting around a kid. But we are wondering if they're worth the investment. So here are my questions... - are they worth the money? is getting a used one safe/good? - anyone know the insurance situation on these things? - do they break down/etc a lot? Basically, we're trying to decide if a scooter is a good way to get a 2nd vehicle that's less expensive than a car, or if we just need to pony up and save for a second car. Since we're grad students, this means saving for a long time to get something that isn't a clunker. Merci!
