Not necessarily picking on any of your points, they're valid but there's another angle to this which I think is often overlooked. How many people buy a new car for say 15000 and then sell it 3 years later for 5000 or less? On the other hand, if I buy a car for 2500 and spend say 5000 over 3 years (which I doubt very much), i'm deemed to have wasted 5000! Why should we expect to buy something at good value and then whine when something needs replacing? > controller (you) whilst carrying the utility insurance policy.

There is a 60/40 chance you or yours will be at fault and I don't think 250 for comphrehensive is expensive at all! In fact it was cheaper than some third party only quotes for me. > It's no more a risk than carrying a fully financed brand new lemon that > anyone may or may not total at the end of three years I suppose.
