Nowadays, any Chinese can enjoy the luxury (奢侈) of owning a private car, if he or she has enough money to buy it. Having a car of your own means no more traveling on crowded buses or subway trains, and you can drop off the children at school on the way. What’s more, it also means that you can enjoy the weekends and holidays better, because with a car you can go to places where the regular buses and trains do not go to.
However, besides the advantages of owning a car, there are also disadvantages of owning a car. On one hand, with the increasing number of the private cars, the roads are becoming more and more crowded,and it often makes the journey hard and more and more traffic accidents happen. On the other hand,we know the prices of gasoline and repairs are constantly rising, so it is very expensive to run a car. You have to pay more for a license and insurance.
Comparing the advantages and disadvantages of owning a car, we can make a conclusion that the advantages of owning a car outweigh (超过) the disadvantages. Therefore, it seems that China should increase its output of cars and make the private car market larger. The result would be that cars would become cheaper and cheaper.
