These cars will ruin you – repair costs and liability insurance

Why do blondes drive their tires? Because they can’t spell Volkswagen …

Or this: Two shaved young men talk in front of the “Biedronka” estate. – Have you heard that Borówa did his golf tuning? He put on a transparent door so that everyone could see the stripes on his new pants …

And do you know why alpha romeo drivers don’t greet each other in the afternoon? Because in the morning they saw each other on the site …

The most popular car brands could be made a richly illustrated book

From jokes ridiculed by owners of the most popular car brands could be made a richly illustrated book. No strength on earth will reconcile feuding “golfers” (lovers of German TDI) with “alphists” (followers of the Giugiaro style). Oil for fire in this holy war adds reports on the failure of vehicles.

Depending on their authors (Dekra, Adac, TUV), some “Italian” or “Frenchman” stands out on the exposed, shameful place. And they win – as in football – Germany, assisted by supposedly trouble-free cars from the Far East.

We run away from insurance, although most companies offer convenient packages combining OC and AC, with large discounts for “accident-free” drivers. (the current OC / AC offer at Aviva is noteworthy) .

So let’s end with another joke, this time about home insurers … To protect the car against thieves, the owner locked his dog in it for the night.
