Nowadays, any Chinese can enjoy the luxury of owning a private car, if he or she can afford it. Having a car of your own means no more travelling to work on crowded buses or subway trains, and you can drop the children off at school on the way. Moreover, 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, and so you can find a quiet scenic spot with no crowds. However, there are drawbacks to owning a car. For one thing, with the increase in car ownership in recent years, the roads are becoming more and more crowded. This often makes the journey to work more of a nightmare than a dream. For another, it is not cheap to run a car, as the prices of petrol and repairs are constantly rising, not to mention the price you have to pay for a license and insurance coverage.现在,任何中国人都能享受拥有一两私家车的奢侈生活,如果他或她买得起的话。拥有一两自己的车意味着上班不用挤公交或地铁。而且还可以在途中接小孩上学。而且也意味着你可以更好地享受周末与假期,因为你有车,你可以去公交车火车去不到的地方,并且你可以轻松地找到安静又风景美的地点。然而,有车也有不好的地方,比如伴随着拥有私家车的人数的增长,道路也变得越来越拥挤。这时常使得上班的行程比噩梦还可怕。另外,运行一辆车也不是那么便宜的事,例如油价与修理费用不断上升,更不用提不得不支付的执照费与保险费。 ——译文来自: alsk999
