An interesting topic to discuss. I have also come across many pathetically maintained cars but I believe there could be various reasons for their bad state, including:
- Away from the owner: The one who hasn’t spent hard earned money on purchasing the car generally fails to understand its actual value.
- Always in hands of driver: Some people prefer handing over the responsibility of their cars entirely on chauffeurs. As a result, it causes the bad fate for the car and if the car is some big luxury model, then not much to say because on the roads – the chauffeurs driving these cars consider themselves no less than being their owners itself.
Apart of it, if still the car is in bad condition – there could be more possibilities such as lack of interest from owner’s part, poor financial condition, and perhaps too great financial condition that even if a car is wasted, it doesn’t matters much for them.
