I see, so the basic idea being that if something that you own has kept you going and will continue to do so, there is no point in upgrading it, just like that saying, the cheaper your pleasures are, the richer you will be

Thank you so much for taking the time to explain :)

Drive your car until it dies. Any maintenance is still cheaper than a new car payment.

But the more we delay the maintenance, the more fuel it will keep on guzzling though...
