well that depends. If you really need the car then sure. But if you don't really need it then it's just going to be a pain in the ass. Sure it's nice to have one and you will definitely use it once in a while. But if you don't really need it then it's best not to get it since insurance etc costs quite a lot.
Take me for example. I pay about 600e/year for insurance and about 100e/year taxes. So that's already about 700e/year, that should be roughly $1050. Plus fuel, and with todays prices that is a lot. (I pay about 1.42e per litre) If I didn't need the car for work I wouldn't want to have it.
Don't know about the insurance prices in the usa, but I've heard that what I pay is very little compared to what people in Britain pay.
