I've gone without both. I got married a year ago and once I moved in with my husband we didn't have internet until about a month ago, then in January or February my husbands car stopped working so we sold it. I had our son in March and since then I've been without a car on a daily basis. I'm able to walk to most places in our city though, the grocery store is a little less than a mile away so if I need just a couple things I can walk there.

I would take internet over the car ANY DAY!! I somewhat broke the car......In order to put the car in reverse it needs to be in drive, drive is in 2 and park is above the p.......it will take to long to get fixed so that I can drive it. It is still drivable hubby drives it (just deals with it). Thank God we live down the street from the grocery stores and hubby's job :)

I've been without a car for almost 3 years now on an island with lousy mass transit service. At age 67 (in 3 weeks) I have my plastic folder with hitchhiking signs and though I dislike it, I do get around.
However, my telephone runs off of the internet and that is the way I keep in touch with my family, who all live on the mainland. I would say, I can deal without the car.....having no internet would cut me off from my family totally!

I would much rather go without internet. I live far in the country, and the closest even gas station (that has a few necessities on the shelves) is a 5 mile ride on a hilly dirt/gravel road, so not really biking friendly. The nearest town with an actual grocery store and library is about a 20 minute drive. Of course there is no type of taxi service even close, so no way to get anywhere without my car!

Either, I really don't care. I only have to use the car to take my husband back and forth to work, plus he can walk. Internet is a luxury. We didn't have internet for over a year and I was without a car for many years before I got my first car. We don't have cable either.

We only JUST got our first ever car, and it's not currently registered, insured, or drivable :P So definitely go without a car.
Although, I recently spent 10 months without a car OR internet :P kinda sucked. There was a LOT of TV watching.
But definitely easier to go without a car than internet for me :P
