Internet! I need my car to go get to work, and I have computer with internet there. When my pc broke some yrs ago, I did all my internet stuff at work.

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!

Internet. We'd have no nappies in the house or food if I had no car. And I'd never go anywhere.

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.

Easy peasy. I don't drive! Though I think I'd take a month of no internet for a month of not having to do the grocery shop on foot - hate,hate,hate it.

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

Have gone without a car since 2009, when I emigrated to the USA. Internet gone for a couple of days would have me twitchy...
