Chocha tuu kama kawaida. Nilinunua gari yangu ya kwanza na mshahara ya 40k gross and it was a pretty decent car.
To the OP, ng'ang'ana and set your mind to it. Inawezekana.
Details, details, details.... Which car, ulikua unamantain aje? Were you using it daily?

Hii mvua imekua saidi and we pedestrians are suffering.

Almost impossible unless hukuwa unalipa rent na ukajinyima Sana of which haimake sense
Lik why save ½ of your income for like 2 years to buy something which will consume ⅓ or more of your monthly income

My first car was a Peugeot 504 nilianua na 300k followed shortly after by a Subaru impreza yenye nilianua after disposing off the 504. By 2011, nilikuwa nimekulakula nikapanda bei kidogo. I used to cover a round journey of 10km daily to and fro. Kuhamisha job to south b cut the distance to about 5km round trip. Let us assume you stay in donholm and work in Industrial area or along thika road. With a 1500cc car, mafuta ya 300 imetosha which is almost the same as what you will pay kwa matatu. Contrary to popular belief, gari hupelekangi garage kila wiki so maintenance shouldn't really be an issue not unless if you drive like an animal or bought a really beat up car.
My point is, with determination and discipline, owning a car sii ngumu. OP akijikakamua na 500k, he is spoilt for choice of good condition vehicles like the second generation Rav4, Premio 240, Allion, NZE, second generation Honda CRV, Subaru impreza etc. All he has to do is patiently look around. Shida in kama yeye ni mtu wa numberplate. Hapo ndio atang'ang'ana kidogo.

Na msiseme ni rent, my rent is Kshs 18,000, na mimi sio mlevi...but to live the life naishi which is comfortable and eat what I want like I do, I still can't afford my dream car ya 1M!
You don't have to start with your dream car, most people never get to drive their dream car.
Changa 350k and buy a kadudu ya 2010.
Pia sio lazima ununue gari hauhitaji, you can always hire a car for special occasions and weekends without incurring unnecessary expenses or being exposed to liabilities that come with car ownership.

Good advice but I would really encourage OP to go for it. Hiring a car comes with its challenges sana sana reliability. Unaweza pewa gari iko na shida ama ukose kama time ya Christmas ama weekend thus inconveniencing yourself.

Shikilia hapo kwa subaru impreza. This is a 2015 model. At 1.35m, would you consider it a worthy purchase?

As compared to say, an axela?

Honestly, I am prejudiced against most Subarus after 2012. I am a Subaru guy myself but for some reasons, the post 2012 Subarus are yet to grow on me. The CVT, body kits, feminine looks, Toyota like plastics kila mahali etc. With that kind of money, my personal preference would be a used forester SH5, outback BR9, CRV or a 2007-2010 rav4 since I feel I would be getting more car for my money as compared to the impreza. My assumption is that wewe sii mtu wa numberplate kama mimi. However, as I said, I am prejudiced against post 2012 subarus.
Kwa Mazda nayo lazima nikubali I am a baby. Never been kin about Mazda. I have to be truthful to you. Maybe @Rene Descartes should weigh in.

You sound like a logical fellow. Gari ni an extra cost burden save that money for a rainy day. If you are comfortable as is using public transport well and good.

(Lakini isikuwe wewe ni @Old Monk unatubeba upus.)

Let's do the math. You earn 100k gross which means kitu 75k-80k Net, right?

Okay. You pay rent plus stima etc kitu 20k,

Food, pleasure na other demands ikule 30k, right?

Umebaki na 80k-20k-30k= 30k

For you to reach 1 million, it will take kitu 30 months (1,000,000 ÷ 30k) = 3 years hivi

Tafuta side hustle which can give you passive income, otherwise owning and maintaining a car of your dream will drain you with that Gross of 100k.
Kumbe unaweza kuwa sensible ghasia hii.
