The joys of motoring

A year ago I bought my current car, VW Polo N reg for £1800. Since then I've done 20,000 miles in it and have just had the 2nd service and an MOT.
Of course it needed work to get though the MOT but since I only paid £1800 for the car I'm starting to wonder if it's really worth having cheap cars. The reason for this is that the first service cost nearly £400 and this service and mot has cost nearly £500 and now just a week later there's another problem with the front wheel bearing. Oh sure the car is doing well since it's done over 100,000 miles but pretty soon it'll have cost more in repairs than I paid for the car.

What to do?

Oh, the JOYS of motoring!
