    a car sits

    Can I use the verb 'to sit' as in "My friend bought a car but it's been sitting unused in the garage ever since."?

    Re: a car sits

    I just came across an intersting example "The limousine is sitting outside.". Does it mean that the car is waiting?

    The limousine may be waiting for someone, or it may just be parked.
