    Need help for this sentence

    Hello!
    I am trying to make this sentence but I am not sure if this is grammatically correct or not? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Here is the sentence.

    ''Therefore I had bought my first car in December 2011 so that I could go to my work and to my university as well''. I am trying to explain the reason why it was necessary for me to buy a car that I had bought 4 years ago.

    Regards,
    John

    It needs simplifying and a change of tense at the beginning.

    "Therefore, in December 2011, I bought my first car so I could get to both work and university."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
