    such as when

    Source : writing practice
    We have used my car in many cases such as when my son first came home after his birth, when I go to work every day, and when my family goes camping, etc
    .
    My car has been with my family for seven years.

    If there's anything awkward, could you let me know, especially "such as when" part?

    Re: such as when

    1) You've used such as when correctly, but you should put a comma before it.

    2) in many cases is not good. Do you mean in many different situations or many times?

    3) It's not right to use We as a subject when you mention going to work. Your family don't go to work with you, do they?

    4) You can't use present perfect in the first clause, and then use present simple later on. Those tenses don't agree in this sentence.

    5) Don't say, etc.

    Re: such as when

    Say:

    many times

    Or

    quite often

    Also, say:

    when we brought my son home ....

    I would say:

    I have owned that car for seven years.

    (I don't regard cars as pets.)

    Re: such as when

    To avoid the problematic use of "We" at the start, you could start with "Our car is used in lots of different situations, ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
