Yeah, you can think of it as you only conjugate the first verb. In this sentence it would be "to need", which you conjugated to "yo necesito". The next verb is usar, which doesn't get conjugated. As well as knowing that "Usar" literally translates to "to use".
If we used the sentence
"Yo quiero leer mi libro", you would only conjugate the first verb which was "to want" to "yo quiero" and the next verb would not be conjugated. It would stay at its base form "leer" which literally translates to "to read" That whole sentence would then read "I want TO READ my book"
Hope this helps anyone
Notice how the sentence is "Yo necesito usar el carro." There's already a conjugated verb (yo necesito - I need). In English, for example, you wouldn't say "I need I use the car." Instead, it would be "I need to use the car," or "Yo necesito usar el carro." Generally, use an infinitive if a sentence already has a conjugated verb. Hope that helps!
Carro sounds better, i actually never have heard coche for car before.
at first time, at "Yo necesito usar el carro" I answered "I need to use the car", but according to duolingo it was wrong, because it should be "I need the car" (it was showed). But now, when I use this answer, that was showed earlie, again it says that it is wrong varient!!! please, could you fix it? I can't write it all in the report, unfortunately
Necesito means "I need." Necesitas means "Yo need." If you want to learn more about verb endings: https://www.enforex.com/language/present-tense.html
It's really hard to hear "usar el" in this sentence. Any tips for deciphering separate words when they get smushed together like this? The o in "necesito" blends with the u in "usar" and I'm not sure why the "el" gets buried, but it's quite tough to pick out the individual words.
Is it just me or does the female voice sound like she's saying "yo necesito sorry carro"? When I hit the turtle speed speech button is sounds like she says "yo necesito usa el carro". I listened over and over again and I dont hear any 'r' at the end of 'usa' but properly it should be usar, not usa!
usar means 'to use', not just 'use'. uso does go with yo. Just like at the begining when we learned i eat, you eat, he eats= yo como, tu comes, el come, so does usar. Yo uso, tu usas, el usa= I use, you use, he uses. The more spanish you learn, the more you will use this pattern.

You dont need to put 'yo' in front of necesito, it still means i need. Duolingo should see that
Uso mean "use" as in "Yo uso una computadora" (I use a computer). But usar means "to use" as in "Yo necesito usar el carro" (I need to use a car). So remember, if in English you would say "to use" it's usar in Spanish. But if you would say just "use" you would say uso for the pronoun i, usa for he/she and usas for you.
