Why can’t the majority of us make the right decisions when selecting and purchasing a vehicle? Why do we get ourselves into situations where we either owe too much on a vehicle, can’t fix it when it breaks or worse, both?
I am going to answer that for you right now; The world has become so flooded with options that it confuses us to what is the best fit for our needs. Now mix expensive depreciating assets we should be buying once every 3 years, cars, and then, depend on the use of our brains that we have conditioned with habits formed from using the technology we use daily. Hundreds of case study have proven that our attention spans are shrinking. You will surely find more info on that subject in other blogs, but for now, please just take my word for it.
Think of this, we scroll all day looking for the next form of stimulation, whether that be from social media platforms, TV, emails or text. We scroll and then when we find something we select it! Well that’s no big deal when it’s a video or an article that doesn’t cost you thousands of dollars! But when it’s a depreciating asset that you’re likely to pay someone just to borrow the money to buy it, while it deprecates, and then 6 months later after it got that first scratch, you see that shiny new car that you just have to have while you are scrolling through Facebook.
I hope this gives you some insight on how and why we do what we do when it comes to purchasing cars. I see people in awful financial situations far too often to not try to make a change or at least educate people in this predicament to let them know physiologically why they are in it, and how to get out.
Take your time, know what you’re buying, seek consultation. If you are in a situation where you owe too much, then trading again is most likely not that answer.
