Top 5

Top 5 Reasons you know you bought the right car

You’ve heard of buyer’s regret, but what about buyer’s satisfaction? Here are a handful of reasons you know you bought the right car…

HERE’S HOW YOU know you’ve made the right choice:

  1. A photo of the car is your social media profile pic or PC wallpaper;
  2. You spot other cars of your type, maybe even parking next to them;
  3. You’re a member of some sort of enthusiast forum or club related to the car;
  4. If the car was written off, you’d get another;
  5. Your usernames or passwords involve the car;
  6. Friends and family buy you presents related to your specific car; and
  7. When you lock the car and walk away, you turn back for one last look.

Being truly happy with a car is a surprisingly rare. But if you get there, it’s like being in a relationship with someone you love.
