At some point in people´s life there is the time when you need to buy a car. For transportation, social status, self indulgence etc. Of course, some may have been dreaming of it for several years – how it´s going to look like, the brand, the color etc.
When you actually have the possibility and resources/cash/money to buy the car it may limit your original picture of the car. Also the timing of the purchase may differ from the planned. And sometimes, even going to a milk store can end up with you buying a car. That´s what happened to me and my family. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon a quick stop at a local car dealer and there it was: Shiny, fresh, cool gray shaped and ready to be picked up.
Anyway, almost everybody dreams of a sport car with huge amount of horsepower and low consumption. And my selection? Renault Laguna station wagon (year 2000, purchased as used in 2005.) 1,6 litres with the smallest engine that you can have in the model. At that time, it was the perfect choice for our family.
Of course, after the purchase I started defending the car as the best deal. Anybody who has bought a car knows it´s always a good deal… Lots of space, even an air condition! and a huge car trunk. Before the purchase our family had increased to three after the birth of our beautiful daughter.
So she needs to be kept safe in a big car and cool at summer times. Of course, more confident I became with my selection when Renault won the Formula 1 constructors championship. There was even an ad campaign in TV for Renault about two men arguing about their cars and the other defended that his Renault is almost the same as F1 champion car and the other said it differs a lot from formula 1.
It is only human that after a big purchase you try to convince yourself that your selection was right and reasonable and money well spent. Human mind works in mysterious ways, instead of buying milk for your family you end up spending a huge amount of money, sometimes with very quick decision. How reasonable is that? Laguna TUV
And what happened to milk? It was bought at seven eleven.
