On a serious note, I think one of the most ways we decide on a car has a lot to do with our personalities. I,pesonally, take decisions with my heart. Not only in cars but in most of the respects. That explains why i bought a Palio as recenlty as in October 2003, when Fiat's Palio bubble had burst long time back.

150 km ??? Thats unbelievable ... atleast in Delhi for sure.
Guys ... if 150 or even 100 is all that easy , do let me know. Maybe I am being to polite to the showroom guys.
But yes ... if there is facility to take the car for 150 or even 100 Km on my own expense ...it would be great.
And by my expense I mean just the fuel cost ...

No marraige is different and more dnagerous. U cant change your wife again.LOL.
but I definitely bought a lancer because I liked it. I had the option of a octavia 2.0(1.8 was not out) wonder why I didnt buy a skoda.
now that is one helluva eg of buying from the heart.

How many of you have kissed or patted your car after a long journey. This January, I did about 4,500 kms. in about 10 days. Beleive it or not, no coolant top-up, no oil top-up and no Tyre pressure checked either. I criss-crossed 5 states and I all did was fill up fuel and nothing else. I won't tell you which car it was because thats not what matters but its about your emotions ?

Sticking to the cars , i feel in todays world choosing the right car has to be a blend of both ,Heart and Mind .
In my case , what i do first is to see how good my heart feels when
i test drive the car (whether it really goes Hmmm...) and when my heart gives me the green signal ,thats where the mind comes into play and all the calculations starts ....
At the end of the day it has to be a blend of both to keep us happy throught (unlike marriage .lol) and i am sure thats what we all do ....

The emotional aspect of buying a car
This is my first post, so please excuse me if you have heard this before, of if it sounds too much out of whack. I would love any feedback you may have.
I am putting up a link to my blog as the write-up, in two parts, is quite long.
Buying a car blues
This is the more intangible part of the buying process – the overall experience, the gut-feel, the hearsay – in short, everything that is not admissible as evidence in court, but IMHO, counts more. All through the buying process, I wanted to rave and rant in turns. This is it.
I don’t think my wife and I are any different from others. Buying a car is as much an emotional process as it is a rational one for most families/couples, and manufacturers/dealers may just be able to close that elusive sale if they paid more attention to this aspect (I may be wrong, but I doubt it).
Hope this is useful!
