So, I'd like a change of car I think.
No overriding reason, we've had an old 'N' reg Mazda Bongo for the last 4 years, the family really like it, it costs around 4-500 a year in servicing repairs etc, is reliable, comfortable for long journeys etc etc. Performance, handling and economy are dire (21mpg average according to Road Trip), but we don't do that many miles, except on holidays, and I get to sleep in it when I take the bike away.
Complicated bit- I haven't worked for a few years, I look after the kids, and have no idea how to explain to my wife that I'd like a change. Before somebody says to grow a pair, or similar, we have no issues with spending money on stuff that we like- if I fancy a change of bike, or she wants new shoes or a holiday, fine - we know what floats our boats, and get on with it, no dramas.
However, I've shown no real interest in cars in our marriage so don't know how to explain I'd like a change for not much more than change's sake- I can't even decide what type of vehicle I'd like, let alone a model, and secondly, it'd probably be a fair bit more money than a bike ie it'd make a dent in our savings.
I know that people change their cars regularly, and some presumably have non working other halves who'd like a change, so what's the justifications used?
