You might reach out to someone, or a like-minded group, and ask for car-buying advice. If they collectively give you an answer you weren’t expecting, do you consider that answer? Or do you simply seek out more validation for the purchase you’ve already made in your mind? It’s a question resulting from answers I often seen posted on the Internet.
Take, for example, our own Kamil Kaluski who was asked about car buying advice by a family member. He answered the initial question based on the needs of the question asker. And that person responded with a vehicle that is nothing like what they said they wanted.
I can only assume that the XC40 Recharge was already a strong contender in their head. And they had likely hoped that Kamil would push them down that same path. But the XC40 Recharge, while a nice premium EV, is not a large SUV with good cargo space and road-trip ability.
Have you experienced this inherent need of purchase questioning and validation in your own lives? Have you been on either side of it?
