It happens all the time. Either we see something someone else has or we see something advertised and we gotta have it. We think, they have it, why can't I? It may not even be impulsive; we could be thinking about it for days, and we decide we want it.
The last two vehicles I've owned (which includes my current vehicle) have provided excellent service. I did not buy them new; I bought my current car with 32,000 miles on it and it now has almost 105,000 miles.
