it is prolly due to the fact that most women are by nature more impulse type buyers. Most men usually research things first

got to disagree. at least in my experience, mens car buying was impulse, women did the research.

would say that 88% of the new car buying decisions being made my women being truth in relationships. women make the decisions because women wont let it go when you make a decision they didnt get to tell you what to decide first.

most men just decide its not worth the hassle.

^my theory anyway

I like the cargo net. But don't trust it to hold a gas can upright (Most of the smell is finally gone from my trunk, finally)

And, to defend the women (before they throw a tizzy ) I am the impulse buyer in my family. I hate shopping with my wife. "I just need to grab xxx" 3700 stores in 12 cities later, no xxx, but I can tell you how many different brands there are of it, how many colors it comes in, a price range, options, features, etc....

Pardon me..My mothrer had rules when shopping.

Know what you want, go to store, buy, get the heck out.

Impulse buying explains most of the mods on my car
