Does anyone else's hubby change trucks like they change their underwear?

I have been with DH for 7 yrs. And in that time the longest he has kept a truck is 1 yr. Does anyone have any insight to this behavior?

  • My dad did that too. Luckily, (kinda) hubby has bad credit so, we have to put though into every vehicle.

  • We buy a vehicle almost every year (sometimes more often) because of accidents, mostly. The drivers here are horrible!!

  • I know how you feel. My husband bought a car in August 2005. I told him that he could pick whatever he wanted since this was going to be his first brand new vehicle. He chose the car and then said that I could drive it and he took my car. That lasted for 6 months and then he wanted to trade in our paid off car for a new Dodge Ram. I was against this but he did it anyways. 11 months later he found out that he was going to be deployed so he wanted to trade his truck in for me a new vehicle (I totaled my car). I was just going to buy another car with the insurance money but he insisted that we trade it in because it was a gas guzzler. Well, it was under so that tacked on about $5000 to the cost of my car. 6 months after that, he came home for R&R and bought a new car, the second day he was back. I told him that he had to pay off this car before he traded it in or bought another vehicle. Cont..

  • Cont.. We just paid off my car and I can already tell that he is wanting to buy another truck. Occasionally, he will drive through the parking lot of car lots but I have forbidden him from talking to a salesperson. They seem to get him every time!

  • That's the thing, he has bad credit too. He trades stuff all the time. I curse the day I told him about Craigslist. I told him tonite that I was going to do that child safety thing to it to lock him out. He was a mechanic by trade, so its not like we can't make something work.

  • He did before me got married, lol. After we got married that stopped. In the four years we've been married he's traded in his truck once, and that was to get a quad cab because we were having a baby.

  • Mine would like to change his driving vehicle constantly, I know he looks. He doesn't though, what he does is take on projects. He'll buy a "good deal" (in woman speak... "piece of crap") fix it and make a profit. He likes to build them more than drive them. lol
