A study has found buying a new car is more pleasurable than buying a new house, new technology, or even starting a new relationship.
Duncan Bone from Australia's Gio Insurance says it has to do with the fact buying a new car is now within reach of more of us.
"New cars have become a lot more affordable. In the past five years, with the strong Aussie dollar and competition between car manufacturers and lower imports really making a difference."
