I get what you're saying, drove a Corolla for years. Way back when, just out of school, I thought I wanted a small truck. One of those Mazdas or Toyotas that weren't much longer than the big American boat-cars I learned to drive on. Then I looked around and realized that no one in my circle of friends at the time had a pickup, and knew I didn't want to be the one with a truck or I'd be helping friends move all the time. I figured I could rent one if I really needed it, but by then a couple of those friends had trucks, so they helped me move. It's similar to when I was dating a fellow who wanted a boat for weekends on the lake. He did the math: how many times would he actually use it, vs. cost of boat/maintenance/slip fees, etc? Instead, he decided to rent one for the half dozen times we went out that summer. Sailing or motoring a different style boat every time he'd laugh, "I'm saving so much money! Dinner's on me!"
