My car is an emotional wreck

Do cars have feelings?

This question haunts me whenever I am in the market for a new automobile. My BMW X5 is currently one month from its lease expiration. I know it, my bank knows it, and my BMW sales rep certainly knows it as evidenced by his near daily texts and phone messages reminding me that a 2017 Hybrid X5 would sure look "sa-weet" in my garage.

I can only hope my car doesn't know it, for I fear what lies ahead if it gets wind that its days are numbered.


Much like a dog can sense when its owner is headed out of town and its temporary destination will be a kennel (or compassionate relatives), cars can feel when a separation is imminent....
