Is the Ford F-150 Partially Responsible For the Retirement Crisis?

I’m not saying people can’t have nice things. I don’t want to be that personal finance scold who constantly tells people all of the things they can’t spend money on.

But if you’re struggling financially, your vehicle is the perfect place to find some wiggle room since a more expensive car or truck isn’t going to make you any happier.

My neighbor bought a $50K Tesla - "Only 5 short years until I own it".
Hmm. Borrowing $50K to buy a depreciating asset is not my cup of tea, never was.
