Anyone ever get a new car for Christmas as a gift?

I see these commercials from Lexus and Jaguar where hubbys give their wives a new car as a Christmas gift and wonder how often that happens...

 

Whenever hubby took me to buy a car for my use it was not for a gift (I didn't get a Lexus or Jaguar though)..LOL

No but I would love to.  What a great gift that would be.

The 'people' in those ads breathe rarified air.

If I were married and my husband came home with a new surprise car payment it wouldn't be good.

I personally have not, but my bff was surprised with a new Mercedes in the driveway on Christmas Day by her husband.  The car also also served as a 10-year anniversary gift. I didn't ask anything about the financial arrangements and title, but however that was handled, she was thrilled.  I wonder what her hubby has in mind for #25 which is coming up in 2018.

YES!  Unfortunately it was for my Hot Wheels collection. Smiley Sad

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

Um, no I have not ever received a new car as a gift.  However, I think it's a great idea.  Woman Happy

Nope, never.  But since I work for an insurance carrier, it happens OFTEN.  I see this every holiday.  I once had a gentlemen , purchased a vehicle for his girlfriend for New Years Eve.  At midnight he  walked her outside into his garage where a beautiful jeep sat, with a red ribbon, handed her the car keys and on the key ring was an engagement ring.

THAT IS A WOW MOMENT.  OH MY.  PERFECTION.
