For context I F(39) have two vehicles at the moment, a coupe and a motorcycle.
I got my car back in 2020 when I bought it from my grandparents via a loan I took out in my name.
Ever since I got my car, it was kind of an understanding that my mom F(43) may ask to use it once in a while. She already has a vehicles of her own. It doesn’t bother me a lot since my car isn’t a newer model and it is my first car so mistakes have been made. Well, my loan will be paid off on the car next valentine, and I am looking to get an SUV.
My reasons are that by next valentine both of our dogs will be very big size so it will be nice with how much we take them to the dog park. Here is where I think I might be the a-hole.
My mom has helped me with the loan at some point. I told her since she uses my car just as much as I do, whether it is to take care of the dogs, just drive it daily, or take it to Johor a road trip with her friend. Then I want her to put money towards it.
I told her the other day that when I get my SUV, I want to sell the 2015 coupe so that I don’t have three vehicles in my name. I definitely can’t afford that amount of Insurance payments.
Getting a loan for my new vehicle won’t be hard since the coupe will be paid off and I am being reasonable by looking for something that would be a similar monthly payment as what I have now.
My mother practically snapped at me mid-sentence claiming that I can’t sell it since she put money into it and that she will pay the insurance on it instead of me. After she finished her outburst, I tried to rationalize to her the fact that she already has three vehicles of her own.
She would not budge on the fact of keeping my coupe. I looked at her and told her that if she wants to keep my coupe then she needs to sell her 2006 coupe.
We really don’t need the four vehicles between the two of us…
