I'm trying to convince my husband that we need a new car, but I'm failing miserably, how do you suggest I go about it?

Dear Trying Hard,
Men are impossible to convince! Just kidding, you're a woman, you can take him. First of all, don't attack him, make it a team effort. Let him know how if you benefit YOU (plural) and not YOU (singular). Stress what you're missing out on. That the new car will be more fuel efficient or give him a visual of how good HE would look in it! And maybe try to start the process without making anything official. Go to the bank, get information on loans, if need be, put the for sale sign up in your car. Try these things out and remember to just be kind and never attack. He'll just walk away from the situation.
