why do car commercials act like you're supposed to buy a new car every year?

i have to say,they are so annoyingly pushy about it. they actually literally try to persuade you to feel obligated to buy a new vehicle every year. like,oh,you're car is a year old allready.uh oh...time to trade in that ole jalopy and get yourself the brand new "such and such". what...they expect everyone to keep buying a new vehicle for 20-30 grand every year and then trade it in the very next year and get 5 grand for it because it has a whopping 20,000 miles on it...? what... the.... hell!?!?! it's like,okay,you HAVE to have this car or you're year old car with 20 thousand on it is gonna break down and go kah-put...so...you'd better hurry up and buy another 20-30 grand car/vehicle....NOW!!!!! Obviously,i feel that this is a big Fat Pile Of B.S marketing and Corporate Greed.

Because it works, actually. Even if you are mad at them for that you have to admit that you were affected although it is negatively but still you are affected. It is a marketing strategy. We cannot really blame them for that. If you have a product and you have a lot of competition, you would want to do that, too.

ultimately,the way it has affected me is that i immedietely hit the mute button on the remote the very instant a car or other vehicle commercial appears on the tv screen. they're all a bunch of geedy obnoxious swine as far as i'm concerned. the car,truck or s.u.v should be able to sell itself.there should'nt be a definite need for the greedy corporate sponserships to clog the tv airwaves on an annoyingly constant basis. thank God,i have sirius satellite radio to provide my music,which goes totally interrupted because car commercials arent allowed on sirius satellite radio. HA HAAA!!!.....To Them!!..On That.
