Direct and indirect effects on households’ intentions to replace the old car
Marell, Agneta, Davidsson, Per, Gärling, Tommy, & Laitila, Thomas (2004) Direct and indirect effects on households’ intentions to replace the old car. Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services, 11(1), pp. 1-8.
With the purpose of testing the hypothesis that households’ intentions to replace their old car have a direct negative relationship to its perceived quality (‘current level’) and a direct positive relationship to their aspirations for a new car (‘aspiration level’), a rotating panel of car owners were interviewed every fourth month during 2 years. In this data set the hypothesis received support. In addition the results showed that the age of the car, the total number of miles driven, and the number of anticipated repairs affected the current level, whereas marital status, the number of children, consumer confidence, and environmental concern affected the aspiration level.
