Definitely in the case of this car purchase. Actually, my 2 previous new car purchases were a complete deferral to the fact that I would need to haul drums - a Mazda mini-truck, and Toyota T-100 (with full size bed.)
This time around, cargo and loading deck height remained prime considerations, but I also knew that I needed the capability to carry multiple passengers, and improved mileage was a must. So, another truck just would not do.
If I didn't need to move drums, I wouild have had a lot of other choices, and undoubtedly sought a car that's more fun to drive.
