    Customers are "spoiled for choice" when buying a new car.

    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    ▪ (chiefly Brit) Customers are spoiled for choice [=customers have a lot of choices] when buying a new car.

    Does this sentence imply that the volume of choices is confusing to customers?

    No, it means that the customers have so much choice that they are being overindulged (spoiled).
