When I went to the Chicago Auto Show media day I was somewhat surprised at how much I was into the cars. Don't get me wrong, I love cars, especially the pretty colors & all the fancy tech gadgets but being on-site with SheBuysCars was majorly eye opening. You can check out a lot of what we got into via the hashtags #HyundaiCAS and #GenesisCAS. Unfortunately I got sick so I had to curtail my other plans to visit the auto show but you can check out what I did share via my hastag #CurvatudeCAS.
Scotty Reiss, co-founder of SheBuysCars expanded & blew my mind with the wealth of knowledge she has about the auto industry. Hearing her talk about the ways that we women have influenced the industry was especially interesting.
Women apparently influence the purchase of 85% of all cars. That's a lot of influence & buying power & automakers have definitely taken note, especially in the way that they now build and equip vehicles like minivans.
And while I would not be in the market for a family vehicle since my kid is grown & gone off living her own life, I do have very specific needs in a vehicle.
