How Do Women Find the Car of their Dreams?


After my son wrecked my car, I was hard pressed for transportation. I found the car I wanted online, a 2001 Toyota Camry, at a local dealership. I called the dealership and asked if they still had the car; and, if so, could I come drive it. I made an appointment. When I got there, that sales person had to deal with a personal emergency so he had left. This was relayed to me by another sales person, who was not that keen on splitting his commission with someone else and kept trying to sell me a new car.

Does this sound familiar to you? How do women find the car of their dreams, or at least a car that will fit their lifestyle without having to deal with sales people who wish they were anywhere but there and really want to sell you a car you cannot afford? One answer is AskPatty.com, sponsor of this post, a website where dealerships are vetted for their friendliness and helpfulness to women automobile buyers. If they are, they become an Ask Patty Certified Dealer. You may locate these dealerships on AskPatty's Second Life Page. I think this is a wonderful service for women.

The Ask Patty.com, web site is also a safe place for women to get advice on car maintenance and other car issues. Questions are submitted to Ask Patty via email and usually Patty will send you an answer the same day. There is also a paneled women automotive experts, ranging from NASCAR drivers to garage owners and mechanics.

I hate the car buying experience. So much so, that I tell my husband the car I want and I let him find the best deal. Pathetic I know. But I really can't be bothered to deal with the whole process.

@enthral-I am totally with you. I did not write the entire saga, but it was exactly what millions of women go through each year trying to buy a car.

Haha, that's hilarious. I have never heard of AskPatty.com...

For women, I think they just buy a car that suits their personality, is a reasonable price and that they like. It is a stressful experience to go through, that's for sure, especially when not all women have husbands to turn to, haha.

@jess-I have no trouble finding a car, its just the dealing with the salesmen, and yes they are salesMEN, that do not value my custom.

@ryan-Thanks for stopping by. I am not really a car blogger, though I do love cars, classic cars.
