Car Purchasing Process - US - June 2018
"The household vehicle is typically the second most expensive purchase consumers make besides a home, and for American consumers it is often a necessary purchase. Consumers have a plethora of options available and must navigate those options to find the best vehicle for their budget and lifestyle.

Brands and dealerships must engage with consumers digitally and locally with the pertinent information to best retain consumer attention in today’s high paced environment."
