With the average American spending 600 hours annually in their car, choosing which car to buy shouldn’t be taken lightly. Time in your car should be as comfortable and easy as possible, whether it’s with apps to keep the kids occupied, keeping a well-stocked trunk for emergencies, or finding cheap gas prices that will make that 600 hours the friendliest to your wallet.

And for moms, car shopping is becoming easier, too. And rightfully so, as statistics show that women are spending 39% of all money spent on new cars. The design process is incorporating more feedback from women as well. Do you remember your first car? How does it compare to those on the road today?

Join us on our April 14 Twitter Party when we chat all things auto, including the New York International Auto Show. From what cars will be the must sees, to what to wear and essential makeup and snacks, we will cover the show and give out tickets to attend.
