Wikimotive Publishes Information on the Way Consumers Now Purchase Cars reports more than 95 percent of consumers take a new car home on their first visit to a dealership. Many wonder how they are able to do so, as a vehicle is a major purchase. One likely reason why so many choose to go this route is they have done their research before ever leaving home. The Internet provides a wealth of information on new and used cars and can easily help a consumer narrow down the available options and select a dealership. For this reason, all car dealers must ensure their website and physical location can easily be found when the time comes for an individual to buy a new car.
