AskPatty.com educates buyers, trains dealers beyond transmission talk

Excerpt:

Women flat-out decide or in some way influence most of the car and truck purchases in the United States -- more than 80%, according to some estimates.

But talk to women candidly about their auto-buying experience, and you'll find that many aren't thrilled with the experience in showrooms. Auto salesmen are still from Mars, and female car buyers are still from Venus, it seems.

Continues to page eight quoting Rebecca Maddox, CEO of www.maddoxsmye.com, our training partner on : Auto Sellers Put to the Test.
