3. Help Buying and Maintaining Your Car is a New York based website that educates women about all things automotive, with a staff of female automotive experts who write articles and answer questions on repair, maintenance and car buying. They certify dealerships as female-friendly after they have passed a course on how to communicate with women.

49% of the nation's dealerships do not have even one female salesperson, according to a survey by the National Auto Dealers Association.

Says one rep that has taken the course, "Sometimes the women don't feel comfortable. This trains us on how to communicate a lot better. I give them a lot more attention than I would before."
