A visit with AskPatty.com

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Oct 13th, 2010 5:03pm

Women who express an interest in cars – as drivers and consumers – are often belittled or patronized in public spaces. Thus many women who participate on interactive automotive websites do so as observers rather than contributors. As one of the respondents to my study remarked, “a lot of females don’t speak out as much nor do they post as much because there’s always a fear of being made fun of.” ...

How to Organize Your Car Trunk

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Sep 30th, 2010 7:35pm

Next, it's time to get rid of all that "junk in your trunk." Many people unwittingly carry the weight of an extra person in the back of their vehicle, so be brutal: Remove everything you don't use frequently or need in an emergency. Items such as car cleaners or foldable chairs, for example, should be stored elsewhere. Seasonal items, like traction aids for the mud or snow, should be stored in the car only when the season demands ...

Women-Focused Advertising -- Where is It? At Dealer Communications

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Aug 25th, 2010 7:04pm

As dealers and manufactures think about advertising and marketing, do they consider that women are the target?  I honestly don’t think so.  Every commercial for a dealership seems to be shouting about a sale or event.  This does not catch a woman’s attention -- I can assure you of that.  Digital ads show pictures of cars with lease or APR points.  This too, does not work for women.  ...
