Sell more cars to women with help from Answers Readers' Car Questions

As women start to exercise their considerable power in the car-buying and maintenance arena, more women-oriented auto Web sites are popping up to serve them. Here's a new one we like: Billed as "a safe place for women to get advice on car purchases, maintenance and other automotive related topics," users can -- literally -- ask Patty questions through an interactive blog. Responses typically come the same day, and selected questions will be addressed by a panel of women automotive experts for the benefit of all the readers.

There are lots of other neat features on the site, including a round-up of automotive news and relevant articles from different news sources. It also has the more typical dealer connections, reviews by regular folks, and advice. It's all laid out nicely and is easy on the eyes. The driving force behind AskPatty is Jody DeVere, currently the President of the Woman's Automotive Association International, ( the premier women?s organization for women automotive professionals. But what most stands out on AskPatty is the impressive list of women on its advisory board, including racer Deborah Renshaw and a host of female automotive industry and business veterans.
