Dreaming of a new car? Manufacturers are counting on it!
Car lots are designed for you to soak in the "new car smell," and climb behind the wheel to imagine cruising down your life's highways.
The Internet has spawned a new version of "car junkie" and manufacturers are tuned in. Car maker websites offer you the opportunity to explore new models before they hit the showroom floor, design your car from start to finish, and even provide ordering and financing options to complete a purchase from the comfort of your own home―even in your jammies.
These sites provide you with the latest news, investment details, financing and purchasing options, and parts and service information. You can browse through models, participate in message boards for owners or potential buyers, even watch videos of the car of your dreams.
