We are a community, and we are powerful.
That’s because women buy or influence the purchase of 85% of all cars. Without us, the auto industry would not thrive.
Realizing this, A Girls Guide to Cars was born as a community of writers, influencers, friends and women who buy, care for, and live their lives in and around their cars: their own car, the family car, and often the cars of family members. A Girls Guide to Cars is dedicated to sharing car purchase information, experiences and stories, told from personal points of view and focusing on what is important in a fun, smart, advice-from-your-best-friend way.
A Girls Guide to Cars brings together the insights and views of writers and reviewers who share their unbiased, honest and personal narratives about cars and their lives in cars.
Our Mission: To empower women to be smarter, happier car owners
Women think about cars differently than men. Why should we talk about them, read about them and evaluate them the same way men do? A Girls Guide to Cars brings a natural and engaged conversation about cars to you, pairing it with empowering information, tactics and strategies to ensure you make a smart and comfortable decision. We also empower the auto industry to develop a closer, more meaningful relationship with their female customers.
People ask how she got into the auto business, but actually, the auto business found her. Never a car enthusiast or fanatic, she co-founded SheBuysCars in 2013 and realized that the car world, which seemed so closed off to women, was a wonderful new place for a girl to blossom. Five years later, A Girls Guide to Cars refocused that mission with a fun, fresh and informative new appeal.
