About A Girls Guide to Cars, the Best Car Site for Women

Woman And Vw Bug

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 created to be the best car site for women, bringing together a community of writers, influencers, friends and women who buy, care for, and live their lives in and around their cars: her car, the family car, her teen’s car and often the cars of friends or family. We are 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.

These unbiased, honest and personal stories of cars and our lives in them will empower you to be a smarter and happier  car owner.

Scotty Reiss

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 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.

A writer, editor and journalist, Scotty began and has written for the New York TimesForbesPureWowParents, Good HousekeepingCosmopolitan and Adweek, among others. She is the co-author of Stew Leonard, My Storya biography of the founder of the iconic grocery company Stew Leonard’s. In addition to her writing, Scotty produced the American Express Publishing Luxury Summit, PRWeek magazine’s annual conference and a series of Luxury Marketing Council events.

Scotty also serves as a World Car Awards juror and Vice Chair; is a member of the board of the International Motor Press Association and  formerly served on the board of Women in Automotive.

Scotty, who owns an Infiniti QX50, a VW Tiguan and a Hyundai Veloster, rarely gets to drive any of them. She lives in Texas with her husband, daughters and dog.
