New York City Has a Proud Automotive Heritage

Dating as far back as 1900, the first automobile show in North America was held in New York City. It still is, in fact. The New York International Auto Show has become the largest attended of its kind. The event, known for introducing innovative new ideas and products to the world, has remained an institution throughout decades of growth and struggle in the United States. People from many different walks of lives and industries come together at the show for the love of automobiles.

Even if they are not into cars, your customers want to keep their vehicle in tip-top shape. Streamlining communications and showing them a video of the repairs their car needs shows customers your dealership is trustworthy, dependable and professional.
