I asked Brian Moody, at AutoTrader, if attendance at this year's auto shows is back to pre-pandemic levels. Moody: "I think people are tired at looking at stuff online. You can only see so much by looking at pictures, you can't get scope or scale. You can't get textures or the feel of the fabric. So having these auto shows I think is important not just for shoppers, but just for people getting out and doing something fun, but in addition to that shoppers of course. And that is what people were saying. I went to an auto show in Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Auto Show and also one in Salt Lake City. And it was the same thing. People wanted to get in and press the buttons and flip the switches and see can my 6-foot 2 teen fit in the back seat or not. If I put my child seat in the back seat, is my kid going to kick my seat the whole way on a trip. Well those are things you need to go and do in person not just look at pictures online.” For all the information you want just check out CarPro.com. With today’s Auto News, I’m Laura Reynolds.
