Why Your Kid’s Opinion on Car Buying Should Matter Too

Kids can be the best critics just because they are so honest. I mean, sure, they don’t always understand all the details but sometimes the finest details are the most important. That is why whenever I’ve even considered purchasing a new car, I take my 5-year-old along with me. He points out things I may not notice or even consider and I can put him up to asking all the tough questions if I need to!

You see, your kid’s opinion on which car you buy is important because after all, kids spend a lot of their time in the backseat of the car. They deserve to be comfortable and feel safe. When they do, it makes their car riding experience so much better.  Happy kids mean happy parents too!

Cars.com not only agrees and understands that car buying is important for all involved, but they encourage kids to be involved!

This year at the  Detroit Auto Show, they took a  fun new spin on car reviews by giving the best backseat drivers of all the chance to review family cars: Kids!


They sent their little car experts onto the Detroit Auto Show floor to get the scoop on the best family cars at the show. They interviewed sales reps, journalists and spokespeople. The reactions of those interviewed were captured and you can watch it in the 2-minute video below. I personally thought it was adorable and funny!

While kids should have a major influence on car buying, it’s ultimately up to the adults to decide what is best.
