Auto shows can always be fun to visit for any car enthusiast, but it seems as though people heading to the Los Angeles Auto Show are looking to make a purchase rather than window shop.
According to the Los Angeles Times, a number of consumers are finally deciding it's time to take the plunge with a new car after putting it off during the weak economy. As a result, the Los Angeles Auto Show is drawing in massive crowds who want a first look at what the vehicle industry has to offer them in 2012, and insiders are taking note.
"A lot of people who are at the displays today are serious buyers," a Kia spokeswoman told the news provider. "They're asking the core questions, not just 'how fast does this car go'-type of questions. Hands down, our sales are increasing exponentially."
Of course, those who are looking to put off their car purchases a bit longer can keep the vehicles they have with a little extra TLC. Conducting routine auto maintenance such as a radiator flush and fill and tire alignment can help extend the lifespan of a vehicle.
