Analyst To The Automakers Trade-In His Corporate Hat To Guide Consumers Toward The Best Deals On Auto Trends with JeffCars.com
As opposed to talking to the automakers, Libby trades in his analyst hat to examine the industry in the role of a consumer advocate. Libby, along with the host Jeff Fortson, will guide listeners toward all of the best deals segment-by-segment. The Detroit car analyst even identifies the one segment that consumers should steer clear of -- until the last two weeks of the year, making sure that they maximize their savings. And for payment sensitive buyers, we will also discuss the pros and cons of leasing from both an industry and a consumer perspective.
