Shopping for a car is exciting, but understanding all the options can be intimidating. Finding the right type of car for your needs is just the beginning. Then come the decisions about paint and interior colors, wheels, etc. And now that cars are becoming computers on wheels — the “ultimate mobile devices” — technological options will soon mean even more decisions.
Although some of these choices are not critical, some options can really make or break how satisfied you are with your new car purchase. Connected cars can enhance the driving experience with personally-tailored music preferences or cabin temperature, and make our busy lives easier by opening garage doors, controlling your home’s lighting and appliances, or arming home security systems — automatically.
