What Are the Best SUVs for Millennials in Leominster?
Common knowledge says that millennials don't buy cars, or don't buy them as much as their parents did. (If you were born between 1983 and 1999, YOU are a millennial.) Millennials are graduating from college with a lot of student debt, and are getting married and having kids later in life. In theory, these factors are keeping millennials from buying cars.
There's also the modern phenomenon of car services like Uber and Car2Go that millennials use instead of owning a car. In many cases, you might ask: Why would millennials even need a car, much less an SUV?
Well, it turns out that millennials are buying cars, and they're buying larger SUVs for those kids that they apparently are having, albeit later than Gen-Xers and baby boomers did.
The more you look at it, the more you see that millennials are having kids and buying houses in the suburbs so their children have a nice place to grow up and go to school (a lot like the generations before them).
This means that they need larger cars to fit their kids' strollers, take their sons and daughters to the park, and later, to get them and their gear to soccer practice and music rehearsals.
One source even claims that almost 80% of millennials already own cars, and of those who don't own a car, 75% want to own one. As millennials pass into their mid-thirties and forties, this trend will only continue.
That's one reason that many car dealers like Baker Cadillac have seen an increase in their sales of midsize and larger SUVs.
