But now, there’s a quick and fun way to get through the initial research. Start-up Car-ED is a free lifestyle questionnaire designed to identify that short list of vehicles that best connect with the shopper.

“After decades working for automobile manufacturers, we decided there had to be a better way for people who don’t spend all day thinking about cars to find a simple list of vehicles that best connect to their behaviors,” Kevin Joostema, Car-ED co-founder said. “Our goal is to offer a fun, easy service to anyone asking the question that comes up so often in our line of work: ‘What car should I buy?’”

Aston Martin makes the amazing Rapide sedan even more badass

  Aston Martin makes the amazing Rapide sedan even more badass Mercedes has AMG. BMW has M. They’re special brands within brands that create high-performance versions of standard cars — and these days, among aficionados at least, the names carry nearly as much significance as the parent brands.

“Car shopping sites assume that everyone starts by knowing basic information about what kind of car is right for them, but we think the conversation should start one step sooner,” said Joostema. “There are too many new options for people to keep up with, so they usually gravitate to what they know.”

“But the truth is, the right car for you might come from a company you’ve never considered before. The system might know you better than you know yourself,” added Car-ED co-founder Andres Valbuena said. “If you keep an open mind about makes and models, you may be surprised at how close the suggestions match you.”

Prior to co-founding Car-ED, both Joostema and Valbuena were industry executives with various mainstream auto companies, including General Motors, Honda and Volkswagen, among others.
