Tommy needs a car

The summer is just around the corner. You and your spouse don’t want to continue driving your son, Tommy (age 18), and his two younger sisters around town to their various activities. Since Tommy has a driver’s license and drives responsibly, the two of you will sit down together on Sunday evening and plan your search for a reliable, safe and economical used car.

Map out the decision making process in your culture: key factors, information gathering, information analysis, steps and their sequence, schedule, budget, possible involvement of Tommy.
