Is there an interesting car-buying trend you've noticed in the last few years?

Whether this trend affects buyers, carmakers, or regulators, I'd like to know what you've observed.

“The most pronounced car-buying trend I’ve seen in the last few years is doing your car shopping from home. To me, this always seemed counterintuitive—how can you spend $20,000 without seeing the vehicle or driving it? Call me old school, but I still stick by this observation.
However, the trend of doing all your shopping from home—from groceries to clothes and now to cars—seems likely to continue.
The good news is that many companies that sell vehicles online offer money-back guarantees, warranties, and other perks similar to what you’d get at a dealership. Still, you’ll want to make sure you do your homework before using one of these companies. “
