ATLANTA--July 15, 2013: The average consumer spends more than 20 hours and overpays roughly $3,500 when purchasing a car due to antiquated dealer sales practices. While other industries have embraced technological advancements to increase transparency, speed and customer control, the automotive dealer industry relies heavily on closed-door brick and mortar dealerships to generate profits at the expense of consumers' time and pocketbooks.

In this infographic, Carvana sets out to inform consumers of true car costs without cumbersome finance and insurance contracts, aftermarket add-on's and unnecessary dealer overhead fees.
