After years of hand-wringing on the part of automakers and dealers, the results are finally in: Millennials -- wait for it -- also like to buy new automobiles.
The generation of 75 million-plus born between the early 1980s and late 1990s had sent shivers through the auto industry in recent years with what seemed to be a demonstrable lack of interest in buying cars. That apparent departure from previous generations had some executives wondering if the entire auto ownership model would have to be scrapped.
But fear not: It turns out they just didn't have any money.
Once the economy improved and millennials were able to land jobs and boost their credit ratings -- and maybe move out of their parents' basements -- they started heading to auto dealerships looking for deals.
Like that wise icon from an earlier generation, Alfred E. Neuman, said: "What? Me Worry?"
