Discussion: Why aren't millennials buying cars?

We discussed the issue Jan. 28, 2014, with Chris Travell, vice president of strategic consulting at Maritz Research, Peter Cheney, senior Globe Drive columnist, and Derek Kreindler, managing editor of The Truth About Cars, a blog that examines all facets of the auto industry, from design and manufacturing to retail and finance. Derek is a pioneer reporting on the lack of car ownership among Generation Y, having covered this beat since 2012.
