SANDY -- Utah car dealers have weathered the recession, and now folks are coming out to the Utah International Auto Expo to see what they have to offer.

The event continues through Monday at the South Towne Exposition Center, and people have come to see the newest makes and models.

Steve Mensig travels from Evanston, Wyoming to Sandy each year for the auto show with his family in tow.

“I’m a gear head, and I like seeing the new the stuff come out, so I drag them along,” he said.

Fuel efficiency is a concern for many, and Leonard Dejong had his eye on cars like the Chevy Spark.

“Gas mileage is important, and I’d like to really save a lot of money,” he said.

Deedee Taft said Increased connectivity is another feature prominent at the show.

“More and more smart phone integration,” she said. “Applications that really just allow you to do anything in your car... It’s amazing what you can do in your cars today.”
