The automotive buyer intelligence firm Autolist.com released its second quarter 2016 most affordable areas analysis and ranked Wilson County the No. 6 most affordable place to buy a car in Tennessee.

Autolist.com’s study found there were statistically significant differences in list prices at the state, county and even the city level across both Tennessee and the U.S. at large.
