Q: Can you sit inside the vehicles?

A: Almost every manufacturer’s display welcomes show-goers to sit inside the vehicles, pop the hood and kick the tires; however no one is allowed to sit in the classic, pre-production or exotic vehicles without express permission from the owner.

Q: Will the representatives be aggressively trying to sell me their cars?

A: The Cleveland Auto Show is a non-selling show. This means that no sales are allowed to be made on the floor and no one will pressure you into buying anything. It is a show for you, the consumer, to inspect all angles of the vehicles and have a pressure-free environment in which to do it. The product specialists at each manufacturer booth will be able to answer any questions you may have about the vehicles.

Q: Will the manufacturers give out rebates on vehicles?

A: It varies by manufacturer. Check with the representatives at each display!

Q: Can I bring an item to be autographed by a celebrity?

A: Unless otherwise disclosed, you may bring an item to be autographed.  Autograph sessions are scheduled at specific times. One autograph per person. All autographs are first come first served, and no guarantee of an autograph is given. Arrive early for the best opportunity!

Q: Where can I buy tickets?

A: You can buy tickets online by clicking TICKETS above, or by visiting the box office during regular show hours. Automotive class groups should visit our Career Day page, as alternate pricing is not available at the box office.
