Search by exact string of words

Search by exact string of words

I have a clients site that has thousands of products. The client would like the search results to show only the exact combination of words. For example if they currently search for RED CAR then they'll get every single product that has the word RED or CAR. They want instead for it to always bring back only the Exact phrase RED CAR. We have noticed by putting quotes around "RED CAR" that it will perform the way they want but they can't expect all users to know how to do that. Is there something that I can change in the code that will make it always reveal only the exact phrase mach when searched?
