I’m thrilled to announce that Cars.com has won two coveted DrivingSales Dealer Satisfaction Awards! Cars.com is a Top Rated company for both the New Car Leads and Used Car Advertising categories – an acknowledgment that dealerships believe we are a preferred growth partner for both new and used vehicles.

Both of these awards validate our commitment to our partners as well as our commitment to help move the automotive industry forward by creating connections that fuel growth across the 4Ps of Automotive Marketing™: product, price, place, and person.

According to DrivingSales, the Dealer Satisfaction Awards measure dealer satisfaction with vendor products and services, and are based on cumulative ratings tallied and verified over the calendar year (January–December) via DrivingSales.com Vendor Ratings.

DrivingSales Vendor Ratings is the industry’s only neutral, comprehensive vendor rating forum featuring real-time peer reviews and honest competitor comparisons, and provides dealerships with important information from actual customers who have hands-on experience using vendor products/solutions in their stores.

Each rating is verified as coming from an actual dealership employee.

Throughout 2017, Cars.com worked hard to earn the trust and loyalty of our dealership customers with a constant flow of new features such as pricing tools, badging, and a redefined search experience — and innovative solutions such as Salesperson Connect™, which helps connect dealership salespeople directly to in-market shoppers before they visit the lot. Salesperson Connect is just one of example of our innovations in 2017 that not only enhances the car shopper experience, but also connects you to Cars.com’s quality audience.

Winning a Dealer Satisfaction Award affirms that we’re on the right path to becoming a stronger growth partner to you. We are humbled, excited, and motivated to work even harder for our dealership customers!
