CENTREVILLE, Va. (March 15, 2021) – CARFAX is honoring an exclusive group of dealers rated highly by verified customers in its second annual Top-Rated Dealer Program. The 2020 CARFAX Top-Rated Dealers received an average of 4.6 stars out of a possible five stars.   

“CARFAX has more than 2.2 million verified customer ratings and reviews for dealerships around the country,” said Bill Eager, CARFAX Vice President of Dealer Business. “The Top-Rated Dealer program recognizes the best of the best for exceptional service and customer care.”

“This is our second year being recognized as a CARFAX Top-Rated Dealer,” said Ralph Mahalak Jr., co-owner of the Low Payment Kings’ Mahalak Auto Group in Florida, Michigan, and Ohio. “We saw a tremendous response from our customers when we won last year.
