SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 6, 2011 — GetAuto.com is enhancing its popular automotive consumer portal with Carfax Vehicle History Reports. Online shoppers will find free Carfax Reports linked to vehicles listed by Carfax-subscribing dealers. Including a Carfax Report helps dealer inventory stand out from the competition and greatly influences an online shopper’s dealer choice.
‘Our partnership with Carfax is in line with our overall strategy to provide a full set of services and tools for the visitors to our web site,’ said Owen Griffin, general manager of GetAuto.com. ‘Carfax Reports help shoppers make better decisions and help attract more customers to the dealers we support.’
Once a dealer purchases a Carfax Report, GetAuto.com makes it readily-available directly from the listing on both the vehicle search results and details pages. Vehicle history highlights from Carfax also appear on these pages, giving potential buyers a brief overview of important details such as ownership history and reported accidents. With a single mouse click, the full Carfax Report can be viewed for free.
‘Buyers today expect to find Carfax Reports available wherever they shop,’ said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax. ‘Providing this information up front is proven to build buyer confidence and help cars sell faster.
