Pros: They keep us busy and the leads have great information

Cons:

Cars Social 2.0 has to be the most inept choice for a dealership
Reviewed by an Internet Director April 9th
Recommended: NO
✅ Verified Rating

Pros: none

Cons: Why would a dealer ever PAY a 3rd party vendor to take a customer from the dealership to send it to a 3rd party? More and more 3rd party vendors are coming up with the obsurd programs where a dealers advertising dollars are being utilized to not push consumers to their own website, but rather to push consumers to 3rd party websites. Its not bad enough that these 3rd party vendors are driving SEM costs through the roof by bidding against dealers in their markets AND redirecting organic traffic by optimizing a dealers inventory to pull organic traffic away from dealer websites, but now we get to pay these same companies to drive our hard fought social traffic to them as well. All dealers need to say NO to all these programs as they are not helping the dealers, only the vendors.

Priced well and they do a good job for us.

They are vague for a reason. Dig into the nuances and you will find that your inventory sends consumers to cars.com to review your inventory there.
