Redwood City, CA, September 24, 2009 – Dealix, a division of Cobalt and an industry leader in automotive sales leads for dealers, dealer groups, and manufacturers, today introduced the Certified Pre-Owned Center on UsedCars.com. The UsedCars.com Certified Pre-Owned Center serves as a resource for consumers to learn about the value of certified pre-owned (CPO) programs and to get detailed information on manufacturers’ authorization programs. This education is valuable to shoppers; industry research shows that most buyers who ultimately choose a certified vehicle first learn about the option through automotive websites.1 Resources in the UsedCars.com Certified Pre-Owned Center include: · Specific descriptions of the components of the respective certified pre-owned programs provided by the manufacturers, including detailed inspection point lists. · Special CPO “badges” on vehicles within the UsedCars.com listings that designate which vehicles have acquired CPO status from their manufacturers. · Links from individual CPO vehicle listings directly to the description of the manufacturer’s program. · A CPO inventory only search tool that makes it easy for consumers to find the exact certified pre-owned vehicle they are looking for, as well as CPO vehicles featured in general search results. “Shoppers turn to UsedCars.com as a site that helps them find the right car at the right price,” said Anna Zornosa, general manager of Dealix. “Certified pre-owned programs present an important option for today’s buyers and an important addition to the UsedCars.com site.” Car buyers can access the UsedCars.com Certified Pre-Owned Center at www.usedcars.com.
