Fans to Pick Their Favorite Vehicle in Cars.com's Shoppers' Choice Award


CHICAGO - Cars.com, the premier online resource for buying and selling new and used cars, today announced that voting has opened for its Shoppers' Choice Award, an honor bestowed to the make/model that receives the most votes in the site's annual popularity poll.  Cars.com determined the ten finalists for the award by looking at shoppers' actions on the site that indicated interest in new vehicles, including searching for vehicles, sending inquiries to dealers on availability and most importantly, filling out a positive consumer review. The winner will be determined by votes from Cars.com's Facebook fans.

"While the advice of experts is a key part of the car buying experience, our research shows that car shoppers place a high value on the opinions of other shoppers," said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com editor-in-chief. "This award is one more way that we can help car shoppers make confident decisions."

Shoppers' Choice finalists (in alphabetical order):

* Audi Q5
* Dodge Challenger
* GMC Terrain
* Honda Accord
* Honda Pilot
* Kia Soul
* Ram 1500
* Subaru Outback
* Toyota Highlander
* Toyota Sienna

Voting for the award began on Nov. 1 and runs through Nov. 30, and visitors to Cars.com's Facebook page can vote for their favorite finalist there. The winning vehicle will be announced along with the Cars.com editors' awards at their fourth annual awards night on Tuesday, Jan. 10, in Detroit.
