Welcome to the Completely Rebuilt DrivingSales Community!

I’m pumped to introduce the all new DrivingSales Community site.

Our team invested a ton of time listening to you as community members while, researching, building and testing to launch the new DrivingSales community platform. After nearly two years of design and development work, I couldn’t be more excited to have it up and running.

It’s crazy to think that in 2003 this site started as a brain child from my NADA Academy class. Now it is the world’s largest online network dedicated to dealership and automotive retail professionals.  Its pretty cool to look back and see the growth, but even better to see that the notion of connecting dealerships so we could collaborate and help each other solve issues that we all face is so meaningful to so many.

Thank you all for continuing to share your ideas, your successes, and to pitch in and help answer other’s questions and challenges. Your drive to create something better than each of us has built a community much better than all of us.  It truly is the top source for real-world dealer insights and its killer to see.

We’ve rebuilt the new community from the ground up, with a mobile first perspective.  We have made huge improvements with tons of feedback to the vendor rating platform and your ability to network with one another.  We hope you like the progress this platform represents and we would love to hear your feedback about it.  Feel free to email us at: and comment on this blog.  Be sure to rate your vendors, invite your friends and share the community on facebook and twitter.

I cant wait to see what the next 13 years will bring the DrivingSales community!
