Great all around!!!!

2019-03-12

I can get credit applications, internet leads, dealer website, and more for a very affordable price.

Pros

I'm a small dealer and I can use the mobile app to quickly scan the VIN number on the vehicle and shoot a few pics to easily upload it to my website and the carsforsale.com listings.

Cons

at first the mobile app and the website were a little glitchy, but its by far better now.

Review for Carsforsale

2019-03-20

Overall the software is easy to use, makes sense for the user, is affordable, offers very good design and personalization when it comes to the web page, has a great mobile ability, but could benefit from the addition of some tools and reporting as mentioned in Cons section of the survey.

Pros

The software is easy to use and affordable.

Cons

Having more of an insight on how the inventory is performing as well as how the website activity is doing would be helpful in decision making.

Rachel Gaspar

Above average software/below average customer support

2019-03-20

The Carsforsale.com platform is the only one I have used so I do not know any comparable platforms. However, I may start looking this year for other platforms as this one does not seem to be scaleable as my business grows. It is very generic. The upside is the website never goes down and has never had a bug in it that required work arounds. It is an average experience.

Pros

The business has ease of adding and deleting inventory as well as many reports that show where business is coming from and what is driving interest in certain types of inventory.

Cons

An item no longer in inventory will reappear on the website because it was available in the update from yesterday.

Easy leads management, a few workflow hiccups

2019-03-12

Carsforsale.com works OK for leads management but leaves something to be desired when it comes to a good workflow.

Pros

Carsforsale.com makes managing leads relatively easy and straightforward.

Cons

When viewing/replying to a new lead, you have to click on View Contact in order to access their credit application, which is hidden down at the bottom of the page.

Low volume

2019-10-22

Overall at the price has kept us on. However the quality of lead and volume are terrible. Our conversion rate is 2%

Pros

Price point is cheap. That is really it other than that the quality isn't there. The leads that do get sent either don't ever reply or are very unable to buy

Cons

Low volume leads Low quality leads Lake of Vehicle history report integration Seem to attract a low quality customer less buying power

review

2019-05-11

Although some of my referrals I was never credited for (Pyramid Motors, Tripoli Auto Sales)

Pros

I appreciate the different feeds to other 3rd party websites (Car Gurus etc.) but I really like the old platform better.

Cons

I would prefer them to get right to the inventory instead of silly stories about your customer service and "we can finance anybody" slogans.
