A REPUTATION CHANGING WITH THE TIMES: The used car business has long been mired in a collective “mixed perception” as to trustworthiness and honesty. Let’s face it, when you buy a used car, you’re buying a car someone else was likely tired of driving it for whatever reason. Second only to members of congress, the car sales profession is saddled with just about the lowest approval rate a profession can receive. With the advent of “Certified Pre-Owned”, CarFax, and the vast amount of research available online, consumers are far more able to protect themselves against the agents of dishonesty within the auto industry than they were 25 years ago.
Fortunately, dishonesty is easily punished with a bad review and in 2017, the weight of bad reviews can crush any dealership with a bent for shadiness. In this instance, digital technology has evolved to protect the consumer and if used correctly, can greatly aid the used car dealer in becoming more transparent, prominent, and successful in their various DMAs. Technology needs to be embraced and implemented properly for used car dealers to rise above their competition and dissolve the perceptions of impropriety that pervade the profession. We’re here to provide the necessary tools, tips and technologies to make the trade...terrific!
