RMS Automotive Partners with Carfax

RMS Automotive Partners with Carfax Featured

RMS Automotive has partnered with Carfax to enhance the digital buying experience using key vehicle history details.
Dealers with a Carfax Advantage account now can use Carfax  information when searching for inventory through manufacturers' digital sales platforms powered by RMS Automotive.
BMW Financial Services NA is the first commercial consignor to incorporate the Carfax vehicle history search function into its digital marketplace. Dealers searching for pre-auction inventory found on BMWGroupDirect.com can filter results by four key Carfax data points – reported accidents, number of owners, vehicle use and service records – prior to purchasing.
RMS Automotive will offer the Carfax vehicle history search capability to additional manufacturers in 2018.

  • Car Shopping Site Turns 20

    Autotrader, the first national online automobile-shopping site, is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
    “Autotrader invented online car shopping and constantly strives to re-imagine the category,” said Brian Geitner, president of Cox Automotive Media Solutions. “The transformation of our brand and the car shopping experience go hand-in-hand, and we’ll continue to adapt and enhance Autotrader as consumer behaviors and appetites change.”
    Autotrader’s beginning coincides with the rise of the Internet era and its impact on how consumers received information. Paper-based vehicle listings were steadily eclipsed by a more convenient and up-to-date online inventory experience for both the buyer and the seller. Video and editorial content, along with user-generated reviews and the introduction of Autotrader’s mobile app soon followed, helping better educate consumers looking to find and buy their next car.
    “We’ve always tried to stay ahead of the curve,” said Chuck Nasiadka, director of pre-owned operations, Baglier Automotive, Butler, Penn. “We went online with Autotrader using a laptop and dial up service somewhere between 2000 and 2001. I’ve placed my faith in the fact they were there first, they have the most knowledge in the space and shoppers still mention Autotrader the most.”
