CarGurus has announced its inaugural list of CarGurus Canada Top Rated Dealers. The awards will be presented to a designated group of car dealerships that have received the highest average ratings from shoppers who have submitted dealership reviews on the CarGurus platform. CarGurus uses shoppers' dealership ratings as well as comprehensive valuation analytics to help shoppers search their local marketplace and find great car deals from top-rated dealers.
Sam Zales, President of Dealer Operations said: "CarGurus is proud to recognize Canadian dealerships who are prioritizing exceptional customer service and earning excellent ratings from shoppers. The Top Rated Dealer Awards celebrate the best of the best and we're excited to launch this program in Canada."
Dealer ratings and reviews submitted by shoppers, are visible to the public on the site, and are factored in the algorithm that CarGurus uses to rank search results for shoppers. According to a recent CarGurus poll, nearly 80 percent of shoppers say they will not buy a car from a dealership without first seeking out reviews of that dealer from other shoppers.
The Top Rated Dealer program helps dealers leverage CarGurus' trusted and verified consumer reviews and provide their customers with independent validation that they are getting a good deal from a great dealer.
CarGurus also helps dealerships connect with customers through programs that provide additional brand exposure and drive customer leads with high ROI. More than 22,000 car dealerships in the U.S. currently partner with CarGurus on such programs.
