Cars.com Signs Pact with GO Network Automotive Center

Chicago-based automotive Web site Cars.com signed a deal with Infoseek, home of the GO Network, to become the exclusive provider for used vehicle listings on GO Autos, a new automotive center.

Visitors to the GO Network can now search a database of hundreds of thousands of used car listings as well as find used cars in their local area by clicking on the direct link to the cars.com Web site. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

Mitch Golub, general manager of cars.com, said: "With GO Network we are building a leading Internet destination that will benefit used car shoppers and our car dealer advertisers."

GO Network was launched in January 1999 by Infoseek in partnership with The Walt Disney Company. Cars.com, affiliated with more than 130 local newspapers, is a division of the online newspaper consortium Classified Ventures.
