Using carspecs.com data, AUTONET.CA’s showroom will allow new car customers to research specifications and pricing on all new cars sold in Canada and they’ll use AUTONET.CA’s dealer affiliations to locate the nearest dealer to negotiate and complete the sale.
“We are pleased to provide our data to AUTONET.CA and its customers,” said David Mingle, chief executive officer of carspecs.com. “AUTONET.CA has built its reputation by offering services that range from presale research to helping find proper finance, insurance and service. We believe that our data is a great addition to AUTONET.CA’s current line-up.”
“Our goal is to make it easier and faster to navigate the Internet and make intelligent decisions based on the knowledge acquired. By joining the services of AUTONET.CA with the comprehensive data of carspecs.com, Canadian customers can be confident that our site is the best place to visit for information on researching and buying a car,” said Ronald Frank, general manager of AUTONET.CA.
While new car customers can search AUTONET.CA’s database of options and prices, used car buyers can search for vehicles available through participating dealers or private sellers. Those who want to browse the nearest lot can use AUTONET.CA’s complete dealer locator.
