“Above average software/below average customer support”

OverallThe Carsforsale.com platform is the only one I have used so I do not know any comparable platforms. However, I may start looking this year for other platforms as this one does not seem to be scaleable as my business grows. It is very generic. The upside is the website never goes down and has never had a bug in it that required work arounds. It is an average experience.
ProsThe software is user friendly for both the customer and the business. The customer can easily view product and contact the business. The business has ease of adding and deleting inventory as well as many reports that show where business is coming from and what is driving interest in certain types of inventory.
ConsThe program language is not compatible with other software in the industry. Automatic updates are often 2-3 days behind real time. An item no longer in inventory will reappear on the website because it was available in the update from yesterday. It does require monitoring daily to ensure accuracy. Also, customer support lacks follow through. There is no one person dedicated to your account that you work with. It is whomever answers the phone and that can be time consuming to bring the new person up to speed on the issue that has been already discussed with someone else. Finally, updates to the platform itself are not easy. They are a basic layout and changes to it are limited and not always done correctly.

“good”

Overallvery nice and easy website for our customers, love the Facebook market place option......Have been approached by other web providers, but have chosen to stay with Carsforsale
Prosseems to be very user friendly, provides a lot of infomation from the vin number breakdown, like the fact we can attach the carfax report. The site also let us post many pictures as well as videos. The ability to print FTC forms and taylor them accordingly is a plus.
Cons The paperwork feature is not as accurate as other paperwork provided by our dealer servicer that we pay an additional fee for. It leaves out most of the customer information needed on the power of attorney, it seems as though these are just generic forms placed on the website as an after thought. when added customers information it is not printed properly on the forms, I do not use this because of the lack of details on customer information. I do use the Odometer statement, but I have to type in all of the customer information separately (very time consuming)

“The best option for Car Dealers!!”

OverallBeing with carsforsale is a no brainer. It is cost effective and very valuable to our dealership. There is no other program that does everything they do for the price. I recommend them to all of our dealer friends!
ProsThe ease of use and the customer service are the very best things about carsforsale. Customer service always exceeds my expectations no matter when I reach out. They go above and beyond always! They offer more bang for the buck too! The new Facebook marketplace tool sets them well above the competition and it is included in the fee we already pay. It is super easy to use and navigate.
ConsOther programs allow us to scan in a drivers license when a customer comes in. This would be a very handy tool. The only other thing that needs improvement is the way leads alerts are generated. We used to get emails every time we had a lead and for some reason that has gone away. I may not notice I have a new lead for hours.

“Interactive website knowledge ”

OverallThe overall ability to track customers to the right sales associate is something that has been helpful and has allowed us to play on an even field of competition. The system works if you understand how it works and i feel that most have just now begin to utilize the tools that it has to offer.
ProsThe design and easy access is relatively useful. The ability to access multiple customer request and activities are available to all admin. and the ability to track activity within the system is helpful for planning the next step of the sales process.
ConsI would like to see automated daily tasks for each individual sales associate. The ability to focus on those leads that are 7 days or less older and the tracking of these leads in a Que would maximize efforts for targeted sales attempts and increase sales production along with customer experience. If this option is already available then more one on one coachings with the sales team should be priority by your company to implement those options and further our knowledge of how we can utilize the site to our fullest efforts.

“Easy to use!”

OverallCustomer service is top notch. Anytime we have had a problem or just needed a question answered, it was done 100% to my satisfaction. All they offer at no extra charge is beyond compare.
ProsAs the title states, ease of use. Very easy to post your cars to your website. The whole set up is pretty much self explanatory. Scan a VIN, take a few pictures ( The more the merrier) and upload! Most of it is done for you through the vin! So simple.. I put in price, colors and cloth or leather interior. everything else is already there, I DO recommend double checking all they prepopulate,just to be safe. Did I mention, how easy this is??!!
ConsMobile app camera is not very good. Sometimes I Lose cars on the dealer site (They are not on dealer site, but they are visible to the public) Kinda embarrassing when I have a customer on the line. Camera needs to be upgraded, it is great on overcast days, but when it is sunny out, the end picture is way to dark. IF I could use my phones camera I could fix it before taking the picture in most cases

“Review for Carsforsale”

OverallOverall the software is easy to use, makes sense for the user, is affordable, offers very good design and personalization when it comes to the web page, has a great mobile ability, but could benefit from the addition of some tools and reporting as mentioned in Cons section of the survey.
ProsThe software is easy to use and affordable.
ConsI think the software would benefit from craigslist posting abilities. I also think the CRM portion of the software would benefit from adding in better ways to manage leads, via lead source tracking, making more options to help organize leads and mange lead assignments. I feel like the note section of the lead should be more easily readable, not putting it several screens back and having the system allow the user to organize and label leads would be helpful. Also adding more reporting to the system for inventory as well as SEO, and leads would be nice. Having more of an insight on how the inventory is performing as well as how the website activity is doing would be helpful in decision making.

“CarsForSale.com is our primary business partner for success”

ProsWe've been using CarsForSale.com as our used car web host and primary listing site since we opened for business in 2013. We've reviewed many potential providers but we really like the value, customer service and ease of doing business with CarsForSale.com. They have a terrific overall product at a great price while still delivering personalized customer care and customized solutions. We also like their performance and reliability. Special kudos to two people at CarsForSale.com who have always treated us like we are their most important client - Anita and Zion.
ConsThe few things we liked least about using CarsForSale.com software have been updated/changed - for instance, they recently converted us to mobile-friendly responsive and have added more helpful tools like overlays, nicer screen views, reporting and online materials. Right now, there isn't anything we don't like about the software.

“Great all around!!!!”

OverallI have used carsforsale.com for all my online vehicle listing for over 6 years and im very pleased with it. I can get credit applications, internet leads, dealer website, and more for a very affordable price. Since Im a small independent dealer I need affordable. I also love that I can print vehicle buyers guides,advertising items, and more for my inventory.
Pros I'm a small dealer and I can use the mobile app to quickly scan the VIN number on the vehicle and shoot a few pics to easily upload it to my website and the carsforsale.com listings. It also pushes my inventory to third party website listing pages. Also, its by far less expensive than other inventory management software or websites ive used. I've been using for 6 years now and I don't foresee leaving!!!
Consat first the mobile app and the website were a little glitchy, but its by far better now. Theres also lots of tools and forms for dealers to use.

“review”

OverallI've had a wonderful relationship with carsforsale.com. Although some of my referrals I was never credited for (Pyramid Motors, Tripoli Auto Sales)
ProsI appreciate the different feeds to other 3rd party websites (Car Gurus etc.) but I really like the old platform better.
ConsWhen you sell a car and want to mark it "sold" on the website, you have to go through a couple of unnecessary steps to get there. Also the new website designs are very "busy". I would prefer them to get right to the inventory instead of silly stories about your customer service and "we can finance anybody" slogans.

“Best bang for your buck”

OverallBusiness experience has been great. Customer service has been 5 star every time I have had to use them - very impressed with that.
ProsThe Carsforsale site is easy to navigate and use. Its pretty much self-explanatory. Recent additions like the Facebook marketplace module and 1st photo overlays add more functionality with no extra effort required. Its nice that putting in the VIN usually decodes the trim level of the car, and lists relative equipment and options - it helps make my descriptions accurate without having to search through a bunch of other car sites. Some of the other similarly priced competitors don't do that. Website templates and graphics are very well done. There are "slicker" options out there, but they all cost much more. Carsforsale has what I need at a very good price.
Consebay templates could use a refreshing. It would be nice if there was an easier way to search past postings, like an archive. It gets tedious having to put in your entire date range of when searching for a similar car, or one that has returned to your inventory.

“USER FOR OVER 10 YEARS COMBINED”

OverallBusiness problems we are solving with Carsforsale.com would be the ability to have and host a responsive website which includes the online credit application. For a while we struggled with getting a online platform to host our secure credit app.
ProsThe things I like the most about the software, Carsforsale.com, is #1 they are constantly being innovative #2 The value for the money is amazing #3 The new responsive websites are creative, complimentary and the team has the ability to fit the website for your business!

“Everything you are looking for”

OverallI absolutely love Carsforsale.com the staff are very helpful and really make sure you get every opportunity and the most out of everything they have to offer.
ProsCarsforsale.com is everything a small business is looking for. They are very helpful with set up and design they also give you examples of similar dealerships to help you make the most of your website. The website is easy to navigate and add inventory as well as all the included extras like paperwork, facebook postings, and all other social media platforms. This really can give your business a boost to look and feel so much more professional and visible to the public. Very much a one stop shop for advertising!
ConsThe only complaint I have is maybe the time it takes to enter inventory but that is at a minimum copy and paste help breeze through the process but it still can take some time.

“Finest site for small car dealers available (and suspect for larger ones as well)”

OverallThe work with me to resolve any issues and do so politely and with a positive attitude .. they don't blame others but rather work with them (I have a 3rd party supplier of the data for the website). It has been 3 years now and I have only gotten more pleased.
Proscustomer support (if issues arise they work with you until resolved), price for all the features (the vechicle history is worth the price alone - almost), dependability, and overall quality. I have tried 4 others to great disappointment and expense. This is the one if you want the best value, service and quality!
ConsI have not found any to list .. the only issue is with me not taking advantage of all the variables available to me .

“Most value for your money!! ”

OverallEasy to use backend tool for adding and removing vehicle with tons of great tools for advertising, history reports, selling paperwork, you name it they got it! If they don't have it, tell them and they will work on it adding it to the backend tool ! Been with them over 7 years and I wish I found them sooner!!
ProsThey have so many great tools for auto dealers. We get so much tools and products for the value. History reports, vehicle comparison prices, vin decoding, mobile app, and etc.. Customer service is great!! easy to load delete vehicles, great websites/mobile sites, always adding new tools !! More increased value !!
ConsNothing! They are always working on integrating new ideas and tools.

Overall I've been with cars for sale for several years now and they always exceeded my expectations yesterday support team help me do a search engine optimization for my company explaining how that worked and helping me set that up.I can't tell you how helpful that was . their customer service was taken to a level that today that is rarely seen.
ProsThe ease of use is exceptional,the tools available help me understand the traffic on our web site and the best ways and times to advertise . The cost is a fraction of their competitors . In my dealership it's probably the best bang for the buck of all the subscription account I have
Cons I'm sorry but I can't think of one negative thing to say about cars for sale

“The best value and unbeatable customer service”

OverallCarsforsale continually rolls out new features that make us feel like they are striving to improve, and are interested in us improving as well. No email or phone call has ever been ignored, and service has been fast and efficient.
ProsSoftware is easy to use, even for those with only basic computer skills. Nonetheless, there are plenty of features that you can pour over and utilize, so the package is anything but basic.
ConsThe mobile app is occasionally slow to load, and there is no way to quickly copy the VIN from the app to paste into other software/texts.

“Greatest Bang For Your Buck”

ProsCarsForSale platform offers so much for such a low price. I am very used to spending more money with other platforms such as AutoTrader and CarGurus and getting much less out of it. Anywhere from inventory management to printing common documentation such as a buyer's warranty guide is just a few clicks away.
ConsI wish CarsForSale offered a bit more modernized website design for dealerships to choose from. The designs do feel/look a bit old and outdated in my opinion. But it's not horrible.

“From a salespersons view”

OverallCars for sale is a good feature. You would think that the people are ready to buy sometimes they are and arent but thats sales. The problems are when you email or call the people they dont respond or their information is invalid.
ProsThe ease of having a online customer and not someone sitting with you all day wasting your time.
ConsSome of the leads arent serious and cars.com should send a email before the info is sent to the dealer to insure that the above prospect is a real person. Also to find out how far along the customer is in the process.

“Great product with a few frustrations.”

OverallI'd give carsforsale.com a 7.5 out of 10. The lack of being able to save a bill of sale is what takes this from a 10 to 7.5. It's extremely frustrating.
ProsI like how easy it is to use the app to upload pictures and vehicles to the website. It was well designed, simple, but thorough.
ConsI least like that a bill of sale will save with all the customer's information. It's frustrating to have to look through a huge stack of folders every time I need to go back and check something on a vehicle.

“The best ”

OverallI've been using cars for sale for over 10 years. For the money it's the best form of advertising. Great website gets built for you and it's very easy to ad and remove vehicles and update pictures and information. Also really easy to get a hold of someone hen you need the help. Other companies do promise cheap rates and similar services. But I wouldn't trust anyone else.
Pros1- Cost 2- Ease of use 3- Exposure 4- customer service
Cons1- No longer 1 click to post on craigslist 2- Website might go offline once in a great while

“Terrible mobile device interface. ”

OverallReally poorly designed program and especially the mobile app. Really bad. Really really bad.
ProsNothing. It's not effective, not streamlined, and too cumbersome. The old platform was 1,000 times better.
ConsCan't expand thumbnail views, can't delete multiple vehicles at once, can't copy vin number on mobile interface, too many security levels and log in procedures, can't use my talk to text in the description field on my mobile device. And lots more annoying things.

“The independent dealer software you can't live without. ”

OverallI love it. Have used it for 5 or 6 years. Wouldn't be without it. Highly recommend it.
ProsExtremely easy to use. Fast to setup inventory, add, delete, update for all customers to see. The smart phone app works fantastic. Facebook marketplace integration is a must have and is free. Free website works great and lots of options to choose from or make it one of a kind.
ConsWebsite template updating can take a bit longer but works fine.

“Ease of use!”

ProsSuper easy to navigate with everything you need.
ConsThe way that your adds are sent to third party like (marketplace) . If dealer lists a price for down payment it cannot show and automatically generates monthly amount confusing the customer. The other option is the layout over the picture and placing (down payment listed below) this helps, however still confusing. Overall great space and again easy to use.

“Automotive marketing”

Overalli am trying to solve the transport need of the public but not enough advertisement from the host co. They need to be on top of their game when comes to marketing there product. I have been using them for the past year but have never sold a car through them that's $1200.00 a year from my advertising budget.
ProsI love the way the company has structured the training very user friendly I am an older individual but was following every step of the way. They always implement new features on their site keeping up with the current marketing strategies.
Consnot enough leads they should try to be able to generate some more leads to the dealers.

ProsExtremely easy to use online/app interface system. Vehicles display is appealing Carsforsale.com sends the data uploaded to other sites for you.

“Advertising Giant”

ProsIt enables our dealership to easily post our inventory to our website. Software is is eat to navigate and you don't need a PHD to know how to use it.
ConsOnly thing that could use some work is the ability to edit vehicles that have been modified from their original version. Ex: We have Ford trucks that have had Dodge Cummins motors in them and with this system we can't list it the way it actually is.

“CarsForSale Review on Software”

ProsIts honestly very easy to use, can find your way around the website pretty fast
ConsWhen trying to put the "Sold" vehicles off the website it can get a little confusing on that one because we do all of our paperwork here and dont want to put customers information in this system since we are the dealership we do everything here so thats just the only thing i dont like on it. Everything else is great

OverallI love the fact that my website is clean and easy to look at. My customers love the fact they can fill out a credit app and even make monthly payment just by making a few clicks. Using carsforsale.com for our web services has made a huge difference in helping us build the brand plus I cant say enough about the team. They always go above and beyond to help with any questions I may have and are very quick to add any features I my website might need. Big thanks to the entire Team for helping us grow.
ProsLove that its easy to use and website runs on any smartphone.
ConsReally dont have any cons since I use another DMS system to run all my transactions.

“Changed the car selling game! ”

OverallCarsforsale has really changed out company. Our reach is much further now and we can quickly advertise our sales and new inventory in a much more efficient and throughout way!
ProsI love the ease of inputting our inventory and how easy it is to reach so many different outlets and people! Not only in our area but everywhere!
ConsI wouldn't change much, honestly. The mobile app could be a little better but it is still a good app!

OverallAlways a great experience. Never DREAD handling any issues or questions.
ProsIt is a breeze to navigate through and IF I did run into any problems the staff was always available and patient. They are very thorough and never make you feel "dumb".
ConsI wish we could have the option to post staff pictures on the page somewhere! Instead I have to call them, forward desired pic and wait! Why not make a section where the shopper can see the faces of the staff they will be interacting with? A "meet the staff" if you will!

“Best investment”

OverallThe overall experience that we've had with carsforsale.com has been nothing less than exceptional. We were actually having some difficulty getting all of the information submitted to our finance company because there was no place on the finance application on the website for the customer to put the name of their bank. After a brief phone conversation, we were told that the additional subsection that we requested would be added. It was added the same day and have had no further issues. This helped eliminate an extra step and save time, as well as increase our credibility with our customers. These are the intangible details that we feel make carsforsale.com stand alone!
ProsIt is easy to navigate and make changes. excellent lead notification. great customer reviews.
Conswe do not have any cons to speak of at this time!
