    DealerTrack VS DDC VS VINSolutions - But Cox still Wins

    DealerTrack which owned 2+ CRM's then buys Dealer.com which was rolling out their new CRM. Then Cox comes in and swoops up DealerTrack while already owning VINSolutions. Let's agree Cox isn't going to sell 4+ CRM's. So which CRM will Cox/AutoTrader fully adopt and offer to Dealers?
