    Announced this morning - cars.com sets out to acquire DealerRater - http://www.streetinsider.com/dr/news.php?id=11862382


    What will happen to DealerRater?
    Was this nothing more than a strategy to mess with AutoTrader.com?
    Will we even hear the name DealerRater after 6 months?

    I feel the same way @Alex Snyder@Alex Snyder! Genuinely happy for Chip Grueter this morning. Good guy with a good idea and "the goods" to see it through to completion.

    Congratulations to DealerRater and Cars.com. This merger clearly shows the value and growing importance of personal reviews at the salesperson and service advisor level. Although our product at GrowthFX is designed for the dealer and employees to manage and leverage their own reputations, we strongly applaud the attention this will bring to improving customer experiences!
