    Hi Jeff. would you want to publish a report on this blog that shows all dealers in the US and what classifieds they advertise on?
    I have a sample report for California dealers showing if the dealer is independent / franchise and if they use Autotrader or Cars.com that I will email you. We can add any other classifieds (Like Cargurus, Craigs list etc.) and additional States to this report.

    @Jeff @Alexander.. I have the team running the report on all dealers in the US for which classifieds each dealer is using and will get back as soon as it is complete and will share.

    Also, I am running an additional report for CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) active dealer inventories by dealer. If this is of interest I will share it as well?

    @Alexander I noticed your company mentioned on Linkedin you have over 750,000 inventory listings (vehicle detail pages) available to the public. If it is of interest we have over 2.2 million active used and 3.3 million active new (all unique listings no duplicates) with the dealers VDP Url (vehicle detail pages) that I am happy to send over to you?

    Oh sure on the CPO, that'd be excellent.

    My day job is completely different than what I list here. What I list here is a project I undertook in my down time (was really not working, essentially). However, we can discuss. Thanks!

    You know that there is a certain amount of variation just by location. In some areas one is stringer than the other, period.
    Still don't understand why you would't include CraigsList inn the equation when by traffic volume and the way their program works nowadays it is pretty much a 3rd party advertising site when it comes to vehicles.

    i specialize in cars under $10k and car gurus blows away autotrader... not even close. Probably 2 to 1 in terms of leads.

    I dont use cars.com but recently signed up carfax and happy with them so far. autolist has been a surprise, it was free and packaged with v12 for posting to Craigslist
