BLOOMINGTON, MN – CarSoup and Carfax are expanding their partnership by integrating Carfax Vehicle History Reports into the CarSoup iPad app. Consumers shopping for used cars using the CarSoup app get free Carfax Vehicle History Reports from subscribing dealers – anytime, anywhere. The app makes car shopping even more convenient and the integration of Carfax Reports helps build consumer confidence.
“We’re excited that consumers are giving CarSoup.com’s new iPad app 5-star ratings, and we feel it’s because it provides a great shopping experience for new car and used car buyers,” said CarSoup.com President, Larry Cuneo. “Carfax definitely adds to that experience providing confidence and quality information to help shoppers find great values and the right car anywhere, anytime right from their iPad.”
The CarSoup app includes a unique feature that lets users sort vehicle listings by free Carfax Reports and Carfax 1-Owner vehicles. App users can instantly view Carfax Reports with just a tap of their screen. They see details like mileage readings, service history, number of previous owners and other vital information needed before buying a used car. Consumers save time by narrowing their search down to cars that fit their needs.
Shoppers also can purchase a Carfax Report directly from the CarSoup iPad app.
“Carfax Reports enhance the CarSoup app by providing consumers with crucial information about the vehicle’s history – all from their iPad,” said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax. “It’s the confidence boost they need to know they’re making a smart buying decision.”
Since 2010, CarSoup has automatically linked Carfax Reports run by dealers to their listings on CarSoup.com. In January 2012, CarSoup added the same enhancement, in addition to highlighting Carfax 1-Owner cars, to their mobile website.
