CHICAGO - Cars.com announced the addition of CARFAX Vehicle History Reports to the site's mobile platform. Shoppers who visit http://m.cars.com can view free CARFAX Reports purchased by subscribing dealers with a simple screen tap. With even more valuable information available at their fingertips, smartphone users can make faster buying decisions.
"Cars.com continues to pioneer the way car shoppers use mobile to buy new and used cars," said Sharon Knitter, Senior Director Mobile for Cars.com. "Nearly 35 percent of car shoppers use their mobile devices such as iPads and smartphones during the car-shopping process, so the addition of free CARFAX Vehicle History Reports gives these shoppers one more invaluable tool to help them shop with confidence."
Since 2005, Cars.com has automatically linked CARFAX Reports paid for by dealers to their main website listings. Mobile site visitors will see a CARFAX text link on the vehicle details page of each listing that has a CARFAX Report from the dealer. With this enhancement, Cars.com and CARFAX are helping to meet the needs of both on-the-go and online shoppers.
"Smartphone shoppers expect to get the same information as they would using a computer to search for used cars online," said Larry Gamache, communications director at CARFAX. "Providing access to CARFAX Reports on the Cars.com mobile site helps ensure on-the-go buyers won't miss this crucial step in their decision-making process and can buy with greater confidence."
