Car Dealer Reviews – Yelp and Facebook

car dealer reviews

The best place to get car dealer reviews is online. You can read and print out all your own Car Dealers Reviews, see past customer feedback and develop a completely new one for your vehicle from your laptop, tablet or cell phone. Or you could just search for a particular car dealer review by category. As you probably know, there are hundreds to choose from. Car dealers, car manufacturers and auto service centers will all have reviews available to the public.

But, it is also a wise idea to use an online resource which specifically caters to car dealer reviews. Some websites are just sales pages, trying to sell you a product. And they are not likely to include unfavorable customer experiences. So, why would an online review site focus on bad customer experiences? That’s a question I will answer in this article.

In today’s world, customer satisfaction is highly valued. One of the reasons that many customers go to car dealer reviews is because they believe the business is highly rated, which often means that it is safe to purchase from. In addition, customer reviews also reveal that the company takes very good care of its reputation. It is likely that a highly rated business would take steps to correct any negative feedback and prevent it from becoming widespread. Many companies do this, and it is very likely that the one-star reviewer had it happen to them. Therefore, it is in the best interest of the car dealer, industry and public to work toward raising the overall reputation of the company and repairing any negative comments and complaints.

There are a number of ways to gauge a company’s reputation including customer service, response time, warranties, products and service and so on. But, car dealer reviews are not like a consumer report that shows how a company fares on all issues. The two are very different, and customer service is one area where we expect to see relatively high marks given that it is a service that prospective buyers are seeking out. Unfortunately, many times the service is substandard. When this happens, the buyer has a less satisfying experience. While it may be the fault of a particular dealership, the buyer should not overlook the possibility that other customers who have bought from that dealership had equally poor experiences.

With that said, it’s likely that a number of car dealer reviews have been biased by the reviewer themselves, since they likely work for the dealership. This is especially true in online reviews, since there is no physical dealership the writer has ever been to. As stated above, it is unlikely that all online reviews are biased, but it’s likely that many car dealer review sites are unintentionally leaning toward one specific brand or another. One should not simply take this as the result of the reviews being written by employees of the dealership, since those same writers may be trying to make a commission from selling their own products.

The good news is that those who read online review sites tend to be much more objective in their assessments. When it comes to car dealer reviews, this may mean that some reviewers are trying to sell readers on one specific automaker. However, when you look at the reviews on an impartial standpoint, there are many different players in the automotive industry, and it is unlikely that any of them are trying to obscure any one specific automaker.

For those who are interested in the automotive industry in general, it is also important to look at both Yelp and Facebook. Both websites have hundreds of millions of users, and many of them frequent both Yelp and Facebook. While many of the reviews are legitimate, there are definitely those that are not. Yelp, for example, does not allow personal information, such as a person’s name, email address, or phone number, to be posted on their website. For this reason, many people use Yelp as a means of connecting with friends who live in a particular area when they want to enjoy a night out in that area.

Social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, have only recently become popular among consumers, but they have certainly exploded in popularity over the last year or so. In fact, most people now have a Facebook account, and many of them regularly update their status and pictures on a daily basis on these social media sites. This is why it is important to consider both Yelp and Facebook when it comes to reviewing car dealer reviews. While the integrity of both reviews is questionable at best, there are a number of positives when it comes to using social media to connect with friends and family members. While both Yelp and Facebook may not necessarily be completely accurate, neither are they completely useless when it comes to helping a consumer learn more about a given automaker.
