Direct Cars today announced that it has received the honour of being named a 2022 CarGurus Top-Rated Dealer. The prestigious annual award celebrates car dealerships that consistently deliver exceptional customer service to car shoppers. In earning the Top-Rated Dealer award, Direct Cars maintained a 4.5-star average rating or higher and collected at least five verified customer reviews through the CarGurus platform in 2021. CarGurus uses verified dealership ratings, along with other factors like pricing analytics to help shoppers search for a deal on a vehicle.
“CarGurus knows that trust and transparency are central to car buying, and we are proud to recognise the dealerships that reflect these values with our sixth annual Top-Rated Dealer awards,” said Sam Zales, President and Chief Operating Officer at CarGurus. “The winners are among the best of the best, and the Top-Rated Dealer program gives dealerships like Direct Cars the opportunity to showcase their outstanding customer service. We applaud them for maintaining their high standards, especially while navigating the ups and downs of inventory levels last year.”
“At Direct Cars, providing excellent customer service is central to our business, and we are thrilled to be recognised as a CarGurus Top-Rated Dealer in 2022,” said Rebecca Clough, Director at Direct Cars. “This award acknowledges our entire staff for meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations day after day. We’re committed to maintaining and developing trusted relationships, and we will strive to provide this same level of excellence in the years to come.”
CarGurus invites shoppers to review and rate dealerships with whom they have interacted during their car shopping experience on the CarGurus platform. Dealer ratings and reviews are visible to the public on the site, and they are also factored in the algorithm that CarGurus uses to rank search results for shoppers.
