What Determines a Vehicle Ranking on a Directory Page?

DealerRater's mission is to help consumers find the right dealership for them. With that in mind, DealerRater's Car for Sale listings prioritizes dealerships that provide the best experience first (based on the dealership’s average rating). Other criteria used to sort vehicles can be found below:

  1. Dealer Average Rating (highest to lowest)

  2. Price (lowest to highest)

  3. Presence of a vehicle photo

  4. Distance to the postal code entered (lowest to highest)

  5. Mileage of the vehicle (lowest to highest)

The order of the items listed above is based on feedback from consumers, identifying the most important criteria to them when searching for a vehicle.
