Your Online Auto Portal

Over the years I’ve discovered that I like shopping for cars. I haven’t been able to keep any of our vehicles longer than 5 years before I start getting the itch for something new. And I can see that the cycle is repeating. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been doing a lot of research trying to find something that could replace both our Subaru Impreza WRX STI and our Honda Odyssey Touring. In the process, I found a site called CarSeek.com.

At CarSeek.com you can find an incredible amount of information about all sorts of new vehicles from sub-compacts, sports cars and luxury sedans to latest the cross-overs and hybrids. Each auto manufacturer is represented by model reviews, history, specifications, pricing options, photos, and rebate information. On top of all that information, there are links to the latest automotive news as well as articles about recent trends like electric cars and hydrogen fuel cells.

One of the things I really like about CarSeek.com is that it is really easy to find what you are looking for and all the information is very logically organized. On the left sidebar, you click one of the auto manufacturers to get background information about the company and a list of all their latest models. There’s even historical information about different makes and models that I found quite interesting. Clicking on one of the vehicle models gives you specific reviews, specs, and pricing options.

What I found particularly valuable at CarSeek.com is in a section underneath the car reviews where competitor’s vehicles are placed in three different groups: a comparable price range, a comparable body style, and a premium body style. Sometimes when I’m researching information about one vehicle, I like to know what else is out there just to keep my options open. Having vehicles grouped like that makes it really easy to look at a vehicle I might not have known about before.

CarSeek.com also goes beyond just showing you what the latest rebates are on the car you want: it also shows you what rebates are available on competing models. No extra work is required, all the information is right on one page for you to look at. This is a great thing for people who may be trying to decide between very similar vehicles. Seeing that a competitor is offering a better rebate might make it easier for someone to make a decision on which car is right for them.

Once you’ve decided on the vehicle you want and are ready to buy, getting a free online quote from CarSeek.com is as simple as clicking a button at the top of the page. There are even links to guide you through auto loan financing and insurance.
