Those two words instill feelings of security, doubt, hesitation, and excitement.
Having the ability to own a vehicle is vastly different than knowing how to attain one.
Through the decades finding “THE (vehicle)” has also evolved right along with the internet. Search engines help you find the vast listings of databases to help you out; a bit overwhelming to be sure.
Out of the plethora of sites, I still find Cars.com to be one of the leading ones when it comes to listings of vehicles and research tools.
A bit of background and history on Cars.com:

I tested out their review system and looked up my current vehicle; I must say, I 100% agree with their analysis!
Find the best service center for you!
Wow! I have never seen a site offer DIY Repairs; I admit, I look towards YouTube, Cars.com centralizes what I am looking to repair and cuts out a lot of the hassle.
Woo, I know most of us went through (or are still going through) the Takata Air Bag recall. I had mine done last year, but decided to check out to see if any new recalls or safety issues have happened since:
For recalls, Cars.com, as you can see, gives you not only the basics of the recall, but the summary, consequence, what you should do, AND provides local dealerships that have been approved to correct the recall.
Guess what you can also do on the site? Bought a car for a dealership? Had service work done on your vehicle?
You can leave a review on the dealership or place where you had service performed:
Flip side, that means you can also read up on places before you take your vehicle in, or want to purchase a vehicle.
Have too many vehicles? Looking to sell prior to making a new purchase commitment?
Cars.com gives you a few options right alongside everything else this site can do for you!
No matter what you are looking to do when it comes to vehicle ownership ~ selling, buying new or used, service repair, recall, reviews, research
