Third-Party sites are viewed as trusted and unbiased

They have an unbiased opinion and have a larger amount of information and different types of cars and brands.

Every brand is at your fingertips. You don’t have to go from site to site, which is tedious.

It's more reliable, trustworthy and neutral. A dealer's website or manufacturer's website is not going to be as truthful or willing to share everything with the customer since their goal is a profit. The automotive shopping websites don't have a real motive to be untruthful.
