CarStory Market Reports
Real-Time Insights You Won’t Find Anywhere Else


The Proof is in the Numbers

WHAT ARE CARSTORY MARKET REPORTS?


CarStory Market Reports arm you with detailed and unbiased insights that help you make the right decisions when buying a new, used or certified pre-owned car. We show you exactly how a car fits into your local used car marketplace, answering questions such as:

  • Is this car a good deal?
  • Are there similar vehicles nearby that have more features or lower mileage for a better price?
  • Is this car likely to sell quickly?

CarStory Market Reports arm you with critical knowledge and data that you won’t find anywhere else. They are based on years of data and analytics from the largest collection of used car and truck listings online, and arm you with critical knowledge to make an informed decision.

WHY ARE CARSTORY MARKET REPORTS FREE?


CarStory Market Reports are ALWAYS free to consumers and car dealerships; we are proud to be an unbiased, independent resource, and all of our data is proprietary.

Because the Market Reports are based on both real-time and trending marketplace data and consumer preferences, offering our reports for free encourages dealer adoption and shopper usage. This ever-growing community of CarStory users ensures the accuracy of our data, and helps improve our understanding of the used-car marketplace.


1.

Data? We’ve Got That.


We power some of the largest auto marketplaces—over 350 marketplaces in the last 10 years—40 million vehicle searches per month and more than 7 million vehicle listings at any one time.

We analyze tens of millions of used car and truck listings every day, along with real-time data on how car shoppers use and interact with those vehicles, generating the most complete picture of the used-car marketplace.


2.

And We Know Quality Counts


100% of the car and truck listings we receive and process have missing or incorrect data—yes, you read that correctly—100%. Our analysis catches and corrects these errors and inconsistencies, so dealers and buyers get a complete representation of a vehicle and its market. This is key to understanding how a car or truck stacks up to other similar vehicles from a pricing perspective.


3.

It’s All Relative


The real power of CarStory becomes even clearer when we compare the vehicles in our database to each other across local markets. This real-time analysis of such a huge number of vehicles gives us an accurate view of the relative factors that play into buying decisions—is this car really a good deal? Will this truck sell within days, or is demand for it lower in this area? Am I likely to find another just like it but with more features? If I’m willing to drive a little, can I find an even better deal?

 


4.

The Whole Story


The basic facts and stats of a used car only tell half of story—the real key is knowing where it fits into the used car marketplace. With CarStory, shoppers are armed with the insights they need to make smart buying decisions, which helps dealerships and drivers alike.

 

CarStory provides the whole story right on the Vehicle Detail Pages.

   

What Our Customers Are Saying


… [CarStory’s] ease of use for mobile (I use iPhone) was so clear, elegant and intuitive that I was able to quickly review all the details I needed, including the CARFAX™ (thanks for making that link easy to find!). We drove the 30 minutes to Platinum VW and bought the car we really wanted! We are thrilled! Beau Bernstein, New York City
