Los Angeles-based CarsDirect is the leading multi-brand online car buying service, providing new car, used car, and auto finance-related content and services since 1998. As the pioneer of the direct online car buying model, CarsDirect has become the natural choice for consumers who demand objectivity, selection and upfront pricing, and for dealers who want to leverage the Internet for cost-effective, incremental sales and revenue.
CarsDirect's success has been recognized by numerous industry awards, including being named one of the "50 Best" websites in the world by Time Magazine, a "Top 100 Classic Website" by PC Magazine, and a "Top Site for Buying or Selling Anything" by PC World.
In 2005, CarsDirect changed its corporate name to Internet Brands, Inc. to reflect its transition to a diversified, multi-vertical company. Internet Brands became a publicly traded company on the NASDAQ exchange in November 2007 and later sold to private equity firm Hellman & Friedman in December 2010. CarsDirect currently operates as the flagship website in the Internet Brands automotive division.
