Small and independent used car dealers can be found on dealer search engines such as Autotrader, Cars.com and CARFAX. Some rental car companies, such as an Enterprise, also operate dealerships that sell their used rental cars.
To find a used car dealership with the Autotrader site, users can select the Find Local Dealers option from the main site navigation, as of March 2015. This launches a page that contains both a map and list of dealers with a given zip code. User are able to filter results based on the vehicle inventory of the dealer, the makes offered by the dealer and any special services offered. Each listing contains the logo and name of the dealer as well as its address and phone number.
Alternatively, the CARFAX site prompts users to search for vehicles by make and model or type, then displays listings for various dealers within its network. Users also have the option to view listings based on popular searches conducted on the site. Each listing contains a picture of the used car and a description of its condition and available features. Users are able to contact the seller through the CARFAX site or visit the dealer's site directly to initiate contact.
