Business description: DriverSide is committed to be the #1 online resource for anyone who owns a car. Whether consumers access the site for buying, servicing, maintaining, accessorizing or selling, we have brought together all the information and resources needed to make automobile ownership an easy and personalized experience. At DriverSide, we recognize that during today’s tough economic times consumers are looking for help in bringing down the total cost of ownership and making the experience of owning a car easier. We save our users money by stripping out traditional fees like those associated with listing cars for sale or asking a professional mechanic for advice. We help people save time and money on car servicing and provide resources and tools for reducing the depreciation of their vehicles. How consumers can benefit at DriverSide: •Money Saving: Whether it is to avoid fees other websites charge or avoid overpaying the mechanic, DriverSide can help. •Convenience: Not only can we assist in finding the right car, but also finding the right mechanic to maintain it, budgeting right amount to spend on upkeep and choosing the right accessories to personalize it. •Safety: Having the peace of mind that comes from knowing if and when there are safety recalls or maintenance issues that could be putting you or your loved ones at risk and being able to get those resolved right away. •Knowledge: DriverSide’s resources can help you become a smarter car owner. You can ask questions of a certified mechanic, research costs of servicing and parts and share knowledge with other owners who have the same vehicle. •Financial Responsibility: Whether you’re leasing or making payments, we can help decide when to hold them, when to fold them, when to walk away and when to run.
