CarsDirect Targets Former Chrysler, GM Dealers

El Segundo-based CarsDirect, the online automotive shopping and information site owned by Internet Brands, said Thursday that the firm will offer free online used car inventory listings to the unfortunate Chrysler and General Motors franchise dealers who were recently terminated by those auto brands. According to CarsDirect, the firm hopes to help those dealers drive sales during the transition period, explaining that a number of those dealerships are shifting to used cars. CarsDirect said it will give those dealerships 60 days of free used car listings on its network of sites, plus additional discounts on the service after those 60 days.
