- Great search options
- Connect with local dealers
- Referral tool
At CarSoup.com, they have many services with one goal: to connect buyers and sellers. CarSoup dealers dramatically lower their cost of acquisition for each car buyer and the website's private party listings remain one of the best values online. CarSoup.com has a local focus through local broadcast media partnerships that give the website a more results-oriented approach.
Unlike popular car finder websites like Edmunds and Kelley blue book, Car Soup offers a broader spectrum of vehicle pricing research options. For instance, Kelley blue book specializes mostly in car prices, but Car Soup reviews cars plus trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, personal watercrafts, boats, snowmobiles, RVS and campers and classic vehicles.
CarSoup's relationships with local dealers is a bonus for car sellers, since Carsoup can connect them directly with local dealers in their area who can appraise their vehicle and make an offer. This is great for people looking to cash in fast on their vehicle. It is a bit more reassuring to be connected with a dealer through a Carsoup referral than to simply search for one independently with no recommendations. This also comes in handy with car repairs and maintenance, as CarSoup is able to connect customers with recommended local dealerships with auto repair facilities. Customers can sign up to receive the latest deals and coupons for car accessories like tires by providing their email address on the site page.
A useful feature for car sellers is CarSoup's Price Your Car Calculator. By plugging in the car's make, model, year and zip code that the car will be sold in, Sellers get a baseline estimate or general market value of their car. They can then determine whether to sell it for more or less, depending on improvements, dings, dents or rust.
A unique feature is the Free New Vehicle Express Quote. By plugging in the car's make, model and year, shoppers can get fast, free price quotes from dealers of their choice with no obligation.

One last honorable mention falls under the umbrella of CarSoup's relationships with local dealers. If someone is looking to sell their vehicle for cash, CarSoup's free tool allows them to skip cold calling to find a local dealer to sell their car to directly. This referral tool just requires the car make, model and year and once clicking the NEXT button, customers can select a local dealer they want to possibly sell the car to. All that is expected is to mention to the dealer that CarSoup was the one who sent them.
