Consumers are becoming more aware and concerned about the environmental impact of their driving habits and choice of vehicle.
Tap into this interest by including EPA Green Scores in your vehicle details pages. These scores relate to the air pollution and greenhouse gas score of the vehicle, as well as identify the vehicles awarded the EPA SmartWay and SmartWay Elite status.
Perhaps no vehicle data point is more consistently researched and inquired about than the vehicle's fuel efficiency or MPG (Miles Per Gallon). With high gas prices a reality and higher future gas prices likely, a vehicle's MPG is a real concern to prospective buyers.
Couple those budgetary concerns with environmental concerns many consumers have and you can see why fuel efficiency is a must-have for any inventory listing or vehicle details page.
Our data is designed to be used for promotional use in vehicle marketing as well as in business analysis and studies.
NHTSA 5-Star Safety Ratings are an important element for inclusion in online consumer research and shopping displays. These safety ratings have been provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration since 1990 and have become a safety standard vehicle shoppers recognize and look for.
Ratings are available for overall categories, as well as for specific impact types and passenger areas tested. The ratings are also valuable for risk management/insurance industries.
This dataset is suitable for research and statistic projects as well as vehicle marketing. Additionally, consumer research-oriented sites will find this data especially useful for vehicle comparisons.
OEMs are required to contact parties affected by recalls and offer service to resolve the issue at a nearby dealership at no cost. This presents a business opportunity to dealers looking to capture the associated service revenue.
DataOne Software’s NHTSA Recalls data was created to support both CRM/marketing efforts to contact affected vehicle owners, as well as service-centered solutions used by technicians. The recalls have been filtered to include only automotive and light-duty OEM equipment, parts, and accessories. The data set is VIN referenced and tied to DataOne's VehicleID for ease of use and integration as a stand-alone product or coupled with additional data products.
