Edmunds.com Launches Online Car Game with Cash Card Prizes
Santa Monica, Calif. — September 3, 2010 — Why are people attracted to the cars they buy? How well could you predict how other people feel about a car's appearance, luxuriousness and sportiness?
Edmunds.com, the premier online resource for automotive information, today announces the launch of its Vehicle Rating Game at http://survey.edmunds.com/rating. Participants are asked to rate a set of cars on their appearance, luxuriousness and sportiness, and then are challenged to predict the average rating for each vehicle from all the other players. The game takes about five minutes to play, and winners will be announced monthly and will be awarded Visa gift cards worth up to $2,000.
"Developed in collaboration with Claremont College and Princeton University professor Ely Dahan, the Vehicle Ratings Game will enable Edmunds.com to tap the 'wisdom of crowds' and capture subjective data on how people think about the emotional aspects of cars," said Rob Hardy, Product Manager of Consumer Preferences at Edmunds.com. "Most importantly, the Vehicle Ratings Game data will ultimately be used to help automotive shoppers understand what kind of car is right for them."
