Edmunds.com Presents First Annual Five Star Premier Dealer Awards to 95 Dealerships Nationwide

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — February 08, 2013 — Edmunds.com, the premier resource for car shopping and automotive information, presented its inaugural Edmunds.com Five Star Premier Dealer Awards today at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention and Expo in Orlando, Fla. The awards were issued to 95 car dealerships from across the country.

"Edmunds.com believes that customer service should be the number one priority for any dealership that wants to be successful," says Edmunds.com President Seth Berkowitz. "These 95 dealerships present a model for customer satisfaction, and we congratulate each one of them for creating an exceptional car buying experience."

Only participants in Edmunds.com's Premier Dealer program were considered for the 2013 Five Star Premier Dealer Awards. To be eligible for the award, the dealership must have earned an average customer review rating of five stars on Edmunds.com — with a minimum of 20 reviews during the previous two years — as of January 17, 2013.
