Is Carfax hurting consumers and dealers?

carfoxCarfax is under fire from both the media and car dealerships. In March, ABC’s 20/20 “investigation revealed dozens of used cars with clean Carfaxes — even though the cars had been in accidents, and others had frame damage.” Then Automotive News reported 120 dealerships have teamed up to sue Carfax for $50 million citing the website of having a monopoly on vehicle history reports.

Paul Nadjarian, Founder and CEO of Mojo Motors had this to say about the lawsuit:

The best result for cars shoppers is to have easy and quick access to as much information as possible. Most dealers either use Carfax or AutoCheck. However, the exclusive deals Carfax has struck with third party website and certified programs does not allow dealers that use AutoCheck to provide history reports to cars shoppers on those sites – this is just plain wrong. This hurts customer and dealers. If a dealer has already purchased a vehicle history report, regardless if it is Carfax or AutoCheck, cars shoppers who find the dealer’s vehicle online should have access to the report. This is the best result for the customer and the dealer.

Are you a car stalker?

When shopping for a car, being a stalker is highly recommended by Mojo Motors. In fact, it’s the best way to find the best price on the best used car or truck. When you are not shopping for a car, however, being a stalker is not recommended.

Follow Cars on Mojo Motors

We already talked about how to use Mojo Motors while shopping for a car, but we decided to write an alternative post replacing ‘Follow’ with words like stalking. Sure, ‘Follow’ is our word of choice on the website, but stalk is a suitable synonym and a bit more interesting too. [keep reading]

Unusual cars to fend off zombie attacks

Unusual cars to fend off zombie attack Image Mojo Motors BlogThe official Guide to Zombie Survival infographic was released yesterday with a complete analysis of the commonly encountered types of zombies, what happens after you’re bitten and a list of mandatory supplies for “maximum chance of survival.” These include water, non-perishable victuals, medicine/first aid supplies, radio and clothing. There’s an essential part of the guide missing and it doesn’t answer the question of transportation. Thus, the Mojo Motors Blog will finish where the infographic left off by offering up the best non-traditional vehicles to use during zombie attacks.

You might be thinking a Toyota FJ Cruiser, Jeep Wrangler (hard top) or Hummer would make for the best vehicles when facing a zombie attack but you’re wrong. Dead wrong. Sure, their four wheel drive and skid plates are superior for all-terrain navigation, however, when the zombie attacks start happening, everyone will be scrambling to find these vehicles. A survivor needs to think outside the Hard Top Jeep Wrangler or FJ Cruiser. That’s why Mojo Motors has done the legwork for you, developing a comprehensive list of unusual vehicles and strategies that could potentially save your life during the zombie attack that will probably never happen.

If you care at all about your future, your children’s future or your children’s children you will read on.

The most popular car colors

White was named the most popular car color in America beating out long-time favorite silver which has been the country’s most popular car color for the past ten years. It’s about time some fresh meat takes the crown from silver, but then again, the most exciting thing about white is when it makes an appearance on wheels. Refer to this Mustang Saleen and this Subaru WRX STi. White may be the most popular car color in America, but based on 117 responses from our Facebook fans, both red and black beat out America’s favorite by quite a majority. Even further down the list is silver, which was beaten out by the color blue in the fourth spot and green in the fifth-place spot.
