Traverse City - January 27, 2017

Northpointe Motors Wins 2017 DealerRater Used Car Dealer of the Year in Michigan for an unprecedented second year in a row!

Northpointe Motors has been awarded a 2017 DealerRater Dealer of the Year Award, which recognizes auto dealerships across the U.S. and Canada who deliver outstanding customer service, based on consumer reviews written on DealerRater.com.

"Car buyers have spoken and have identified Northpointe Motors as the best Used Car Dealer dealer to do business with in MI," said DealerRater CEO Gary Tucker. "The quality and number of reviews for Northpointe Motors speak volumes of the top-notch experiences they provide to customers."

Reviewers evaluated Northpointe Motors on its customer service, quality of work, friendliness, pricing and overall experience. Northpointe Motors has demonstrated consistently high PowerScore™ ratings for customer satisfaction, placing it in the top of its class. The PowerScore is determined using a Bayesian algorithm that factors the dealership's average DealerRater consumer rating and the total number of reviews written about the dealership during the 2016 calendar year.

Ryan Craig, General Manager of Northpointe Motors said; “We became affiliated with DealerRater to give our customers an easy way to rate our services and employees. We also wanted a third-party outlet where shoppers would be able to give their honest feedback online. By having this level of public transparency, our sales team competes against each other to give the best service possible in hopes of gaining new customers for life and rave reviews online. Winning for a second year in a row is a huge honor for our company. We are proud to serve Northern Michigan and are humbled to be YOUR Used Car Dealership Winner in Michigan.”

"Today's car shoppers pay attention to reviews and a dealership's online reputation, which makes the significance of the DealerRater Dealer of the Year Awards crucial to dealers looking to thrive in today's business environment," added Tucker.
