Yahoo! Internet Life, a Ziff Davis consumer magazine, has named AutoTrader.com best used car hub on the Web, designating the site a Gold Star Site for its depth of used vehicle listings, clean design, ease of use, and breadth of services.

Yahoo! Internet Life praised Auto-Trader.com as a cleanly designed site that allows consumers to search for vehicles, sort through the returns, get Kelley Blue Book price quotes, safety information, reviews from auto experts, seller contact information and directions, warranty, finance and insurance rate quotes.

AutoTrader.com's Decision Guide, a feature that allows consumers to compare cars side-by-side, is powered by the same technology as AOL AutoDecision Guide, which was also a Gold Star winner.

In 1999, approximately 45 million used vehicles were sold in the U.S., three times the number of new vehicles sold during the same period. AutoTrader.com's consumer audience grew by 500% and delivered more than 1 million qualified leads to car sellers each month during 1999, according to statistics released by the company.
