Pinoy Auto Trader has a wide variety of search criteria for both new and used cars. Buyers will also be able to browse and connect with the largest directory of dealership showrooms nationwide.

Another major highlight of the Pinoy Auto Trader website is the ability for new and used car dealerships to log into their own dealership control panel in order to manage and update information on their own dealership micro sites.

The online showrooms not only publicize car listings but also act as a platform for car dealerships to highlight company information, social media, key sales staff, promotions and public announcements.

The site?s interface includes functions for email and phone calls in order for buyers to connect with sellers.

Dealers and other interested parties can also share their car listings on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
