Overall, 24.5% of automobile owners visited at least one automotive site. The most popular automotive site among GM owners is Carpoint, while the most popular one for Toyota/Lexus owners is Edmunds.
Authors of the report hope the information will aid the planning process for automotive manufacturers, dealers, financiers, aftermarket businesses, insurers, advertising agencies and online media companies buying and selling ad space within the automotive industry. It is also valuable for Web companies looking to identify what types of people are visiting their site, what vehicles they drive and how competing sites stack up.
