February 3, 2012 (Burlington, VT) – Dealer.com, the global leader in online marketing solutions for the automotive industry, proudly received the “Highest Rated – Mobile Sites” award in the third annual DrivingSales Dealer Satisfaction Awards. The awards are determined by thousands of auto dealers who are part of the DrivingSales.com community.
