I'm Trying To Contact A Seller Via This Website, But The Seller Will Not Respond, Can You Help?

No. We are unable to get involved in the buying process, including seller/buyer communications. Although we try hard to provide our users with every possible way to contact a seller (private or dealer), we cannot guarantee that the seller will reply to any request for more information. We suggest you try more than one way to contact a seller. If you email or use our online form to ask a question, follow up that request with a phone call.

I Visited A Dealership To View A Vehicle I Found On This Website. After Talking To A Sales Person I Found Out That The Vehicle Was Sold. Why Is This Vehicle Still Online?

Showcase Publications, Inc. deals with thousands of dealers every week. It is impossible for us to know when a vehicle has been sold and what inventory is still available on any given lot. It is up to the seller to provide us with all information needed to update their publication and online inventory. Please keep in mind that most sellers are very busy and do not have the time or resources to contact us every time they sell a vehicle. Most sellers wait until the next publication release to update their inventory. We highly suggest that you contact the seller before visiting the location of any vehicle for sale.
