Why does the car finder service need my contact information?

Privacy Issues

Some of the online used car finder services require that you give them your e-mail address and telephone number before you can gain access to the vehicle inventory listing. Your contact information is then passed on to the participating dealers that have the type of vehicle you are looking for in stock.

Most of these services allow you to specify your preferred method of contact. If you don't want to get a call in the middle of dinner, you can specify that you only want to be contacted by e-mail. If you don't mind phone calls, you can sometimes specify when you prefer to receive calls.
