Statista and AUTO BILD Honor the Top 1,000 German Car Dealers


13.03.2015, Hamburg – On average, a German will buy a new car every 5 to 6 years.
While purchasing, he or she will have around 35,000 dealers to choose from. Not too easy. That’s why Statista and AUTO BILD made it their business to identify the best 1,000 used and new-car dealers.

To achieve this, the 10,000 highest-selling German traders were asked to take part in a survey and to reference their colleagues. Secondly, a comprehensive survey for customers was launched.


7,276 car holders joined the survey and were interviewed to value the transparency of supply, consulting, variety of offers and pricing of the best known car traders in Germany. Around 20,000 customer opinions finally flowed into the assessment.


The most valued criterions of the survey were transparency, honesty and commitment. Around 87% of the customers are expecting the dealer to give hints about damage and flaws. In the ranking, you can find many big car traders but also small vendors who convinced with their quality, making it into the Top 1,000. All were honored with a seal. The entire test can be found in the AUTO BILD issue from March 13.
