Each day they crawl over 50k dealer websites to deliver the most comprehensive and up-to-date depictions of market activity available anywhere. Individual listing records show year, make, model, and trim, with VIN-level histories, showing the most recent time the car showed up online back to the earliest, with every change that occurred over that time.
