For years DriveChicago.com has been providing Chicagoland’s auto shoppers the ability to search local dealership’s new and pre-owned inventory in one easy shopping site. The site is owned by the Chicago Automobile Trade Association but AIM hosts and operates the site for over 400 dealer members.
In the early 2000’s Drive Chicago was a partnership of The Chicago Sun-Times, The Northwest Herald and the Chicago Automobile Trade Association. The group worked together with Chicagoland car dealers to market their inventory to the masses through monthly magazines, shopper guides, newspapers at grocery stores and even auto part stores. In 2005, the association took over full control and begin their online presence with DriveChicago.com.
CATA worked with a couple of vendors before partnering with AIM in 2009. We take direction from the CATA staff and Board of Directors. Throughout our partnership, our goal is simple, to promote DriveChicago.com to auto shoppers who are in the market for a new, certified or used car. The site hosts the largest selection of vehicle inventory from new car dealers in the area and is designed to make finding a vehicle easy for Chicagoland auto shoppers.
In addition to providing the technology, hosting and support for DriveChicago.com, AIM provides the digital marketing services for the Chicago Auto Show. The auto show is the nation’s largest and longest -running auto show.
