This installment of Auto Remarketing’s annual Top 100 Used Car Dealers is the first in a two-part series and focuses on franchised dealers.
Included in the June 1 print and digital edition of Auto Remarketing, this is where we highlight some of the strongest used-car selling franchised stores in the country.
The dealer rankings data in this report is courtesy of Dominion Cross-Sell, which collects the information via state departments of motor vehicles.
The Top 100 sales rankings are based on retail used-vehicle unit sales from full-year 2018. Fleet sales were removed where possible.
Please note that while the Cross-Sell data includes a substantial portion of the U.S., it is not meant to be representative of all 50 states.
Again, Cross-Sell gathers the sales data via state DMV title registrations.
Some stores within a multi-point group may title used-vehicle retail sales with their respective state DMV as a group, versus titling individually.
This has been corrected in the data where possible. It is up to the individual state to decipher such collective filings.
Additionally, some of the registration information reported to Cross-Sell may not include city or address information. Given that the sales figures are based on vehicle registrations as reported by state DMVs, sales to customers who register the vehicle out of state are not included in a dealer’s sales total.
Other notes: California sales data only includes the most recent six model years.
**With regards to the Tesla reference at No. 63. The data Cross-Sell received from the state of California designated that address on those sales, which is the Tesla corporate office address. Based on the information provided by the state DMV, Cross-Sell was not able to determine the specific location from which those sales originated. Other specific Tesla sale locations were specified and designated by the state in the full data set; however, those specific locations were not among the 100 highest for sales.

Together, the dealers we spotlight in this feature represent some of the strongest in pre-owned performance. Congratulations to all.
