    What are you trying to do? Do you want to display all the cars for one particular dealership? Promote multiple dealerships on one site? Warm up a buyer then send them to dealer site? What type of people are you looking to target? Those looking to buy a new car? Those looking for a particular type of car? etc... I'm asking just to help you think this through further in case you haven't, because I right now am in the process of looking for a new car. I go to google and type in "mb usa" for example. I know I don't represent all users, but i'm just wondering what your 'angle' is. This would help inform what type of avenues you can/should take. Hope that helps a bit!

    Car trade varies by location and ticket price of the motors

    Where are you based, What sort of car are they selling ? New or Used ? Im sure I can give a few quick pointers if I knew more about the business

    What are you trying to do though for these dealerships?

    Promote their cars or is this more of an "ORM"-type thing?

    Local directories are very good to promote these type of business online. (yelp, etc)
