As a pioneering tech company, CarGurus is used to taking a lead in order to stay ahead of the pack. We are therefore delighted to announce the latest breakthrough in our mission to create the world’s most trusted and transparent automotive marketplace: a dog trained to sniff out the best used car deals.
Over the past six months, our six-year-old cocker spaniel, Bobo, has been through an intensive training period with data scientists and car buying experts from CarGurus. Now, having taken on board our complex Instant Market Value algorithm, he can bark and offer his paw to a customer when he’s tracked down the ‘paw-fect’ used car deal.
“The saying goes that you should never work with children or animals, but we don’t agree with that when it comes to buying a used car,” said Anna Milexpert, head of K9 research and development at CarGurus. “Bobo has proved to be the perfect sniffer dog when hunting for the best deal. We expect Bobo to be in huge demand with our shoppers but if he’s not available then fear not – prospective buyers can simply log on to CarGurus.co.uk to find great deals from top-rated dealers.”
Naturally, we expect some people will think we are barking up the wrong tree with this latest development. But we’ll let you judge for yourself when Bobo becomes available to consumers who visit the CarGurus website from April 1.
