TOLEDO, Ohio, May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Yark Automotive Group (Yark) announced today the launch of Yark QuickBuy, a new pre-owned eCommerce car buying experience that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with local customer service to ensure customers find the right car to fit their lifestyle and budget. While Yark has supported aspects of online sales in the past, Yark QuickBuy customers now have the ability to complete the entire car buying process online in as few as 20 minutes—everything from browsing vehicles and financing options to adding after-market products and scheduling home delivery.
“We created Yark QuickBuy to save our customers’ valuable time and offer them a fully-online car buying experience,” stated Billy Yark, Group Marketing and eCommerce Director, Yark Automotive Group. “With Yark QuickBuy customers can shop however they want to shop, whenever they want to shop. We are proud to be the first dealership in Toledo to offer a start to finish online car buying experience, but if for any reason a customer wants to come into the dealership to see the car or talk to one of our sales experts, that’s always an option.”
Yark QuickBuy uses Cox Automotive’s state-of-the-art Esntial Commerce™ technology, which guides consumers through the car buying process faster and more seamlessly and more completely than any other digital platform. AI-powered shopping features and patent-pending finance automation enable customers to see pre-qualified payments on every pre-owned vehicle available in inventory and shop by make, model, price, and monthly budget.
Key benefits for consumers purchasing vehicles through Yark QuickBuy include:
- Automated financing and lender approval

- Transparent pricing
- Prescriptive aftermarket product and insurance offerings
- Trusted trade-in opportunities with Kelley Blue Book® Instant Cash Offer (ICO)
- Safe and secure completion and signing of deal paperwork and payments

“Yark QuickBuy is the future of car buying,” said Scott Duncan, Yark QuickBuy Manager. “It’s great to be able to give our customers a trusted option to complete their purchase online, while still offering the same local expertise and aftermarket services we’ve been providing for more than 40 years. And we provide a 3-month or 3,000-mile limited warranty in addition to our 5-day or 500-mile no hassle return policy that both come with every Yark QuickBuy purchase. If a customer changes their mind for any reason, they can return the vehicle for a full refund.”
