DealerRater.com, the nation's premier car dealer review website, announced today the 2009 DealerRater.com Dealer of the Year awards. Each year, a select number of dealerships are awarded for outstanding customer satisfaction as expressed through customers' online reviews, posted on DealerRater.com, of their dealership experience.
"We are very pleased to award Acton Toyota of Littleton, Massachusetts the DealerRater.com overall Dealer of the Year for 2009," stated Chip Grueter, president of DealerRater.com. "Acton Toyota has won this honor for the past three years, which reflects General Manager Mike Hill's strong commitment to quality customer service."

The DealerRater.com Dealer of the Year awards are given each January to car dealerships located in the United States that have the highest PowerScore in their brand category.
Each dealership's PowerScore is determined using a Bayesian algorithm that factors the dealership's average DealerRater.com user rating over each of the year's twelve months and the total number of reviews written about the dealership during the calendar year. The dealership must also have at least twenty-five (25) new reviews written on DealerRater.com during the previous calendar year and an average rating greater than 4.0, with 5.0 as the highest possible score. The dealership that's awarded DealerRater.com's overall Dealer of the Year is recognized for having a PowerScore that outranks other brand-specific Dealer of the Year winners.
