DealerRater’s Dealer of the Year awards are given each year to car dealerships that have the highest PowerScore™ in their brand category, both at national and state levels. Each dealership’s PowerScore is determined using a Bayesian algorithm that considers the dealership’s average DealerRater star rating (calculated monthly) 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’s web site during the previous calendar year and an average rating greater than 4.0, with 5.0 as the highest possible score.
