More than 70% of vehicles in the United Arab Emirates are over three years old, which means that the great majority of the nation’s car owners are continually searching for car portals in which to buy and sell vehicles, find spare parts and competent mechanics, or just talk about the problems they are experiencing with their cars.
Even though the UAE has embraced the usage of social media to an extensive degree, many car owners with particular vehicle requirements still have to search for specialised car portals.
Friends are rarely experts on cars, many car businesses are poorly versed in issues related to motor vehicles, and online searches tend not to be specific to the GCC.
There are a variety of common reasons as to why users sign up to the likes of Carnity in the UAE, according to a recent survey.
36% joined the portal to search out car problems and their solutions, while 22% wanted to talk about buying a new car with industry experts, and 18% were looking for competent car businesses.
14% wanted to learn or get to drive in an off-road club, while just 10% actually used the portal to look for vehicles that were for sale online.
According to Amazon company statistics via Alexa, Carnity is at the top spot in the top 10 most engaging car portals in the UAE with 25 page/user.
Dubizzle is in second place with 10 page/user, and Yzermotors is in third place with 7 page/user.
The remainder of the top 10 are Dubaicars.com at both fourth and fifth place, Getthat.com in sixth, Drivearabia.com in seventh, Yallamotor.com in eighth, Autotraderuae.com in ninth, and Motoraty.com at number ten.
