  eCarList opens access to its award-winning iPhone app to all automotive dealers; provides free
                   TrueTarget Mobile service to all Carfax subscribing dealers

Dallas, TX and Centreville, VA, January 19, 2011 – eCarList, one of the fastest-growing
automotive software companies, has teamed with Carfax to provide free access to eCarList’s
innovative TrueTarget Mobile app. TrueTarget Mobile makes it easy for automotive dealers to
appraise, price and merchandise vehicles directly from their mobile phone. Dealers better
understand the market when acquiring vehicles and price their inventory to sell faster and more
effectively.

TrueTarget Mobile, which was recently named the most innovative dealership solution of the year,
includes integration of retail pricing and vehicle history information from Carfax. Access to the
mobile app was previously limited to dealers who subscribe to eCarList’s inventory management
solution, but is now available to all automotive dealers and provided at no additional cost to dealers
who have an active Carfax account.

“Dealers want anytime access to Carfax Vehicle History Reports,” said Dick Raines, president of
Carfax. “Having this information at your fingertips during acquisition and retail helps our customers
maximize profitability. TrueTarget Mobile is a convenient tool that broadens access to Carfax
information and makes a dealer’s job simpler.”

With TrueTarget Mobile, dealerships can accurately appraise and price vehicles utilizing Carfax
Vehicle History Reports, current pricing data from online vehicle marketing websites, and
optionally access integrated pricing data from wholesale books. The app allows dealers to filter,
organize and view the data geographically and flag pricing from competitive dealerships for the
most relevant pricing assessment of each vehicle.

“Carfax Vehicle History Reports are critical to an accurate vehicle appraisal and without this trusted
information, dealers cannot effectively appraise, price and merchandise vehicles. We are proud that
TrueTarget Mobile is not only being offered for free to Carfax subscribers, but that it is also the first
and only mobile product to provide users with free access to the most valuable data from leading
retail marketing websites,” said Len Critcher, CEO of eCarList. “Our mission is to make it easy
and cost-effective for dealerships to fully own and control the vehicle merchandising process. We
are pleased that we can now provide this tool at no cost to Carfax-subscribing dealers.”
