Dealer API

Page Content


The Dealer API is comprised of a collection of resources that provide access to an array of datasets related directly to the automotive dealership.

Please note that dealer inventories aren’t available in this API. They are available in the Inventory API.

If you haven’t yet, this might be a good time to read the API Overview page to familiarize yourself with some of the core concepts required to using the API.

Quick Start

Let’s get right to it, shall we? Here’s a few REST calls that should get you started using the API with ease. You could copy and paste these calls into your browser, add your API key to them and then press ENTER! Better yet, you could use our API Console to make live API calls of your own. Once you’re comfortable with these calls, you should think about downloading our Javascript SDK. It will make your development life with the Edmunds API much easier :)

Example 1: Get a list of all dealerships within 10 miles from 90019 that sell or service Hondas

https://api.edmunds.com/api/dealer/v2/dealers?zipcode=90019&make=honda&radius=10&fmt=json&api_key={your API key}

Example 2: Get a dealership 5 most recent sales and service consumer ratings and reviews by the dealer ID

https://api.edmunds.com/v1/api/drrrepository/getdrrbydealerid?dealerid=26643&limit=0%2C5&fmt=json&api_key={your API key}
