Managing Your Edmunds Account

Creating an Account

Registering to become a member of Edmunds grants you access to additional features on our site, including the ability to post comments on Edmunds articles, post messages in the Forums, and to write reviews for Dealers.

Registration is free and requires little more than your name and a valid email address. To begin the process, go to the "Sign In" page and click on "Register."

After you complete the registration form, click the blue "Register" button again to send us your information.

Shortly afterward, an activation link will be sent to the email address you entered. Click the activation link contained in that email to finish the registration process and activate your account. (Note: you may need to check your email program's spam or junk folder in case this email gets misfiled.)

Screen Name (or Username)

As a part of the registration process, you will be asked to create a “screen name” (or username). Your screen name is unique to you and will appear with any content or reviews you post.

In any online community, it is important to keep a consistent identity; therefore, screen names cannot be changed once selected.

Signing In

Once you have an account, go to the "Sign In" page and enter the email address and password you used to create the account.  Also, if you are posting a comment to an article, review, or in Edmunds Forums, clicking on "Sign In" will enable the log in screen.

Forgot Password

If you’ve forgotten your password, click the "Forgot Password?" link (highlighted in the example below) and then enter the email address you used when registering. You will receive an email with instructions on how to reset your password. (Note: you may need to check your email program's spam or junk folder in case this email gets misfiled.)


If you cannot remember the email address you originally registered with or last had on file, please do not create a new account but click here to submit a request for assistance.

Signing Out

If you are viewing our site on a public computer or one that is used by other people, we suggest signing out at the end of your visit. To do this, return to "Sign In" and click on "Sign Out" at the top of the page.
