In August of 2018, we updated our forums login system to leverage our new Edmunds.com Insider system. Please follow the instructions below to get set up in the forums.
Scenario A: I don't yet have an Insider account associated with my email address (and I'm either new to the forums, or haven't signed in since August 2018)
No problem! We need to get you signed up for Insider.
Step 1: Click the Sign Up or Register button shown next to the purple arrow below
Step 2: Enter the email address you use for forums in the box
Step 3: Click Sign Up with Email
Step 4: You'll be asked to enter your name and choose a password - the minimum requirement for Insider is 7 characters, so you will have to select a new password if your existing password is shorter. Your first/last name won't be visible to anyone except you.
Step 5: If you have previously posted in the forums, your existing screen name will merge automatically, and you'll be directed to forums as usual. If you have NOT previously posted in the forums, you will be directed to a screen to select a unique screen name that will be associated with your forums posts.
Scenario B: I already have an Insider account associated with my email address (and I'm either new to the forums, or haven't signed in since August 2018)
Great! Simply choose the Sign In option from the pop-up (outlined in purple below), and your screen name and/profile will be merged.
If you have any issues, please contact us.
