REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 12, 2006 -- Dealix Corporation, the market expert and leader in automotive Internet marketing services and a division of The Cobalt Group, Inc., is honoring the nation's top Internet sales professionals of 2005.

That's why they've been such a key driver in our Internet sales success."
