if we generate thousands of pages for all the makes and models in our db,  how to best optimize those pages so we can achieve better search engine saturation and link popularity?  we also want to generate thousands of web pages with the contact info of all the auto dealers . Doing this creates MORE original content on our websites(s), which should also improve our search engine rankings.
We can also have news RSS automobile news feeds on our web sites to give us more content.  What works in this area and what not?

>we generate thousands of pages for all the makes and models in our db,

What is the purpose of this website?

>how to best optimize those pages so we can achieve better search engine saturation and link popularity?

Treat the make and model as your keywords and optimize each page for those keywords. For links you will need to write content that people will want to link to.

>Doing this creates MORE original content on our websites(s), which should also improve our search engine rankings.

Yes but don't confuse generating pages with adding content. It's the quality and the originality of the content that is important.

>We can also have news RSS automobile news feeds on our web sites to give us more content.

Personally I never view RSS feeds on sites as quality content and only use them if there is a definite plus for the user.  It's better to be an RSS supplier than an RSS consumer :)

>What works in this area and what not?

Quality original content.

In a competitive sector like this the first thing I would do is a very thorough competitor analysis. Identify the competitors and determine their relative success on various search terms and the important differentiating factors.

My gut feeling though is that you are right to be thinking in terms of adding indexable content in the form of "pages for all the makes and models".  So when you are looking at competitors 'differentiating factors' as far as content is concerned look not only at the amount but also the quality and structure. Then your analysis will give you a good feel for what you need to do and then you can add your own ideas to make it better.
