As most people have experienced first-hand, purchasing a car is a stressful undertaking. Even if you know exactly what kind of car you’re looking for, all the negotiating with a car dealer can be an exhausting process. Enter TrueCar.

What Is TrueCar?

TrueCar is an automotive pricing and information website that links car buyers to a network of more than 16,000 certified car dealers. Rather than trusting the advice and pricing of one dealership, you’re able to compare statistics and pricing at dealerships across the country. By the end of 2019, 2 million car purchases had already been made throughtruecar.com, but the company wanted to continue to better itself. In January, TrueCar redesigned its website to update its used car marketplace, streamline the buying process and add helpful tools for car buyers who aren’t quite sure what they are looking for.

Research Your Car

Upon visiting the TrueCar website, you’re prompted to select what you’re shopping for (a new vehicle ora used one), or you can find out the value of your current vehicle. Next, you can easily select makes, models and options, plus compare different vehicles. You can also learn about available incentives, check crash safety ratings, read reviews, view photo galleries and more.

Learn What Others Paid

Once you’ve selected your dream car, free TrueCar price reports are available with national, regional and local data. TrueCar reveals what others have paid for a car with the same features so you know if you’re getting a good deal.

AAA Members Save

TrueCar has partnered with several reputable organizations including AAA. You can take advantage of our guaranteed member savings on new cars or view dealer-guaranteed prices on used cars before even visiting the dealership. Simply choose your vehicle, agree to a price and pick it up at the dealership. No cost. No obligation.
