Some stuff our marketing team thought we should mention:
• 97% of TrueCar users who purchased a car from a Certified Dealer would recommend to others. (That's pretty cool.)
• Over 3,000,000 cars sold by TrueCar Certified Dealers to our members.
Some stuff the lawyers wanted us to mention:
* Guaranteed Savings represents the amount that a TrueCar Certified Dealer selected by you guarantees that you will save off the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") on any in-stock vehicle that is the same make, model, and trim as your Ideal Vehicle. The Guaranteed Savings is based on a vehicle without factory or dealer installed options and includes generally available manufacturer incentives.
** Between 7/1/16 and 9/30/16, the average estimated savings off MSRP presented by TrueCar Certified Dealers to users of TrueCar powered websites, based on users who configured virtual vehicles and who TrueCar identified as purchasing a new vehicle of the same make and model listed on the certificate from a Certified Dealer as of 10/31/2016, was $3,106. Your actual savings may vary based on multiple factors including the vehicle you select, region, dealer, and applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives which are subject to change. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") is determined by the manufacturer, and may not reflect the price at which vehicles are generally sold in the dealer's trade area as not all vehicles are sold at MSRP. Each dealer sets its own pricing. Your actual purchase price is negotiated between you and the dealer. TrueCar does not sell or lease motor vehicles.

Ratings and Reviews
I’m happy to say I’m not one of the people who’s been attacked by hungry car dealers just for having launched the app, but I’m not happy to say that the app has been rendered useless by the developers in their efforts to make it look like there are lots of cars that match your search, no matter how specific your search may be. In fact, there are not lots of cars that match your search no matter how specific your search may be; the developers of this app have simply opted to ignore all of your search parameters except make and model in their efforts to bombard you with a ridiculous number of vehicles instead of the three or four or six that would be returned were your search parameters respected. My search tonight for a black Chrysler 300 S with all wheel drive, less than 30K miles, and no older than 2015 returned about 50 cars, as old as 2008, some with over 90,000 miles on them, most with rear wheel drive, and few of them black. A note at the top of the search results said that all these cars were “close matches“ and that I could adjust my search to return more results – but there is no way to have the search return *fewer* results, because my search parameters are ignored every time. I used TrueCar to buy my last Chrysler 300, but I certainly won’t be using it to buy any car in the future, ever.
HI plaintiger, we want to apologize for the experience you had. We're sorry to hear that the filters weren't working, and it sounds like you might have encountered a bug. We want to work on looking into this and get it resolved for you. If you don't mind, please contact us at: email@example.com.
Phone calls won’t stop
Like others have said, this app is advertised as a new way to buy a car with less hassle. It should make it clearer to users that dealers will call them despite asking for email contact only.
The idea behind this app is great, and I like the ability to see inventory on dealer lots. But the phone calls kill the purpose.
I downloaded the app about a month ago and clicked through to see the price on a car, suddenly my phone blows up with calls and texts and voicemails. These eventually slowed as the date on the offer passed. Yesterday I completed a survey in my email from truecar asking how my experience was. I filled that out and boom the phone calls start again.
This app needs to be clear that dealers will get all your contact info, despite your preferences.
If I could leave a zero star rating I would, and if I could redo the survey I would give a terrible rating. Better yet, don’t fill out the survey because they turn around and tell the dealers to contact you again!
HI Kraig, we appreciate your feedback and want to apologize for the number of phone calls you've received. We want to help you find your next car, which means that we provide local dealers that might have the vehicle you want in stock with your information. We can work on letting them know that you're not interested. Just give our Customer Service team a call at: (888) 878-3227.
Very helpful research tool
This has helped me greatly in pricing research for my car buying search as well as seeing what amenities are available for the cars I’m looking into. Pictures and stats. And when I have time to answer 4-8 emails I can check pricing in my area and see who’s offering decent prices and who’s marking the car up exponentially. It’s very helpful for someone who is actually trying to buy a car. It can also be a great tool for finding out what is in stock near you. And what is impossible to find. Also when certain cars will become available. But be warned if you ask for the specific pricing near you the dealers are notified of your interest and you will receive a few emails. How ever many dealers there are near you that you received pricing for.
Hello, and thank you for the kind words! We're very happy you had a great experience with the app. If you have any questions or more feedback, feel free to contact us at: (888) 878-3227.
