Discover, buy, sell or trade new or used cars with TrueCar—the car buying app that lets you see what others paid and get an upfront price before you even step foot on a Dealer's lot.
Our TrueCar Certified Dealers are committed to giving you upfront, discounted prices on every new vehicle they have in-stock—including fees, accessory costs and incentives.
Real Car Reviews From Actual People
Want to know how the vehicle handles? What the stereo sounds like at high speeds? Whether it's "roomy" enough to fit a medium-sized family or a larger-than-average sized dog? We've got you. TrueCar has over 1 million ratings and reviews written by verified vehicle owners. All opinions are owner-generated and come from surveys filled out by people who have purchased a specific make and model of car or truck. Whatever you're shopping for, we have owner-generated reviews for it.
Car Pricing and Market Context
We're here to uncomplicate car-buying for you, to make it easy, so you’re confident you're going to get the right price on a car or truck you love. We provide market data derived from over 2 million sales transactions per year across our network of Dealerships nationwide and display it in an easy-to-read "curve" data visualization that lets you know a fair price for any new car or truck. Because of the curve, our Dealers price their vehicles competitively so they won't lose your business.
A Real Price on the Car You Want
Getting "the price" is probably the hardest part of car-buying. And when we say "the price" we mean that single number that the Dealer is willing to sell the car for—including all the add-ons, features and accessories that make a car worth driving around in. With TrueCar, you can get that price on the car you're shopping for before you even visit the Dealership. You can also get access to upfront price offers on the rest of a Dealer's in-stock inventory when you register. No fuss, no weird math that doesn't make sense, just "the price."
Guaranteed Savings and Incentives
When you use TrueCar, our Certified Dealers are dedicated to honoring the price they offer through TrueCar—which includes all the incentives that you qualify for bundled together to get you the maximum amount of upfront savings on a car or truck. On average, TrueCar users save $3,383* off of the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP), famously known as the "sticker price."
Some Stuff the Lawyers Wanted Us to Mention
* Between 7/1/17 and 9/30/17, the average 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 10/31/2017, was $3,383. 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
Phone calls wont stop!!!!!!
Just awful and I don’t even understand how this level of harassment is even legal in 2018. Basically what happens is that after you just view a car and I mean it (just viewing), they will send your phone number to numerous dealerships and trust me that they wont stop calling and emailing you, even after you remove the car from the apps menu they even tell you that you will continue to receive calls and emails, there is no way out out of this that I could find and ( I’m even in the do not call registry ).... apparently they don't even share the databases with the dealerships.
There was a time at the very beginning when they truly care about the customer, now they just blatantly and with no apparent way out just give out your personal info, how is that for a balanced scale between the dealerships and the car seeker, this is even horrible for the dealerships imo as i pretty much blacklisted them all from my current and future car purchasing experience and now they wont be getting my business....
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!

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.
