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.

Phone calls won’t stop

Kraig R

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!

Do NOT sign-up-Beware of scam

Angrybaldman107

Last year I used this app which was pleasant and helpful. I was able to research cars without the dealership squawk and hassle. When I found the vehicle I was interested in, I could request to be contacted by that one dealership selling that vehicle. I actually ended up purchasing the car I found on TrueCar.

Now, needing to replace our other vehicle, I logged on today to do some research and discovered that True Car has totally changed. Within ONE minute of logging on, three car dealerships had blown up my phone with calls.

So, I am deleting the app and complaining to my Credit Union to stop using them. True Car is not what it once was and is now being used as an opportunistic tool for dealerships to find customers, instead of existing as a consumer resource to find a vehicle. Today, it seemed as True Car has been transformed into a major scam!

Thank you, Apple App Store, for the warnings

Jlwhitten

First, I know this review is not going to be read by the App Store. That was sarcasm. It will be read by its intended audience, potential users if the app.

After reading these reviews, I’ve deleted this app without ever using it. Your reviews revealed a troubling theme of users’ getting spammed mercilessly by dealer phone calls. In essence, the app exposes users to the very thing its users are trying to avoid.

There is also a disturbing theme in the developers’ responses to these dealer phone calls complaints. They all say, we will contact the dealers and tell them to stop calling you. First, they cannot deliver on that promise. Dealers maintain their own call contact lists, and those lists are their lifeblood. My experience suggests that it takes an act of God to get yourself off such lists. Second, why should you have to do this at all? The app professes to changing the car buying experience, but too many users report the exact opposite. Based on reviews, the app developer does not appear to present a better experience over dealing with a few dealers on your own.

I’ll end as I started. Thank you App Store for publishing these app reviews. I hate unsolicited sales calls. And it looks like you saved me from that hell.

Developer Response

Hi Jlwhitten, we want to apologize for the experiences you read about before you had the opportunity to use our app. We want all of our users to have a great experience searching for new cars. We try to help potential car buyers find the cars they are interested in by putting them in direct contact with local dealers. These dealers are trusted and certified by TrueCar, and are only provided user's information because they might have a particular vehicle in stock. We hope that you can give our app a chance and use it to search for a new car in the future.
