TrueCar is a free service that helps car buyers connect with our network of over 10,000 new car dealers across the U.S. Each TrueCar Certified Dealer is committed to providing upfront pricing information for every vehicle on the lot – including full disclosure of any hidden costs or fees – as part of a hassle-free car buying experience for TrueCar members. The TrueCar car buying app provides tools to understand the current market price for brand new cars and trucks in your local area, and helps you understand the Guaranteed Savings* being offered by each TrueCar Certified Dealer. The app also includes a tool that reveals the TrueCar Price from any window sticker while on a TrueCar Certified Dealer's lot.
This should help you understand what we're about:
• A service designed to facilitate new car buying without hassle or stress.
• See what others paid in your local area and compare that to the TrueCar Estimate.
• Get Guaranteed Savings buying from a TrueCar Certified Dealer (an average of $3,221 off MSRP!!)**
• Access to dealers committed to price transparency with upfront prices on every new car in stock.
• Know which salesperson to ask for to make sure you get the TrueCar hassle-free buying experience.
• No surprises, hidden fees or "extras" baked into your deal – you always know how much you should pay.
• Scan window sticker barcodes, or simply enter the last 5 digits of the VIN to get the TrueCar Price while on the lot.
• No pressure to make a decision or stress over negotiating the price.
• Easily configure and save your ideal vehicle with your favorite options, colors and the very latest manufacturer incentives.
• Get competitive price estimates for the new car you desire from up to three TrueCar Certified Dealers.
• Receive offers on in-stock vehicles within 24 hours of engaging with your dealer.
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 1,300,000 cars sold by TrueCar Certified Dealers to our members.
• Members buying with TrueCar have saved more than $1 billion off MSRP.
Some stuff the lawyers wanted us to mention:
* Guaranteed Savings currently not available in all states. In these instances, a "Target Price" is presented, which is not an advertised price, but an example of what you can reasonably expect to pay for a vehicle with your preferred options. 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 4/1/14 and 6/30/14, 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 subsequently purchased a new vehicle of the same make and model listed on the certificate from Certified Dealers, was $3,221, including applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives. 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.

No prices without violating privacy.
When you actually go to look up local prices, you have to create an account, and your personal info will be sent to local dealers, the most notorious of legal spammers/harassers. Account creation is in 2 steps, the 1st being minimal so you feel more comfortable, and the 2nd more extensive because you are more likely to give up more personal info if you have already started. Even if you only created the account (1st step), you will start getting related email. Then there is no obvious way to delete tour account. You can only "sign out".
I saved over $1800 because of TrueCar
I saved over $1800 because of TrueCar. I went to dealer website picked out car, compared exact specs with TrueCar in my area, printed out, went to dealer and they grudgingly gave me $1800 off. All without entering any personal info on in TrueCar or dealer site.
THIS APP IS BASICALLY SPAM
So I'm a car dealer and I wanted to check out this app to see what it does for people and how to keep a competitive edge on the market. It has about 3 options as to what you can do.. It's load times are slow because it has to upload ALL vehicle decals, AND if it's not a 2015 it doesn't work. Waste of downloading time. Crappy app, I could just google the same results and it would be faster and easier. AND I wouldn't be stuck with ONLY the 2015 model year.
