How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Thank you for your interest in our CarBargains service. We believe our one-of-a-kind service is, as hundreds of customers have told us, "the only way to buy a new car.''

Before you place your order with CarBargains, please read our overview. Below, we provide answers to our customers' most common questions.

EB Writes: "Because I'm a bit of a skeptic...I have been doing my own online research. I have also contacted other buying services from organizations that I belong to (USAA, MVCP, and UBS). None of my research or the other (free to me) services produced the results that CarBargains did..."

Our price comparisons of local auto insurers reveal dramatic company-to-company rate differences—several hundred dollars a year for most consumers, and several thousand dollars for many. And you don’t have to forsake service for a better rate.

When shopping for insurance, many drivers care about more than just cost, and with good reason: If you have a claim, you want it to paid quickly and get back on the road with minimal hassle. We provide ratings of insurers for claims-handling service.

Unlike the law in most states, California law bars insurers from using factors like credit scores, gender, education, homeownership, and secretive info to set their rates. Instead, companies are required to give the greatest weight in determining rates to three factors: how long you’ve been driving, your driving record, and how much you drive each year. Beyond these factors, companies are allowed to use other factors to set their rates (we describe many of them below), but the average weight of secondary factors must not exceed the weight given to the primary factors in the company’s premium calculations.
