What CarBargains Customers Are Saying
E.B. writes: Because I'm a bit of a skeptic (and you have a guarantee that says that if I can beat the prices that you found, I can get my fee back from you), 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. My own negotiations and "internet" pricing was pathetic compared to what you found...Now I'm a believer. We will definitely recommend you to friends and use your services again.
W.K. writes: Thank you so very much. We took delivery of our vehicle today through your best quote dealer. Your deal was $1000 below invoice and $2000 below the best quote that we were getting on our own. You saved us $2000. I have been recommending your service to all my friends and relatives.
Consumer Maven writes: Unless you are an aggressively objective shopper, you should absolutely [buy the CarBargains service] before completing a new car purchase. It could easily pay for itself just in the savings you will realize on dealer-installed options. (Read full blog entry.)
J.R. writes: It was a real pleasure working with your staff. I dislike the car buying process. I'm glad CarBargains takes a lot of the pain out of buying a new car.
J.D. writes: I just wanted to let you know that [the dealership] honored their CarBargains bid of $1,000 below invoice on a Ford Focus. I've used CarBargains multiple times and think it is a great service.
P.M. writes: Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how pleased we are with your service...It was so nice not to have to go through all the haggling that is normally part of buying a new car! Completely stress-free. We will certainly be happy to recommend CarBargains to our friends.
S.L. writes: Thanks so much for helping us find our new 2008 Sienna...It saved so much time. I was able to buy my car for $750 below invoice and receive a $1000 rebate from Toyota. I will definitely use your service again and I have already recommended it to my friends.
R.B. writes: I would like to thank you for your CarBargains service. It was the most efficient and cost-effective way of buying a car. I will definitely do it again when I buy my next car. Thanks you.
R.D. writes: I just wanted to say that the Consumers' Checkbook car buyers help was all the advertisement promised. I purchased a 2008 Prius from the nearest dealer with the lowest bid price. All the time spent with the dealer was just in filling out paperwork. No pressure for dealer add-ons. From our first encounter with a salesperson, before having the CarBargains report, I figure we saved about $2000.
K.A. writes: Thanks so much for the report. We bought our car last Saturday and were really pleased with how easy it was to get a great price. The purchase experience was cheerful and smooth.
R.S. writes: I just wanted to let you know that I bought my Honda Accord on Saturday. I would never have been able to get the price on my own that CarBargains was able to negotiate for me. I am telling all my friends about your service. I am most appreciative of the money you saved me on my purchase. Thank you so much.
B.F. writes: Thanks for your help. Great service. I have recommended this to a friend who will be purchasing a new vehicle soon.
E.F. writes: I purchased my vehicle from the low bidder in your report. I was pleased to have been introduced to a dealer with whom I otherwise would not have been in contact. Many thanks for your time and assistance.
D.D. writes: I wanted to let you know that I received your report on a Friday, met with the lowest cost dealer on the following Tuesday, and ordered my car...having your report with me made the whole transaction stress free. I feel that I received a fair price on the car and the people at the dealership were a pleasure to deal with. Thank you!
A.B. writes: The information was wonderful. I was able to get the car last Saturday at 4% below the dealer's invoice, as stated in your report. It was really easy and I didn't have to haggle or fight with anyone...
M.R. writes: I recently used the CarBargains service for the second time in four years and once again, my experience was excellent. My purchase was a 2007 Toyota RAV4, the top-rated small SUV this year. I paid $100 over dealer invoice after receiving ten very competitive bids. This is what sets CarBargains apart from other online buying services and the dealer sales managers know it.
D.M. writes: Thanks for your excellent service. I didn't have to haggle and I got a great price on a car. You saved me about $800.
B.H. writes: I would like to thank you for your work in quoting my purchase of a Toyota Sienna XLE. I was pleasantly surprised by how competitive the pricing was. I just want to let you and your associates know I am very impressed with the professionalism and service you have provided me. I did not expect to obtain such competitive quotes. I contacted the lowest-priced dealer and placed a factory order. It just proves how effective your process is for consumers. I will certainly recommend your service to friends and come back again for future purchases.
B.W. writes: Thank you. I will use you in the future and recommend this service to my friends.
M.B. writes: I have completed a purchase of a new F150 Supercrew. I was extremely pleased with the process of the shopping/bidding by the dealerships for my patronage. It is well worth the cost of your service. I would definitely recommend CarBargains to others.
G.D. writes: We just purchased a Ford F-150 based upon the excellent bid you got us, and we were very pleased with the transaction. The dealership stood by their bid and didn't hassle us. I would recommend the CarBargains service.
T.C. writes: Thanks very much for the CarBargains report. We found the vehicle we wanted and had no problems getting the quote honored. The model is tough to find and most everyone who had one wanted full MSRP or more, so it seems we saved about $3500. Having the CarBargains report certainly made the process more enjoyable!
J.S. writes: Thanks you very much. I had a very nice experience utilizing your service. The winning dealer was very forthright and performed as promised. I believe I got a very nice price on a new model.
J.A. writes: Thanks you for the report you sent last week for my VW Jetta. I had a wonderful buying experience.
H.B. writes: I can’t tell you enough how pleased I have been with this service. The materials you sent were well organized, easy to understand, and incredibly helpful. I followed the process you all outlined, it worked like a charm, and I got a very good price on my new BMW without any hassle, negotiation, etc. Thank you! I will definitely recommend this service to my friends.
M.R. writes: I just purchased a Honda CR-V at $450 over published cost, thanks to CarBargains. My representative faced a local market that often marked up the vehicle above MSRP. Thanks to his perseverance and professionalism, I was able to work with a dealer I wouldn’t have thought of but would use again and recommend to our friends. I wouldn’t have any hesitation using your service again, and I’ve already recommended it to several friends.
J.A. writes: WOW! Just saved $1,800 today and walked away with a clean transaction. Everything and more than promised. This is my eighth new car purchase and I only wish I had used it before. I came home with cash in my pocket and no headaches, literally and figuratively. Truly a bargain.
D.R. writes: Just wanted to give some positive feedback on your great car-buying service. My local Lexus dealer would only give me $1500 off of MSRP on an LS430, but through your service I bought the car at nearly $7,000 off MSRP. Thanks very much!
R.L. writes: Thanks for your help in educating me on what I should be paying for my new Lexus RX330. I did place an order with one of the dealers you worked with and I saved around $2,000 on the deal. Thanks again.
S.Y. writes: Thanks! That was super fast! One dealer’s quote was $500 lower than the second lowest bid. We called that dealer, went in the same day, and purchased the car we wanted with no haggling and no hassles. Worth as much as saving the extra money was saving the aggravation of negotiating and knowing we were getting the best possible value.
T.C. writes: You were right. CarBargains is the way to go. I saved a bunch of money and it was so easy dealing with the contact you listed. We both knew the score. Only way I’ll ever buy a vehicle. Thanks much CarBargains.
R.D. writes: Thank you for the wonderful service you provided. I am amazed at how well you performed…you saved me $1,400 off the next best price on my new VW Jetta GLS I negotiated locally…wow! No hassles, the salesman did exactly as he represented in the bid and I couldn’t be more pleased. This is the first time EVER I have enjoyed the car buying experience…there’s nothing like a little knowledge and competition to change the process and outcome of buying a car.
D.R. writes: Thank you very much. The best bid of $1300 under invoice is far better than I expected. Your service is unbeatable.
S.K. writes: I wouldn't buy another car without your service. I saved $1,857. No haggling!
S.P. writes: Your knowledge of marketing and the factory-to-dealer rebate obviously saved us at least $1,400.
M.F. writes: It took all the pain out of the purchase of a car and resulted in my paying several hundred dollars less than I had quoted to me from an independent car broker.
C.K. writes: In a word, "terrific." The CarBargains concept has extreme value and for the amount of time and effort saved, the cost is minuscule.
M.L. writes: I got the exact same car I bought three years ago and this one cost less.
B.B. writes: I didn't have to do any negotiating. Yet I know that I probably got the best deal possible in this area.
M.A. writes: I asked for the convenience of a local dealer, since I am a widow and location and service were important factors. The CarBargains service was of great help and gave me the information and confidence to buy a car without the usual hassles.
