Top TrueCar: The Car Buying App Reviews

    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.

    Made my car buying experience simple

    I stumbled upon this app when I began my search in Christmas Day. What an amazing find. I was able to comparison shop a variety of makes and dealers and felt that it was an honest representation of what was available in my area. Yes I was contacted by salespeople, both by phone and email, but that’s to be expected. I stuck all the emails into a “car dealers” sub folder to go over later. While I was out dealing with something else, an email came in from one of the TrueCar certified dealers with an offer on my dream car that was significantly below what I was considering that I would have been stupid not to take it. Since I was paying cash, there was no haggling about financing. I test drove the vehicle the following day and did all the paperwork. Since the vehicle had to be brought from another dealership, I was able to pick it up the day after. I am so thrilled to have found this app. I recommended it to an out-of-State friend who used it to find a car for his wife.

    Limited utility - minimal discounts and no way to browse without triggering dealer hell

    Yesterday I tried this from the web and from the app. 1) Lease - basically no function to support leasing, only sales price. 2) Discounts on 3 different models I tried were exceedingly minimal. VW GTI $600 discount from msrp, Chevrolet Volt $1200 discount from msrp, Chevrolet Camaro SS about $1000. In their defense I imagine this might limit “junk” fees that some dealers like to charge to offset an advertised low price. 3) There is no way to browse around dealerships and look for bargains without triggering “dealer hell” where you get repeated calls and emails from sales to sales managers. I immediately contacted each dealer and apologized and indicated I accidentally triggered this while browsing. Some continued to press the issue. In the past, I’ve examined dealer inventory and emailed them with a detailed lease proposal using the actual money factor, mileage, residual, cap cost, tax, doc fee, and registration costs including incentives and have gotten good traction on a low cost deal. I was hoping I could use TrueCar to achieve the same goal more elegantly, but this appears to be more a tool for sales leads than a way to functional savings on a new car for the end user.
