Has anyone ever heard of or used this site? A friend of mine bought a new Civic through TrueCar the other day, and he highly recommended it.

I have heard it's an easier way to get invoice pricing on a new vehicle.

Never heard about it but i took a quick look, it seems good to me, best thing to do is check out reviews about it online.

just about any one of these services are much better than walking into a dealership and "buying blind", either way, using this, you're ahead of most.

Buying online gives you a lot more ability to make a decision without the added pressure of a sales person. Can't see any reason why not to use the site.

It helps but then again dealing with a real person might have some perks, like xxxx amount of dollars off of the MSRP.

From what I have gathered over the years MSRP is about 20% markup on Dodge trucks.

I just ran the 4x4 Laramine I'm picking up Monday and it showed that I got a smoking deal! It says I'm paying $200 over the lowest price, I can live with that!

Well I feel like I got a smoking deal then. I had not heard of truecar.com but it shows I was at cost of $46,795 and $53515 MSRP and I paid $45,495 with rebates etc. Sweet...

So, you may have seen my post but just in case;;; MSRP of 50,215 final price of 40,600 only incentive is the 2,500 rebate. I can get 500 more off if I use Chrysler finance.
