Best New Car buying Websites

Post by Gary Guss » Wed Mar 13, 2019 10:26 pm

I have a car in mind, I'm trying to get an idea of what I should offer dealer.. straight up cash deal with no trade.. Anyone used any car buying web sites with success or is it just a feed to get a bunch of calls from dealers.. Looking at Kia Niro LX 2019.. Tried Truecar, and got about 11 cagey type phone calls and emails but no price info..

I have found cars.com useful for both new and used.

I had success using truecar. I would use a throwaway email and Google voice number and engage them until they give their best out the door price. Once I have that, I will make them compete each other until I get the lowest cost.
This is not legal or certified financial advice but you know that already.

Isn't any car buying website just going to connect you with dealers anyway?
