The Consumer Reports Build & Buy Car Buying Service (the "Service") is provided to Consumer Reports subscribers by TrueCar.com. TrueCar operates the Service’s dealer network and the Service’s website. Consumers Union collects a fee from TrueCar for vehicles purchased from a TrueCar dealer. Consumers Union applies these fees to fund our testing programs. Consumers Union has no financial relationship with any dealer.
Neither Consumers Reports nor TrueCar brokers, sells, or leases motor vehicles. Each TrueCar Certified Dealer will confirm actual vehicle availability from in-stock inventory, including options and color choices.
The Service may not be available in your particular location.
* Between 7/1/13 and 9/30/13, the average estimated savings off MSRP presented by TrueCar Certified Dealers to users of the Consumer Reports Build & Buy Car Buying Service, based on users who configured virtual vehicles and subsequently purchased a new vehicle of the same make and model listed on the certificate from Certified Dealers, was $2,919, including applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives. Your actual savings may vary based on multiple factors including the vehicle you select, region, dealer, and applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives which are subject to change. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (“MSRP”) is determined by the manufacturer, and may not reflect the price at which vehicles are generally sold in the dealer’s trade area as not all vehicles are sold at MSRP. Each dealer sets its own pricing. Your actual purchase price is negotiated between you and the dealer. Neither TrueCar nor Consumer Reports sells or leases motor vehicles.
** Upfront pricing information and guaranteed savings not available in all states. In these states, a "Target Price" is presented, which reflects a market-based example of what you can reasonable expect to pay for a vehicle with your desired options. Savings is guaranteed by the dealer and not Consumer Reports or TrueCar.
† To get your $25 gift card, take a test drive at a participating dealer for a vehicle where you have requested a Certificate, answer a few survey questions, and get a $25 gift card. See your Certificate for additional redemption details.
