CarWoo Offers Free Negotiation Service
There's a new tool that's making car price negotiation much easier for consumers.
It's called CarWoo, a site where dealers compete to offer the lowest price on new cars.
And the best part - you remain anonymous through the entire process. No phone calls or emails from dealers, everything is done online.
Until recently, CarWoo was charging $49 for the service - and we thought it was well worth the price. But now they're offering it for free!
We're not sure how long this price drop will last, but if you're currently shopping for a new car, it would be foolish not to try it out.
The negotiation method used by CarWoo is very similar to the one recommended in our step-by-step negotiation guide - it's a proven method that essentially guarantees the lowest price on a new car.
However, our method takes at least 3 to 4 hours to complete, whereas the CarWoo service is automated and takes a fraction of the time. In most cases, you'll receive at least 4 different price offers from local dealers (over 9,000 dealers participate nationwide).
We personally tested the CarWoo service and give it our full endorsement. It was always worth the $49 charge, but now that's it's free - there's no reason not to try it.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
