The Best No-Haggle Prices on 2012 Models

May 3, 2012

Using the TrueCar Pricing Tool, I did a search for the largest discounts currently being offered on 2012 models.

There are over 5,000 dealerships providing pre-negotiated prices through TrueCar, oftentimes offering rock-bottom prices (although you should still try to negotiate lower).

Some dealers are actually offering vehicles for below cost, hoping to make up the revenue by selling add-ons such as extended warranties. Other dealers, feeling threatened, are trying to shut down TrueCar through legislation that prohibits them from doing business in their State.

This is actually a good sign for buyers. It shows that TrueCar does provide deals that are eating away dealer profits.

Here are the largest discounts I was able to find with a quick search in Southern California:
