Roadster Expands Car Buying Service

Last year I reviewed (and recommended) Roadster.com, a new type of car buying service that makes it easy to buy or lease a new car entirely online (only available in California). Car shoppers have been loving the service, and over 120 users have given it a perfect 5 star rating on yelp.

Roadster is now expanding their service by offering it through participating dealers, called Express Storefront. The first two dealers testing the service are Toyota of Marin and Toyota of Sunnyvale, but many more are expected in the coming months.

The great thing about dealers using this service is that you can now see their lowest negotiated price on every single new car in stock (as well as used inventory). No need to call or email the dealerships for pricing, it's all available online, updated as market conditions change.

Another benefit is the ability to review service plans and other options from the comfort of your home - no more spending hours at a dealership. The vehicle you purchase online can be delivered to your home.

I know most of you don't reside near Northern California (where these initial dealers are located), but I really like the Roadster service and want to keep you guys updated on their progress.

If you do end up using the Roadster service, I'd like to hear about your experience.






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
