#26656 of 32216 TrueCar.com Web Site Pricing Alert
Feb 12, 2012 (4:45 pm)
Sadly, consumers just took a huge hit. True Car.com was posting new car prices that fit in the market place - and guess what, the general public could purchase a vehicle without a hassle for hundreds less. I bought a new 2011 Honda Accord SE last year using AMEX Zag as a service - then used the price obtained to go back to internet managers to see if they wanted to sweeten their offers. I would hop onto trueCar and noticed they did an about face and actually showed real costs - helping me lower my final price further. Two months ago, I looked at True Car and their prices were hundred of dollars less than Amex Zag.
In one of the latest auto industry papers, true car has appologized to the auto industry and promises to "be a better website "by telling about a dealers services rather than giving a real honest a goodness vehicle price. Sounds like the consumer just took in where the sun doesn't shine on this one - all for the sake of True car ensuring it receives its precious $299 to $399 finders fee it receives per car when it is sold. Sounds like a lose lose for the the consumer and a win win for the dealer and True car.
So, let your friends know don't use Truecar, use other services. If True car really wants to be fakecar or nonconsumer car, that is what they should be stuck with. Boycott them!!! So, Consumers, please boycott trueCar for the foreseeable future. Consumers finally had a fair ally in their hands, but the dealers have to make the thousands on every car or else, they'll have to shut the lights off. TrueCar is sucking up to them - and not the consumer who "pays their fee".Greed is something that has to stop. Say no to TRUECAR! If you use them now, you are paying too much! Cars.com works just as good now, if you like buying yourself.

Please understand that using another web based auto buying service is a personal suggestion. I suggest that consumers can learn first hand about TRUECAR's issues by reading the AUTOMOTIVE NEWS, Feb 6, 2012 edition. The article about TrueCar starts on the front page, goes to Page 3, then page 63.

Low mileage... is it certified ?
I think Metro Honda, Jersey City have many certified used cars and better price than Staten Island Honda.
#26659 of 32216 Should I buy Accord 2012 or Camry 2012
Feb 15, 2012 (9:20 pm)
I am looking for a new car in Chicago area. Should I buy Accord LX-P or Toyota Camry (equivalent model). I am disappointed to know that Accord does not give blue-tooth as standard feature for some reason. Due to recent regulation, it is kind of must and good safety feature. Please give your advise.

If you want Bluetooth in your Accord, you have two options. 1) Get an EX-L level if you want it integrated or 2) have an after-market system installed such as the one from Parrot
I'm sure that the new 2013 Accord will follow Toyota and Hyundai in having it as a standard feature. Remember that those models are new and thus have it across their entire lineup where the Accord is on the last year of the current model.
We purchased a Camry as the Accord was too too expensive at the time and we didn't need the leather and sunroof. Would have been a waste just to have bluetooth and wanted something integrated. Now I am actually enjoying the Camry more as the engine feels like it has more torque compared to the Accord.

#26662 of 32216 should i buy the security system for an accord from the dealer for $500?
Feb 17, 2012 (11:27 pm)
I know about the dealers who try to rip you off after you negotiate a deal with their add ons. But I really think the security feature must be there as an add-on right? Please let me know about this please. Thank you!!!
