Whole sale internet car purchase?

Hello everyone,
I'm in a tire kicking mood and a couple weeks ago a couple members were talking about whole sale vehicle purchases over the internet. I didn't write down names and contact numbers ... wish I had cause now I can't find the thread.

Any help appreciated.

It keeps changing but today interested in GMC Canyon / Chevy Colorado. Any comments?

Thank you ahead,
Tom

In terms of reliability and performance - I would recommend Consumer Reports (plus a grain of salt)

And

New (or used) cars lowest price. New Car Lowest Price - I highly recommend them.

NewCarsLowestPrice.com-Buy Car/Lease Car/Auto Quotes

His name is David and he is fantastic. Total pro. We have used him a couple times, and pals have used him many times. Everyone is always VERY happy. Saves you $$$$ and no hassle. He does car sales plus leases. Handles trade ins, if need be.

$159 flat fee.
He also brokers / researches loans with no markup. $59 fee.
Highly recommended!!!! Car dealers suck.

Oh yeah he does new, , trade ins, purchase, lease, whatever.

He will save you $$$. Guaranteed.
Just call him.
Trust me.

The usual lowest rate that AAA, costco or the dealers will offer is $500 above "dealer invoice" for a new car.
However there are always internal kickbacks and bonuses that are hidden in the car dealer system. (Just read consumer reports magazine for this info)

David was able to get us $750 LESS THAN dealer invoice on our new SUV. He admits that was an exceptionally good deal but it gives some indication.

He deals directly with the dealers, and then the winning dealership actually brings the car to your door. If you want you can take it for a test drive (I recommend this) then you sign the paperwork. Takes about an hour. No stupid pressure for overpriced add ons... Mats... Underbody sprays you don't need... Etc.

So it is the dealer that brings you your car.

Plus David deals with loans, but without markup. The dealers ALWAYS mark up the loans, in a hidden way. Again - it is the actual bank that does the loan for us, not david. He just finds the best deal.

The paperwork all happens at delivery at your home.... Including any loan paperwork.
Super easy.

:-)

His fee also includes unlimited phone consultation. He is a car guru and can advise you on different makes and models.
:-)

No, I do not benefit if you hire him.

I don't know if you're a Costco member or not but they have a GM Holiday promotion going on now.

Also here's a recent thread with an entertaining broker discussion.

The broker I list above will be cheaper than Costco or AAA, etc.

I am positive.
