    TrueCar only gives general base prices , options are not listed. If you watch the paper you will see trucks going for 3 to 5 K less , sometimes 10K LESS then sticker. You just have to wait for the sale , key word , wait for the best deal. Consumer Report will give you a detailed report for 14$ with all options prices so you can get low down on what exactly what the dealer paid, whats list and whats a good in between.

    See if my next article helps. It provides more detail of exactly what information is provided and begins to discuss how it can be used. I'll be doing a series of articles this week on TrueCar so stay tuned.

    Yes, TrueCar is info is good, but other than having a "certificate" to print out, I don't see much point. I certainly wasn't able to get the price listed on TrueCar, and just walked away. I guess I don't really understand how the TrueCar model really works. Looking forward to more on this topic. Right now the TrueCar info is just additional data in your pocket to help with negotiations.
