New AAA app makes auto buying easier

Buying a new car is certainly stressful, but being armed with AAA’s new Auto Buying Tools app can make the process a lot easier by providing quick access to valuable information, including market pricing.

Available on the Apple iPhone, AAA’s new Auto Buying Tools app gives consumers the ability to modify car details in real-time and refresh pricing data on the show room floor. The tool will give consumers the confidence and information they need to make an educated decision when buying a car.

With AAA’s Auto Buying Tools app, prospective buyers can build the car they want, including options and available incentives, while viewing market pricing, crash safety ratings, AAA reviews, images, and more.

Using the new AAA Auto Buying Tools app, you can:

  • Search new cars by make, model, style, and list price
  • Build your ideal car, down to color and trim, and compare two customized vehicles
  • Review features, specs, and crash safety ratings
  • Save searches and cars to a favorites list, and share car details on Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail

AAA’s Auto Buying Tools app is the fifth from AAA and is available for free from the iTunes App Store. For more details, visit The other AAA apps include:
