Buying a car? Let us help you.

If you haven’t bought a car in a while, you’re probably in for a little sticker shock. Just five years ago, the national average price of a new car was about $28,000. But with today’s state-of-the-art safety features, infotainment systems, and creature comforts, that average is now about $32,000.

When making a significant purchase, we all want value. You already trust AAA for Roadside Assistance, insurance, and travel planning services, but did you know we can help you buy a new or used vehicle? The AAA Car Buying Service is a free member benefit that can save you time, money, and stress.

If you’re still deciding which car to buy, the wealth of research tools available at AAA.com/auto can save you precious time in gathering data. For example, you can get side-by-side comparisons of vehicle features, government safety ratings, and pricing for competing models.

Once you’ve settled on a vehicle, the AAA Car Buying Service can provide online estimated member pricing for most new cars–based on the car’s year, make, model, trim, and options–at a Certified Dealer. This means you can have a car’s estimated price before you even visit a dealer. It’s an easier way of buying a car that can result in savings. For many people, including myself, this is one of the service’s best features. You can learn more at AAA.com/auto.

Finally, with the AAA Car Buying Service, if you have a problem with a sales transaction at a Certified Dealer, we will work to resolve it. Helping to make the difficult task of buying a car easier and more affordable is just one more way we’re always with you.
