What Best Price Program Users Say
THANK YOU! You made buying a car so simple and easy. This is the first time ever that I can say it was a no nonsense experience. We received the price on our certificate, we were in and out in less than 2 hours and that included the test drive. You saved me thousands."- Heidi D., July 2015
When I got to the dealership it was clear that the price they offered would have been much higher but for your program. Saved me money and for that I'm grateful."- Aili B., Chicago, IL
We shopped around and used many different sites, but the U.S. News Best Price Program was by far the easiest and least time consuming way to get the best deal on our new pickup."- Kimberly P., Arlington, VA
I used the Guaranteed Savings Certificate at a dealership close to me. Very happy with the outcome."- Vince O., Palo Alto, CA
I actually bought 2 cars in the past several months utilizing the U.S. News Best Price Program, and each case has resulted in a good price with minimal haggling at the dealer. The program enabled me to do most of my shopping/dealing online. I have already recommended your program to several friends!"- Wes J., Atlantic Beach, FL
Several dealers responded. They were very competitive and I got a great deal. I have highly recommended the U.S. News Best Price Program to others."- Dale L., Washington DC
Very convenient and time saving. I used it again when my mom purchased a car and it is a fantastic website that makes the car buying process as painless as possible."- Scott K., Jacksonville, FL
This is a great program. I wish I had heard of it earlier."- David H., Berwyn, IL

Your configured vehicle may not be available or in-stock at the Certified Dealer. With Guaranteed Savings, the selected TrueCar Certified Dealer guarantees that you will receive at least a certain, stated minimum savings amount off the base Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP"), including any vehicle-specific manufacturer incentives that may be currently available. Guaranteed Savings only applies to new, in-stock vehicles at the selected TrueCar Certified Dealers. Incentives subject to certain terms, conditions and restrictions; see your TrueCar Certified Dealer for details.
** Between 7/1/15 and 9/30/15, the average estimated savings off MSRP presented by TrueCar Certified Dealers to users of TrueCar powered websites, based on users who configured virtual vehicles and who TrueCar identified as purchasing a new vehicle of the same make and model listed on the certificate from a Certified Dealer as of 10/31/2015, was $3,279, including applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives. Your actual savings may vary based on multiple factors including the vehicle you select, region, dealer, and applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives which are subject to change. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") is determined by the manufacturer, and may not reflect the price at which vehicles are generally sold in the dealer's trade area as not all vehicles are sold at MSRP. Each dealer sets its own pricing. TrueCar does not broker, sell or lease motor vehicles.
TrueCar operates the U.S. News Best Price Program ("Program"). The Program is not available in all locations.
Neither U.S. News & World Report nor TrueCar brokers, sells, or leases motor vehicles. Each Certified Dealer sets its own pricing, and will confirm actual vehicle availability from in-stock inventory, including options and color choices.

All information provided on this website is for informational purposes only. Information displayed through the Services related to any virtual vehicle you may configure, such as dealer cost, factory invoice, market average, MSRP, Target Price, Estimated Price, or Estimated Savings, either reflects or is based on TrueCar's analysis of market data and does not reflect a dealer's price for a vehicle consistent with your preferences. Any savings information that you may receive from a selling dealer or user, such as Estimated Member Savings, Estimated Member Price, and Member Savings, is provided directly to you by the selling dealer or user, and is not provided by TrueCar. Neither the accuracy of information provided on this website by selling dealers and users, nor the availability, quality, or safety of vehicles, is guaranteed or controlled by TrueCar, and TrueCar assumes no responsibility for the foregoing. You agree that any reliance on the information on this website is at your own risk.

By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that participating dealers may not have in inventory a new vehicle that exactly matches any virtual vehicle you may configure on the website, and certain models or configurations may not be available. Your dealer will confirm vehicle availability, including available options and colors, from actual inventory. Each dealer sets and controls its own pricing. You may negotiate the purchase price directly with the dealer, and TrueCar plays no role in that negotiation. The savings information communicated directly to you by a selling dealer for a vehicle consistent with the preferences expressed in any virtual vehicle you may configure may change if the actual in-stock vehicle that you choose to buy differs from the configuration of your virtual vehicle. Used vehicles are subject to prior sale.

- ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR THE TRUECAR FOR SALE BY OWNER SERVICE
If you use or participate in the "For Sale By Owner" Service, the following additional terms apply:
TrueCar offers a "For Sale By Owner" ("FSBO") service ("FSBO Service") whereby you may list your used vehicle for sale. When you offer a vehicle for sale through the FSBO Service, you must be prepared to sell that vehicle at the price you listed the vehicle, and have possession of the actual vehicle listed with the ability to transfer valid title. You are required to provide certain identifying and contact information, which must accurately identify yourself so potential buyers can communicate directly with you. You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any vehicle listed for sale on the FSBO Service, nor may you use the FSBO Service to promote, without our prior written permission, any other website, product or service. By using the FSBO Service, you represent, warrant, and covenant that (i) you are not a motor vehicle dealer, (ii) you are not listing a vehicle for sale in your capacity as an owner, employee or representative of a dealer, and (iii) neither you, nor anyone acting on your behalf, will list more than one (1) vehicle for sale at a time. Listings may not appear for up to 24 hours following your submission of the vehicle.
The FSBO Service is provided for informational purposes only. You alone are responsible for any sale or purchase transaction you engage in. We cannot (i) protect you from potential fraud or other misconduct, and (ii) assure that a seller has good title to the listed vehicle or that a buyer will supply good funds. Buyers and sellers need to exercise caution when using the FSBO Service, and for example should use the same approach they would use when using a classified ad service in a newspaper.
Information about a particular vehicle is supplied by the seller, not by TrueCar. The price and other terms of any sale are subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller, and TrueCar plays no role in that negotiation. The prices listed by the seller on the FSBO Service often exclude sales tax, finance charges, title, license, regulatory, documentary, emission testing, and/or compliance fees, any or all of which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final sale price of a particular vehicle. We do not verify the information that sellers supply, nor guarantee the vehicles they offer. In an effort to combat Internet fraud, some listings may be screened before being posted publicly, which may delay display of your listing.
By listing a vehicle for sale on the FSBO Service, you agree to use the email addresses of those responding to your listing only for purposes of communicating with them about the potential sale of that vehicle. TrueCar does not guarantee that a vehicle listed for sale through the FSBO Service is available, as it may already have been sold. By accessing the FSBO Service, you agree not to use information concerning other users of the FSBO Service, nor the vehicles they have listed or searched for on the FSBO Service or otherwise expressed an interest in through the FSBO Service (including listing information, user names, email addresses, telephone numbers, and/or other information), for any purpose other than in connection with the potential purchase or sale of a listed vehicle.
TrueCar reserves the right to deny use of the FSBO Service to anyone who does not comply with these requirements or who otherwise uses the FSBO Service in a manner we consider inappropriate. Responsibility for the information contained in each listing lies with each seller, and you alone are responsible for material you post and for the content of all email messages you transmit through the FSBO Service. We may perform random or selective quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer vehicles for sale through the FSBO Service are prepared to sell listed vehicles at the specified prices and terms provided by the seller through the FSBO Service. By using the FSBO Service, you agree to cooperate in these quality assurance tests. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller is engaging in "bait and switch" or other unfair or deceptive practices, TrueCar reserves the right to deny that seller use of the FSBO Service.
THE TRUECAR ENTITIES DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT YOU WILL SELL YOUR VEHICLE, OBTAIN AN ACCEPTABLE PRICE FOR YOUR VEHICLE, RECEIVE LEGITIMATE INQUIRIES OR SOLICITATIONS FROM QUALIFIED BUYERS, OR RECEIVE ANY INQUIRIES REGARDING YOUR VEHICLE FOR SALE.

TrueCar, Inc. ("TrueCar", "we", "our", or "us") is an online automotive information and communications platform ("Service"). TrueCar operates the Service on http://www.truecar.com and on TrueCar's partner websites.
The Service is hosted in the United States and is available on general audience websites, which are not directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13). TrueCar does not knowingly collect PII from individuals under thirteen (13) years of age.
Collection of Information
If you browse through our website or through our partner website pages on which the Service appears without providing us any PII, we may gather and store information about your visit, such as your IP address, type of browser and operating system used, date and time you access the websites, pages you visit, and if you linked to this website from another website, the address of that website. This information will not identify you and is therefore considered "Non-PII".
Use and Sharing of Information
The PII we receive from you through the Internet may be used or shared by us with third parties including dealers, marketing businesses, lead generation businesses, our partners who make the Service available on their web pages, and our corporate affiliates (collectively "Affiliates"). In addition, there may be instances when TrueCar may access or disclose PII or Non-PII, including under the following circumstances: (i) to protect or defend the legal rights or property of TrueCar and its Affiliates; (ii) to protect the safety and security of users of the Services or members of the public including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) to comply with applicable law or legal process. In addition, if TrueCar sells all or part of its business or sells or transfers all or a material part of its assets, or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, we may transfer your PII or Non-PII to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
Cookies, Beacons, and Pixel Tags
From time to time, we may place cookies and web beacons on your computer to collect anonymous data related to your use of our website and your use of the pages of our partner websites on which the Service is available, including website usage analytics, and content and advertising personalization. "Cookies" are small identifiers sent from a web server that are stored on your computer's hard drive for the purpose of identifying your browser during interaction on websites. Cookies may be used to store items such as identifiers and user preferences. A website may set a cookie to the web browser if the web browser's preferences allow it. A web browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has set, not those set by other websites. "Web beacons" are invisible electronic images, called a single-pixel (1x1) or clear GIF, which can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed.
Analytics Service Providers
We may allow certain third-party analytics service providers to include web beacons within the pages of this website and within the pages of our partner websites on which the Service is available. We may also share portions of our log file data, including IP addresses, with these service providers for analytics purposes. These service providers aggregate information about what you see and interact with on our website and on the pages of our partner websites on which the Service is available.

None of the PII that you provide to us when using this website or the Service is shared with our third party analytics service providers or advertisers as part of our analytics programs.
Applications and Widgets
Advertisements, Ad Networks and Other Third Parties
We may allow certain third-party companies to serve advertisements to you and collect anonymous information regarding your use of this website and your use of the pages of our partner websites on which the Service is available. Typically, these companies are third party ad servers, ad agencies, technology vendors, providers of sponsored content and research firms, and they may include a web beacon within this website or within the pages of our partner websites on which the Service is available to provide customization, auditing, research and reporting for us, our partners, and advertisers. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and/or web beacons from the third-party's web servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a webpage from their website directly. These companies may also use these cookies or web beacons to collect information on the website pages we host to deliver you customized content and/or ads on both this and other websites.
We may customize some ads tailored to your interests when you visit certain pages of this website and certain pages of our partner websites on which the Service is available, but we do not provide any PII to an advertiser when you interact with or view a customized advertisement. However, when you view or interact with an advertisement, the possibility exists that the advertiser will make the assumption that you are interested in the subject matter of the advertisements.
Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. If you use the Service, you will continue to receive generic advertisements. If you wish to opt-out of receiving generic advertisements from us, please see our Opt-Out Policy below.
TrueCar uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel, and physical security measures designed to safeguard PII in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification. In addition, TrueCar uses reasonable methods in an effort to make sure that the PII we store about you is consistent with the updated information you provide to us.
