What's the Deal With TrueCar? One Salesman's Take On The Service That Seems To Be Everywhere

A couple of weeks ago a middle-aged woman came to my dealership to buy one of our best-selling Bel Canto sedans. Before coming in, she had gone online and gotten a price quote from TrueCar. TrueCar passed along her contact information to us along with the quote. When I looked at the quote, which TrueCar calls a "Price Report," I was amazed by the amount of information it showed and its accuracy. The price was broken down like this:TrueCar Member Network Estimated Price: $24,019.00 Invoice…See More

Just What Does a Car Salesman DO, Anyway?

From the Series: Car Salesman ConfidentialOne thing I knew, back before the editors of Motor Trend were kind enough to allow me to do this blog, was that if “Car Salesman Confidential” was to be a success it could not be a monologue. It had to be a dialogue. A dialogue between salespeople and ‘civilians.’ It couldn’t be a place where a salesman sat on a pedestal, pontificating about his…See More

Young, inexperienced drivers have always gotten into more automobile accidents, but if you add in a lot of distractions, it's a recipe for disaster -- and a new Pacific Northwest research program is learning more about these risks while identifying approaches that may help reduce them.Distractions have been an issue since the age of the Model T, whether a driver was eating a sandwich or talking to a passenger. But the advent of cell phones, text messaging and heavy urban traffic has taken those…See More

In regards to posting protocol:

1. If you want discussion and ideas exchanged, feedback, etc. post using the ADM Forum...

2. If you want to share your ideas, strategies, best practices, a story, dealer experience, management philosophy amnd are more interested in getting your message out, rather than feedback and discussion, use the ADM Blog feature.

3. No Anonymity = No Censorship (On ADM you MUST disclose your true identity, but your opinions and statements will not be censored, unless porn or personal attacks in nature)

4. If you want to post a sales pitch, be prepared for very negative comments. We do not reward members who delete comments posted by others... Alternately, you can post a blog and not have it open for comments.
