The AAA Auto Buying Service is an online service offered by the national company AAA, which is geared towards helping users find a car in good working condition at a price they can afford and have targeted. Features include naming a target price, going through a "trusted dealer program" and access to market reports, reviews, pictures and "true car pricing."
The AAA website allows users to first search using the state in which they reside and then enter various pieces of information to research a potential car purchase. The user can enter information such as the target price and receive a report showing which dealerships have cars on offer for that price. The program also has member savings of varying degrees for people who join the service.
AAA has a list of pre-screened dealerships that the company has certified as being trustworthy when it comes to both the price of the cars as well as the quality of the vehicles both cosmetically and mechanically. The service also allows users to check their trade-in value of their own car if they are attempting to get deeper discounts on their new purchase. The service applies to the purchase of new cars as well as used vehicles at select dealerships.
