Free service pairs consumers with CARCHEX car buying experts to help negotiate best new or used car deal; complete peace of mind for the car buying experience.

HUNT VALLEY, MD — (Dec 10, 2007) — CARCHEX, the trusted source for professional automotive services for consumers and dealers, today announced the availability of Car Buying Concierge, a free service that helps consumers navigate the new and used car negotiating and buying process with complete peace of mind.

“Buying a new car can be an intimidating and stressful experience for anyone,” said Jason Goldsmith, CEO of CARCHEX. “Many car shoppers would love an experienced, third-party resource to help them find the new or used car they want at the best possible price. That’s exactly what we provide at no cost to the consumer.”

Consumers can access the CARCHEX Car Buying Concierge service through www.carchex.com. After submitting details on the new or used car model they are interested in, a CARCHEX Concierge will call the consumer to review information and preferences, such as colors, optional equipment and more. The concierge then acts as a car buying agent for the consumer and can negotiate with multiple dealers to secure the best deal. The service is not just about the price of the new car, either; the Concierge can negotiate trade-in value and financing terms for a purchase or a lease.

“The Car Buying Concierge is more than just a car-buying service,” said Goldsmith. “Through our Concierge, new car buyers can access key information such as invoice pricing, availability of incentives that may or may not be listed publicly, and the average price other buyers are paying in their area. Everything is structured to provide consumers with peace of mind and help them make an informed buying decision.

Goldsmith added, “Once a dealer agrees to a price with our Concierge on the consumer’s behalf, there’s no bait and switch. We hold them accountable to the offered price.”
