I just bought a new car and worked with Carsala to find what was available and then to negotiate the price. I was very happy with the result which was a reduction in the price of over $2K!
Carsala will generate an initial report for free before you sign up. I didn't find this report to be all that useful since I couldn't specify the exact model that I wanted. However, I then decided (after going by a dealership to see what was in stock) that I just didn't have the time to research everything, deal with the negotiations, etc so got in touch with them again and signed up. The report they generate post-signup had all of the detail that I needed on every car. From there, they did a great job with the negotiation (as noted above) and communication back to me. The process was also super-fast, I think I signed up on Monday and bought the car on Thursday.
Definitely worth the 20% (or $300 max in my case since they saved me more than $1500), I've already recommended them a few times and will definitely use again in the future.
I had a great experience with CARSALA and Sirra jobe in particular. Sirra was extremely professional and helpful in every way. I ended up buying a CPO 2007Audi S6 from Allison Audi in Reno. I felt thoroughly secure with the purchase and now have the car in my possession. Using the negotiation service was perfect, I saved close to 5K at the end of the day. The cream was having the ability to choose from several cars and drive the best possible price without the wasted time and stress of typical car-lot negotiations. I will never buy another used vehicle without the help of Carsala.
With 2 kids and a very busy life, I was so happy to serendipitously find Carsala to help me source and secure our new mimivan (yea..I know my hipness factor is diminishing by the second). They were uber-responsive, thorough and took the hassle out of the search and haggling process. My account rep was Sirra and she ROCKS!. She worked hard to get me the best deal, was never pushy and we had some laughs along the way. The pricing for the service is very reasonable and I will use them again for sure.
I was skeptical of a car buying service but was quite pleased with the time and effort that Carsala put into helping me find a car, and in particular my broker Jude Carter. I researched other services before choosing Carsala. One can't expect miracles from any service and I still had to do a lot of the research (the car I wanted was hard to find), but Jude really helped guide me through the process all the way to the end. I am sure that it worked out better than doing it on my own or a "no-haggle" price or similar, cheap services. Buying a car is hard work and having someone work with you who really seems to care about doing it right made a big difference both in the outcome and in my peace of mind.
Carsala is a car buying service that can save you hours of work looking for cars and thousands of dollars. We use professional negotiators to haggle with dealers on your behalf.
Established in 2007.
Carsala was founded based on our own frustration with the used car buying process today. We raised capital in 2008.
I started Carsala because my last car buying experience was painful. It took too long, I was terrified of paying too much, and I had no one to trust. I needed an "uncle Vinny" who used to sell cars and would help me navigate the buying process and negotiate for me. That's why I started Carsala. Carsala wants to be your "uncle Vinny." We're a young company and still learning, but our expert negotiators (not me) have now negotiated thousands of great deals for our customers. We know what buttons to push and how and when to push them to get the best price.
