About Carwoo.com

Carwoo.com is an easy way to find great deals on new cars. Through Carwoo you can compare and negotiate quotes from dealerships in your area to get the best price possible. There are over 10,000 new car dealerships in their database located throughout the nation.

Sign up on Carwoo and submit a description of the car you want to at least four dealerships of your choice. Within 24-48 hours you will receive different quotes from those selected to compare, there is no obligation to accept any of them.

The initial offers are just a jumping off point to start negotiating even lower prices. By using the lowest quote you can counter offer the other quotes until you receive a price that you are happy with. At that point, lock in the price and schedule a time to visit the dealership to pick up your new car.

There are two membership plans for potential car buyers to choose from. If you are only interested in one model vehicle, the Basic option is ideal for you and it is free. If you are interested in more than one vehicle you may subscribe to the Plus Plan which costs $99.00. With this plan you can request quotes for a maximum of three different model vehicles. Carwoo has a 100% satisfaction guarantee for paying members; if you don’t find any viable car options in your area or are simply dissatisfied with the service, you will receive a full refund.

One of Carwoo’s competitors, Truecar, works a little bit differently by providing customers the actual transaction pricing and data reflecting the average price paid for that model car. One issue that Truecar users found was that, through fine print and disclaimers, the prices they saw would not be applicable at the dealership. Truecar has also violated advertising laws, specifically one, referred to as bird-dogging. What this means is that they furnish dealerships leads from the website and are then paid $300.00, if a sale transpired, even though they did not actually handle the transaction.

Customer reviews online showed overall satisfaction with Carwoo’s service. Members found that the initial quotes supplied to them online started out lower than what they were offered at the dealership. In addition, most users also received some of the car quotes within just a couple hours of submitting their request.  Using Carwoo.com is one way to negotiate new car prices without having to engage with car salespersons at the dealership.

Great experience



July3, 2013

I was looking for a Hyundai Sonata and went on CarWoo! because I did not want to put my phone number in on some dealers website. Within 5 hours I had 3 offers and they were all well below the MSRP of the car. I went back and forth and the dealers were really helpful finding the colors and options I wanted. I ended up just being able to go into the dealership and get it all taken care of in the matter of a couple of hours and it was a great experience. I would recommend CarWoo! to anyone who is looking for a car, I ended up saving 17%!

The process was a mess and the price was a joke. Waste of time.

I have attempted to use Car Woo on several occassions. Never successful. In each case only had one or two dealers contact me. All prices were much higher than the prices I obtained via direct communication with the dealers.

Like any of the recent plethora of car buying services, Car Woo is good for those of us who dislike the art of negotiating. People get a discounted price but not the best price. For some that is enough.

I can tell you that certain areas for CarWoo! are better than others. I know for a fact Colorado, Florida, Massachusetts are all areas where they do not have many active dealers. If you call in the 877 number and ask them about your deal the customer service team is extremely helpful and responsive and they will get you more offers on your car.

The idea of CarWoo is that your contact information is protected until you decide that you are happy with an offer received from a local dealership. You are given the opportunity to negotiate anonymously on the site if you are dissatisfied with the offer you receive. All the communication back and forth with the dealer is done on the site with your contact information secured. If you think the price is high, tell the dealer. People who engage and communicate are more likely to get favorable pricing.
