Did NOT save time or money

by , Jun 19, 2011 Rated a Very Helpful Review
I just had a very unpleasant experience with the Costco buying program involving Honda Windward in Hawaii, but I believe it was largely due to the bombastic style of the salesman.  As to that, he refused to let us see the car until he had gone ...

BUYER BEWARE!! Costco will refer you to a dealership that is usually very professional and courteous, (because they know you come to them trusting and in good faith), while ripping you a new one.  I found better or just as ...

Costco Auto Program is Worthless!!! Only makes you believe you saved money.

by , Jun 1, 2008 Rated a Very Helpful Review
The Costco Auto Program is a scam. I cannot believe Costco tells people they will save an average of $1000. In actual practice, if you follow the instructions, it leads you to a dealer who quotes you the MSRP, Invoice and Costco price that is close ...

I’ve done research and contacted online car buying services for my last 3 cars. I have found that this is by far the easiest way of doing things. The salesmen treat you differently, you get a set price, and it is a fairly quick process. The salesmen ...

A Win/Win Situation. If They Have What You Want

by , Nov 20, 2001 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: Good prices, treated very well.
Cons: Only available in certain areas.
Costco’s Auto program can best be summed up as a bunch of numbers combined together to reduce another set of numbers—(aka a phone number called to reduce your car payments). Although Costco may display a brand new shiny car out front of...

The Costco Auto Program puts you into a rarified position with the specialized Costco sales reps. at most dealerships....PROVIDED you have done your "homework" beforehand, and NOT begun dealing with a salesperson that does NOT specialize in the Costco...
