Costco Auto Program

Costco Auto Program

If you’re not familiar with it, the Costco Auto Program is a good way to get special deals, pricing, and financing on new vehicles, RVs, and boats for all Costco members.  So, if you’re a Costco member and you’re looking to buy a new car or boat, you really should at least check out what kind of savings you can get by going through their auto program.  But you can take advantage of the auto program even before you buy by using their newly designed website for researching the car, boat, or RV, even factory certified pre-owned vehicles, that you are interested in purchasing or getting information about financing.  After you have figured out the model that you want, you can locate the dealer nearest you that participates in the Costco Auto Program and set up an appointment to get more information, including the prearranged Costco price.  And if you don’t think the price is right, you can always contact other dealers.  Here are some of the benefits to the Costco Auto Program:

  • A low, prearranged price that provides value
  • An easy, hassle-free experience at more than 2,200 participating dealerships nationwide
  • Dealerships that understand our program and our processes, and feature specially trained and certified Authorized Contacts to assist Costco members
  • Member advocates who are available seven days a week to answer questions, work with the dealership on the member’s behalf, verify pricing and even review purchase contracts – all to ensure we meet the member’s expectations for service and value

In the last 12 months, more than 500,000 Costco members have taken advantage of the Costco Auto Program to purchase new cars, trucks, RVs, or boats.   You can read some of the members’ opinions of the program through the Costco website or you can check out what my readers had to say last time I posted about the Costco Auto Program.

And if you’re in the market to buy a new car, there are plenty of deals available through the Costco Auto Program right now.  Just about all car makers have financing deals right now; from 0% – 2.9% depending on the manufacturer.  Hey, even Porsche has a financing deal through Costco; 1.9% on all 2010 models.  And if you’re not in the market for financing, then you can take advantage of hefty rebates from several manufacturers too.  But there are a couple of deals that really stand out:

Get deals on a Volvo XC90 or XC60

    Hi, I wanted to add my experience with trying to use the costco auto program. I am a huge costco fan – and try to buy as many things from them – and have always had a great experience dealing with Costco. However, I was not totally convinced with the costco auto program.

    I was in the market for a Honda certified Odyssey and decided to try out Costco. I entered in my car requirements and was immediately forwarded to a local honda dealership. It is one of the larger Honda dealerships in the Seattle metro area. So, a plus for Costco for getting set up with a larger shop – which hopefully equals to larger access to inventory. After that I got contacted by the dealership and he told me that basically they would give me 500$ off of the sticker price of the car. And basically the sticker prices at this dealership were not competitive. I ended up driving another 30 miles and getting another Honda certified Odyssey, which was 3000$ cheaper than the similarly equipped vans at the costco-alligned dealership. I told the dealer that there was another van with similar specs and if he could price match it. Of course, it didnt happen. I dont think that Costco really controls this experience of buying used cars at all – because there is no real price range set by Costco. Its a flat 500$ off the sticker price. And the sticker price is at purely at the mercy of the dealer.

    This is a useful program. One year ago we researched prices on a Toyota Corolla. The designated dealer was far from us, but was willing to work with us by email and phone. When we first went to a different dealer (closer to us) to test drive, they offered to match the Costco price we had been quoted. So while we didn’t end up buying through the Costco program, we got the Costco price. Another thing that was nice is that once Costco was mentioned, all the drawn-out game playing wheedling was eliminated, and both dealers communicated simply and directly.

    The Costco price was a good price: the same week my sister bought the same car, and they paid about $1000 more than we did, after supposedly negotiating to the best possible price. On this cheap little car, the Costco price worked out to be about a 6% discount. (The AAA auto club also has pre-negotiated special pricing, but I don’t know how it compares to the Costco prices.)

    While we’re on the topic of Costco and car discounts, Costco Executive members get free roadside rescue service and guaranteed renewals on their auto policies with Ameriprise.

    We recently switched over to them for both our auto and home policies. We found their rates on auto to be very comparable to what we had been paying with our old insurer, but their rates on homeowners insurance were much lower. (Also, Costco Executive members get free glass breakage coverage and free hme lockout service with Ameriprise homeowner insurance policies.) The switch went very smoothly and so far we’ve been very pleased.
