When retired teacher Delphina Pinto went car-shopping in July 2015, she knew exactly what make and model she wanted.
What she didn’t know was what local dealerships were charging and what she should pay.
“I checked out the NEA Auto Buying Program,” Pinto said, “and I found their TRUECar price curve. It shows you what others are paying for the car you want in your local area, so you know you’re getting a good deal.”
Before visiting her dealership, Pinto got upfront dealer pricing information and locked in a guaranteed savings of almost $2,000 through NEA’s Auto Buying Program.
“I brought that information with me when I went to the dealership, and they actually reduced the price even further,” she said. Her final payment, including taxes and fees, was $3,000 less than the sticker price.
“I would tell other CEA active and retired members to check it out,” Pinto says. “You have nothing to lose. Bring your NEA Auto Buying quote to your dealership and ask if they can meet it or do even better.”
