Anyone have any luck with any newcar buying service? I hate new car buying negotiations and need all the help I can get. I live in so cal.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I was in this situation 4 weeks ago and live in So Cal also. I tried both the the Costco auto program and the True Car program through my credit union. Both will offer non negotiatable pricing so it is a good reference when shopping to try to get a dealership to price match or beat whichever quote that you have. I wound up visiting several dealerships and bought from Penske Honda in Ontario which doesn't participate in either program, but they did honor the written quote from another Honda dealership and beat it by $100.

If you're dead set against haggling, you can get OK prices from TrueCar or CarsDirect.

But the best way to get a good price is to email a whole bunch of dealers and have them compete for your business.
