Four of the leading AAA (American Automobile Association) clubs in the United States recently selected CarsDirect.com as their online car buying service.

Included in the selection are Automobile Club of New York, serving the metropolitan New York area; the California State Automobile Association (CSAA), serving Northern California, Nevada and Utah; AAA Michigan; and AAA Washington, serving central and western Washington state.

The clubs’ combined 9.5 million members can now conduct research and order vehicles from CarsDirect.com in connection with a visit to www.aaa.com. After logging on to www.aaa.com, members of the four AAA clubs simply enter their zip code to get forwarded to their club’s website. By clicking on the new car buying option on the club’s website, shoppers have access to CarsDirect.com’s comprehensive research center tools to help narrow the search for the right vehicle by manufacturer, price range, and vehicle type. Once a vehicle and factory options have been selected, CarsDirect.com displays its signature no-haggle, upfront price for that car, with useful sample monthly loan and lease payments based on typical financing terms. The CarsDirect.com Price Guarantee ensures that customers can obtain the lowest possible price when purchasing a new car or truck.

After the customer has submitted the vehicle order, a trained Vehicle Specialist will confirm the availability of the chosen vehicle and arrange a convenient time frame to take delivery of the new vehicle at one of CarsDirect.com’s 3,000 priority auto dealerships. At the dealership, the car buyer simply completes and signs the necessary paperwork.
