Auto Expert Insider
When looking for a vehicle, remember Auto Expert can assist you. We deal directly with the management of the dealership, removing the salesperson’s commission.  We work with a selection of dealerships across southern California, so our inventory (both new and used) is endless. By using Auto Expert to find and locate your vehicle, you can still benefit from the dealer’s incentives, including the rebates and financing terms. 

In addition, we have separate trade-in vendors who bid on your trade. This allows for a fair appraisal without influencing the purchase price of your new vehicle. We also offer aftermarket products that can be installed on your vehicle. We use the same vendors and products the dealers use, but for less cost to you. Contact us today for more information at 1-800-359-4567 or visit www.autoexpertonline.com.

The Auto Expert Difference


  • We are your personal shopper from beginning to end, and everything in between. 
  • We remove the salesperons’ commission. 
  • We receive a volume discount.
  • Our inventory is “endless”.
  • We have separate trade-in vendors who bid on your trade, without influencing the purchase price of your new vehicle.

Dealers, Salesperson – Individual walking onto a dealer lot

  • The salesperson will add their commission onto the price of the car.
  • Usually a low-ball amount for your trade.
  • Sell aftermarket products, GAP and extended warranties at inflated prices.

Dealers, Internet Sales Managers

  • Just like an individual sales person at the dealer, just their territory is the Internet.
  • Chance of the Bait and Switch.
  • You still have to pick up the vehicle at the dealer.

Private Party

  • A vehicle for sale directly from the owner.
  • Usually great for older, inexpensive vehicles.
  • Auto Expert does not find their vehicles through private parties because of the issue of warranties and other issues a private party is not able to cover.

Other brokering services, like Costco and AAA

  • Most brokering companies, excluding Auto Expert, only coordinates in finding a recommended dealer. 
  • You still have to go to the dealer of choice, meet with the finance person, and wait to have the vehicle prepped before you can leave the dealer which adds time and stress to the process.
