Altura Credit Union member Roxana Alshalaldeh and her son Yussef recently used Auto Expert to purchase their new 2010 Volkswagen GTI.  Aaron Lynn assisted the Alshaladeh family in the search and delivery of their new vehicle.  By choosing Auto Expert, these members were able to save a couple hundred dollars!

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.

Cars sold through Auto Expert are inspected by the selling dealer and not by Auto Expert and
it is the selling dealer’s responsibility to thoroughly inspect all vehicles before they are sold
