What is the Auto Buying Service?

This service is designed to save you time and money when looking for a car. It’s powered by TrueCar®, our national auto purchasing partner. With the Auto Buying Service, you can find the vehicle you want, see what others have paid and enjoy guaranteed savings.* Best of all, you’re under no obligation whatsoever to purchase.

It’s remarkably easy to buy a car. Here’s how it works:
  • Get pre-approved online for an ALEC auto loan, over the phone, or at your nearest ALEC Service Center.**
  • Visit our Auto Buying Service online, research a new car based on your preferences, search thousands of pre-owned inventories, and see prices guaranteed by the dealer.
  • Print your Guaranteed Savings Certificate, which includes a summary of your car and your dealer contact information, so you can arrange a test drive and confirm availability.
  • Present your Guaranteed Savings Certificate to your dealer for an easy and hassle-free car-buying experience.

Also, with upfront pricing from TrueCar®, you can say no to unwanted hidden surprises.

* Guaranteed Savings represents the amount a TrueCar® Certified Dealer guarantees you will save off the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price "MSRP" on any in-stock vehicle that is the same make, model and trim as your preferred vehicle. The Guaranteed Savings based on a vehicle without factory or dealer installed options and includes generally available manufacturer incentives. Guaranteed Savings currently not available in all states. In these instances, a "target price" is presented, which reflects a market-based example of what you can reasonably expect to pay for a vehicle configured with your desired options.

** All loans are subject to credit approval.
