How a CarBucket® works
Join a CarBucket
Choose your new car and join a group of local car buyers interested in the same brand of car as you.
Dealers compete by giving their lowest price for each car in the CarBucket. The dealer with the Lowest Group Price wins.
Take a test drive
Go to the winning dealership to test drive your car with no obligation to buy.
A new car-buying experience
Joining a CarBucket helps you get group discounts for
your new car through a process deeply rooted in transparency.
With CarBuckets, dealers compete for your business.
All CarBuckets certified dealers must abide by our Code of Conduct, which is rooted in complete transparency. Dealers are kicked off our platform for any violation of this agreement.*
*Read our Dealer Code of Conduct.
Car Buyer Pledge
- The main reason dealers give CarBuckets users real prices with all fees and add-ons disclosed is because they know our users are real car buyers committed to taking a test drive at the winning dealership.
Test Drive No-Show Fee
CarBuckets is free to use as long as you take a test drive at the dealership that gave you the Lowest Group Price. If you miss your test drive, you'll pay a $50 no-show fee. Please note your credit card is not charged when you join a CarBucket, and all test drive appointments will be 60 minutes or less.**
**Your credit card will not be charged when joining a CarBucket. Learn more.
CarBuckets is the only place where car dealers offer competitive bids for groups of car buyers.
The price you receive on CarBuckets is the price you’ll see at the dealership. No surprises! CarBuckets requires any dealer submitting bids to sign our Code of Conduct.
