Dealer Promise

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.**
