About TrueCar

Buying and owning a car is one of the most important moments in a person’s life. An automobile provides the freedom to pursue life’s dreams and ambitions. With our vast dealer network TrueCar quickly became known for creating a marketplace where consumers purchase vehicles with transparent up-front pricing. TrueCar’s next vision is to revolutionize the car shopping and buying experience within vertical marketplaces. Think of experiences such as Airbnb, Zillow, Thumbtack or Amazon. These kinds of experiences have changed how people take vacations, buy homes, find home service professionals and buy goods online. These kinds of innovations haven’t been brought to the automotive industry, which is a massive consumer market, and there is no company better positioned to innovate and deliver on this vision than TrueCar. That these kinds of innovations haven’t been brought to the automotive industry represents an opportunity on which TrueCar is uniquely positioned to capitalize.
