Costco Auto Program Review

Introduction

This hub is a review of Costco Auto Program.

First, this was my first experience with Costco Auto Program. I've never used Costco Auto Program before. I don't like spending hours and multiple visits to negotiate the best deal. I bought all my cars at CarMax, where they give me a set price. May not be the lowest price possible, but usually very good deals. But when I moved to Washington State, there was no CarMax in the state. So I thought I should give Costco Auto Program a try since I heard about it so many times as a Costco member.

Please note that this hub is solely based on one experience, therefore may not be the most comprehensive review of the Costco Auto Program. However, you can get a general idea of what you can expect.

Other Minor Facts

At the end, Costco Auto Program beat my local Dodge dealership's offer by $243 which was 3.3 miles away from my home. But when I mentioned the $243 difference, my local dealership gladly matched it.

Also, in Washington State, the sales tax is different from a city to city. And my local sales tax was 8.9% compared to 9.7% in the city where the Costco Authorized Dealership was.
