    TrueCar now offers TrueCash

    "TrueCash gives you exclusive savings from leading carmakers based on your memberships with USAA, American Express, Consumer Reports, GEICO, plus many more. will only be available through TrueCar and our partners. Combined with other deals out there, it delivers savings like never before."

    They are trying to get the OEM's to participate by offering consumers a TrueCar incentive. Fiat is the first onboard, offering a TrueCar incentive of $1,000.

    Read more about it here - https://www.truecar.com/true-cash/

    Anyone watching this?

    Will more OEM's follow?

    I always assumed that you would have to pay a consumer to take a Fiat off your hands...

    Interesting, considering it was less that a week ago that AutoNation dropped their TrueCar contract. Must be a larger push from the OEM level than ever before. I have a feeling dealers will not enjoy this news, especially if it seeps into other OEMs.

    Thankfully it's just Fiat, they would do nearly anything to move that metal. None the less it's alarming. How can a non-Truecar Fiat dealer compete on pricing with other Fiat dealers on Truecar now? I think this would somehow go against an OEM franchise agreement regarding customer incentives for dealers. Maybe someone with more knowledge on the franchising agreements can comment.

    If I were a dealer I would be raising hell at the OEM, not that they care but they are pretty much forcing dealers to have to sign up with TC.

    I agree with Jlewis74 - absolutely not a good idea and I will let our OEMs know this.
