Starting this month, club members can take advantage of the program by going to AAA.com/buyacar to find pricing information on the vehicles of their choice.

"Part of TrueCar's heritage is providing members of our partner programs access to dealers who are committed to delivering hassle-free buying experiences," said Scott Painter, founder and CEO of TrueCar. "We're thrilled to extend the benefits of TrueCar beyond the 30 million AAA members we already serve."

The partnership connects AAA Northern California, Nevada and Utah's more than 4.2 million members to TrueCar Certified Dealers for a "No Surprises" buying experience and average savings of more than $3,000 off of manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP).

Members of TrueCar's affinity partners have purchased over 1 million vehicles through the nearly 580 auto-buying programs powered by TrueCar and saved over $3 billion off MSRP. TrueCar is the leading auto-buying platform in the affinity auto-buying space and currently reaches 75 percent of U.S. households through these partnerships.
