For Smart Buyers Only



SPEC-IT BID-IT BUY-IT is The Auto Channel's unique, innovative tool to help new consumers maximize their purchasing and negotiating potential.  Here's how it works: 

SPEC-IT: Use the information on TACH to help determine which exact car meets all your criteria. A TACH New Car Sticker will be generated. This form will include the make, model, and options chosen, along with actual factory codes, total MSRP, and dealer invoice cost. 

BID-IT: The completed form can be printed out and taken or faxed to the dealer(s) of your choice.  The form also includes a request that dealers provide additional information about themselves and how they do business.  You can also forward a copy of this form via e-Mail to any NADA member dealer in the U.S. for them to bid on your exact car.

BUY-IT: Because you can give the dealer the exact specs of the car you want to buy, you can compare apples-to-apples, and see which dealer will really make the best deal on the exact car you want to buy.

The SPEC-IT BID-IT BUY-IT form is automatically attached to the Buyers Guide results data that is retrieved after submitting a request for information.  As you scroll down the page, just click in the appropriate places and select the print command on your browser's menu.
