“I cannot speak highly enough of Cartelligent. It was like buying a car from a trusted friend. I really felt my advisor helped me make an informed decision as I was so concerned about safety features, and price of course. I am thrilled with my new Prius.”
Maggie T – Toyota Prius
“I was skeptical about the process and the value I would receive. Turns out i had nothing to be worried about. Cartelligent far exceeded my expectations.”

“Hilary was unbelievably helpful in her responsiveness and complete transparency. I had never leased a car before and she offered so much advice from her own first-hand experiences, it really put me at ease.”

“My Cartelligent advisor made it a great transaction, in terms of ease, simplicity, adding value to my decision-making (both buy and sell side), and personal touch. I can’t say enough good things about Cartelligent and would not hesitate to refer the service to a friend.”

What’s the catch?There is no catch. We’re a customer service first company and that’s what you’re paying for. We work hard to find the right car for you, saving you hours of online research, dealership visits, and time at the negotiating table.
How long is the entire process?For most clients it’s about 4 days. We work on your schedule and get you the new car you want in as little as a day. We can also help you special order your precise build in 2-3 months.
How much money can I save?You can typically save thousands of dollars off MSRP. We work together to make sure that you not only get a great price on the vehicle, but also on lease and finance rates, trade-in value and any additional products that make sense for you.
Can you help people who do not live or work in California?We charge for our service when you decide to hire us to find the new car you want at a great price. This also allows us maintain our below-market pricing by taking only serious buyers to dealerships.
Can I buy outside of California?No. At this time, we’re only able to work with clients who plan to register their new car in California.
