Terms of Service
This website (the "Site") is operated by CarQuotes Corporation ("Provider"). By using the Site, you hereby agree that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age and bound by all of the following provisions of these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to these Terms of Service, please do not use the Site
How the CarQuotes Service Works
This Site gives users the ability to request new and used vehicle price quotes from CarQuotes franchised vehicle dealers ("Dealers") in a designated geographic area (the "Quote Service"). While Provider expects each Dealer participating in the Quote Service to provide upfront price quotes and promptly respond to any inquiry from Site users, Provider does not and cannot represent, warrant, or guarantee that: (a) the performance or results of the Quote Services provided by any Dealer will be satisfactory to you, (b) any Dealer will promptly and professionally respond to any inquiry submitted through the Site or other correspondence or that there is a participating Dealer near you to respond to a request for a quote, or (c) the Quote Service or any Dealer will meet your needs.
Provider is not a Dealer, Broker or Agent
The Quote Service is a new and used vehicle referral service. Provider does not sell vehicles and is not a vehicle dealer. Moreover, Provider is not a vehicle broker and does not act as a buyer’s or seller’s agent. Provider is not a party to any transaction between any vehicle dealer and vehicle buyer and is not compensated based on the success or failure of any transaction between a vehicle dealer and vehicle buyer.
CarQuotes may provide users with upfront pricing from participating dealers when available. When a participating CarQuotes dealer is not available, CarQuotes may provide users with CarQuotes Target Pricing, which represents a suggested starting point in negotiations and is intended to be used as a guide only. If CarQuotes upfront pricing is not available, the actual selling price and the conditions of sale for a vehicle will be the result of your negotiation and agreement with the applicable vehicle dealer.
CarQuotes uses its best efforts to incorporate and display known fees and charges on the Site when applicable, including destination fees, regional advertising fees, gas charges and other miscellaneous changes. These values are subject to change at any time, and may vary on a regional basis. The Site does not include fees such as government fees and taxes, title and registration fees, finance charges, dealer document preparation fees, processing fees and emission testing and compliance charges.
All vehicle rebates, rebate expiration dates are subject to change without notice, and we do not assume any responsibility for errors or omissions. Some rebates are offered on a regional basis and not all dealerships may participate in that particular rebate promotion.
