About the Costco Auto Program
Established in 1989, the Costco Auto Program has become a leader in the auto-buying industry and consistently ranks as one of the top member-based auto-buying programs available today. In the last 5 years, more than 1 million members have purchased a vehicle through the Costco Auto Program.
The mission is simple: Ensure Costco members have a great vehicle buying experience. Those nine words translate into multiple member benefits:
- A low, prearranged price that provides value
- An easy, hassle-free experience at more than 2,200 participating dealerships nationwide
- Dealerships that understand our program and our processes, and feature specially trained and certified Authorized Contacts to assist Costco members
- Member advocates who are available seven days a week to answer questions, work with the dealership on the member's behalf, verify pricing and even review purchase contracts - all to ensure we meet the member's expectations for service and value
The Costco Auto Program understands that value is defined by more than a great price - our commitment to providing an overall exceptional buying experience and the level of member support offered by our staff is what sets us apart. In the last 12 months, nearly 500,000 members turned to the Costco Auto Program to help them purchase their vehicle, boat or RV. Additionally, Costco members who used the program gave us the highest rankings for service, value, experience, courteous dealership contacts and more.
