You are kind of correct. Invoice price used to be legit until manufacturer introduced hold back to counter it.

Unhaggle will give you the same thing as CCC but for free in return for your info passing on to sales people.

I think the idea of these services is at least sales and you both know what the negotiation is starting from and and skip most of the song and dance about buying a new car.

Also a bonus is that most of these services also listed all the manufacturer's special offer for the month. So if you check month to month, you will see if there are any discount changes.

There is value in these services, but they aren't magic, and they don't take away the power of the automotive confusopoly.

What you get with these services is more information than your average uninformed person walking in off the street, and "decent" deal. People with more information of more time to haggle and grind can probbaly beat those deals pretty routinely, but I'm also sure a lot of people end up paying more.
