    Costco auto purchase program

    Has anybody used this program? Thoughts?
    I am looking for a GMC truck but Costco doesnít have a dealer in this area. Closest Iíve found is Houston.
    You guys ever go that far to buy vehicles?
    Earlier, I got recommendations for Mossy in Picayune so Iíll check them as well.
    Thanks!

    Didn't even know Costco had that program!

    I actually did fly from Nola to Houston to get my car, about a year ago. I bought it through Carvana (phenomenal experience if you're shopping for pre-owned -- can't recommend enough), and I had the choice of either having it delivered to my house for a couple hundred bucks or picking up at the nearest dealership and having my flight/taxi reimbursed, so I took the latter option and made a weekend of it.

    From what I was told from a friend who purchased through Costco it will be a set amount over Invoice.
    Invoice on vehicles does not show Dealer Holdback which is a percentage of cost that Dealers get back.

    we purchased our last 2 vehicles in Houston. Much larger selection and better pricing.
    No matter if you think you can or think you can't, you are probably right !!

    I have been buying from Hood Motors in Amite since 1964 and am well pleased with them.

    I used my costco program for my brother in law, it got him another $1000 for a GM vehicle. I think for GM it is 1000 to 2000 off depending on vehicle. If you can haggle, you can sometimes get a better deal just spending an extra 30 minutes haggling for a slightly better price.

    But if I were you, try the lafayette, breaux bridge area where they have a lot of oil field (or used to) as they seem to cut bigger deals.

    Thanks guys!
    The problem I’m seeing is all the trucks have expensive packages added on that I don’t want. Also one dealer told me supply for trucks is low due to COVID manufacturing backlogs.
    Same story for 4 person side by sides. Real or not, who knows!

    When I got my Explorer they did not have the one I wanted locally and the dealer looked until they found the exact one I wanted in Houston and then had it shipped here no muss no fuss.

    I do a lot of legwork online check at dealerships that are in nearby areas and see if you can find what you want and then give them a call.

    I know guys in CA that have gone out as far as Texas to get a truck, car, or motorcycle they wanted and then drive it home.

    Just got a costco circular and they have an extra $1500 off on certain Cadillacs for a limited time.

    I guess it depends on where in USA the vehicle in manufactured. Some had too much stock when no one was buying during covid. But the side by sides, RV's, boats, etc. All of those have been selling for high prices. Everyone bored to go outside. For real on those things

    I don’t know anything at all about Costco. But, I do know from personal experience that Mossy of Picayune is a great dealership.
