We do not guarantee either expressly or by implication that we will find a vehicle that meets your specifications. Exact matches can be extremely difficult to find because of geographic location, vehicle popularity, and limited production or factory-to-dealer allocations.

CREDIT EVALUATION

You are not required to apply for vehicle financing as a condition of your using this Website or any of the services offered hereon. Independent third party lenders ("lenders") and not Car.com provide all vehicle-financing programs. If you choose to apply for financing through one of these lenders, you do so with this understanding. You will be asked to submit an application for credit and other documentation, as the lender deems necessary in order to facilitate the loan. Payment information provided to you on this Website is for educational purposes only and shall not be considered as final. Your actual payment will be based upon, among other things, the results of an independent credit evaluation, current prevailing interest rates, and the length and amount of the loan requested.

REBATES AND INCENTIVES

Information regarding rebates or incentives as they appear on this Website are provided to Car.com from independent third party data providers and republished for educational benefit only. Though Car.com uses reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy of the information provided, such information is not intended to be a substitute for direct communication between you and the manufacturer or manufacturer's dealer/agent. Any regional and national cash incentives or rebates offered to consumers by the manufacturer are exclusively between you and the manufacturer or dealer and may affect the actual sale price of the vehicle. Car.com does not participate in any such program and is not responsible for ensuring the incentive amount or your receipt of such benefits.

INSURANCE RATE COMPARISONS

Information regarding insurance rates and comparisons as they appear on this Website are provided to Car.com from independent third party providers and republished for educational benefit only. Car.com is not an insurance broker acting on behalf of any consumer, nor is Car.com acting as an agent for a particular insurance company. Car.com is an information service where consumers may review a number of different automobile insurance products on the market today. The coverage presented by participating insurers is designed to meet the insurance needs of a majority of consumers. Your particular circumstances may differ and thus may require additional information. By supplying these information resources, Car.com is not making any recommendations or providing any advice as to whether or not any particular insurance coverage is suitable for your individual circumstance. Car.com does not endorse or recommend any specific insurance company or coverage plan. Your decision to select any particular insurance company and coverage plan should be based upon your own assessment of your individual needs and the amount of insurance coverage that meets those needs. In some cases, Car.com sources may provide comparative estimates that may be higher or lower depending upon individual underwriting criteria applied by particular insurers. This is not an application for insurance. All premiums displayed are estimates and not guaranteed.

VEHICLE HOLD REQUIREMENTS, DEPOSITS AND SERVICE FEES

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW THE AMOUNT AND NATURE OF ANY DEPOSIT YOU ARE BEING ASKED TO MAKE OR FEES BEING CHARGED TO YOU AS PART OF YOUR VEHICLE PURCHASE OR LEASE.

Car.com does not charge a fee to consumers for our services except as provided below. *

Any deposit requirement is strictly negotiable between you and the dealer (NOT Car.com). From time-to-time a vehicle dealer with whom you are negotiating for a purchase or lease may require a good faith monetary deposit as a good faith showing of your intent to purchase or lease a general make, model or type of vehicle and/or to hold a particular vehicle on your behalf.

Absent a specific agreement between you and the dealer, a dealer is not required to hold any vehicle off the market and is free to sell any vehicle at any time before you have executed a contract to purchase such vehicle. The act of submitting a purchase request through our Website does not place a hold on any specific vehicle in a dealer or manufacturer's inventory. A monetary deposit made by you to the dealer is not a guarantee that a specific vehicle will be available for you to purchase unless you and the dealer specifically agree to such term and the vehicle is clearly identified on a deposit receipt by the Vehicle Identification Number or Dealer Stock Number. It is your responsibility to confirm with the dealer that the vehicle will be held off the market until you can arrive at the dealership to complete the purchase and whether or not an additional deposit is necessary as a condition of the dealer holding the vehicle for you.

Whether your deposit is refundable or not is subject to your contractual agreement with the dealer and/or state law. You should not assume a deposit made by you towards the purchase or lease of a vehicle is fully refundable. Deposits made on special ordered vehicles may not be refundable in the event you ultimately do not complete the purchase or lease.
