AAA or Costco Auto Purchasing Service

Has anyone had any experience purchasing a new vehicle through AAA or Costco Auto Purchasing Service? I need feedbacks to evaluate any financial gains. Thanks.

I'll be buying a new car soon for my daily work commute. I've narrowed my choice to either an '02 Toyota Corolla S Auto or '02 Honda Civic LX Sedan Auto. With the options that I want, the Corolla would cost $15,248 MSRP (includes $455 dest. charge) and the Civic would cost $16,600 MSRP (includes $440 dest. charge). What would be a realistic asking price to close the deal?

If you're going Toyota, have you checked out the Echo, cheaper than the Corolla with more interior size, great gas mileage, and nice handling--with some pep. Plus it has a definite weirdness factor.

Even though I love my Civic, the Echo is definitely on my list for my possible next commuter car.

Check out this amusing and informative review from click and clack of Cartalk fame:
BTW, what is the AAA car purchasing service?

I'm a member and I checked out their web page and couldn't find anything about a car purchasing service.

Re internet car purchasing I tried Autobytel while I'm waiting for my Ody at a local dealer. I got an email from another local dealer about a "special internet" offer. Their special offer? MSRP and a 6 month wait. (I'm already in month two of my wait with the first dealer.) I emailed back and asked if their special offer was a joke. No response to that--so far.

Just got home from the Barry Manilow concert and I had a chat with a Toyota Prius owner before the show I'll be at the L.A. Auto Show tomorrow and will be inquiring about the Prius. It sounds like a good choice.</font>
True, but Honda will be bringing to market, I believe for the 2003 model year, a Civic hybrid.
