Always negotiate the Out The Door (OTD) price when purchasing a car

Use our OTD wizard to get an instant view of the fees associated with purchasing your car and what you can expect at the dealership.

How to use

  1. Enter the selling price of the vehicle
  2. Enter the state where you’ll register the vehicle

Behind the scenes we’ll look up the taxes, title, and registration fees you’ll need to pay, plus the estimated doc fee in your area. With the Out-the-Door Price Calculator you’ll get a true sense for how much it will cost to purchase your next vehicle.

Don’t negotiate a monthly payment, negotiate the Out The Door Price instead.

Getting access to the out-the-door price (an industry term for the total cost to purchase a vehicle), is absolutely necessary, but many car shoppers don’t know to ask for it. This has all of the price, taxes, title, registration, and more.

Use the Out The Door Price To Your Advantage

Dealers will list their lowest price to show up first in lists, then surprise you with other fees. What looks like a higher price might have a better OTD price. Always make sure to get the OTD.
